This is an amazing place :-). We were so lucky to spend 3 nights here and we would highly recommend this place to anyone driving by or past towards Abel Tasman National Park. Stan and Jenny were great hosts and ever so helpful, doing anything they could to help us (which was a lot seeing as we don't drive). Breakfast was a beautiful spread and again, you could have anything that you wished for (ok maybe not anything!). We found the place to be really spacious especially with only one other room and though the other room had different occupants every night we were there we really saw them or had to share the lovely pool/hot tub.
The Tasman Store does good sandwiches and Mapua Wharf has several amazing places to eat.
Def sad when we left and we hope to be back whenever we come back to NZ. Stay here, you won't regret it!
