  • A great place to stay high up in the hills behind Motueka

    A great place to stay high up in the hills behind Motueka. We had a week there. Superb cottage with every attention to detail in a very natural way. We found our stay very relaxing and special with the privacy, bird life, views, all with comforts too. Great shower and bath. loo with a view. Step drive up, recommend doing in daylight for the first time. Plenty to do in the region.

  • The ultimate retreat experience

    The ultimate retreat experience. Rustic, this cabin in the clouds may be - roughing it, it is not! The shower and bath may be outdoor, but water is heated by gas so never runs out, and the pressure is high and satisfying. Panoramic views and a distance from others means you will only hear the birds (and an occasional plane letting out skydivers), the perfect place to work on that all over tan! Really enjoyed staying here and have already requested a return visit.

    There is a popular song in New Zealand about a Slice of Heaven I think it must have been written about the Hairy Hobbit. This place is outstanding, the view is magnificent, the bird song orchestral and the serenity complete. Don't be put off by the outside toilet and shower, just go.
