About this property
197ha of Private Natural Beauty Perfectly positioned on the Shenandoah Highway just 2 hours scenic drive from Nelson city or 3 ½ from Christchurch International Airport, The Maruia River Lodge is unique in the area offering luxury accommodation to the discerning traveller. Fly fishing from the Maruia Lodge gives tourists and locals' access to some of the best rivers and streams in New Zealand. The Maruia River is one of the most famous Brown Trout Rivers in the world. This is a great river for the novice or intrepid angler and with the lodge having approximately 1.5 kms of river frontage you don't have far to go to experience the thrill of landing that trophy trout! If nature walking or hunting is more your interest the large native Beech forest on the eastern side of the property offers boundless opportunities for exploring native fauna and flora and numerous waterfalls. It is all about relaxation, the chance for tourists to immerse themselves in the beauty and tranquility of the lodge and surroundings. The facilities are all here ready and waiting for you to pick up the reigns and swing into action with developing and running your own business in this fabulous part of the countryside. With prospects for multiple business streams, the potential is remarkable. In addition to the luxury accommodation, restaurant and café you may wish to consider multiple business options such as, motorhome/camping ground, niche agricultural activities, uses for the natural water source or a wild life sanctuary to name a few. With the closure of State Highway 1 South via Kaikoura the tourist numbers now passing through the central part of the upper south have risen dramatically.
