We stayed in a chalet at the back of of reception with rural views. While I would have liked ocean views, I booked too late. But the rural view was beautiful and pastoral with fields and horses and lots of birds. It was delightfully quiet at night with no artificial light in windows. That was wonderful! The chalet had everything...

After travelling in the South Island for 5 weeks, we turned up at Ocean View Chalets for the last 4 days of our holiday. It's the best place we have stayed in the whole South Island. The chalet is very clean and well equipped. It is very private and with the amazing views, you can just seat and relax on...

We first visited this property primarily due to it being at the entrance of Abel Tasman National Park but keep coming back due to the very comfortable chalets and the magnificent views from them. The well equipped chalets are on a hillside overlooking Golden Bay, area farmland & the Park itself, and are sited to ensure privacy. Views from all...

Lovely well equipped chalet with amazing views. Warm welcome on arrival, chalet had bedroom separated partly by a curtain and single beds in main area, not needed on this occasion. Kitchenette had all you needed to make a simple meal, fridge, microwave with 2 electric rings, kettle etc. The situation is amazing with lovely views over the valley and sea,...

We stayed here for two nights and wish we could've stayed for longer. Our room had an incredible view of the Ocean and the adjacent property with horses on it. We loved our little cabin and thought the property was very well maintained and had everything we needed. The addition of space heaters was a great idea as the nights...

I stayed here for two night in June, woke up to absolutely beautiful morning views, with pukekos and all the 4-legged friends around and about. Chris was really helpful with the local things to do and see, and also gave me a great little map and good tips on Golden Bay, my destination from there. Loved my stay here!

The room we stayed in was pretty nice and had everything we needed. The views from the hillside are great as well. The problem we had was with the receptionist. We arrived right before 5 pm and asked her if there was a place to eat nearby. She directed us to the grocery store a few hundred meters down but...

Ocean View chalets are an excellent place to stay if visiting Abel Tasman. The chalets, although a little dated, are secluded from one another so you feel as though yours is the only one. The views across Sandy Bay and the surrounding bush give a wonderful feeling of peace and quiet. The chalets are well appointed and large enough for...

The location of Ocean View Chalets is perfect. Our room was secluded, yet in an ideal location for fabulous ocean and bush views. It is an ideal 'stepping-off' point for tours of Abel Tasman National Park. The room was very comfortable and well appointed. It has 2 good sized bedrooms to sleep 4 in comfort. The manager (Chris) was friendly...
