Three very nice chalets with a lovely view. If you want to visit Abel Tasman Park, well this is the place to sleep. 15 minutes drive to the kayaking! Self supporting, air-conditioned a small but sufficient kitchen with a hot plate, basis but good. It was great to be here especially in the evenings whilst sitting on the porch looking...

Reviewed 4 November 2016 via mobile

A fantastic place to stay, especially after spending some nights in motels and hostels. Finally some peace and quiet in a separate house that features a rather large room including a kitchen a bed and a couch as well as a very nice view from the balcony. Bathrooms are large and heating worked very well. Wi-Fi is working perfectly all...

Lovely small "cottages" with nice front porches. No toiletries--there is a soap dispenser in the shower but it didn't work. The owner is lovely and very helpful. The property is beautiful and you're tucked away so you can enjoy the views and the beautiful song birds. Three cottages on the property. Clean. Would stay there again. None of the windows...

Thank you for your review Margaret. I tell all our guests to contact me if there is anything that needs attention, and I will have it fixed or replaced. You did not mention a problem with the shower gel/shampoo dispenser, so gave me no chance to replace it for your use. We take our commitment to the environment very seriously...

Stayed here for 4 nights as a pace to start our honeymoon and to enable us to recover from the flight over. (Although our first night was the night of the earthquake which was a tad scary). Fantastic base for the area with the Abel Tasman national park a short drive away. Chalet was ideal for what we required. The...

Thank you for your review. The night of the earthquake was scary for all of NZ and we consider ourselves lucky that there was no damage in our region, though we feel so much sympathy for the people of Kaikoura who are still getting back to normal life now, with the road south open again. I hope the rest of...

We arrived today the 30th of November. The place really is a little gem. The owner is lovely, and it is a nice touch that they sell homemade goodies at reception. Lovely grounds, and beautifully kept. Great location for beaches, but far enough out to have some peace and quiet. Great views over the grounds. Very clean. The chalet is...

This hotel is set a bit outside of Motueka, and you can glimpse the ocean from the balconies. Our chalet was very clean and modern, with everything you need for a good stay - the kitchen had a hot plate and electric frypan, and the bed was very comfy. The surrounds are very picturesque and there is nice outdoor seating...
