The cottage is directly across the road from the Motueka River, famous for its abundance of trout. Your private access to the river is a 10 minute walk.

We are about an hour from Nelson Lakes National Park. Only 20 minutes to beautiful Mapua with it's gorgeous views and restaurants.

nice feeling country house, we enjoyed every bit, the river, the unexpected puzzle, the bbq and the quiet feeling to it. It is a well maintained and tidy place too.

The cottage suited our needs perfectly. Great location equidistant to Golden Bay and Nelson, and very handy to Motueka. Incredible library and all amenities we could want. Plus some thoughtful touches for Christmas, thanks Betsy :)

Betzys place is nice and roomy for a family of 6. Plenty of extras in kitchen if you forget something. About 10 minutes to Motueka and easy access to the river over the road. Homely and easy
