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...

The Chalet was huge with all the amenities that we needed, that is, a big kitchen, lounge room with TV,laundry, a comfortable bed and great outdoor balconies with beautiful views.... More

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!

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

Dear Ian B, Thank you so very much for such a lovely review. I agree with you 100% . I would quite happily live in the premium chalet if the owner allowed it :) It was a pleasure having you stay and we hope to see you back again some day soon. Kind regards, Chris and the Ocean View Chalets... More
