About our home

Motueka is the gateway to the Abel Tasman National Park, with beautiful beaches, and any level of walking available. In winter the skifields are only 1.5 hours away, and any season, trendy Nelson has art and cafes.
Clean, double glazed, family home. Warm in winter, cool in summer. Outside seating with chairs, table, hammock, shade sails.
Sleeps 4-8.
At the end of a drive with 4 houses, so no road noise
Large garden to kick a ball, to jump the trampoline, or climb the big pine tree.
The veggie garden will provide food, and there are fruit trees and strawberries, eat them when ripe. If you want to care for the chickens, you will have fresh eggs too (if you don't, the neighbours will care for the chickens)
As a family of 4, with a 7 and a 10 year old, we have many things that you may want to use: badminton, (soft) cricket, boogie boards, (old, simple) kayaks with life jackets (simple), board games, books, a few DVDs.
Our bicycles, are available too (4 or 5, dep. on when you stay), with helmets, also a bicycle trailer for transporting little ones (discuss ages and requirements first, please).
Motueka is a very convenient town, and the house is 5 mins by car, 30 mins walk to town centre, with shopping, library, playgrounds. In January the high school swimming pool will be open
From the house it is only 2 mins walk to Mot beach, 2 min drive to salt water swimming pools
Around Motueka are many attractions: the Abel Tasman National Park for beaches, walking, and Kayaking, Golden Bay for day trips, Motueka river for tubing, Nelson/Richmond for fun-park style and town-based attractions.
Kaiteriteri is a 20 min drive away, and has an impressive new mountain bike track, great beach and playground for the children.
