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, which is extremely family friendly, 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. Both a High Chair and Portacot are available. 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, including a children interest selection, books, magazines and board games. For outdoor living, the paved patio with tranquil views around the valley has outdoor furniture and a twin plate gas BBQ. The water supply is the purest of spring water, sourced direct from an underground spring. Absolutely no need for bottled drinking water here! In fact we think ours is better. 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. Feeding the tame eels is a popular attraction. We have a large hedge maze to challenge your navigational skills, and lose the kids for a short while if you so choose! ‘Meadowbank' Art Studio and Gallery exhibits a visual feast of colourful paintings in all media, etchings, and a number of World of Wearable Art entries. You are welcome to visit. ORINOCO COUNTRY RETREAT IS A TRULY MAGICAL PLACE FOR ALL TO STOP AWHILE.
