A really stylish, generous size, well appointed room with a large modern bathroom. This really did feel like a studio you could make your home away from home. Superior cleanliness and lots of little touches. We really appreciated the owner turning up at the cafe we were breakfasting at to return our phone charger. Outstanding service! We would definitely recommend!

And thank you so much for the wonderful review. We hope that we might see you both again some time in the future. Stephen...

My wife and I stayed in Nautilus Lodge Motel 2 nights at the end of July, in a spaceous and beautiful motel suite. In spite of very cold weather, we managed to keep fairly warm. The service was very good.

Good morning Kristian. Thank you for the great review. We always appreciate it when our guests take the time to post a review, especially when your holiday is over and you are back at work. It was very cold whilst you were here and those new heat pumps are doing a great job of keeping our guests warm and toasty....

We spent two nights here and loved it. Very modern, spacious and quiet. They offer Free wifi, the room was air conditioned and had its own balcony. Would have loved to have stayed here for longer. Wonderful service. What every accommodation provider should strive to be like.

Stayed here in Jan2015. It was very high quality and absolutely spotless. Would recommend to anyone. The owners were extremely nice people and very helpful. Ideal for visiting the Abel Tasman track which is about 10Km down the road at Maharau. Rooms are very well appointed.
