My husband and I highly recommend Baywick Inn! This was, by far, one of the best bed and breakfasts that we have ever visited. Everything was spectacular, from the lovely restored home to the amazingly accommodating hospitality of our hosts.

I am so glad that you enjoyed our 1880's restored home, in 'sunny' Nelson. We too think that Nelson is quite an interesting and pretty town. The waterfront and beach is gorgeous, the river walks are very pleasant and with Abel Tasman park so close,it provides great walks and fabulous kayaking. Tim and I both hope that you will return...

If you visit Nelson this is the place to stay! Janet and Tim are exceptional hosts. Lots of unexpected touches that made this stay unforgettable! The breakfasts were so good we turned our eating day upside down to make this the main meal of the day.

A welcome that was genuine from super hostess Janet in the beautiful colonial 2 storey home over looking mountains and river made us feel like friends. Janet and Tim are excellent and generous hosts offering a comfortable guest sitting room, after dinner aperitifs on the house, oodles of suggestions for what to do in Nelson. We had only one night...

We originally booked to stay at the Baywick Inn for 4 nights but finished up staying for over a week as it was so good. The location of Baywick is absolutely perfect - so peaceful and quiet yet a very short, safe, easy, flat stroll to town. This was one of the reasons we chose to stay here as we... More

Frankly, I've never felt as at home in a B&B, ever. The rooms a spacious, inviting, and comfortable. The place is reasonably well located, a short walk to downtown. But Janet and Tim made the trip. We ended the night having tea with Janet in her kitchen. When Janet found out we were doing a multi-day hike in Abel Tasman,... More
