    Owner was very sweet and knowledgeable about the area. The private cabin was very clean and had extra blankets and heater as we got into fall season it was getting a little cold overnight. Very close to the Abel Tasman park so that was convenient...

    Cute little cottage only a few yards from the beach. Convenient to the two restaurants and one general store. Within walking distance of the park and the beach. We loved the place and highly recommend it if you’re going to be in the area. ...

    Everything was perfect. Rose, the host, is super friendly and helpful. The accommodation was spotless and very comfortable. We had everything we needed. The lovely little verandah was an added delight. We can't recommend this highly enough
