Orinoco Cottage: Holiday Home

Holiday Home in Motueka River Valley, Nelson

Set on our 26ha property in the beautiful Orinoco Valley and located well away from traffic noise this very tranquil and well appointed house looks out onto the Mt Arthur Range in the Kahurangi National Park. The house is carpeted throughout and is tastefully furnished. The water supply is the purest of spring water sourced from an underground spring. 15 minutes to Motueka, 35 minutes to Kaiteriteri, Abel Tasman National Park and Kahurangi National Park walking tracks, 50 minutes to Nelson and just over an hour to Golden Bay and Nelson Lakes National Park. Excellent trout fishing, picnic spots, swimming, art and craft outlets, vineyards and restaurants are virtually on the doorstep. Numerous bike riding trails, both on and off road. Low traffic volumes in the Motueka Valley area. The Orinoco stream meanders through the property with picnic sites and safe playing areas for children. Feed the tame eels. We have a large hedge maze to challenge your navigation skills and also ‘Meadowbank’ Art Studio and Gallery, exhibiting a visual feast of colourful paintings in all media, etchings, and a number of World of Wearable Art entries. ORINOCO COTTAGE IS A TRULY MAGICAL PLACE TO STOP AWHILE.
