Great cabin, nice helpful people

Very helpful about suggesting hikes. Made a dinner reservation for us to make sure restaurant would stay open that late. Room was very comfortable and had everything you would need, fridge, cooktop, microwave. We shopped in Nelson so we could make our own breakfast and lunches. There are only 2 restaurants in town. Good WIFI. We were very happy with the lodge and the park is very beautiful though we were not able to hike as much as we wanted because of the heavy rain.

Great location and facilities.

Excellent location near the Able Tasman track and the facilities are great. BBQ and kitchen supplied so you can cook yourself (not the greatest Vegetarian options in town). Rooms are a good size and clean. Owners leave you alone unless you need something. quite and good birdlife.

Really excellent place

This place is faultless. Stylish, roomy, comfortable with a hot tub you can book, a beautiful garden and excellent facilities. It’s right next door to where the water taxis leave. Nice little touches like herbs to pick for your cooking and a book share. Not surprisingly the hosts are very helpful and well organised. I don’t usually rave about places but in this case it’s appropriate. Book early.

Just spent an amazing 5 nights at the Abel Tasman Lodge in Marahau. This is by far the highlight of our trip around NZ so far. Our modern two bedroom lodge was very clean and comfortable and well equipped for self-catering for 4 people. As well as our own kitchen there was a very clean and well stocked communal kitchen that we could have used. The lodge location was so peaceful and the view from the patio was stunning. We made good use of the complimentary spa pool (great after a long walk or kayaking) and the laundry too. The owners Jocelyn and Scott are extremely friendly and helpful and will go out of their way to assist visitors for which we were very grateful. The accomodation is great value for money and well located close to the water taxis and kayak operators so no need to use the car when there. We had a fantastic couple of days walking in the NP using water taxis and spent a day kayaking around the marine park. We would recommend the Abel Tasman aqua taxi service and also Abel Tasman Kayaks. Remember to stock up on groceries in Nelson or Motueka before arriving as the shop in Marahau is small.

Superb accommodation in a perfect location

Superb location in a beautiful little village adjacent to the Abel Tasmin National Park water taxi service which is an absolute 'must do'. Immaculate accommodation including a separate fully equipped kitchen and laundry room close to the room.Very helpful owners who clearly cherish their property and really want you to enjoy your stay with them.
