My gf and I stayed for a couple of nights in a double cabin. Such a nice spot. Ocean views, 2 mins from the entrance to Abel Tasman park. Good facilities and great location. Ask for an ocean view, play some badminton or twister and enjoy one of the most beautiful places in the world. We didn't have a car... More

great location, close to the national park for walks and kayaking. We booked for a double cabin, which was confirmed more than a month in advance, and upon arrival they said they didn't have any doubles available and we were put in a twin cabin, which had no power as apposed to the doubles which did. This was not a... More

Superb spot right by the National Park with great views!. Superb facilities and welcoming owners! Just obey the "private property signs" and stick to the more than ample space of the site. We'll be back!

We stayed as part of our Stray Bus trip, hopping off to do the Abel Tasman Costal Walk. Really great location, literally a minutes walk from the entrance to the national park. The first night we stayed in a 6 bed dorm room, really great everyone had a single bed and a plug socket. Shower facilities and kitchen were good.... More

We stayed at The Barn in Marahau for 3 nights in February. This is basically a camping site with a collection of huts. We had a powered double (2 person) hut. The bed was very comfortable and the bedding was very clean and warm. They provide towels, wash clothes, and hand towels that were also very clean and of reasonably... More

The showers and toilets were sub par but the location was great. Beds were okay, nothing to complain or be excited about. Although I am on the stray bus I pity the people who are not because they are loud and obnoxious (not myself and the 4 girls that were traveling with me.) The stray bus we were with a... More

Great facilities, clean, nice sea view, friendly and helpful staff. Right around the corner from Kahu Kayaks which we found a big advantage. Location of the campsite is perfect for exploring the park. Quails and Pukekos roam the site, which we enjoyed.

We were looking for a place to stay close to Abel Tasman and this was the perfect location. We were camping in our van and had a great view of both the mountains and the sea - just spectacular. The kitchen and the grill area was nice and it had probably some of the nicest showers/bathrooms from any camp we... More

We stayed here with Stray (bus company) for 4 nights. Stray only guaranteed 2 nights so we emailed the reception before hand (10 days before arrival) to ask if it was possible to stay 4 nights. Because it was christmas they told us it was only possible for 3 nights and they said that they would contact us if something... More

This was our first ever camping experience and we couldn't have asked for more. The barn offers amazing facilities and is extremely neat and clean. We stayed there for 3 nights in the first few days of January which is the peak season. There were a lot of other people camping there too but not even a single day did... More
