These chalets were a lucky discovery for a 2-night stay - in a quiet, attractive part of the Riwaka Valley, set back from the road on the side of a hill overlooking farms & orchards. The chalet is very well appointed and comfortable. Adequate cooking facilities but close to other eating options if you need them. Great place to chill... More

I stayed there for work and didn't want to leave! Absolutely spotless and so well equipped. The bed was so comfortable and the bedding was divine! I plan to stay there again - only trouble might be actually getting in as they are always so full :-) No wonder why! Totally recommended to all!

Our hostess, Kim is lively and informative and also helped us book our Water Taxi for getting to the hiking trails . She also makes homemade jams which should be tried...We bought a... More

Very nice and charming chalet on a hillside in a beautiful country setting. It's away from town so very quiet and peaceful but just a few minutes drive to get to town or the national park. Wonderful hosts. It was wonderful to sit on the porch of the chalet and watch the clouds go by. Enjoyed our stay. Free laundry... More

My husband and I initially booked one night and were so pleased with the beautiful and clean chalet that we decided to stay another night. The view is as amazing as the room itself! We have very high standards and the state of the room as well as the cleanliness of the bathroom itself exceeded our expectations! Kim was very... More

The Chalets are warm comfortable and have every thing you need. The Chalets are in a great location, and we now wish we had stayed there for 3 nights instead of 2. There is a lot to do here so stay at least 3 nights. We bought a takeaway roast from Hot roasts in Motueka it was the best do... More

She had lots of advice for where to go in the area and arranged a day at Abel Tasman National Park for us to do kayaking. The chalet was well equipped with everything we needed... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in January 2014 as it was close to the Able Tasman. We had our 12 y/o son with us. We didn't arrive till 8pm, however the lovely owner tended to us straight away. The little chalet was lovely, it was modern, clean, private and had all the facilities you need. This was the only... More
