The space
-Rural, country views.
-Conveniently situated just off State Highway 6 in Kohatu.
-We live on a rural 1.5 hectare block that is right next to the
Motueka river. We have been told part of our property is like a park as we
have a number of trees. We also have a number of fruit trees, which I like to
put some fruit in the Studio when they are ripe.
-Washing machine and Dryer are in host only area. If staying longer than 1
night I can wash and hang out or put in dryer for a small fee per load. First load is free then $5 per load. No ironing service or handwashing.
-Go to the river through our private track and swim in the Summer or go to
the Skifield in Winter.
-Enjoy the picnic table under the shade of the tree and listen to the
birdsong.
-We are a great base for a number of activities which are listed above.
-Our Studio makes for a great stop over if you are cycling The Great Taste
Cycle trail. We have the historic Spooners Train Tunnel that is part of the
trail not too far away. You can even drive to it and park and walk through it,
but make sure to have a good headtorch.
-Our Studio is clean, comfortable and cosy and has everything you need.
-The heatpump/aircon is great for Winter and Summer.
-It has a queen size bed available. Been told it is very comfortable.
-Fully self contained, but no oven. See pictures. Tea and Coffee is provided.
Milk is provided for the first night only.
-Lounge/tv area has freeview tv.
-Although Breakfast is not included the Kohatu Flat Rock Cafe is just a few
minutes drive down the road. Great food. They open at 10am. Not open
Tuesdays, but do confirm with them.
-Also a BBQ in the patio for your own use.
-Please read the rules in regards to some foods that are prohibited to be
cooked inside but you are welcome to cook them outside on the BBQ.
-We are not within walking distance to shops for food. Tapawera shop is
approx. 10mins drive and Wakefield shop is approx. 15mins drive.
-Must like dogs as we have 2. 1 large and 1 medium. They love the attention
and being patted and the smaller dog will do her best to get you to throw
her ball for her.
- There is Cell & Data coverage, but NO WIFI due to rural location. SPARK and
Vodafone is good. You wont want to be on your cell when at our Studio or if
you are out exploring all the area has to offer.
-It does pay to bring Insect repellant with you as the sandflies are around in
the warmer months.
-We do allow OUTSIDE SMOKING/VAPING ONLY in the designated areas.
-We have a security camera that is on and recording but does not face the
Studio so does not impose on your privacy.

Where you’ll be

Kohatu, Tasman, New Zealand

-We have the Great Taste Cycle Trail just at end of our road. If you go through the Historic Spooners Tunnel up the road you will need a headtorch or light on your bike for that section.
-Wakefield also has a Four Square Supermarket, Bakery,Pharmacy, 2 Cafes, Petrol Station, Pub, Takeaways Food shop and a Medical centre.
-A few minutes down the road from us is the Kohatu Flat Rock Cafe which is enjoyed by both locals and Tourists.
-10 minutes away is the village of Tapawera which has a Four Square Supermarket, Cafe, Pub and Petrol Station. Petrol Station is only open on weekdays.
-River right next to our place. (unfortuneately our track to river is out of bounds at moment, due to contractors coming in and pushing over all of the trees and leaving a terrible mess) :-(
-Golden Downs Golf Club is just up the road.
-Nearby is the National Lakes. Beautiful Lake area with gorgeous walks. Rainbow Skifield not far from there.
-Kahurangi National park-Wangapeka walking track, Abel Tasman National Park and much more to enjoy.

Tim and myself have lived in the Kohatu area since 2016. Tim was brought up in the surrounding area of Tadmor/Tapawera which is only about 10 minutes away. We have a daughter who is now living in Nelson City. We also have a Digger Hire business which we operate from home 7 days a week. Tim works fulltime during the week and I work from home looking after the Digger Hire business and now the AirBnB also. We love spending time with our 2 dogs and taking them to the river in summer for swims. We enjoy the peace and quiet and the rural views the area has to offer.
