We stayed for three nights at this superb property, which was one of the highlights of our trip. We loved our beautifully appointed lodge, the location with its delightful views, the swimming pool, the nightly dinner parties - where the delicious food was matched by great wines and good conversation - and the fact we were near to the activities...

Just a wonderful place. We stayed for four nights. Loved the views, our chalet, our breakfast in our room, the four-course dinners! Clare and Peter are terrific hosts. Had a great time dining (and wining) with other guests and feasting on Clare and Peter's food. (They are amazing chefs!). A great place to stay while exploring the Abel Tasman and...

What an amazing place! We stayed for 5 nights in one of the lodges and it was simply perfect. The lodges are comfortable and extremely well kitted out - especially if you like cooking. We have fabulous memories of cooking great meals on the barbecue on the veranda and basking in the evening sun whilst enjoying the glorious views and...

We spent 3 nights in one of the beautiful lodges. The privacy and comfort of the lodges makes them ideal for anyone wishing to get away from it all but still have the benefits of eating at the hotel - as the food is amazing. Clare and Peter are excellent hosts, able to provide advice on all things local so...
