We're just back from spending 3 nights at the Treehouse Yurt Retreat and have had such a wonderful time there!
It is so close to Nelson (were we live) and as I am pregnant, the drive to this lovely accommodation was just perfect.
The Yurt and Tree House are both really clean and comfortable. So comfortable in fact that we ended up not moving at all for the 3 days we were there.
The place was spotless, decorated with taste and equipped with everything you need. The beds were very comfortable. There is also a log burner inside the Yurt for colder nights if you need.
The kitchen was very functional and loved that there is a stainless steel gas hob. We didn't need to use the oven but I could imagine that next time we are there, we may bake a few cookies and/or cakes :) The stainless steel sink is also very practical and easy to clean.
The bathroom was so relaxing with its large windows opening up on the trees. Good water pressure and temperature. The owners are supplying some eco products for their guests to use. And there is even a washing machine if you need (we didn't need to use it but handy to have if you're staying for longer).
The deck area is wonderful! Furnished with taste and so comfortable: from a very large wooden table and benches to comfy loungers and hammock. We loved spending time outside watching the stars, soaking up the view on Motueka and the ocean, listening to the birds (Tui, Kare Kare, Morpork, Fantails, Robins, Weka, so many different bird songs!)
The short walk to the Yurt is lovely, between the flax and native bush. The Yurt is not far from the owners home which can be handy if you have questions or need help with anything. Yet, it still felt very private as the accommodation is surrounded with vegetation and we didn't see a soul until the day we left, when we went back to our car.
The community up there is so fortunate to live in such a stunning area and we are very grateful that they've decided to open and share a bit of their lifestyle with us through this holiday accommodation.
You can definitely see that the owners have been working hard recently to improve this holiday home. We'll definitely be back when we have family visiting from overseas and will recommend it to our close friends too!
