Excellent experience. Nothing compares to it. Knowing Remko has built the entire place himself is a marvel & an inspiration. I loved coming back here, this time with more of my family members to experience the yurt life.

The yurt far exceeded our expectations. It was clean, quiet and had a beautiful view across Motueka and out to the ocean. We will definitely be staying by again!
