Interaction with Guests
I usually work part-time so tend to be around the house in the mornings, and back again after 6pm most days.
I'm happy to answer your questions and help with any planning you might need to make for your stay or share a glass of wine and talk about travel :-)
Public transport in NZ is not the greatest and there are no local buses in Motueka except for ones going to the park. I would highly recommend hiring a car for New Zealand or you'll miss some of the more interesting and beautiful off the beaten track places.
There are buses that run between the main centres, eg. Nelson to Motueka and then out to Golden Bay, Marahau and Kaiteriteri. There are not many services per day so you need to plan carefully if you don't have your own car.
Other Things to Note
This accommodation is suitable for 2 people only. We do not accept additional guests. It is also not suitable for children.
Smoking is allowed outdoors only.
Please note the bathroom does not have a door to it - this might sound odd but the way the room was designed it wouldn't be easy to install one. It is at the end of a short passageway and you cannot see into it but this might make some feel uncomfortable!
Room servicing: your room will be serviced daily (optional) between 9-11am if I am not working and you are not in the room. This includes making the bed, cleaning the bathroom, replacing towels as necessary, emptying rubbish bins etc. It does not include washing up your dirty dishes.
