We stayed here for the second time in 9 years, and found it had been taken over by the adult children of the previous owners. They had worked hard to continue the excellent service we experienced last time. We used this accommodation for 2 weeks during the height of the summer season, to enable us to walk the Abel Tasman Way. The small town of Kaiteriteri was very busy but the motel had good free parking and was quiet during the day and night.
The only issue we had was the price of the wifi internet provided by a third party. As we had been away for over 2 months we used skype regularly to keep in touch with elderly parents and grand children. Skype is free to use, but the service provider charged per Mb used, and this meant we ended up with a very heavy internet bill after 2 weeks.
There are few restaurants in the immediate neighbourhood so be prepared to either self cater or eat in the local tavern.
