Full description:

Retreat business or extended family residence,the choice is yours,on our 7acre lifestyle plot.With open plan house,6 cabins,alfresco guest kitchen,showers & toilets.Organic garden,orchard & greenhouse,all helping towards self sufficiency,the weather is so benign never too hot or too cold,grapes,citrus,olives,they all grow here.

Ao Marama Retreat is a former Buddhist centre with a lovely feel about the whole place.Described as Paradise by many of our retreat guests,please feel free to read their reviews(200ish) on Bookabach ID 24680 and Airbnb ref,Collingwood,Tasman AoMarama Retreat x 6 cabins.

So private and peaceful,set in Manuka woodland (great for honey),just the sound of the ocean and abundant birdsong,not forgetting the whistling frog chorus from our pond in season.Fantastic views right across the bay from every building (wow that sunrise),the property being atop an 85mt ridge,just 1 block back from the sea. There is a footpath down to the almost deserted 3 mile long Collingwood beach,wonderful for walking,riding or just chilling,where there are Pipis,cockles and Snapper in abundance. Be sure to keep a look out for penguin,dolphin.orca and the like.

The house (1320sqft approx) is private and separate from the cabins,with stunning sea views looking out over the Yoga deck,set in a very sheltered sunny spot. Lovely open plan living,a large L shaped lounge,dinner with kitchen off. One double bedroom with builtin wardrobe and ensuite bathroom.Yoga room/conservatory.Large walkin pantry/storeroom,separate other storerooms,leanto shelter and patio. 55,000Lt water tank. Jayline woodburner with back boiler.

Golden Bay is a most wonderful place,and really is far from the madding crowd,the whole place is very special,with a wonderful friendly and supportive community. We are surrounded by spectacular New Zealand nature,the west coast and Farewell Spit just a 20min drive away. We are also set between that fabulous Able Tasman and Kahurangi (2nd largest in the country) national parks,with their world renowned tracks Able Tasman and the Heaphy. Collingwood is just a short walk, where there is a school,cafes,shop,pub,galleries,etc.Our local town of Takaka is just a 20min drive where you can find all the above and more. There is a small airport in the bay, where you can take a short hop over to our capital Wellington,or the larger airport of Nelson is just a 2 hour drive and we're only a couple of hours drive from our nearest ski fields.

Being a retreat business there is Entrepreneur Visa migration possibility here. There is also huge untapped potential from a business prospective,as we have only been opened a couple of years and have not had the chance to implement all of our plans. AoMarama is only for sale because I had a major health scare last year and we have decided to take things easier. Basically the potential here is as big as your imagination, should you decide to go in that direction. Being a business the price will be + GST (your VAT),which is reclaimed once you register.
