We stayed 3 nights in one of the Beachfront cottages and had an amazing time. The weather was just great and the cottage itself is beautiful and well decorated. When we arrived there was a warm genuine welcome. When i mentioned my name, the staff did know the name of my girlfriend already and we were clearly expected.
In the cottage there is a very nice 2 person jacuzi, a fully equiped kitchen, a BBQ, a big bedroom, bank and chairs, dining table and chairs, TV, Wifi, 3 sets of 2 different chairs on a private deck and most important of all, a fantastic view of the sea.
From our bedroom window we can look directly at the empty beach. The way the moonlight reflects in the water at night is amazing and also the sunrise is very beautiful.
The owners are very helpful and did know our names still when we met them, which is very attentive. The homemade muesli is awesome and when we mentioned that, we were presented with the recipe so we can make it at home.
The homemade yoghurt is lovely too, just like the homegrown vegetables and fruit that are offered.
Located in between Abel Tasman NP and Kuharangi NP, its a nice place to stay if you want to visit both parks (like we did).
Its pricy, thats true, but its worth it.
