We stayed for 3 nights and wished we could have stayed longer! What a fabulous place in a fantastic part of the world! Our chalet was spacious, well equipped and cosy, and the views at any time of day were amazing. Chris, Robert and Konstanza were all lovely, extremely helpful and provided really useful local knowledge. We loved it here... More

I stayed here for two night in June, woke up to absolutely beautiful morning views, with pukekos and all the 4-legged friends around and about. Chris was really helpful with the local things to do and see, and also gave me a great little map and good tips on Golden Bay, my destination from there. Loved my stay here!

The room we stayed in was pretty nice and had everything we needed. The views from the hillside are great as well. The problem we had was with the receptionist. We arrived right before 5 pm and asked her if there was a place to eat nearby. She directed us to the grocery store a few hundred meters down but... More

Ocean View chalets are an excellent place to stay if visiting Abel Tasman. The chalets, although a little dated, are secluded from one another so you feel as though yours is the only one. The views across Sandy Bay and the surrounding bush give a wonderful feeling of peace and quiet. The chalets are well appointed and large enough for... More

The location of Ocean View Chalets is perfect. Our room was secluded, yet in an ideal location for fabulous ocean and bush views. It is an ideal 'stepping-off' point for tours of Abel Tasman National Park. The room was very comfortable and well appointed. It has 2 good sized bedrooms to sleep 4 in comfort. The manager (Chris) was friendly... More

Set amongst trees with views to the ocean. A short walking distance to everything there is to offer in the area. Cabin was very neat & equipped with most things one would need. Chris at reception is very friendly & helpful with suggestions. Very enjoyable stay.

Chris met us in welcome to these lovely chalets. Dated now, everything in wood but very clean and all you need for a short stay. Chalets are individually set amongst the trees, no midges when we were there in March! Very private and romantic. Gorgeous views over Sandy Bay.

The worms are a good thing! They are part of the hosts' dedication to an environment-friendly approach to inn-keeping. Organic waste is saved to feed the worms, which turn the materials into a high quality compost.
