Orchard View is situated on 20 acres of private land which includes pasture, native bush, garden & riverside. The cottage overlooks the property witjh pine forest to the rear.

Well away from the road the cottage is ideally situated for families with children, trout fishermen (as the Riwaka River borders the property), & those people who just want to sit back and relax.

It is also a perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park or laze on the beaches of Kaiteriteri & Marahau which are all only 15 minutes away by car.

A day trip 'over the hill' to Golden Bay, Harewoods Hole and Hobbit country is a must.

Orchard View can 4 people in 2 bedrooms and freshly laundered bed linen & towels are provided. A fifth guest can be accommodated on the sofa bed & a cot is available on request.

The kitchen is equipped with electric stove, large fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster etc & in the living/dining area there is Sky TV, radio/CD player and telephone for local calls.

The large deck which catches the sun all day is furnished with gas BBQ, tables & chairs for outdoor living. Here you can relax, enjoy the stunning views across the valley, listen to the abundance of native birdsong and watch the antics of the chickens & peacocks.

A three minute stroll will bring you to the riverside or feel free to explore the property and make friends with the animals which include dogs, cats, horses, llamas, free range hens, turkeys, peacocks, ducks and other small farm animals.....plus plenty of native bird life such as the friendly wekas and fantails. Great for the children!

The Riwaka Resurgence is where the northern branch of the Riwaka River emerges from the depths of the Takaka Hill and is a 10 minute drive or an easy 40 minute walk away from the cottage.

Complimentary tea, coffee, sugar and condiments are provided on arrival as are basic cleaning materials. Other provisions can be found in Motueka a 15 minute drive away.

  • A wonderful place to stay with our two young children

    A wonderful place to stay with our two young children. They loved feeding the horses, meeting the very friendly dogs and talking to the hundreds of chickens! It is a charming little farm, and a standard hotel will seem rather boring to our children from now on! We were made to feel very welcome and loved experiencing the country life whilst being within a short drive to the cafes restaurants and shops in Motueka as well as the glorious sandy beaches of Abel Tasman.

  • This was our favourite bach out of the four we used on...

    This was our favourite bach out of the four we used on our NZ holiday. It was set amidst the most beautiful countryside and had a lovely view from the windows. We enjoyed the farm atmosphere and environment, with all the animals, geese, peafowls and chooks etc.. We will definitely recommend it to any family members visiting NZ

  • Orchard View Cottage is a cute and cosy kiwi style bach

    Orchard View Cottage is a cute and cosy kiwi style bach. We loved our stay. The property suited our needs for both location and peaceful country charm. It's located near a few attractions eg. the mountain bike park at Kaiteriteri, the NZ cycle trail, Motueka and with Golden Bay just over the hill, there is plenty to do. Or relax with a book on the verandah and enjoy watching all the chickens and animals. This was our second stay here and we'll return again!
