We stayed two nights with Reto and Vera and it was a fantastic end to our holiday. The use of the kitchen, dining and lounge in the evening was blissful, especially when we got the fire going. Felt so relaxed. The room we had was great. Heaps of room and tea, coffee, etc. was provided so easy for the morning...

Very comfortable and unique w/o being over the top or too upscale or pricey. Great dinner available for purchase at a reasonable rate. Good location -- quiet -- and close to absolutely wonderful beach and hikes on the west end of Abel Tasman and Wharariki Beach

We had a lovely 4 persons room, very comfortable beds and a great time at this inn. The kitchen and the dinning area is very clean and really well equipped. There is an earth oven you can use for baking your pizza if you are keen. We loved everything about this place and the owners are very nice people.

Sans Souci has very friendly staff, the beds are very comfortable, they serve a fabulous breakfast, the fire in the lounge is cozy and invites for an evening of games. The place is only 1 minute walk to the beach. Shared bathroom is clean but different!

One of our favourite places in the world to stay, and there is nowhere finer to relax and regenerate the soul! The dinners are really excellent: fresh, plentiful and high quality fare in a cosy setting, with unique style that you will not find anywhere else. The rooms are functional but the beds are very comfortable and the Mediterranean inn...

Everything at Sans Souci was perfect. Yes it is a little quirky and there are composting toilets, but this is more than made up for by the tranquil surroundings, the amazingly caring and helpful staff, the divine meals and desserts they create and the superb wine list.The 12 nights we had there were the most restful, 'grounding' and recharging holiday...
