About this Holiday House

Available as a monthly rental from April forward to September- see details below. 15 minutes from Motueka township, totally private and just across from a beautiful, clean river suitable for fishing and swimming. Our 2 bedroom cottage has been updated with new kitchen and heat pump and sleeps 6 comfortably. Kaiteriteri, Marahau, Mapua and the Abel Tasman and Kaharangi National Parks are all a 25 minute drive away. For bikers, we are less than 2k from the Motueka West Bank Rd part of the Woodstock-Riwaka section of the Tasman Great Taste Trail. We are 1 hour to Golden Bay or Nelson Lakes National Park and only 50 minutes to Nelson. We have a fully equipped eat-in kitchen with dishwasher, stove, microwave and fridge. Pantry basics provided such as oils & vinegars, tea & coffee, herbs and whatever fresh fruit or vegetables are in season from our garden. Free to View TV with a DVD player and plenty of quality movies and games. We have recently upgraded the shower. BBQ area with outdoor seating for 6. Very small children will need supervision as the property is not fenced and fairly close to the main road. The wifi is on a rural wireless plan and is shared with our home. It is only suitable for email and basic web browsing. It is not fast enough for streaming or video. There is a queen air mattress which can be left set up in an alcove in the living room for convenience. See photos for more information.

This was such a wonderful cottage to stay in. We were looking for a place to stay as we fly fished across the north island and we all really welcomed how comfy and accessible the cottage was to different attractions, activities and amenities. It’s a beautifully self contained house surrounded by orchards, hops and farms so it’s quiet enough to be able to relax but close enough to town to get supplies. If you’re a book lover or even if you’re not, this cottage has an amazing library of books to flip through and the neighbours were super friendly and welcoming and they all gave as permission to access the might Motueka river through their properties. I Highly recommend this lovely cottage.

Very good place to catch fish! You have the river all to yourself! The cottage is just across the road from the owner's house so you just have to walk or drive 2 minutes to get to the river. It's a great set up. We're coming back in April. The house is lovely too. We felt right at home. It has everything you could want and the beds are very good (we don't always get that when we travel). The owner's obviously look after the place very well. Seems like it would be a great place to winter in with that nice log burner. Also, my wife wants to add that the house stayed very cool on a few hot days, which she was worried about. All in all, this is one of the best places we've stayed. Very economical too compared to some.

Spotless with lots of extras. Let us have our dogs who slept in our truck which was really appreciated. Very good area to explore. Close to the National parks. Great house with lots of books and movies. Good value, highly recommended.
