We spent there 2 nights and it was absolute heaven there. Small but nicely equiped chalet on the top of the farm. There were 3 chalets on this private property. Beautiful view over the orchard and vineyards. We could see even the sea. The lady recommended to us to local privat wine cellar owner where we tasted his 3 yummy... More

The chalets have amazing views looking out to toward the coast, very spacious, clean and comfortable. The Internet was really good, which was a bonus for me! About an hour away from Takaka, which is home to a big supermarket and petrol stations.

We were very glad to have chosen this chalet to stay for two nights. Excellent service, lovely surroundings, and a great chalet. We have greatly enjoyed our stay at this relaxing place. Our host was wonderful, she explained a lot about her farm and the region, and helped us with a lot of things to make our stay comfortable. Could... More

My wife and I were here on our honeymoon to NZ last year. It was very scenic as we peeked down the hills of where our chalets were. As seen from the pictures, the rooms are separated into different chalets so you won't hear your neighbors (and vice versa). The bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom suite looks to be renovated as...

We stayed one night and didn't want to leave. Set back on a hill with a view of the ocean, each chalet is well appointed and spacious and clean. Beautiful views from your private patio and quiet and secluded. Kim was incredibly friendly and helpful and would highly recommend a stay here.

we stayed for one night in a chalet. we had a huge bed, a kitchen, a small living room and a terrace with a nice view! It is located on a hill with no traffic, so you enjoy the sunset. We can really recommend it! Mirjam&Daniel

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

Thank you for your positive review of our chalets. The orchards and hills look beautiful at all times of the year, and the trees at the moment are full of the new season fruit. cheers, Kim 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!

Spent 2 nights here while trekking in the Abel Tasman National Park. These are nice little chalets with cooking facilities and access to a communal gas barbecue. 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
