Description

  • Peaceful, quiet location. Away from the crowds yet close to all amenities.
  • Farm and domestic animals on site including chickens, dogs, cats, horses and llamas. Pet friendly.
  • 15 minutes to Abel Tasman Park, Marahau, Kaiteriteri and Motueka. Forty minutes to 'Hobbit Country'.

Orchard View is situated on 20 acres of private land which includes pasture, native bush, garden & riverside. The cottage overlooks the property with 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 sleep 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.

Special conditions: A port-a-cot and high chair are available on request. Prices are for up to 4 people. An additional charge of $15 per night will be made for each extra person. All school and public holidays charged at the high season rate of $135 per night. Two night minimum stay. Smoking outside only thank you. Well behaved pets allowed with prior notice when accompanied by responsible owners.

    The wee cottage was toastie warm on arrival as Kate popped the heaters on in anticipation of our arrival which was after dark due to the long drive up from Chrustchurch. I am sure children staying here would love the assortment of animals on the well kept property. We stayed in Autumn but I reackon it woukd be even more delightful in Summer especially with the Riwaka river so close. I strongly recomment popping up the road to the source of the Riwaka river with a picnic basket- beautiful spot!

    This is a simple but very well equipped cottage - just right for "getting away from it all" although Motueka, with all its shops, cafes etc is less than 15 min drive. The location is tranquil, being in the lovely Riwaka valley. It was lovely to sit on the verandah having breakfast in the morning sunlight with the farm's chooks in a compound nearby - great fun to watch them, and the two alpacas/llamas.

    The cottage was very well equipped, with all requirements met. We loved the country atmosphere, and being near beautiful native bush, and with the dogs, animals, birds and chickens.
