"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 with cooking facilities and bath/shower, both with amazing views of the Motueka river valley and the Tasman Bay beyond.

The space
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.

Guest access
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. To reach the yurt there are steps going up the bank which can make it a bit difficult for big suitcases, high heels, and people who are unsteady on their feet. There's alternative access if needed.

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/system will preheat your hot water and our back up water heater will give you instant 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 $ 50 an hour.

Our yurt is surrounded by native bush and often you wake up with the song of the bellbird and fall asleep with the sound of the morepork. Our neighbours are all happily living in this beautiful spot
