We stayed for 3 nights at Te Puna Wai and I must say the hospitality, room and attention to detail were first class. Richard & James couldn't do enough for you. We stayed in the top floor Fifeshire Suite and the views of the sea and Abel Tasman National Park were second to none. The complimentary beer and wine in the fridge together with the tea & coffeee in the room was most welcome. We went walking one day in the park and Richard kindly lent us a backpack and map for the trip. Our trip to Nelson and surrounds was greatly enhanced by our stay at Te Puna Wai (Freshwater Spring). Thanks Richard & James.
