Great motel in the perfect location. The size of our two bedroom was great, we went on a family trip with my parents and our son and even with the fold away bed in the living areas there was still plenty of space for my son to play. The owner was friendly & very welcoming. Overall it was a relaxing... More

These units are modern, tidy, spacious and wonderfully located in Little Kaiteriteri. A few hundred metres walk to the beach. We were in a two bedroom unit and enjoyed the private outdoor balcony. The heat pump worked really well. A fantastic shower pressure and lots of hot water. Laundry and ktichen facilities sufficient. We cooked all our own meals so... More

The motel is a series of smaller buildings that go up the hill. We were in the middle level, which had a view of the ocean above the other buildings (unit 3). The room itself was quite spacious, with a decently equipped kitchen and a spacious washroom. The host was quite friendly and helpful with information. I could see parking... More

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.
