"The Chocolate Yurt" is a fully insulated 6m yurt with a skylight to gaze at the stars at night.
A private retreat in the native bush with outdoor kitchen and bath/shower, both with amazing views of the Motueka river valley and the Tasman Bay beyond
Our yurt resides in an eco village in the Motueka river valley, 15 minutes from Motueka.
The handcrafted wooden furniture gives it a warm, inviting atmosphere. A woodburner provides warmth for the winter months.
You will have your own access and private eco retreat. We're at the end a 1.5km steep (but easy to drive with a "rental"car) gravel driveway.
Interaction with guests
Quests will be given their privacy but we're always in for a chat.
Other things to note
We're "off the grid" and get our electricity from an alternative power system shared with the village.
We have a composting toilet.
Our 200 ltr. solar/wetback system will provide your hot water. Several overcast days may result, without lighting the fire, in no hot water.
You need to drive up a hill to enjoy the beautiful views. Store up on food if you don't want to drive to much.
Tessa offers massages for our guest. She's a qualified holistic massage therapist. You can relax and rejuvenate if you wish, just let us know in advance. Costs $ 40 an hour.
Eco friendly shampoo/soap.
Respect the tranquility of your surroundings.
