We stayed one night in a private cabin, as part of a four day walk organised by Abel Tasman Guides. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed, the food excellent and plentiful. Nice to mix with other people we hadn't met before.

The boat is such a cool place to stay, it’s great being able to swim off it. A really unique experience. There highlight is the food though. The dinner was amazing, then the breakfast the next day topped it off. Would highly recommend.

Great hosts, good vibes and excellent food! The barbecue and pancakes for breakfast were top notch. Jane and Mark really made us feel welcome and the 'pet' ducks were very cute. Facilities were also great. Hoping to be back!
