The SpaceYour Holiday house is surrounded by regenerating and mature native bush, little rivers, a huge variety of bird life as well as wild animals, like goats, pigs, deer. From here you can overlook Tasman Sea with the Richmond Mountain Ranges in the horizon, the beginning of the Marlborough Sound straight ahead and the open Tasman Sea to the left.
Fresh water from our hillside spring quench thirst and nurture your taste buds! We generate our own power using our river and reliable sunshine!
We are opening your holiday house, our residence during the colder months, for you to experience this natural and down to earth lifestyle away from noise and pollution of our civilized busy life and promise a truly pure time out of the normal, nourishing all your senses.
This straw bale house has got various extended decks to be enjoyed at different times during the day, one with a wee outdoor gym!
We invite you to explore our land with its river, its lush bush and animal life. You can go for a work- out- run up the hill or a relaxed or challenging bush walk or just watch our animals play and relax on one of the spacious decks or balcony.
Take a breath of fresh air!!
We are a wee organic run farm and invite you to visit, touch or play with our animals, as they are used to being handled lovingly and respectfully. There are 2-4 milking goats, 3 kids, 10 sheep, chicken, 2 dogs and a cat, a horse and 3 male free ranged guinea pigs.
The closest swimming hole is about 8 min drive at the trout filled Motueka River, but you can refresh in our river (splash). Our beautiful beaches are just 17min drive from the house. Motueka (17min) has got all the facilities needed but a drive to Nelson (50min) is worthwhile.
This is a truly magical place which might awaken your creativity, love for the outdoors and nature!
As we are camping on our land (to care for animals and garden) out of space and sight from you, we are available at any time for your questions, to share information regarding our lifestyle or to advise you about valuable attractions of the area, etc.
