These cabins are truly self-contained with your own laundry (detergent included) and kitchen (fully equipped). Your hosts, Christine & Lance, are helpful, informative & genuine. Kaiteriteri is the gateway to the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park. If you are...

Neat little motel with a series of separate buildings scattered on a hillside. Upper rooms have nice views over the beach. Walkable (along the beach) to Kaiteriteri where there are a few places to eat. Laundry in the room. Thanks for a lovely stay.

A peaceful and relaxing spot. We had a very spacious two bedroom cabin with a huge deck and large picture windows to enjoy great views of the sea.
