Welcome to our Beach house situated on a peaceful reserve overlooking a tidal estuary and the beautiful Tasman Bay. Our home is two-storied weatherboard with loads of character, my husband Richard and son Jamie also live on the property. We love getting creative and are enjoying renovating and landscaping this property which we have owned for a couple of years. The studio is an extension attached to our home. You will access the studio through our back yard and a shared deck entry.

The space
The Studio is an extension of our home and is a small cozy space, it is bright and colorful with french doors opening onto a deck where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, or a drink at the end of the day and witness a forever changing view of Tasman Bay. There is a bench unit with a sink and hot and cold running water, a space to prepare food, and a toaster and kettle and small fridge. Please use the breadboard for cutting and placing hot items on as the white bench surface tends to mark. (There Are No Cooking Facilities In The Studio.) You are welcome to use the seat which we have recently built out front on the beach reserve.

Where you’ll be

Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand

Our neighborhood is popular for scenic walks which include a large estuary with a wide range of birdlife, a cafe at the Motueka Mariner with stunning views of the mountains and the well knownToad Hall Cafe, these are all in short walking distance. There is a public saltwater swimming pool 10 minutes walk from our house and a sandy beach just out front depending on where the tide is at. Another popular attraction is the shipwreck of The Janie Seddon which is a five-minute walk. Also, we can give you directions to our favorite river swimming spot which is divine.

I spent my childhood on Stewart Island which was the beginning of my passion for the outdoors and the beauty of nature and people. My husband Richard and i moved to Motueka in the eighties and started a family and also renovating older homes . I enjoy being active and also socializing with friends and our extended family and most of all having a laugh. This is my 5th year hosting and i feel very fortunate to meet people from all walks of life and to learn, share, and in a very small way do my bit to make the world a better place :)
