Would definitely stay here again. Great location, nice roomy common area, and convenient access to Abel Tasman national park. Just up the hill from the Fat Tui, awesome sandwiches. Loved the sound of the running water just outside our room. Great sleeping! Also a stunning view of the Tasman Sea in the distance.

I stayed in a pokey single underneath the staircase. I will say this, it was spotlessly clean. But felt like a dark tomb. I stick of sugar, 2 tea bags, floppy shower head $115/night was outrageous. Should have been $50. Christa was pretty terse on the phone. Herman very friendly . Look around. There has to be better in town

We stayed in Salsa, which was big enough for 4-5 people. The positives: - view - space - tv! - two toilets Negatives - location means its a fairly long walk or drive to the front at marahau - not great bed linen-quite scratchy!

We stayed in Tango and loved it. The view from the living room window was of the Abel Tasman sea. The apartment cute. clean, comfy. Herman and Christa were just wonderful hosts. Because it is so close to the park we could easily get a water taxi to glorious beaches in the park. The hiking/walking is easy in most parts.... More

I agree with most of fellow reviewers comments in terms of ease of access to National Park etc. Salsa apartment is large, good living space and good-sized bedrooms. The kitchen is not well kitted out. There are no mixing bowls, the bread knife was blunt, (I did ask if there was another ,sharper knife available but the answer was no)... More

We stayed two nights in this well appointed apartment. We stayed in their smallest apartment which is a bit cramped, but it suited us. The apartment is clean, however there were a lot of dead mozzies on the floor when we arrived. The bed was really comfortable and we really enjoyed the porch. If you are looking for an affordable...

We spent four relaxing nights at the Buena Vista Apartments in the Tango unit. Apartment was clean and tidy and the cooking facilities were well appointed. Ideal location for day trips into the Abel Tasman National Park.

Nicely laid out apartment I2 bedroom Salsa) with beautiful views from the deck. Lovely grounds. The owner was somewhat determined and inflexible about us paying immediately in cash, which seemed really strange. My sister had planned to go out on an excursion and a bit cornered about this. Also very eager to push us out in the morning, standing waiting... More

Stayed in the "Tango" apartement for two nights - lovely location with great views, well-equipped kitchen and very clean. Only a few minutes walk to all the main attractions of Marahau, but very peaceful and quiet - ideal for a relaxing stay!

We stayed in the salsa 2 bedroom apartment. Overall thought it was quite nice but needs updating and a bit of refining in terms of decor. Had good kitchen facilities and was clean.
