Abel Tasman National park is best experienced in the sunshine and even though we came here early winter we were blessed with incredible weather to heighten our enjoyable stay.
The owner of the lodge greeted us on arrival and was the consummate host for the length of our stay. We had an executive suite which was warm, large, looked very new actually, with an enormous and very comfortable bed.
We absolutely loved our stay here. The lodge has a beach atmosphere with sand on the paths around the lodge, enormous, newly planted organic garden and lovely outdoor dinning area overlooking the wetlands.
The lodge blended into the surroundings as you would expect a environmentally sensitive designed facility should. The beach access is a short walk away to the most pristine beach imaginable. Even though it was winter and cold I had to have a swim and it was glorious.
I really can't fault any aspect of our stay. The staff were attentive, helpful and friendly. The owners made a big impression. They were hands on with the running of the lodge and this attention made for a very personal experience for us.
We would like to have stayed much longer and plan to return soon.
