We stayed here a couple nights while on our honeymoon and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place is huge and has a wonderful view. Bert and Paulette were great hosts and we felt right at home. It's a bit hard to find but other then that, no complaints. Thanks so much! Hope to come back again!

Not as cozy as a typical B&B, but amazing view and lots of space to hang around. Bert and Paulette were most gracious and very informative. Wonderful breakfast with all the other guests. This was one of our favorite stays during our New Zealand vacation. The Lodge blends in so beautifully with the gorgeous surroundings. We hated to leave this...

The Abel Tasman National Park is so incredibly beautiful and the Split Apple Lodge is the perfect place to stay while exploring the park. Bert and Pauline are wonderful hosts, giving good recommendations on kayak hires, water taxi trips, hikes, and local restaurants. The ubiquitous New Zealand B&B breakfast of yoghurt, cereal, fruit, and bread is kicked up a notch...

Amazing place! Amazing people! What a nice stay we had there. We stayed 2 nights there for Christmas during our honey moon. Our hosts, Paulette and Bert have been so nice with us. On the top of kind attention and a very nice welcome, they also prepared a great authentic kiwi BBQ. No actual kiwi on the menu, fortunately... :)...

A little tricky to get to, but a lovely site with the ocean in one direction and the mountains to other from this mountain top lodge. Delightful hosts. Margaret Hosts Paulette and Bert were very pleasant and helped us to arrange a kayak trip in Able Tasman Park. The accomodations were very nice. Breakfast was continental. Jim

Split Apple Lodge is a purpose-build B&B, at the top of a hill with spectacular views. It has large bedrooms and spacious common areas. Continental breakfast is well done. Burt and Paulette are friendly and helpful. The grounds are a gardeners delight though the American Quail love the vegetable garden.
