We stayed in one of the spacious rooms for three nights and really enjoyed everything. The room is spacious and everything is very clean. The breakfast was more than delicious with self-made bread, muffins and jam. The hosts are just perfect and took care of our little son as if it was their own grandchild. That was amazing! They gave a lot of helpful recommendations and made our stay even more unforgettable. The whole accommodation is beautiful with stunning views and an easy access to the Abel Tasman Nationalpark. All in all, we can highly recommend staying at Fraser Highlands. It just feels like home.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the rooms upstairs which has a spacious bathroom ensuite. The views are stunning...

We stayed in the cottage at Fraser highlands and loved every minute. It is so peaceful up there, with beautiful views and a cosy, homely. Cottage. The hosts were very friendly and helped us with recommendations etc. We would definitely stay again.

Jim and Sue made our stay very special, they were amazing hosts and were extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. In addition it was excellent value for money and a place we highly recommend if visiting Abel Tasman.

The views are awesome as are the hosts. We stayed for 5 nights and without any doubt it was the best value for the money and we felt like we were cheating them for all that we got. Both Jim and Sue really go out of their way to make you feel at home and always at hand to help you. We were so sad to leave, indeed, had we not booked and paid for our next stay we would have stayed on for a few more days. There is so much to see and do in the area that we will be back next time and for much longer this time.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay in the area whether it is at the cottage or the B & B rooms you will really have a hard time finding a better place.

Thanks for a great time.
