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!

A return visit for us. We spent 3 nights at Ocean View Chalets, this time with our grown up family. Robert welcomed us and showed us to our chalets and apartments. Once again, the accommodation was very clean and everything you could hope to find was there! Robert booked a boat trip package for us for the Saturday and it... More

This review is a bit late! We stayed in the Ocean View Chalets for a couple of nights in October 13, and really should have stayed longer. We were made very welcome by Robert, a knowledgable and attentive host. The setting is wonderful as are the views. The chalet was impeccably clean and well equipped. Locally, the Park Cafe is...

This is a fine-tuned operation. Our lovely apartment had an amazing view of the Tasman Sea; we'd sit outside on a balcony each night sipping wine and star-gazing before stumbling into the plush and comfy bed. Robert was a very considerate and gracious host - I felt as if he were a friend. When he discovered my interest in food... More

Stayed in the premium chalet (no 10) which had absolutely everything you could wish for from laundry to full size kitchen (incl dishwasher) to piano to top class sound system to large plasma TV and free wifi AND stunning views with 2 balconies!! This was just heaven and not unsurprisingly was never bettered during our time in NZ although 2... More

We really enjoyed our stay. Perfect location for exploring the Abel Tasman National Park (it's the closest place you can stay at without staying in the park). Lovely outlook to the water from the balcony where we enjoyed a wine (or two) before dinner. What amazed us the most was how impeccably clean the place was - so well maintained... More

Dear RhiannonJS, Thank you for staying with us and for leaving such a brilliant review. The Fat Tui burgers really are out-of-this-world, aren't they!! Definitely a "must try" whilst in Marahau. And the seafood at the Park Cafe is always incredible. We are very lucky to have such amazing eating options so close to us. Kind regards and all the... More

Stayed in Chalet no. 3. As far as I can see all the chalets have beautiful views. They are quite close together but very private due to the way they are aligned. A real plus was being able to use the washing machine and we had a clothes rack on the balcony as well to air out swimsuits and so... More

Marahau is a tiny area tucked against the entrance to Abel Tasman Park, but well worth the drive. This is the launching spot for all sorts of activities in the park. Ocean View was a perfect location for us. It was quiet yet close to all the hiking and kayaking. Robert was really welcoming and helpful. He booked all of... More

We stayed here this past week on our tour of NZ. We had an excellent room with a view over the bay, and watched the moon rise in the evening, and the sun rise in the morning from our balcony. The staff were very friendly and helpful. If you're going to self cater up this way, stock up on the... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Ocean View Chalets in 2013 and that was a large factor is returning to Abel Tasman this year.
