We have stayed at Ocean View Chalets many times over the last decade and look forward to each return visit with great excitement. It is our favourite place to stay in the world (and we do travel quite a bit). Robert is an exceptional host - a welcoming genteel man - nothing is ever too much trouble. The chalets are...

My wife and I spent 2 nights at the Ocean View Chalets in Marahau in early March 2013. The chalets are located pretty close to where the road ends and the park begins (maybe 1km away at most). The town of Marahau, a 10 minute walk from the chalets, is tiny and consists of just a couple of places to...

Wow, what a place to stay. The location is wonderful, right near to the start of the national park. We stayed for 3 nights and it was perfect for a day of walking and then a day of Kayaking. The hosts are wonderful, very helpful in all respects. We had a studio chalet which had a lovely balcony and chairs....

Ocean View Chalets are at the end of the road in Marahau, To travel further you'll need to walk, paddle or take a water taxi. And that is perfect. We had the distinct pleasure of spending three nights in a studio room and our only disappointment was that we had to leave. If you are looking for a base from...

This is the perfect base for visiting Abel Tasman NP. Up on a hill the chalets are far enough from each other to provide perfect privacy. The chalet we were in was spacious, well maintained and had a big balcony- almost a veranda. And views of the bay from balcony are gorgeous. Congratulations to Konstanca and Robert for this grandiose...

We really did not want to leave. The views from the chalet were amazing. The chalet was very comfy. The living room/sitting area had a fantastic view of the ocean and a pasture of horses grazing happily. The cook top required an engineering degree from Germany in order to operate it. Everything was very classy and cozy. I would highly...

We stayed in one of the cabins & it really was as if we were in our own bit of paradise. Beautiful views, comfortable room - just relaxing on the veranda of the chalet, soaking it all in, we couldn't have asked for anything more. We had a studio room for 1 night, because a cabin wasn't available, & the...

Really loved this place...beautiful setting, peaceful and the cabins were well furnished and comfortable. Only stayed one night because of availability and felt like we were in the Garden of Eden. The place just has an incredible vibe ! Would love to go back for a week or a month and will book well in advance.

“All rooms are good, but naturally the higher the cabin is on the hillside, the better the views. That said, we had one of the lower rooms and still found the view from the living room excellent.”
