Dear Don N, I am sorry that Motueka wasn't suggested to you. Unfortunately as Marahau is a very quiet place in the winter months (part of the off season appeal :) ) eating options are limited. I am sorry that this dampened your opinion of Marahau and the Ocean View Chalets. We have fantastic fully self-catered chalets available. I am,...

Ocean View Chalets were a real find on our travels round South Island. The one bedroom chalet was superbly fitted out and was very comfortable with great views towards the sea. It very much felt like one was at home rather than staying in a motel. Sadly, this particular accommodation was booked for our third night so we had to...
