Two bedroom chalet for two couples...very homey and nice comfortable bed. Very comfy and clean...Nice patio overlooking the ocean for cocktails and snacks. Easy walk to dinner and the beach. Water taxis and kayaking within walking distance too. All four in our party very pleased with accomodations

We stayed only for two nights, but as soon as we had arrived, we felt we never wanted to leave. Such a wonderful place! I will come back at some point. It's such a wonderful spot on this planet. We rented a studio with a bedroom. We never managed to figure out the hotplates, so our attempt at an omelet...

We stayed in the studio next to reception with views towards the horse pasture. Although it wasn't an ocean view, it was very peaceful and quiet. The studio was very comfortable and well equipped. The location is close to town (walkable) but also very private and secluded - perfect! We took a water taxi and walked back along the Abel...

These Chalets are fantastic. What an Ocean view from every room. The bedroom was awesome, you are so high up you can sleep with the curtains open just for the view of the sunrise and sunset. Nothing to fault here. Will be staying here again, and again, highly recommended! Great staff and the managers were so helpful! 10/10

Fantastic location, great accommodation and 500 metres from the start of the walk. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Owners lovely and so helpful. If you want to stay close to the Park and have peace and tranquility this is the place to stay.

What a great location. Fantastic views, cute chalet surrounded by bush making it very private. Had every thing we needed. The owner was very friendly and helpful and made us very welcome. So handy to the start of the Abel Tasman track.

We stayed in a studio room with a stunning view over the beach and countryside. The location was idyllic. The room was well equipped and the inclusion of a citronella candle helped with those nasty little sand flies. We were also given an electric frying pan when we wanted to cook. The staff were friendly, particularly the parents and the...

The view from the chalet 4 was absolutely stunning. We had a nice view to both sides. The chalets are well equipped, but we could have used some nets to cover the windows. When opened, the flies are quite annoying.

My wife and I first stayed at the Ocean View Chalets in 2009. Having had such a good time there back then we decided to revisit some seven years later. This time we stayed in Chalet 10 - what an amazing view!! The facilities in this chalet were outstanding, as was the welcome given to us by our hosts. This...

Stayed here for 3 nights. The chalets are very comfortable and well equiped. There are stunning views over the ocean, and it is very quiet. Wished that we could have stayed longer, the owners were so helpful, booked a water taxi for us and gave us loads of local info. Would love to return one day
