We phoned here about 45 minutes before we arrived. Tony was very helpful, at first he said that he didn't have a cabin available but put me on hold and then said that they would have one ready for us when we arrived.
We arrived an hour or so later and met Tony. He is a lovely man who seemed like he would do absolutely anything to help his guests. We asked for some advice about what to do the next day and he had lots of ideas and local knowledge.
We went to our cabin to find an immaculate room, with fridge, toaster, kettle, heater and chest of draws. The bed was the most comfortable we have slept on in NZ. As we were unpacking our car the couple in the next cabin said that they had seen the staff working on the cabin prior to our arrival - I can only assume that they had specially finished off the fixtures and fittings for our arrival! Now THAT is what you call service!
The kitchen block was well stocked with pots/pans etc and there was an amazing organic vegetable and herb garden which guests can help themselves to!
The showers took a minute or two to heat up but once warm were lovely.
I would highly recommend this site to anyone looking for a friendly site with good access to the Abel Tasman, and most of all a comfortable bed!
