Description

Orchard View is situated on 20 acres of private land which includes pasture, native bush, garden and 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), and 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 and 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 and towels are provided. A fifth guest can be accommodated on the sofa bed and a cot is available on request.

The kitchen is equipped with electric stove, large fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster etc and 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 and 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 free range chickens.

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, ducks and other small farm 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 free range eggs, tea, coffee and sugar are provided on arrival as are basic cleaning materials. Other provisions can be found in Motueka a 15 minute drive away.

    House was in a lovely setting, away from the crowds on the coast but at the same time close to all the local attractions. Amazing bird song in the morning and evening and great raspberries!
