MODERN, SPACIOUS, BEAUTIFULLY APPOINTED AND SUNNY WITH A COURTYARD OR BALCONY. We welcome you to our centrally located, modern and spacious motel where you will have ultimate luxury and comfort while being close to everything Motueka and the Abel Tasman have to offer. Whether you are wanting to explore or relax, Nautilus Lodge is the perfect base for your perfect holiday. Greet the day with your pre-ordered full or light continental breakfast brought to your door and sit in the courtyard or on the balcony and enjoy it while you plan your day. We are the pick-up point for kayaking or the water taxi, so no need to drive if you don't want to. We are 15 minutes from Kaiteriteri and the Abel Tasman National Park where you can experience seal swims, boat cruises, numerous walks or cycle trails or if you prefer just sit on the beach and have a relaxing picnic. We are so lucky to live in the most scenic place in New Zealand and there are plenty of photographic opportunities from birdlife, stunning bays and beaches, native forest or any activity that you want to enjoy. Because we are right in town, you can walk to our great shopping centre and pick up a souvenir, some unique homewares, clothing or a gift for a loved one. We have a great museum and interesting local art shops. Or if you just want to sit and watch the world go by, there are so many fantastic restaurants and cafés for you to choose from. After your day's activities, come back and enjoy a true Kiwi dinner with a BBQ in our BBQ area, then sit in your courtyard or on your balcony with a glass of your favourite drink and watch the sun go down on yet another fantastic day. Relax in your spa bath afterwards and enjoy our SKY 50+ channels or listen to your favourite music on your stereo in your room (selected rooms only). We are really looking forward to helping you have a memorable holiday. Your Hosts: Stephen and Lorraine.
