Such a lovely place to stay. It is so secluded but also homey and close to town. The decorations are so stylish and the bed is very comfy. The kitchen has everything you could need for cooking and there are plenty of brochures about the area. Highly recommend!

What a beautiful place! The Kanuka huts are private, cozy and natural. A fantastic base for Abel Tasman and other features of this beautiful region. Very natural with thoughtful eco friendly products, and luxury to keep you warm in the evenings. Thank you for having us, Andrea!

Fantastic little slice of paradise in the bush! Our favorite moment was having breakfast out on the deck, listening to the bird song in the bush. Would definitely stay again

Amazing place to stay! The house is in the middle of the forest with only sheep for neighbour's and it has everything you need to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing time. Our 4 months old daughter loved it 😀 I strongly recommend it.

Make sure you find out the exact location and get clear directions! the architecture, decor and facilities are wonderful as long as you don't mind going outside in the pitch black to use the separate loo hut at night - but the stars are amazing!

Secluded venue, perfect for anyone who wishes to be up close with nature. Unique venue with its eco design. Car recommended and also a torch as it gets pitch black at night...perfect for seeing stars. Lovely sheep by the venue!
