Description

FREE WiFi. 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 located in the heated laundry, which also provides both washing machine and dryer. 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 DVDs, books & magazines. 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. No need for bottled drinking water here! Less than 5 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 relatively 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.

  • Lovely peaceful place with spectacular mountain view in clear weather

    Lovely peaceful place with spectacular mountain view in clear weather. Comfortable bach, which was toasty warm for us on even the coldest winter morning. Nearly got lost in the maze - take some form of navigation aid. Really convenient for Mapua, Motueka, Kaiteriteri / Abel Tasman and Kahurangi. Really enjoyed our stay.

  • Peaceful, quiet country retreat

    Peaceful, quiet country retreat. Wonderful location and great house. All amenities thought of, especially enjoyed the sunny outdoor dining area under the silk tree with kingfishers and fantails. Our elderly Springer Spaniel had a wonderful time sniffing out bunnies and paddling in the stream.
