Since our first stay in 2016, we have visited The Rocks Chalets half a dozen times. It is an easy distance from Nelson, the Takaka Hill road is finally back to 'normal' (given the type of road it is!), and The Rocks Chalets provides a perfect gateway to Takaka and Golden Bay. Among the individual chalets, we normally prefer the Kereru because of its privacy and secluded dell. This time we stayed in the Kiwi since it was winter and we wanted to maximize the sun. The chalet was spotlessly clean, comfortably furnished, and well provisioned. It invites you to relax in comfort the moment you walk in. Leanne and Lloyd are attentive hosts who welcomed us back as good friends - which we have become. All meals, except for dinner, can be prepared easily in the kitchen area. Over time, the hosts have continued to improve the comfort of the facilities and the charm of the garden surroundings. The two full days we had, based on The Rocks, were delightfully relaxing and thoroughly worthwhile. We shall be back before the end of the year!…
Great location, Easy to find on main road into Takaka. About 500 meters from the main town. Best equipped apartments/motel rooms ever stayed in. Great host with excellent check in policy. Tariff is very fair, Service cannot be faulted.
Excellent accommodation, the room had everything you could need for self catering. Spacious and clean with a comfy bed, great shower - interesting, private and comfy outdoor seating, bbqs as well as an outdoor kitchen area. A friendly warm welcome when we arrived with information available on the surrounding area.
Awesome venue, have thought of everything, wonderful hosts only too keen to make the stat great. A great central location for the north. Very clean, good hot water, units with BBQs were great and very clean, good indoor outdoor flow areas, cleaned the BBQ each morning for us, it was sparkling. Brushes and water for cleaning the mountain bikes was very handy. Thanks so much for making this a great stay for both couples travelling in our group. 😎😍👌
We stayed in the Moorpork house - it was absolutely fantastic, like home away from home. Very welcoming hosts - Leanne, Lloyd and Isaac - nothing was a problem and they took the time to tell us all about what the property has to offer. The glow worm cave was awesome and lots to explore - close to town. The house is very modern and private. Cant fault this property - loved our stay!!! Thank you Ant and Nadine
Stayed here recently. Very clean and private chalet, equipped with everything you need. Good location close to town. Had an outdoor bath in our chalet which was fantastic. Super friendly and helpful hosts.
Our family of four had a wonderful stay at the Rock Chalets. The rooms (Chalets) are well appointed, with all the conveniences and amenities you could ask for, complete with your own BBQ and private outside area. The bathroom in very nice and the private outside area, beautifully landscaped creates a uniquely refreshing setting. The layout makes you feel like you have the area all to yourself. The hosts were friendly and helpful - sharing local insights on great things to see and do (many not covered on google or brochures etc We would like to stay here again. Highly recommend (both for families and couples).
Lovely owners! Super friendly and helpful. The room was perfect and so clean 😁 such a nice atmosphere. My partner proposed in the glow worm cave so that'll always hold a special place in our hearts! Was a great stay, thankyou!
This chalet was so cute and quaint. Loved the outside bath and private garden. Just a perfect escape from reality for a couple of days. Really clean and everything we needed was provided. Great sized room also. Bliss! :)
Couldn't fault anything about this place - Leanne was a fantastic host - thought of every detail to make your stay comfortable but left you to it. Every amenity is provided, including board games and DVDs for a rainy day. The Chalet was very spacious, extremely clean and warm. Would love to come back in the summer and make use of the great outdoor area including the BBQ area. Well equipped kitchen with new appliances. The surrounding rocks are fascinating as is the glow worm cave. Perfect choice for a visit to Golden Bay, short walk to shops and restaurants.
