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.

    Such a great blessing staying at Orchard View in Motuaka! It had been such a busy year for us and coming to such a lovely spot as this with our daughters to relax and take in the tremendous view and country air was just what was needed! It was great to have the country all around us and animals of many kinds to enjoy! Love to stay again when we can get back up that way, it's such a beautiful spot!

    We were after a tranquil rest away for the two of us and we got it. Attractive cottage, outlook and beutiful area of the world. Sky TV was an unexpected luxury for the character of the cottage. Full kitchen with supplies was great. If you were wanting to do day trips to Abel Tasman, shop in Motueka, cycle or walk around the area, Orchard View is uncomplicated and charming. Thank you.

  • The cottage is rural and perfect to retreat from life

    The cottage is rural and perfect to retreat from life. There's no cell reception so you don't need to feel bad when you don't want to answer a call or reply to a text because you just won't get them. The cottage is very comfortable and has everything one could need. Our dogs enjoyed the stay as well. The space around the cottage was fenced so they could explore safely.
