Fraser Highlands Retreat
Reviewed 30 March 2017

We stayed in the small cottage 50m from the main B&B property - with a definite Scottish Highland air about it. Jim & Sue are very welcoming and the views from the cottage are truly spectacular. It makes a great base to explore this part of the Abel Tasman coast & the cottage is well equipped for a couple to look after themselves for several days. No problems at all and worked very well fully self-catered.

Room Tip: This is a quiet, private & secluded spot.

What a sweet cottage!
What a view!
What congenial hosts!

Three nights in the super nice cottage went by much too quickly. Great bed, full kitchen (particularly liked the large cereal bowls), fast wifi, plenty of water pressure in the shower and a washer and clothesline. Would be more than comfortable to stay for a couple weeks. One more reason that we SHALL return to New Zealand. We can only hope that we can book the cottage once again.

We booked here at the last minute based on the recommendation from fellow travelers, and we were so glad we did! Jim and Sue were absolutely delightful and passionate about their wonderful place in the world. Our room was quite comfortable, clean and spacious. The grounds have been lovingly tended over the years and feature many varieties of fruits, vegetables, and ornamentals. The views are stunning! This is a must-stay spot!

Jim and Sue are truly passionate hosts in this 'taste of Scotland' accommodation ideally located for enjoying Abel Tasman and Golden Bay. We were so well looked after and brilliantly guided to make the most of our few days stay, to ensure we did the things we wanted to do. Our room and breakfast (with great home baking) was great and we would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Don't be put off by the meandering driveway to the house - it's worth it!

We all want to come away from our vacations refreshed and with good memories. The hosts at Fraser Highlands were such special people. Their welcoming home, filling breakfast and good conversation made this a wonderful experience. We were in the queen bedroom on the second floor of the house. The views from our room of Tasman Bay were spectacular. Our breakfast was an assortment of cereals, yogurt, toast or muffins, juice, and a fruit salad. From the Fraser's garden we also had cooked rhubarb and fresh plums. Sue graciously let us do a load of laundry. We felt very fortunate to have stayed two nights.
