The SpaceThe yurt is a spacious 38m2, with cosy retro mis-match furnishings; however please note, the bed includes a very comfortable queen-size mattress. Look out onto a meadow with fruit trees, and further on to paddocks where you can see cattle, chickens, sheep, pigs, goats and horses. Listen to the chiming song of tui and bellbirds, and the night-time calls of weka, who can also be seen during the day as they forage about the property.
The Kitchenette with 2 gas rings, fridge/freezer, cold running water and kettle, gives basic facilities for cooking, in a light-filled space.
4G Internet comes via an ethernet cable; being rural, we are on a limited plan and appreciate awareness around this
Shared shower, toilet and laundry facilities are a 50m stroll across the lawn, and are situated beside our house. Guest AccessParking is within the property, a 50m walk to the yurt, is not covered, and can accommodate up to a large campervan. Interaction with GuestsHazel Yurt is part of a small community, with 3 main houses and 3 yurts, sharing common land.
We look forward to sharing the Hazel Yurt with people who are interested in a sustainable lifestyle. You’re welcome to join us during a hand-milking session of our housecow, collect eggs from the hen house etc. But if you’re wanting to have a private holiday, that will be very much respected too. We will check in with you upon your arrival. The NeighborhoodHazel Yurt is in the Motueka Valley, a half hour drive to Mount Arthur and the Kahurangi National Park, and in the other direction, a half hour drive to Abel Tasman National Park. A picturesque 15 minute drive to Motueka and the beautiful beaches of Tasman Bay.
You can walk or take a short drive to delicious swimming places on the Motueka River, and the numerous fishing access points for those with a love of trout fishing.
This is a tranquil setting where you can relax to the sounds of rural life. You may hear the occasional sound of cattle mooing, a horse snorting, goat bleating, grey heron squawk, frogs chirping, children laughing, the dawn bird-chorus, and the evening calls of weka and ruru. Getting AroundYour own transport. Other Things to NoteThere is a boarding kennel in this neighbourhood. The dogs can be barking excitedly during their exercise hours. If you are sensitive to noise, this is not the place for you.
We do not take pets; but it is possible to board a dog at the kennels.
