Atamai Village

Living well, sustainably, together

Remember when you used to ride your bike down the road, pick fruit off trees, borrow sugar from your neighbour? Atamai Village, with that good, old fashioned neighbourhood feel, offers the perfect setting for raising children, retirement or anything in between.

Nestled in a scenic river valley, Motueka is the gateway to New Zealand's largest national park, snow capped mountains, and beautiful beaches.

Working in the software industry lets me live anywhere with a fast internet connection. Since moving into our place at Atamai, I have a lot more time to spend outdoors with my family.

We moved to Atamai about four years ago and love the community here. We enjoy the challenge of developing and maintaining our garden and really appreciate the rich knowledge-base provided by living in a like-minded community.

The village kids are safe and happy roaming its large area, playing with other kids and visiting favourite adults. They learn a lot watching adults making and doing things; people are always ready to show them how. The village is a great place to raise kids.
