The property

This is Abel Tasman's very own best kept, Marahau Secret Garden Lodge. A comfortable and relaxed holiday home, 200m from the beach, with a timeless design and tasteful decor throughout. Wake in the morning and enjoy the tranquillity of the fully fenced, charming and characterful garden, where you'll discover ancient roses, mature fruit trees, natives trees and shrubs, all with the soundtrack of native birdsong from the active and close birds. From the living space here at Secret Marahau Lodge, French doors open out onto the sundeck, where you can enjoy alfresco living and dining under the grape vine covered pergola. Fire up the gas BBQ, and get into holiday mode. The garden is also ideal for kids, with a no-springs design trampoline, a children's swing, a swingball set and a petanque set to use on the large grassy areas. If, after a busy day, an afternoon siesta is just what you need, you'll love being able to out your feet up in the master bedroom opening out onto the wide verandah with a garden outlook. If you're sleeping upstairs, enjoy views of the sea, treetops, and even the stars through large skylights. During those colder months, Secret Marahu Lodge has an efficient wood-burning fireplace that warms the whole house. The bathroom is also well-heated, and all the beds have electric blankets available. So be prepared to get cosy! Secret Marahu Lodge is so close to some of the best parts of this region. It's within walking distance of the entrance to Abel Tasman National Park, a safe swimming beach is just 200m from the gate, and the local shop, as well as quality eateries and takeaways, are also just a short walk away. Local activities include kayaking, boating, horse riding, mountain biking, walking and bird watching. Or use this as an ideal base to explore the whole Tasman region on day trips! Look no further for something special this trip, the Secret Garden Lodge welcomes you.
