Myself and my partner stayed here for 2 nights whilst doing walks around Abel Tasman. We were in a double cabin which comprised of a bunk bed that was double at the bottom and single at the top and not a lot else as I remember, fairly small. That said it was perfect for our needs.
A short walk down a flight of steps (which werent very well lit in the dark) you came to the kitchen and living area. This again was quite small with only 4 hobs to cook on. We did have to wait to cook on both nights. There was a small round table to sit at and eat and a couple of stools around a breakfast bar. There were 2 2 seater sofas to relax on (no TV and tempremental WIFI). I imagine in the summer when the weather is good it doesnt feel as small as people will be eating on the picnic tables outside or using the BBQ.
The bathrooms were round the back of the kitchens in a seperate cabin. They were clean although I think there was only 2 showers. I didnt have to wait but I imagine you might in the busier season.
