Property Description

There is a great range of accommodation options to suit you including dorm beds, private cabins, glamping and some wicked camping sites. We can book in activities around the area, arranging free transport for you to get where you need to be.

We have a food truck (open in summer months) large outdoor decking, multiple BBQ areas, movie rooms right at the start of the Abel tasman. Yoga classes are coming back this summer and we have set up the vegi garden beside our Native Tree Nursery! Being off grid we work closely to reduce our impact and have recently signed onto The Marahau Pledge, creating positive outcomes for our little village including our net zero position.

We also have movie and reading rooms so there is space to unwind as well as the communal kitchens and dinning rooms to meet some new people and explore the area.

We also aim to help you make the best decisions about things to do in the area. We organise water taxis, kayaking, sailing trips into the park as well as guided walking tours, seal/penguin watching, canyoning, caving, sky diving, hand gliding, microlight flight and more. We will organise transport for you, so you can be picked up from The Barn!

Location location location. One of the most beautiful places you can put a hostel. Reception was very nice, free wifi ran out after an hour which was a bit of a pain because we needed to plan the west coast and they charge after that. Only real drawback to the whole place in my opinion, otherwise if wifi isn’t important then it’s a must stay for cleanliness staff quality and everything else
