Orchard View is an ideal base for visitors wishing to combine sunny days on the sandy beaches of Kaiteriteri and Marahau, explore the Abel Tasman, take a day trip 'over the hill' to Golden Bay then return to the peace and tranquility of their own slice of New Zealand. Fish for for brown trout in the Riwaka River directly from our property.

Abel Tasman is New Zealand's smallest National Park, but one of the most popular. The area is great for walking, fishing, swimming, sailing and sea-kayaking. The park can be accessed on foot from Marahau, a short 15 minute drive away, or by water taxi from Kaiteriteri or Marahau.

Also a 15 minute drive away 'Motueka' is the main town in the Abel Tasman Region, at the top of New Zealand's South Island, and 45 minutes from Nelson. Here you will find supermarkets, bakers, chemists, banks, bars & cafe's. Plus the popular Sunday market. 

Orchard View is on the bank of the Riwaka River with muscovy ducks & free range hens
