We stayed 5 nights in a one bedroom chalet and did the Abel Tasman walks and kayaking each day from there. The lodge is next door to the Aqua Taxi and R&R kayaks so very easy for trips. It’s also half way between 2 restaurants, I recommend the Park restaurant. The chalet has everything you need and has an amazing bathroom shower. It’s extremely comfortable and our room had a nice deck with outdoor furniture and view of horses and country side. This is the perfect base for the Abel Tasman.

Thank you Jocelyn and Scott for an absolutely amazing holiday that the kids will be talking about for a long time to come.
The lodge was perfect for our family of four, with our friends’ family of five in the chalet next door.
The service was impeccable. The beautifully decorated rooms were cleaned to a very high standard every day.
All staff were welcoming and friendly, and the hosts, Jocelyn and Scott were very knowledgeable about the local area and more than willing to book excursions for us and organise activities. Every request from us was met with a smile, from buckets, spades and beach umbrellas to first aid and even a night light for the kids!
The chalets were all full, but the beautifully appointed and maintained grounds provided space and adventure for all the kids, and private spaces for the adults to relax in the knowledge that the kids were safe. Walking distance to the beach, kayaks, water taxi, the track, cafes and amazing ice creams!
Clean, well equipped communal kitchen and bbq area, and everything you’d need in the chalets themselves.
Can’t recommend this lodge more highly.
We will definitely be back, it’s just a matter of when!

We had 2 nights here and it so exceeded expectations. The rooms are extremely well appointed, with a small, but functional and well equipped kitchen. Additionally there is a fantastic shared large kitchen and two weber BBQs just outside in a lovely garden.
Such attention to detail throughout is really appealing and adds to the experience. Hot spa if you need it. Super comfortable beds, great towels and linen. Also a lovely area outside each unit to enjoy the peace and serenity.
Good location, right next to the excellent R&R Kayaks, walkable to the start of the track and down to the local shop and cafe.
We only spent 2 nights here, but I could easily enjoy a week's holiday.
Also for a real treat the Kowhai Suite looked exceptional.

Room tip: Best location in Marahau, so great for the Abel Tasman track and the beach. Handy to park the boat here as well.

The lodge is beautifully run and maintained by Jocelyn and Scott who go out of their way to make the stay and the experience of the area exceptional. The facilities and grounds are immaculate and the service fantastic in this fabulous location. Our 1 BR was excellent - really comfortable bed with lovely linen, well equipped small kitchen (the communal kitchen has absolutely everything else you would need) and quiet.
Very nice spa pool, easy parking and access and truly great value. Nothing to fault - can't wait to return!
