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

Chalets was a wonderful bit of paradise for of at the closing of our New Zealand trip on the South Island. It's situated outside of Motueka and consists of 3 chalets. The rest of the property is filled with trees, flowers and places where the hosts grow fruits and veggies for home made treats and to sell to the people.... More

Booked here in advance since read good reviews. All turned out true - rural location with great view from the room - all amenities are there, room is fully equipped and modern, just like in the best hotels. Kim was a perfect host and just made us feel at home. Even though this was the beginning of our tour of... More

Booked here last minute after scrubbing our camping plans due to rain. Simply phenomenal! We loved everything about this place. For the price it was incredible. Kim is super nice and the chalet was well decorated and quite cozy.

Fantastic quiet rural location within easy reach of Abel Tasman national park and Motueka. The chalet was very well equipped and thoughtfully laid out with every convenience, including free unlimited wifi. A very comfortable base. Kim and John were the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. This place is great value. Quite honestly we couldn't believe... More

We found Chalets @ Terraced Gardens to be very clean, extremely comfortable and very well equipped for the self catered traveler. The surrounding area is beautiful and an excellent location for exploring Abel Tasman. Kim the owner was incredibly helpful and friendly and our only regret was that we only booked 2 nights here.

Spent 3 nights there and is was well worth the money. Very friendly and helpful owners. We bought some of their home made tomato chutney and it was delicious. As it is a bit outside Riwaka you would need a car to get there, but those who are looking for a quiet place to stay it's perfect.

Our chalet was clean, comfortable and spacious with a nice closet and drawers. The setting was marvelous, deck wonderful and kitchen had all needed necessities. Kim, the owner, was gracious, resourceful and saved our day from a rained out disaster by finding wonderful activities for us nearby. She even did our laundry. I can not disagree with the previous reviewer... More

Spent 3 nights here, wanted to leave after 15 mins. Dirty floor (pubic hairs) when I wiped the floor with a damp paper towel it was filthy, fridge handle was disgusting, half empty milk left in it. Horrible cheap rough sheets, we had to go buy pillows because I wasn't sleeping on those. No luggage rack, no space to keep... More

When I take each guest, personally, to the chalets to show them the facilities I make sure to tell them to come to see me if there is anything else they need or any problems, so I am at a loss to understand why you did not approach me once in three days even though we live on site and... More
