Abel Tasman is a coastal paradise and lovely if you get the weather. We enjoyed our stay at the Ocean View chalets, albeit we arrived quite late on the first night. The setting was lovely, overall we were quite happy with our stay. Breakfast is available at an extra cost.... They offered us a cash discount but we could not...

We booked a one bedroom premium chalet for 3 nights and were so happy with the place that we really did not want to leave. The place is located perhaps a 5 minute walk from the entrance to the Abel Tasman national park and close to the aquataxi service and a kayak rental. The location meant that we parked our...

What a great find and walking distance to the Abel Tasman entrance. The long drive from the main road takes you through gorgeous fields darted with grazing sheep and horses. The chalets are high on the hill and overlook the beautiful bay and Abel Tasman mountains. Each chalet is an individual cabin secluded within the lush rain forest and natural...

A retreat into tranquility and nature with the added bonus of Abel Tasman National Park. Escape the commerce of holiday time, relax and enjoy the whole environment in this fabulous setting and welcoming chalets. I particularly enjoyed the cooking - what a brilliant arrangement of microwave, hot plate and alternative cooking was provided. Cooking for one always seems unnecessary but...

Reviewed 10 November 2013

We spent three nights in Abel Tasman and really enjoyed the Ocean View Chalets as our home base. The rooms are all free standing cabins. Our one bedroom cabin was small but very well built, made of (I believe) pine. It was well built and attractive, seemed almost new, and was immaculate. There were beautiful views of horse pastures and...

This was the highlight of our sixteen day stay in New Zealand. The sea views were simply stunning from our Premium Chalet. It was a very spacious apartment with very comfortable seating, both in the lounge and both outdoor decks. It is a Family owned business and Robert, Constanza and Chris were just so helpful.

We stayed here two nights in order to walk the Abel Tasman Coast Track. Our room was a studio so not as large as some of their other chalets. It was adequate and very comfortable, particularly the electric blankets. This place is a short walk from the park entrance which is where the one restaurant that was open was located....

We had a very peaceful, relaxing break here. Our chalet was comfortable and the view wonderful. The all-in-one microwave/cooktop/oven made cooking a bit challenging. Definitely worth shopping for groceries and wine in Motueka on the way through.
