The European owners of the lodge have chosen for a modern and minimalistic European design. If you want to watch television at night, this is not the place for you. But if you like peacefulness, personal relationships, eco-friendly environment and incredible views out of each room (you can choose mountain or ocean — the ocean view rooms have their own private balconies), this is the place for you.
I can not complement Fran (co-owner) enough. Always asking if there is anything (else) that she can do or help with. Great hostess and concierge. Don't worry about where to eat tonight; she knows and will have a reservation for you in no time.
Breakfast is tasteful, organic is the theme. Freshly baked bread and crepes from Fran, muesli, yogurt, cheese, fruit, vegetables, organic coffee and milk, fresh juice, etc. It is served buffet style and eaten at a long, family-style table, where all guests sit together. Great place to socialize, make new friends and exchange travel experiences.
There's also a very spacious outdoor deck/patio with spectacular views of the ocean and the mountains.
The location is perfectly situated for kayaking and hiking at Abel Tasman National Park.
We had a memorable time at the Split Apple Lodge and will definitely stay there in the future.
