The cottage at Fraser Highland Retreat was the highlight in accommodation terms of our whole four weeks in New Zealand. It's up a long drive and is therefore a really great place to get away from it all, whilst being only a short drive from Motueka or Kaiteriteri (where we would definitely recommend doing one of the Abel Tasman cruises...

We stayed with Sue & Jim in October 2015 and somehow it slipped and we never wrote any reviews (for our entire trip) but this is a place one will not forget. Sue & Jim are such wonderful hosts, that was the nicest thing about staying in this lovely B&B. The room we had upstairs was nice and clean. The...

What a wonderful place. This is a little bit of Scotland well worth a visit. We stayed a couple of nights, on the second night we were entertained to a bag pipe rendition by the owner Jim. He is of course an accomplished player and truly amazing to boot. The B and B is very well appointed with stunning views...

Jim and Sue are so welcoming and their house is beautiful and unique, with great vistas all over the bay and set in a perfect location near the entrance of Abel Tasman NP. Thank you for sharing it with us for a few nights :). Highly recommended!

Our stay at the cottage at Fraser Highland Retreat was the highlight in accommodation terms of our whole four weeks in NZ. It was very comfortable, well equipped, spacious and in a very peaceful location with really great views. Jim and Sue were extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome.

A beautiful Highland Mini Castle high on a private hill overlooking orchards and the town and out to the Tasman Sea. Beautifully appointed en suite rooms. Breakfast is a treat with fresh fruit and home made muffins.

Lovely hilltop setting and convenient to Abel Tasman & wine tasting. Hosts Sue & Jim will go out of their way to insure your satisfaction. Great breakfasts with homemade and homegrown food. Closest restaurants in Marahau, about 15 minutes.

Nestled in the bush, about 1 km off the main rd with spectacular views it makes the perfect retreat. The location is fantastic about 10mins from Marahau and less than 10mins from Kaiteriteri. We stayed in the top room with ensuite. Comfortable bed, great shower and some nice touches (coffee/tea & chocolates) - has everything you need. Breakfasts were fresh...
