If you love nature & sea, native bush, beaches and organic food, you’ll call Marahau paradise. Walk to the beach or the Abel Tasman Park, have a swim in the sea or in the river, go kayaking with seals or choose a hammock with the bellbirds and tuis. The property has stunning views on Tasman Bay and is directly overlooking the Abel Tasman Park.
