Beautiful Bach, secluded house in own setting, all amenities provided. Washing machine and wifi and Netflix too etc A short drive to Motueka and nearby wineries and walking tracks. Loved our time here, truly relaxing and we will return. Those eels in the stream, certainly do seem fatter each time we visit.

Thank you Mike and Anne for an amazing stay at your wonderful tranquil Orinico accommodation. It was everything we needed in a holiday and more. The surroundings are absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed the bird's singing in replacement of our alarm clocks . Anne, we loved the fact that you took time out of your precious day to show us your magnificent art work and Mike we thoroughly enjoyed watching your beautiful calves and the fact that you kindly left fresh vegetables by our door. We was great to meet you both and we feel very lucky to have stayed here. I would thoroughly recommend this holiday home to anybody that wants a relaxing comfortable private holiday. The girls also loved the eels in the creek and we will fondly remember the times where we fed them.
We stayed here for three nights. It is a delightful well appointed cottage in a quiet and lovely area. The cottage is very comfortable with lots of lovely places to sit, with a sunroom, porch and outside area. Safe for children and dogs alike. We had fun in the maze! loved the walk up to White Rock, The Gallery was fantastic, thank you for showing us around it as are the Hosts. There is so much to do in this area I think one needs longer and we would love to return at some stage.
Response from Owner
