Enjoy the charm of a bygone era in this historic villa without missing out on the comforts of modern facilities.

Ideally situated 5 min drive from Kaiteriteri Beach or Motueka (or 15min to the stunning Abel Tasman). Alternatively, get there on your bike by cruising along the Great Taste Trail and grab a coffee along the way. Or pick up the pace at the Kaiteri Mountain Bike Park and then cool down in the sea at any of the golden beaches. Maybe try your luck kayaking or boating. Why not bring the rod and bring something back for the BBQ?

Ofcourse, an unforgettable journey into the Abel Tasman National Park is a must, while an adventure to scenic and artistic Golden Bay will also surely beckon!

Or perhaps simply explore from the back door and throw the frisbee around on the back field, walk along the Riwaka River or dare yourself to take a plunge in the clear water.

And for those rare rainy days: shops, supermarkets, restaurants, cafes, cinema and the library are all conveniently located down the road in Motueka. Or drive only an hour for a day in bustling Nelson City.

Special conditions: Linnen is to be stripped, dishes placed in dishwasher, floors vacuumed (if required) and general tidy please before departure, please. We'll remake beds and put dishes away, so you can move on to your next adventure :) Only if you're unable to this will a cleaning fee be required.

  • A great stay for all the family

    A great stay for all the family. The house was lovely and clean, and had all the basic amenities for a lovely stay. A good location for access to kaiteriteri and takaka hill. The owners were very approachable and communicated well prior to our stay. Thankyou for a great experience.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. We fell in love with the whole house with it amazing garden and backyard view of the mountain. I highly recommend this property to anyone especially as its so close to the picturesque Kaiteriteri and a 5 min drive to the Riwaka Resurgent. Thank you for your hospitality and opening your lovely home to us. We will definitely be coming back and will highly recommend it to others. Fa'afetai tele lava (Thank you)

  • Everything about our stay at Riwaka Villa was perfect

    Everything about our stay at Riwaka Villa was perfect. The kitchen was well-equipped, the dining/living area was sunny and spacious and the bedrooms comfortable. We very much enjoyed the yard and the green space behind the yard. The house was clean and tidy. The location was perfect for us as we had a fun adventure every day.

    Delightful stay in the villa, great kitchen and instant hot water with terrific shower. Delightful grounds with al fresco dining and the burble of chickens in the garden. Handy location to Abel Tasman Park, and central to the things we wanted to do in Golden and Tasman Bays.
