Set on our 5 ha property in the beautiful Orinoco Valley, and located well off the road and away from the sound of traffic, this very tranquil and well appointed 3 bedroom house looks out onto the Mt Arthur Range in the Kahurangi National Park. The house is carpeted throughout, and is tastefully furnished. Aside from 3 double bedrooms, there is also an enclosed sunroom off the lounge with a double sofa bed. In the bathroom there is a large ball and claw bath. There is also a separate shower room. Wifi available. Free to air television, with the choice of 15 channels, is available in both the lounge and dining room, as well as an extensive library of books, magazines, DVDs and VCR tapes. For outdoor living the paved patio, with stunning views around the valley, has outdoor furniture and a twin plate gas BBQ. The water supply is the purest of spring water, sourced from an underground spring. 2 minutes to the Motueka River, just over 15 minutes to Motueka, 35 minutes to Kaiteriteri, Abel Tasman National Park and Kahurangi National Park walking tracks, 45 minutes to Nelson, and just over an hour to Golden Bay and Nelson Lakes National Park. Excellent trout fishing, picnic spots, swimming, art and craft outlets, vineyards and restaurants are all close by. Numerous bike riding trails, both on and off road. Low traffic volumes in the Motueka Valley area. The Orinoco stream meanders through the property, with picnic sites and safe playing areas for children. Feed the tame eels. We have a large hedge maze to challenge your navigation skills and also ‘Meadowbank' Art Studio and Gallery, exhibiting a visual feast of colourful paintings in all media, etchings, and a number of World of Wearable Art entries. ORINOCO COUNTRY RETREAT IS A TRULY MAGICAL PLACE TO STOP AWHILE.

    We had very hard frosts while we were staying and it was quite cold in the house despite good curtains, heaters and draught stops. It may only be used a few months of the year but a nice big glass fronted wood burner would really add to the ambiance of the house and make the interior cozy - there is a lot of firewood around.

    Enjoyed being able to take our dog with us and the secure area outside the house was thoughtful.
