We had a fantastic experience in Stewart Island because of this B&B. The place is clean, owner is very polite and helpful. We found them in TripAdvisor, and we decided to go with them despite not being ranked 1st or 2nd. I was told some B&B ranking in Stewart Island are manipulated by the owner pestering the guests to write... More

We spent over a month in New Zealand and this was the nicest, most friendly B&B that we stayed in. Given the hospitality we received throughout our trip, which was outstanding, this is definitely saying something about Wendy, her family and this beautiful property. Wendy picked us up from the ferry and drove us to her home. There are only... More

My friend and I spent two nights with Wendy at Greenvale B&B, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Wendy is very knowledgeable about Stewart Island and all its activities, and provides super accommodation with a stunning view of the harbour. Great breakfast in the morning and the chance to sit and chat in the evening over wine, nibbles and that amazing view.... More

We spent two absolutely magical days on Stewart Island. A large part of the magic was due to Wendy Hallett. The moment she greeted us when we disembarked the ferry, we knew we had met a very special person. She makes you smile just by looking at you. She is witty, capable, generous, and extremely knowledgeable. After she picked us... More

We made a spur of the moment decision to visit Stewart Island while holidaying in the South Island and were fortunate that Wendy was able to accommodate us at short notice. Our room had beautiful views over the bay. The huge bed was supremely comfortable and the bedside cabinet was stocked with chocolates and delicious homemade cookies. Nothing is too... More

I am a bird watcher with a patient wife. We booked the Bird Watching Bonanza on Stewart Island and needed somewhere to stay. As soon as I contacted Wendy Hallett by e-mail, we knew that 'this was the one'. We had lots of great B&B's in our month in New Zealand and this was right up there in terms of... More

We were lucky enough to enjoy Wendy's warm hospitality and delicious food in her beautiful home she shares with her guests. The house is beautifully appointed and tastefully furnished with objets d'art and antiques. All guest rooms have an ensuite and the view from the lounge is absolutely magnificent. Would definitely recommend giving Wendy a visit.

Four of us shared Wendy's home for 5 nights in Steward Island. The beds were so comfortable, the bathrooms roomy, and the views breathtaking. Wendy is like a mum with a cheeky sense of humor. She's a delightful host, as engaging as you wish, or happy to sense your need for privacy. Breakfast is as delicious and as hearty as... More
