Beautiful hostel surrounded by apple orchards and vineyards. Rooms and bathrooms were large and clean - felt like we were in a hotel. Kitchen is good size and well equipped with lots of seating in the living/dining area. Lovely separate tv room with big flat screen tv and leather sofas. Grounds are beautiful - lovely outside decking areas. Location is just outside the town of motueka (5min drive). Easy to access by car - free parking. Owners are lovely - so friendly and helpful - giving us chocolate and biscuits and having nice chats. They make you feel instantly at home. One of our nights we had the entire hostel to ourselves which was lovely and peaceful after a days kayaking Abel Tasman. Motueka is pretty much the gateway to Abel Tasman NP - so this is a great place to stay if your planning on kayaking or hiking or skydiving (Abel Tasman skydive is wonderful). A truly beautiful hostel and definitely the nicest we stayed in in the whole of nz (month travel).
