Long story short, but we thought our bus could get us there and they could not. Then every other piece of transportation was unavailable and we could not even rent a car! Of course, we were on limited internet connection and it was getting late. When we contacted the guesthouse, they were more than accommodating due to our situation. They... More

Yes, the guesthouse is a little quirky but in Marahau that is not unusual. The accommodation was incredibly spacious with more than enough room. We cooked and the kitchen had everything required. We left behind a phone charger and we were contacted by the guesthouse and they sent it to our home free of charge. One of the most memorable... More

Pleasantly surprised! This was the only place I had booked that I was a little concerned about before leaving home. However, we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. A huge apartment (2 storey-Albatross apartment) that had ample space for the 4 of us. Main bedroom upstairs (which also had 2 extra small beds tucked around the side if you were... More

This was our second stay at the Abel Tasman Guest House. We were first there in 2008. The owner has over has built several houses with apartments on his property over the years which he rents out on a daily basis. A few of them are entire small houses. Each has it's own charm and is individually different, each with... More

We spent 7 nights in the Tui apartment in the Abel Tasman Guesthouse in Marahau. We had a wonderful time in this spacious accommodation with a lovely view over the trees to the Tasman Sea. This place is out of the ordinary and reflects the personality of Heinrich who is well worth knowing and has been helpful in every way.... More

I can see this place would easily polarise people: some will enjoy, others will hate. When we arrived I wasn't sure what category I was in, but over the four nights we spent there I softened and found myself liking it - quirks and all. We stayed in the Bellbird Room. Was hard to know what to expect from the... More

We had a great night at this place but I can understand both the good and bad reviews. The place is rustic, out of the way, and very idiosyncratic. The owner struck us as eccentric and the place bore that out. Everything from the furnishings to the guest information is a little odd. But the room - I was unsure... More

We arrived late at night after a long drive from Nelson. The place was dark, in the woods and gave you a strange feeling in the dark. The room was very big, an appartment actualy, tin a wood-house, with balcony and super bathroom. On waking up it was a surprise. The balcony had a perfect view to Abel Tasman national... More

An instant after our arrival, my wife and I wanted to get the heck out of there. Not only was the blurred pictures on their website completely a farce (seemed like a scene out of Texas Chainsaw Massacre), I was mislead by the owner in our email correspondence before we arrived. I was promised a view of Abel Tasman Bay... More

As this accommodation is not much advertised on NZ websites we were not aware there is such a gem hidden in Marahau. While searching for the place we booked for the night we got lost and found this absolutely lovely accommodation for the same value but better facilities. Actually we loved it so much that we returned and stayed there... More
