We really enjoyed our stay here. Our one bedroom cabin had large windows on all sides with a lovely view of farmland (with a bit of the ocean in the distance), and a patio that is great for reading a book and having a cup of tea. Even though the cabins are not that far from each other, the layout... More

The Chalet was amazing and even had a piano in the room! Proximity to park was amazing and the views and staff excellent. Love to stay here again! Wish I had alittle longer to enjoy the balcony view and the amazing Abel Tasman Park.

The view over the bay towards Fisherman Island is stunning, especially at sunrise. We were staying in a one bedroom chalet which was spacious and extremely well equipped. It was heaven to relax on the balcony after a day's walk on the Abel Tasman Coastal Track. Look out for Chief the collie who tries to round up geese - he... More

The chalets are pretty good. Basic adequate bed and furniture with the kitchen not very adequate.. we tried to self-cater one night and couldn't get the microwave/cooktop to work.

This is a great place for exploring the Abel Tasman National Park. We stayed in a studio room and it had a beautiful view, even though it was quite small. The furnishings were very comfortable. We had to go down to the bench outside the reception area to use the internet in the evening, but it worked okay. We were... More

We stayed a night in September, about a week before the restaurants in the area were scheduled to open for the season. Our host was very friendly and helped us arrange a water taxi back from our hike to the Anchorage the following morning. However, when we asked for dinner recommendations in the area, she suggested the local convenience store.... More

Dear Don N, I am sorry that Motueka wasn't suggested to you. Unfortunately as Marahau is a very quiet place in the winter months (part of the off season appeal :) ) eating options are limited.
