We had a great stay at Orinoco Retreat. Very peaceful location and great hosts, 20 minute drive to Motueka and a great location for visiting other places in the Tasman/Nelson area. Really nice old-style kiwi home that was a pleasure to stay in during our holiday on the South Island.

A beautiful cottage, delightful birdsong, space to explore, silence, art. Just gorgeous. Thank you Anne and Mike.

Such a wonderful find. Stunning location, cute as a button well equipped cosy wee cottage...peaceful & quiet enough if you really just want to escape the rat race & decompress but close enough to amenities in Motueka & with Mapua, Ruby Bay & Takaka within easy reach. So grateful that Mike & Anne allowed us to bring Ted the dog as we hate to leave him behind. We had a lovely time & we hope to be back some day. Highly recommended.
