Our host was very friendly and helped us arrange a water taxi back from our hike to the Anchorage the following morning. However, when we asked for dinner recommendations in the area, she suggested the local convenience store.... More

Dear Don N, I am sorry that Motueka wasn't suggested to you. Unfortunately as Marahau is a very quiet place in the winter months (part of the off season appeal :) ) eating options are limited. I am sorry that this dampened your opinion of Marahau and the Ocean View Chalets. We have fantastic fully self-catered chalets available. I am,... More

We had three nights here and it was a great place to stay being so close to the Abel Tasman National Park. We had a single room chalet with bed, shower room, cooking area and balcony with a view of the sea. There was a laundry area at reception where you could pick up free wi-fi and have breakfast if...

Ocean View Chalets were a real find on our travels round South Island. The one bedroom chalet was superbly fitted out and was very comfortable with great views towards the sea. It very much felt like one was at home rather than staying in a motel. Sadly, this particular accommodation was booked for our third night so we had to... More

Great location with amazing views. We stayed 3 nights in the premium chalet. The chalet has a very nice bedroom, bathroom and a huge kitchen/living area. The kitchen is very well equipped and spacious. Everything was very clean. Chris was very helpful booking tours for us. Perfect stay, we will be back!
