We had a lovely stay here and extended our stay by adding a night at the beginning. Unfortunately the chalets were full so we stayed in the studio room by reception, which we wouldn't do again. It's only slightly cheaper than the chalet per night yet you can hear conversation in the reception area and the bathroom seems a bit... More

Dear Laura_DGF, I am glad you enjoyed your stay in our one bedroom chalet. The chalet you stayed in looks out over another room and through some native ferns to the national park, Fishermans Island and the ocean. To the east, it over looks the Tasman Bay (ocean), Richmond Ranges and all the way to the Marlborough Sounds. Pretty spectacular... More

A sitting room with gorgeous views, clean and nice bathrooms, a kitchen where you can cook a simple meal if required and located superbly as a gateway to Abel Tasman Park. Internet is limited and you can buy more. The chalets are made of wood and look like cottages - a real rustic look. Very comfortable. Surroundings are very clean.... More

Dear DNPRAHLAD, Thank you very much for your fantastic review. Our one and two bedroom chalets are all made of solid timber, giving it that unique look and ambience. We think they are very special and are pleased you enjoyed them as well. As all of our rooms are surrounded by native bush there can be some insects around, but... More

This is a memorable place to visit, the chalets have a rustic charm but are cosy and comfortable and well equipped for self catering. The views of the bay from the windows and balcony are magnificent added to the meadow and the animals. There is an air of peace and quiet to be enjoyed on the balcony or armchairs. The... More

We loved our stay at this charming, lovely, peaceful, and comfy Chalet!!! We were traveling around the south island in a camper van and decided to enjoy a few nights here. Ironically our camper van would not start after we checked out the site to stay. The staff were so gracious and helpful to get us back on the road.... More

“All rooms are good, but naturally the higher the cabin is on the hillside, the better the views. That said, we had one of the lower rooms and still found the view from the living room excellent.”
