“Lovely peaceful escape - great value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2009

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in October and it was one of the nicest and certainly best value places we stayed on our trip around New Zealand. It was so peaceful with great views, we felt like we had really escaped from it all. The chalet was the perfect size for the 2 of us, had a big TV and a kitchenette for making small meals. One evening we made use of the gas barbecue and sat outside to enjoy the view out over the hills. Our chalet had a nice comfy bed and a great shower, which was just what we needed after a few activity packed days in the Abel Tasman Park. We were a short side trip off the main road between Motueka and the National Park - about a 5 minute drive to the town and a 15 minute drive to the Kaiteriteri tour operator base. We would have loved to have stayed here longer and would have no hesitation recommending it to others.

Great hosts, great room with all the features a traveller requires, plus the rooms have peaceful views over the surrounding countryside. Don't bother to look elsewhere.

These chalets are in a beautiful valley just outside Motueka. Like our own little paradise they arenew and with double glazing are nice and warm. Views are magnificent with orchards all around and the sea in the distance. We walked up through their forest to the lookout and enjoyed all the local birdlife. We went to the National Park close by, very pristine and untouched in the crisp weather. Winter special price made it very reasonable too.

Just returned from visiting the Abel Tasman National Park, and stayed at these chalets which are so close to the Park. They are new, very roomy, extremely clean with huge LCD Tv's and everything you could want. The sea view down the valley is breathtaking and it is really quiet, and so cosy and warm, we loved it. The owners were very helpful with heaps of local info and the price was very reasonable, great value. We will be staying again to do some more walks.

Beautiful surroundings for a short break, close to beach and Abel Tasman. Lovely new apartments with all the necessary crockery etc.
Lovely views over to the sea, peaceful surroundings.
Worth a trip over Takaka Hill to the Salmon farm where they smoke your catch.
The Jester Cafe also worth a mention, great for kids.
Recommended to friends on our return and hope to book again in the summer months.
Thanks to Kim and John for the lovely Easter Egg which we thouroughly enjoyed.

We stayed over Easter to visit the Abel Tasman National Park which is nearby and felt like we could stay forever. So quiet and had all you could need but close to everything, the park, beach, shops, hotel. Owners are really friendly and helpful with brochures and information on the local area, we even got a huge chocolate Easter Egg! Just Great!
