Claire and Peter and their team have created a truly 5-star lodge in one of the most beautiful valleys near Abel Tasman. We stayed in one of the bush chalets, a one-room cabin on their property. The room was perfect in every way. We also...More
Fabulous food! Our Chef, Clare, co-owner with her husband, Peter, prepared one of the best meals we had in New Zealand . You must not miss a chance to dine with your fellow guests at communal tables. And, of course, the local wines are a...More
The Resurgence was a big disappointment. The room we paid extra to "upgrade" was tired, hot and uncomfortable. Furnishings and art work were charmless. The ceiling fan in the living area was noisy, wobbly and did little to move the air. Bath tub was in...More

We were genuinely bemused when John & Lisa checked out, we asked if we had done anything wrong and they assured us we had not, John just wanted to go fishing and an opening had arisen at a local fishing lodge. We immediately contacted their...More
Stayed in one of the four bush chalets, which was well equipped, very well presented and afforded lovely views of the native bush. A BBQ is also available for use. Breakfast can be taken in the chalet (self catered) or the main house where you...More

I am glad that you enjoyed your honeymoon stay.
Please note that the other 2 lodges you are comparing us with cost $1900 rather than $695! It is not surprising then, that they have a serious chef and a more formal style. We...More

As with most Lodges, we are not close to restaurants or shops. You pass through Motueka where there are 2 supermarkets about 20 minutes before getting to the Lodge. If you have day-trips out of Kaiteriteri or Marahau then dining at Hooked or Fat Tui are recommended. Riverside in Lower Moutere, 25 minutes, and The Boatshed and Jellyfish in Mapua, 40 minutes away, are also favourites.
We have 2 products - Dinner Bed & Breakfast - for the full Lodge experience or Self-Contained for a peaceful escape in nature, our Bush Chalets and Bush Lodges have small well-equipped kitchen and BBQ with basic supplies such as milk, yoghurt, jams, eggs, cheese, cereals, fruit, herbs, oil, tea and coffee etc
