My husband and I recently stayed for 3 nights at this exceptional property. Anthea and Brian were caring, attentive, generous and respectful hosts. They were more than happy to share their vast knowledge of the region with us and we found their recommendations to be spot on. We really appreciated the thought and effort that they put into making our... More

Bellbird Lodge is a beautiful place for a couple to stay. During our three night stay, our hosts Brian and Anthea told us things to do that we'd never have known about, including seeing 15 or so seal pups at low tie at Wharariki Beach. Anthea's cooking and service was exceptional.

We have spent 3 nights at the Bellbird lodge and Brian and Anthea are truly very impressive hosts. They have raised the bar on b&b hospitality and have become now our measuring stick when comparing others! We had the Rosewood suite which has a lovely cozy powder room where you can linger on the sofa with a book and tea.... More

After a long day in the car, we made our way up a winding road to a magical place that gradually came into view. Bellbird Lodge was the first of nine Bed and Breakfasts we stayed in on the South Island. Although we liked each one, the first was easily our favorite. One expects a lot if the word "luxury"...

My wife and I enjoyed our first two days of our honeymoon at Bellbird Lodge, and truthfully it was the best of our 3 week adventure! The level of comfort, the personal service and care, the incredible room, the magnificent surrounding views, the proximity to everything in Abel Tasman, their knowledge of the area and NZ, the most incredible breakfast...

A fabulous B&B, great views,homemade food and lovely attentive Anthea and Brian. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3day stay and would recommend it to anyone. It's close to the beaches at Kaiteriteri and just ' over the hill' from Golden Bay. Special !

Anthea and Brian have put a lot of thought into making this into what is undoubtedly one of the best places to stay in New Zealand. Helpful, kindly, considerate and thoughtful is just the start. Great breakfast Anthea and thanks for the picnic lunch on the day you arranged the water taxi for us to go walking in the Abel... More

We had a wonderful stay at Bellbird Lodge! It was my first night in New Zealand after a 40-hour-flight, and it was so relaxing that the next morning I felt like having spent two weeks of holiday already. A very warm Welcome, a very nicely decorated very tidy room, a nice and clean bathroom with homemade soap, and certainly the... More
