Sarah and Ian were perfect hosts during our two nights at this beautifully located and operated Lodge. We were upgraded to a suite, with large rooms and which was very comfortable. They helped us decide how to spend the two days at the Abel Tasman National Park (an experience not to be missed), and were a delight.

A wonderful experience very close to Nelson, New Zealand. Beautiful, spacious accommodation with a lovely view of the bay. Our hosts, Sarah and Ian were gracious and helpful. They assisted us with directions to local attractions and restaurants and provided wonderful hands on experience to our travels in this area of the South Island.

The property is perfect for two couples or a family with older children as the second bedroom is separate and upstairs, giving all parties a little space. With a beautiful backyard complete with Bar-B-Q, a great family style meal can be enjoyed by all. The owners leave you to your peace and quiet, but are available if needed just by...

We spent two nights at Atholwood and our stay was first class. The rooms were large, comfortable and clean. The hosts were warm and helpful. It is a short drive to Abel Tasman and this was a great place to stay and enjoy the park.

After a lovely drive from Picton we arrived at Atholwood and were shown to a modern, well appointed apartment with an absolutely stunning view. We were very well looked after by our hosts Sarah and Ian. Breakfast was made to order and reached the same very high standards achieved by the establishment as a whole.

My wife and I just spent a wonderful three days at the Atholwood luxury country accommodation. Our hosts Sarah and Ian were gracious and accommodating in every way. The waterfront estate is immaculately maintained. I am a clean freak, but these two surpassed even my pickiness with the room prep. I have no idea how they clean the shower glass...

Great room, amazing view and an absolutely perfect breakfast! The hosts - Sarah and Ian - are just unbelievably nice. They not just help you with finding local restaurant but also with booking trips or giving advice for trips around the place. We really loved our stay! We can just recommend staying at Atholwood!!

Our apartment at Atholwood was modern, light, airy and spotlessly clean. It was very well equipped boasting incredible views across the Waimea estuary to the mountains beyond. The gardens were beautifully kept. Sarah and Ian were excellent hosts and served lovely breakfasts in the main house. Sarah also supplied delicious home baked brownies everyday, these were much appreciated. Our hosts...

We just loved our stay here. Ian and Sarah are superb hosts - engaging, knowledgeable, funny and ... well Sarah makes the most gorgeous cakes! Where to start? Atholwood is down a little lane, next to the Bronte gallery and very close to a vineyard! It is two minutes away from Mapau with stores and bistros - ideal. The grounds...

The Cowdrey Suite is a luxuriously appointed first floor apartment in a stunning location looking out over a peaceful inlet, tucked away towards the end of a quiet peninsula but less than half an hour's drive from Nelson airport (and a short walk from the Rimu Grove Winery!). We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay and can highly recommend.

Thank James B
