The Mot House is a relaxed low-key self-contained holiday home - a recent addition to mid-range vacation accommodation in Motueka in the popular Nelson Bays area. Great for friends, families, couples, children, groups.

What we offer 

The Mot House is a 3 bedroom 1940s character bungalow on a fully fenced corner garden block with a leafy outlook and rural and mountain views. Located  in a quiet part of town and just a leisurely stroll to main street.  A short drive to the bayside, boardwalk, and not far from Kaiteriteri Beach and Abel Tasman National Park.

The Mot House has been positioned at a price level that competes well with both budget and mid-range offerings such as backpackers and motels.view

“I aim to provide an  attractive, low-key holiday house for you. 
A place from which you can explore all that the region has to offer . . . .  a laid back environment with many of the comforts of home but fewer demanding distractions . . . . offering your own space and privacy.  
Your town-based "bach".
