Thanks you for your lovely review. Yes, we are so very fortunate, to be living in an area full of natural beauty. The park, the golden beaches, the great coastal walkway - that's what made us leave our home and settle here. Good luck with your travelling and we might see you again at Buena Vista.

The Buena Vista apartments are situated in a breathtakingly exotic landscape surrounded by a unique birdlife overlooking the Bay. Quiet, close to nature, relaxing, balm for the soul. Ideal centrally located, only a few minutes walk from the Abel Tasman National Park entrance and about 10 minutes to the center of Marahau, the beach, restaurant, kayaking etc. After my long...

We stayed five nights over Christmas, the family who run the place are lovely. They were incredibly friendly and helpful during our stay, solving a few of our problems which really helped! The apartment, along with the balcony, are very spacious and both are a pleasing/relaxing place to spend time with stunning views of the bay. The kitchen is well-equipped...

We had a great stay in the Salsa at Buena Vista. The place was fabulous. Very spacious and we'll stocked. We cooked meals in while there and enjoyed the full moon over the water at night. I'd definitely recommend the Buena Vista apartments.

Lovely secluded place in the bush, close to Abel Tasman National Park gateway at Marahau. There are three apartments. Ideal if you wish to walk in Abel Tasman Park. There are nearby restaurants, and the Fat Tui fantastic fish and chips. There are glowworms at night and tuis in the bush. Accommodation is basic but comprehensive, with full kitchen and...

Would definitely stay here again. Great location, nice roomy common area, and convenient access to Abel Tasman national park. Just up the hill from the Fat Tui, awesome sandwiches. Loved the sound of the running water just outside our room. Great sleeping! Also a stunning view of the Tasman Sea in the distance.
