Amazing hospitality, close to town, great room, comfy bed, great whirlpool bath after a long day warm welcome and fantastic breakfast. A beautiful home, with some amazing pieces of art. Was tickled by the port and sherry in decanters in the living room as a nightcap for guests, would have been rude not to :-)

Beautiful bed and breakfast. The large room and ensuite we had was at the front of the home just off the front porch entrance as you enter the house. It was beautifully appointed. Just stayed in the room and didn't mingle with other house guests. Cooked breakfast in the morning was great. Service by the hosts was excellent. Nothing was... More

/we were staying at this top notch B & B when Nelson experienced the tale end of Ita the cyclone. The winds were howling and blew over a huge sequoia tree nearby; yet we were safe in the comfort and luxury of our loft room. Val & Wayne are outstanding hosts and made our short time in Nelson very memorable.

We stayed 2 nights in the Garden Suite. We absolutely loved the stay and would return without hesitation. The facilities are fresh, clean and delightful. Breakfast was amazing, first class. The Villa is only 5 minutes from the township yet the only noise you heard was from birds. However, the best part was the welcome and friendliness of Val and... More

We enjoyed 3 nights at this lovely villa in Nelson. The view is elevated above the town, yet close enough to run down for a meal or to shop. Breakfast was delicious, and offered early for our morning excusion to Abel Tasman Park. Wayne and Val were very personable, and stored our luggage for 2 nights while we hiked and... More

We stayed in the loft suite - a large, most attractively decorated and furnished area. Warm welcome from the very helpful hosts Wayne and Val, and an excellent breakfast. Very handy position so close to the cathedral and shopping areas.
