Sans Souci Inn

11 Richmond Rd., Pohara, Tasman, 7183, New Zealand

A mellow spot just a two-minute walk from Pohara Beach has striking adobe and tile construction, wide verandas, and a turf roof, plus a touch of the Mediterranean about its decor. There's a small (and popular) restaurant, focusing on local-grown organic foods, and you can arrange to take breakfast and dinner here, but book this by 4 pm. The big communal bathroom is spacious and adorned with subtropical plants, and the garden abounds with grape and kiwifruit vines and big leafy shade trees. The rooms are truly comfy, light and airy, though all but one (which is self-contained) share the large bathroom complex.

PROS

  • self-contained family unit sleeps up to four
  • you can cook in the restaurant kitchen for yourself
  • friendly, thoughtful hosts

CONS

  • restaurant is only open late October to Easter
