We booked this lodge at short notice when our original booking elsewhere had to be cancelled courtesy of typhoon damage. We were so lucky to find it! The welcome from Margaret was smashing but the accommodation superseded all expectations: the location, view, facilities and room were all outstanding - the best of our 4 week trip. They had thought of everything: bath robes, fruit bowl, interesting art pieces. A wonderful eye for detail and immaculately done. All just stunning!! Thank you so much.

A really delightful property, consisting of three cottages on stilts over a very pretty large pond. Well equipped small kitchen area, lounge with large balcony, comfortable bed and good bathroom with underfloor heating. All very clean, with some nice additional touches such as fruit bowl, cookies and milk left in the fridge. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Convenient for Abel Tasman Park, we were delighted to have found this accommodation. We really enjoyed our peaceful stay.

Just amazing everything was thought of! All the small touches where accounted for not to mention the location is breathtaking situated on the edge of a huge man made pond on a old apple orchard. Marian & Mike where very lovely and super helpful. The photos don't do it justice ! great location 10 mins from Mapua amazing if your traveling the west coast. Hope to visit again.

Aporo Pondsiders is Pastoralic. Quiet and isolated. 10 minutes from city. 25 minutes to Abel Tasman NP. Big room very convenient with all what you might dream. Sitting in the balcony or waking up to hear the birds is magnificent. Very well equipped kitchen. Isolated bedroom. Simply perfect. The best place we found in New Zealand
