Free WiFi. The house has beautiful mountain and pastoral views. The mature hedge maze is a challenge, feeding eels is fun, and the art gallery inspiring. 20 minutes drive to Motueka, and 45 minutes to Nelson. Within in easy driving distance to three of New Zealands National Parks. 35 minutes to Abel Tasman & Kahurangi National Parks, and just over an hours drive to Nelson Lakes National Park. Golden Bay is also just an hours drive away.Just so much to see and do!

The cottage was a lovely place to stay. Mike and Anne were great with communication and information about the house and the area. We loved exploring the hedge maze and the nearby swing bridge. A peaceful and relaxing place to visit.
