Situated on 25 acres of private land Orchard View Cottage is centrally located for a number of holiday activities. The sandy beaches of Kaiteriteri and Marahau and the Abel Tasman National Park are only 15 minutes away as is the township of Motueka with its shops, bars and restaurants.

The large sunny deck is perfect for outdoor living. Furnished with tables, chairs and gas BBQ it provides views over the orchard and across the valley. A great place to relax and enjoy the view across the valley.

There is always an abundance of native birdsong around the cottage plus our own free range hens, turkeys and peacocks. For the fly fisherman the Riwaka River is a two minute stroll away or the larger Motueka River is only a 10 minute car ride from the property.

Local Activities.
These include fishing, golf, horse riding, swimming, surfing, boating and sea kayaking. The local wine and craft trails provide a great day out.. A car is essential as Orchard View is a rural property off the main highway but only a few minutes away from the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park and the sandy beaches of Kaiteriteri and Marahau. Take a day trip over the Takaka Hill to Golden Bay and Farewell Spit.
