We found the Blue Moon through airbnb, an experience which worked out great for both ourselves as well as our host Jane (we were both first time users of the site). The room is huge and gorgeous - the photos are quite accurate. This is the sort of place where you could just stay in and read a book all day long. The location is on a side street and opposite a berry(?) farm, so it is really quiet. The room itself feels very cosy despite being very spacious. There is not much going on in the immediate vicinity, but it is a short drive to Kaiteriteri beach and Marahau, where most tours to the Abel Tasman national park depart from. In short, plan to stay here as long as you possibly can - you will not regret it.
