Loved my stay here - so relaxing and enjoyable. Accom is only a 15 min walk to the Abel Tasman Coastal Track which suited me perfectly. Also clean & tidy. Great sitting out on the deck with a cold beer and the beautiful native bush at your doorstep - especially after a day's kayaking or walking/running on the track Christa...

Absolutely great location and a truly beautiful flat. Sadly the welcome was not to match. We added extra guests ahead of time, which was agreed in writing with the host Christa, as was the additional cost. Perhaps this prompted distrust, which was unfortunate but it seemed to cause an issue from the outset and we were beset by criticism and...

Second review. Hi Claire and team, thank you for the second review from your party. I'm sorry that you arrived with more people than agreed - we do charge for extra guests. I'm pleased that you liked Herman and enjoyed the Abel Tasman, it is a beautiful part of the world. Hopefully you'll have a relaxed 2017."

Thanks to Christa and all of the staff. So helpful and great people. We felt so welcome, and settled straight into the holiday because of this. Rooms and facilities are also very well presented, very clean, and the rooms have everything you need.

We had a wonderful experience at Buena Vista! The location is superb with the water, bush, birds and the views and the beach and park close at hand. The apartment was spotless and well-appointed and we found Christa incredibly friendly, welcoming and helpful - she happily went the 'extra mile' to help us out. Thanks very much. We will certainly...

Thanks you guys for your great review. Its very rewarding, if people are happy and enjoying them selves when staying with us. You can always come back to our little bit of paradise, right by the edge of the popular Abel Tasman National Park with its golden beaches. Happy New Year.

NOT RECOMMENDED ! On a fabulous once in a lifetime trip to New Zealand and after meeting so many lovely NZ hosts we came upon Christa, this host .. She was hostile, rude, insulting and dishonest .. Constantly asking for more money than agreed. DO NOT STAY HERE .. Many other lovely, friendly places nearby.

Hello Claire and team, this is very funny, how you turn things around. Arriving with more people, than you had booked with us, for one. Being unhappy and travel tired. Not appreciating the most beautiful area to travel in and the great accommodation we provide to our guests. I feel sorry for you. Happy New Year and be good to...

A short walk from the start of the Abel Tasman track and the heart of Marahau, this accommodation is comfortable and well appointed. Free wifi and good kitchen. Christa is very knowledgeable and can book activities and recommend places to visit. We stayed in the Tango apartment which was spacious for a couple. View of the sea from the main...

Thanks you for your lovely review. Yes, we are so very fortunate, to be living in an area full of natural beauty. The park, the golden beaches, the great coastal walkway - that's what made us leave our home and settle here. Good luck with your travelling and we might see you again at Buena Vista.

We stayed 2 nights at Buena Vista Marahau apartments, in the salsa unit. We were pleasantly surprised to see the kitchen renovated and a much brighter apartment then the photos show. Did you was superb. Each morning we had a Tui bird feeding on the flowering trees by the deck. We were just a few days before the official season...

The Buena Vista apartments are situated in a breathtakingly exotic landscape surrounded by a unique birdlife overlooking the Bay. Quiet, close to nature, relaxing, balm for the soul. Ideal centrally located, only a few minutes walk from the Abel Tasman National Park entrance and about 10 minutes to the center of Marahau, the beach, restaurant, kayaking etc. After my long...

Had the pleasure to stay in the Tango apartment in December 2015. Stunning views and a massively helpful owner. Very well equipped. Close proximity to the beach. Simply the best place to stay in Marahau!
