Owner info

About the owner: Hosts Mary and Murray Garner. Murray manages the apple orchard, our apple variety Aztec and our small Highland cattle herd. Aztec is a highly coloured sub variety of Fuji which Murray discovered on the orchard. The variety has proved very popular in America and Europe with trees sold in several different countries. Murray has a boat and enjoys fishing and the occasional tandem sky dive. Mary works as a volunteer manager in Nelson and enjoys cooking, home preserving and gardening..

Why the Owner Chose Motueka:
This orchard property has been in Mary's family since 1910.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quiet and peaceful, stunning views across Tasman Bay, the orchard dam (similar to a small lake) is home to native ducks and other bird life. Kereru House is surrounded by a beautiful garden with native birds including the Kereru (NZ native wood pigeon). Cute Highland cattle love eating apples and oranges from the orchard.
