Wonderful chalet in lovely setting, clean and spacious room will all the usual amenities. Wonderful welcoming host who was happy to store a bag overnight while we completed our overnight walk prior to checking in and helped us with booking transfers and suggesting activities

We had a great time at this well-run lodge. It was just what we needed with very clean cabin and lots of outdoor space for our son to run around. The facilities were great, the location perfect and the guys who recently took over running the lodge could not have been more helpful. I would definitely recommend Abel Tasman Marahau... More

My wife and I stayed at Abel Tasman Marahau Lodge in late December for two nights. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this lodge for any couple or family. Scott and his wife were very welcoming and happy to answer any questions we had about Abel Tasman National Park and the surrounding area. The room was large... More

Awesome lodge! My husband and I have just loved staying 3 nights in this comfy accomodation. It is moments away from all the beautiful area has to offer. The managers can take care of as much or as little as you like. We found Scott so helpful in making terrific recommendations and bookings for us. The room was very clean... More

We stayed here three nights in December and it is a great place to stay. The accommodation is very good and the hosts Scott and Jocelyn are really nice and very helpful. Best of all it is in a great location for everything you want to do at Abel Tasman - just along the road from the visitor centre and... More

Very nice room, very clean, beautiful garden, great location just at the start of Abel Tasman track. Scott and his wife were really very kind and helpful. Nearby is the park cafe where you can enjoy great food (Thursday pizza in a wood oven)

My husband and I decided upon marahau lodge for our first night away from the kids in two years. Scott was incredibly welcoming, offering to book us a table at the local restaurant. Upon entering our room we were greeted by a lovely fresh smell and surfaces so clean that I had to praise the cleaners the next day. I... More

We can only echo other recent reviews. It's a great place to stay to explore the Abel Tasman park, using the water taxi base that's almost next door to get out and about. We stayed a week and were very glad we did. With the help of Scott, the owner, we were directed towards plenty of things to keep us... More

A delightful lodge, in quiet surroundings, with amazing lush tropical garden and birds everywhere. The best part is we could walk to 2 cafes and to the start of the Abel Tasman trek. Wow! Better than expected.

We spent two nights in the lodge. Since neither our GPS or the directions given by our traveling company had the lodge, we had a struggle getting there. The owner, Scott, was there to greet us and helped us settle in. Room was spacious and comfortable and as we had bought food from Picton, not only could we cook it... More
