We spent three nights in Abel Tasman and really enjoyed the Ocean View Chalets as our home base. The rooms are all free standing cabins. Our one bedroom cabin was small but very well built, made of (I believe) pine. It was well built and attractive, seemed almost new, and was immaculate. There were beautiful views of horse pastures and...

This was the highlight of our sixteen day stay in New Zealand. The sea views were simply stunning from our Premium Chalet. It was a very spacious apartment with very comfortable seating, both in the lounge and both outdoor decks. It is a Family owned business and Robert, Constanza and Chris were just so helpful. They advised us on some...

We stayed here two nights in order to walk the Abel Tasman Coast Track. Our room was a studio so not as large as some of their other chalets. It was adequate and very comfortable, particularly the electric blankets. This place is a short walk from the park entrance which is where the one restaurant that was open was located....

We had a very peaceful, relaxing break here. Our chalet was comfortable and the view wonderful. The all-in-one microwave/cooktop/oven made cooking a bit challenging. Definitely worth shopping for groceries and wine in Motueka on the way through.

Ocean View Chalets are a handful of secluded, peaceful hillside cabins looking out over a field & the ocean beyond. If you are interested in walking the Abel Tasman Coast Track, this is the place to stay. The track entrance is just a 10 minute walk down the road and the main “town” of Marahau is only a minute or...

These cabins are spacious, great scenery and close to Abel Tasman. The views are awesome on the balcony overlooking the bay just outside Marahau. Buy groceries at Motueka for the kitchenette in the cabins prior to continuing to chalets. This was a great place to stay! Very scenic, quite, spacious, and close to park. Highly recommend.

“All rooms are good, but naturally the higher the cabin is on the hillside, the better the views. That said, we had one of the lower rooms and still found the view from the living room excellent.”
