Fodor's Review

With Abel Tasman National Park 200 yards in one direction and the Marahau beach 200 yards in the other, this location is hard to resist. The family-style lodge has spacious self-contained chalets, studios, one and two bedroomed, clustered in groups of two or four with native gardens between them. Prices range from NZ$175 to NZ$195. Units are finished in natural wood and have high cathedral ceilings opening to the view, New Zealand wool carpets, queen- or king-size beds,

and balconies. Room-service breakfasts, prepared packed lunches, and a communal kitchen are available. Staff can help make reservations for sea kayaking, water taxis, seal swims, and hiking. The lodge has a Qualmark four-star-plus and Enviro Silver rating. Fresh vegetables from the garden available when in season.
