This was a great place to base myself before and after my Abel Tasman trip. It was a really friendly place, just a short walk from the centre of town, but in a nice quiet street.

Thank you Ida for this surprise review:-)
Much appreciated. With regards to the kitchen facilities I want to mention that guests shouldn't expect anything but for all the basic kitchen tools. Especially in the villa studio where you stayed, space is relatively limited. You can...More
