Kia Ora and Welcome,

The Barn is a place of fun, adventure, relaxation and good times.

Situated in Marahau, the gateway to the Tasman Region's stunning Abel Tasman National Park, you 'couldn't be closer' to paradise. The Barn is just 1 minutes walk from the sea and the entrance of the Abel Tasman National Park, making it an ideal place to stay before, after or as a base during your explorations in the area.

The Abel Tasman National Park is perfect for sea kayak trips with plenty of shallow sandy bays to pull up on and explore.

You can take scenic cruises and water taxis too, if you don't fancy a paddle. Just ask anyone of the team for advice and help with booking.

The Barn Backpackers has accommodation options to suit all weary travellers and other services include an internet café, comfortable kitchens, bathrooms, a shop and laundry.

We look forward to hosting you in the future, if you have any queries don't hesitate to contact us.
