Stayed in Chalet no. 3. As far as I can see all the chalets have beautiful views. They are quite close together but very private due to the way they are aligned. A real plus was being able to use the washing machine and we had a clothes rack on the balcony as well to air out swimsuits and so...

Marahau is a tiny area tucked against the entrance to Abel Tasman Park, but well worth the drive. This is the launching spot for all sorts of activities in the park. Ocean View was a perfect location for us. It was quiet yet close to all the hiking and kayaking. Robert was really welcoming and helpful. He booked all of...

We stayed here this past week on our tour of NZ. We had an excellent room with a view over the bay, and watched the moon rise in the evening, and the sun rise in the morning from our balcony. The staff were very friendly and helpful. If you're going to self cater up this way, stock up on the...

Dear Dave B, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Yes, stocking up in Motueka is a great idea! We have a small general store in the village but the supermarkets in Motueka have a much larger range of items. I am sorry you found the lunch...

We had the pleasure of staying at Ocean View Chalets in 2013 and that was a large factor is returning to Abel Tasman this year. We were fortunate to book a 1 bedroom chalet this year - timing is everything! Book your stay early to have a choice of room types. Robert is a gracious and welcoming host, walking us...

We shared chalet #1 with our cousins and it was absolutely wonderful: 2 bedroom, 2 baths with cozy living/dining area, well equipped kitchen, and a deck with table and chairs looking out to the sea. The chalet was thoughtfully and simply decorated. We felt right at home. Robert was great at assisting us on our many arrangements. The sitting area...

Thank you, Robert, Constanzia & Chris for our memorable 3 day stay in your wonderful log cabins.

My husband and I love our Canadian National & Provincial Parks and were eager to see, trek, and kayak along the golden tracks & beaches of Abel Tasman National Park. We were driving through NZ on our "Dream-Honeymoon-Cross-Country-Road-Trip-Extraordinaire" and came across Ocean View Chalets online while researching our accommodations. We stayed for 3 nights from Jan.05.2014 - Jan.08.2014 in the...

We booked a one bedroom premium chalet for 3 nights and were so happy with the place that we really did not want to leave. The place is located perhaps a 5 minute walk from the entrance to the Abel Tasman national park and close to the aquataxi service and a kayak rental. The location meant that we parked our...

What a great find and walking distance to the Abel Tasman entrance. The long drive from the main road takes you through gorgeous fields darted with grazing sheep and horses. The chalets are high on the hill and overlook the beautiful bay and Abel Tasman mountains. Each chalet is an individual cabin secluded within the lush rain forest and natural...
