Sans Souci has very friendly staff, the beds are very comfortable, they serve a fabulous breakfast, the fire in the lounge is cozy and invites for an evening of games. The place is only 1 minute walk to the beach. Shared bathroom is clean but different!

One of our favourite places in the world to stay, and there is nowhere finer to relax and regenerate the soul! The dinners are really excellent: fresh, plentiful and high quality fare in a cosy setting, with unique style that you will not find anywhere else. The rooms are functional but the beds are very comfortable and the Mediterranean inn...

Everything at Sans Souci was perfect. Yes it is a little quirky and there are composting toilets, but this is more than made up for by the tranquil surroundings, the amazingly caring and helpful staff, the divine meals and desserts they create and the superb wine list.The 12 nights we had there were the most restful, 'grounding' and recharging holiday...

We loved staying here - spacious, relaxing, eco-conscious, and so close to the beach. We stayed in the large unit for three nights and really enjoyed eating here as well. It was a very relaxing place to stay while enjoying the beautiful golden bay and abel tasman park. one of our favorite experiences on our entire trip to new zealand

My wife and I first stayed at Sans Souci in 2001 and we've always wanted to return although it took us until 2017 to do so. Designed and built by the owners, Vera and Reto, it has a timeless charm. For us, the elegant simplicity is a perfect antidote to the pressure of modern life. Comfortable, visually pleasing, world-class location...

People who run this are so friendly and welcoming and our dinner there twice was top class. If you want luxury, this is not for you. It is quiet, no TV in family room, and all eco necessary items thought through. The sea/ beach which is gorgeous is about one minute walk away. If you want breakfast or dinner there...
