We stayed here for four nights and we could have happily stayed longer. The staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. There are laundry facilities for which you pay a very small fee. The breakfast is continental style but eggs however you like them are included. They are self catering so make sure you get supplies before...

This was just an amazing place to spend Christmas - stunning views - secluded - exceptionally well equipped self catering accommodation - including a dish washer and a washing machine. We were in the Premium one bed chalet which was very spacious and secluded with two private balconies and sea views from the bed. The living space is fully equipped...

The worms are a good thing! They are part of the hosts' dedication to an environment-friendly approach to inn-keeping. Organic waste is saved to feed the worms, which turn the materials into a high quality compost. As for the views, you could sit in the living room of your chalet, or on the patio, and do nothing but drink in...

We stayed in a one bedroom chalet and, as promised, it afforded an uninterrrupted ocean view. It was peaceful, with only the sound of birdsong for company. The bed was comfortable and the rooms were clean and serviced daily (we stayed 4 nights). The chalet was well equipped for self catering, but we took advantage both of the breakfasts and...

This is s terrific location for accessing the Abel Tasman National Park. Which in itself provided a real highlight for our time in New Zealand. I loved this place! The views are spectacular from the deck and the chalets are so very comfortable and well equipped. We stayed for sadly only 2 nights but will be back!

We have just returned from staying at Ocean View Chalets in Marahau. It is an exceptional place to stay and the individual chalets on the hill looking out over the estuary/bay (depends on the time of the day!) are glorious. They are spotless (looked after by a great team of lovely cleaners) and run by the most welcoming lovely hosts....

We stayed here 12 years ago and booked early for this Christmas period. It's a lovely place with individual wooden chalets nestled into native bush. Birds feed outside the terrace and there are views of forest and Marahau seaside on the edge of Abel Tasman National Park. Our chalet was spacious, light and comfortable with everything you could need. The...
