We spent 3 nights here during our 6 weeks trip through New Zealand and Australia. We loved the Abel Tasman NP and this lodge really enhanced our stay. Perfectly located and quiet, yet within walking distance of restaurants and small shop. Very well equipped and the private patio was not overlooked. Our 2 bedroom chalet was roomy and beautifully appointed....

We stayed three nights while kayaking and walking in Abel Tasman NP. The hosts, Jo and Scott, were welcoming, informative about where to eat and what to do, and fun to talk with. They made reservations for one of our treks. The accommodations are spot on for the setting. Fairly simple but hardly plain. Very comfortable. Well equipped. The setting...

We stayed here for one night prior to a two day walk in the Abel Tasman National Park, and for one night after the walk. The accommodation was just perfect for our needs. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, and allowed us to leave our car on their property while we were away. The studio cabins we rented were...

Our family spent March 16-19. There were 9 of us and we rented 2 cabins. Both cabins were completely outfitted for everything. Kitchen Utensils, pots, pans, kettles, towels, showers, bedding etc. The cabins were beautifully and comfortably appointed as well. Including heaters if we needed them. They each had fridges, sinks and stove elements for cooking. They also supplied beach...

Came here for Auckland Anniversary weekend. Had the best time. Joce and Scott (the guys who run the place) were so helpful. They recommended and organised our kayak and walking tours, and they were just perfect. The lodges are in a really nice spot. Right next door to where the water taxis go from yet blissfully quiet. Our lodge had...

Scott and Jocelyn have created a delightful resort at the gateway to the Abel Tasman National Park. Our studio chalet was spacious and well-appointed, with a contemporary bathroom and nice toiletries. The resort has also earned green awards for environmental awareness, which shows up in every detail of this well-managed resort. My personal favorite is the shared kitchen facility, which...

Hi sophia818, Thanks so much for your kind review. Glad you enjoyed the kitchen which is really being enjoyed this season. As you say we are the ideal place to enjoy different walks into the National Park, with the water taxis so close but allowing you to enjoy comfort at the end of the day.
