There is an indoor hot tub/spa which was great after coming back from bad weather days out sea kayaking. Our room had a nice balcony overlooking the sea which had great sunrise views. Heating in the room was perfect for the cold nights.

I picked this place base on it being close to the boat dock for Abel Tasman and the good reviews. I wasn't disappointed It's located in what must be a vacation/summer home colony just around the corner from the boat departure beach. The cottages are set up on a hill, higher you go, better the view. Christine was concerned that... More

One of the best place we staid in during our 3 weeks NZ trip. Super nice and well equipped studio, with an awesome ocean view. Sauna and barbecue area. Five walking minutes from the beach. Efficient and very nice hosts.

We wanted/needed a small break away and this was perfect for us. The room was very clean and warm, the kitchen was a great size but the real bonus for us was use of the enclosed spa which we could book up to an hour free. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommend this motel to friends and... More

We hadn't booked accommodation, and we were lucky to get the last available unit at this well located motel. We ate fish and chips down at the waterfront, but if you wanted to, you could have self-catered in this well resourced unit. Comfortable, clean and a short walk to the beach.

This was the first port of call on the South Island having crossed the Cook Strait earlier in the day. I was travelling in an organised (motorcyle) tour goup and the welcome we received here was fantastic and set the tone for the remainder of our trip. The owners made their double garage available so that as many bikes as... More

This motel is set back a few feet from a beautiful sandy beach. This is a fabulous base while visiting the Abel Tasman National Park. The welcome from the owner was very good. and made you feel at home straight away. Our first and lasting opinion was that this is a first class place. The motel is in exceptional good... More
