From making the booking, and several change prior to my arrival Jocelyn & Scott were nothing but helpful in accommodating our needs, at a very busy time of year. The location can't be beaten, the resort is immaculate and the service on the ground from arrival to departure could not have been better, including booking restaurants for us (no mobile...

We started our honeymoon here, and I'm not sure we had a better spot the rest of our trip. The hosts were kind and thoughtful, the room was a cool design and had everything we needed, and the location was perfect for us. We got the Kowhai suite and I'd suggest it was worth every penny and more! Highly recommend...

Thanks Lewis212, What a fantastic review and greatly appreciated. The KOWHAI SUITE has a great outlook as you say and a lovely wood ceiling. All of our chalets have a nice mix of modern design as well as the environmental friendly wood ceilings. We'll see you back here next time! Thanks again Joce and Scott

The facilities on site are fantastic which allowed us to catch up on some washing during our stay. There is also a communal kitchen and BBQ should you want to prepare your own dinner. The location is...

Jocelyn and Scott were so very friendly and helpful right from the start, even offering to book restaurants on our behalf. We were really impressed with the modern, clean, and spacious rooms and their outlook. The location could not have been better as a base for exploring the area but especially for walking and kayaking the the Abel Tasman National...

We stayed for 4 nights and managed to walk most of the Abel Tasman track with the help of water taxis (arranged in advance by Jocelyn & Scott). The studio chalets were spacious and comfortable. We were able to cook dinner every night in the well equipped, spotlessly clean communal kitchen and eat on the deck overlooking the garden. Scott...
