Maree and Ken are very helpful and know the area so well that we were able to get the most from our all too short stay. Simply the best.

What a wonderful spot to take a couple of days off the track and rest up. Maree is great and has tons of suggestions for activities. Top notch.

We spent two lovely nights here and Maree made us feel very welcome. Our unit was clean and cosy and had everything we needed. Maree went the' extra mile' by sending on 3 shirts that I left in the wardrobe (thanks Maree). Would be happy to stay there again.

Tidy suite located in a beautiful quiet garden away from traffic and tourists. Friendly welcome from the owners, well equipped unit, close to Abel Tasman NP attractions. It's a pity we didn't have more time to stay longer. Maybe next time...

Private deck and garden, clean newer studio unit with everything you would need for a short stay. Personally stopped by on the second night to see if everything was ok.

Will stay again and take advantage of their guided tours of the Able Tasman.

We just spent few days there and we loved it.
It just takes few minutes to go to Kaitiritiri and you avoid the crowd. You are also closer to the city if you need anything.
The accommodation located in a pleasant garden was very tidy and well design .
The lovely owners were very helpful.
We will definitely go back
Thanks

The title says it all. Very nice owners, we were left to our own devices completly. Small cottage, easy to keep clean, close to town and beaches, vegetable sales two doors away, and best of all- they supplied some of the best weather of the summer. Would recommend to any people wanting to stay in the area.
