This is s terrific location for accessing the Abel Tasman National Park. Which in itself provided a real highlight for our time in New Zealand. I loved this place! The views are spectacular from the deck and the chalets are so very comfortable and well equipped. We stayed for sadly only 2 nights but will be back!

We have just returned from staying at Ocean View Chalets in Marahau. It is an exceptional place to stay and the individual chalets on the hill looking out over the estuary/bay (depends on the time of the day!) are glorious. They are spotless (looked after by a great team of lovely cleaners) and run by the most welcoming lovely hosts.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst briefly exploring AT national park. Lovely wooden chalets with a nice lounge, kitchenette area, separate bedroom and bathroom - all with a great view over fields and out to sea. Breakfast was good and Chris, the manager, was very friendly and very helpful. There is not a lot in Marahua (we found only two... More

We stayed here 12 years ago and booked early for this Christmas period. It's a lovely place with individual wooden chalets nestled into native bush. Birds feed outside the terrace and there are views of forest and Marahau seaside on the edge of Abel Tasman National Park. Our chalet was spacious, light and comfortable with everything you could need. The... More

Myself and my new wife spent a couple of days in the Ocean view chalet which had a beautiful view over Marahau and the start of the Abel Tasman national park. We were only a very short walk away from Aquataxi ferry point. The chalet itself was very clean and serviced daily. In short very pleasant stay and would stay... More

Wish we could've stayed longer than one night. Very nice chalet with water views. Chris was lovely helping us out when we needed it and she had plenty of great tips on the abel tasman walk and local eateries!

We just loved these quaint cottages set up on a hill among the fern trees with an amazing view of the gorgeous sea. Situated next to the Abel Tasman National Park it is the perfect location for a hike in the park, a boat ride or just hanging out. The kitchen had everything needed and the whole cottage was very...

We had a lovely stay here and extended our stay by adding a night at the beginning. Unfortunately the chalets were full so we stayed in the studio room by reception, which we wouldn't do again. It's only slightly cheaper than the chalet per night yet you can hear conversation in the reception area and the bathroom seems a bit... More

Dear Laura_DGF, I am glad you enjoyed your stay in our one bedroom chalet. The chalet you stayed in looks out over another room and through some native ferns to the national park, Fishermans Island and the ocean. To the east, it over looks the Tasman Bay (ocean), Richmond Ranges and all the way to the Marlborough Sounds. Pretty spectacular... More

A sitting room with gorgeous views, clean and nice bathrooms, a kitchen where you can cook a simple meal if required and located superbly as a gateway to Abel Tasman Park. Internet is limited and you can buy more. The chalets are made of wood and look like cottages - a real rustic look. Very comfortable. Surroundings are very clean.... More

Dear DNPRAHLAD, Thank you very much for your fantastic review. Our one and two bedroom chalets are all made of solid timber, giving it that unique look and ambience. We think they are very special and are pleased you enjoyed them as well. As all of our rooms are surrounded by native bush there can be some insects around, but... More
