Had a great 3 night stay here.Very impressed with the room, the kitchen, but especially the bbq and the views over looking the water. Great gass bbq. Good job we bought meat in Motueka on the way. Very spacious for 2 as we used the 2nd bedroom as a walk in wardrobe

Management response:

Thank you David, glad you enjoyed your stay. Regards Russell and Judy.

About the neighborhood
We're situated between Abel Tasman and Heaphy Tracks and surrounded by superb sandy beaches, being a short bush-walk - or drive - away from Farewell Spit Eco Tours (for which we are agents) and interesting local eateries and services. Welcoming hosts do all they can to make your stay memorable. Breakfasts consists of home-made and locally-produced foods - and come as an optional extra of $10 per adult. Internet Wi-Fi is available as well as laundry services if required. A potter's studio is open most days in the summer. The walking and birdlife are great, and the stunning north-west beaches easily accessible, including Wharariki and Cape Farewell; access to Pillar Point Lighthouse cliff-walks are a short drive away as are Farewell Spit walks, accessed from the nearby Cafe.
