  • Very fun place to stay once you get up there

    Very fun place to stay once you get up there. Fantastic view and lots of birds, wekas and even a kiwi. The stars were beautiful. My husband said it was the best shower he's had in New Zealand----I loved the outdoor bath tub.

    We had a fabulous 5 days at the Hairy Hobbit, we would definitely stay again and we have been recommending it to anyone who wants to listen! It's a cute cosy bach, perfect for 2 people, with everything you need. We loved the outdoor bath and shower, we thoroughly enjoyed soaking our aching muscles in the bath after a hard day of running the Abel Tasman or biking over Takaka Hill. Thank you for a great week away, just what we needed.

  • A great place to stay high up in the hills behind Motueka

    A great place to stay high up in the hills behind Motueka. We had a week there. Superb cottage with every attention to detail in a very natural way. We found our stay very relaxing and special with the privacy, bird life, views, all with comforts too. Great shower and bath. loo with a view. Step drive up, recommend doing in daylight for the first time. Plenty to do in the region.
