Stayed here 2 nights while on the Great Taste Cycle Tour. Very nice accommodation and very friendly owners. Thanks for the stay. Only a 10 minute walk into Kaiteriteri. Loved the area and the walking in the Abel Tasman Park.

We arrived in the rain, hungry after a long bike ride in a group of 10. The manager organised a table for us at the Beach Whale, and even drove us there and organised for the Beach Whale to bring us home - how about that??

We spent one night in this motel. The room had a king-sized bed, a well-equipped kitchen, a walk-in shower, a little patio outside. We were on the bottom floor of an apartment house, not a lot of ambience but a clean and serviceable room. The location is set back from the road, a block or so from the beach. Our...

The room was cleaned daily, towels replaced, beds made, garbage emptied etc. When we needed an oven to heat up some meat pies, Chris kindly offered the use of theirs and...
