Reviewed 29 April 2016

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...

Set amongst trees with views to the ocean. A short walking distance to everything there is to offer in the area. Cabin was very neat & equipped with most things one would need. Chris at reception is very friendly & helpful with suggestions. Very enjoyable stay.

Chris met us in welcome to these lovely chalets. Dated now, everything in wood but very clean and all you need for a short stay. Chalets are individually set amongst the trees, no midges when we were there in March! Very private and romantic. Gorgeous views over Sandy Bay. The family who own the chalets are hyper green with lots...

We stayed here for four nights and we could have happily stayed longer. The staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. There are laundry facilities for which you pay a very small fee. The breakfast is continental style but eggs however you like them are included. They are self catering so make sure you get supplies before...

This was just an amazing place to spend Christmas - stunning views - secluded - exceptionally well equipped self catering accommodation - including a dish washer and a washing machine.

The worms are a good thing! They are part of the hosts' dedication to an environment-friendly approach to inn-keeping. Organic waste is saved to feed the worms, which turn the materials into a high quality compost. As for the views, you could sit in the living room of your chalet, or on the patio, and do nothing but drink in...

We stayed in a one bedroom chalet and, as promised, it afforded an uninterrrupted ocean view. It was peaceful, with only the sound of birdsong for company. The bed was comfortable and the rooms were clean and serviced daily (we stayed 4 nights). The chalet was well equipped for self catering, but we took advantage both of the breakfasts and...

This is s terrific location for accessing the Abel Tasman National Park. Which in itself provided a real highlight for our time in New Zealand. I loved this place! The views are spectacular from the deck and the chalets are so very comfortable and well equipped. We stayed for sadly only 2 nights but will be back!
