We spent 2 nights at Idesia in March. It was our first stop on the South Island and set the standard for the rest of our trip. Jenny and Barry welcomed us with tea and biscuits on the patio. Conversation was warm, friendly and very helpful especially regarding places to visit. Both were very helpful when we had an issue... More

Originally was double booked but the owners sorted it out with no problem. Nice welcome with tea and biscuits. The room was not very big but very clean etc. and had tea/coffee making facilities (tucked into the cupboard). No ensuite but the bathroom was next door. A bit out of Nelson but only took 5-10 minutes to drive into town.... More

Here we have had best breakfast on our travel in NZ with wide choice of food and Barry has prepared us really delicious eggs. We've stayed in several b&b... More

We spent 4 nights here and enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. Jenny and Barry were nice hosts and prepared a wonderful breakfast together. We had the room downstairs with 2 split beds.

We stayed for two nights at Idesia B & B in March 2014 and the warmth and sincerity of the welcome given to us by Jenny and Barry was very much appreciated. From the moment we arrived and were entertained to tea and Jenny's home made biscuits on the rear terrace we knew we were among friends. Our hosts had... More

We stayed at Idesia for three nights in February. Jenny and Barry were very welcoming and offered us a lot of advice on local restaurants and activities. They did not overwhelm us with information but listened to our thoughts and advised us accordingly. We had the downstairs bedroom with ensuite. It was a large and very comfortable bedroom with good... More

Stayed for three nights with my daughters. Our hosts were very kind and their knowledge of the area was of great help for us. We had a great stay! The house is located in a quiet area but with walking distance to both the town centre and the tracks.
