Woody was a wonderful host. After a long 3 days walking in the Abel Tasman, she was exactly the tonic we needed. She looked after us amazingly, and we would highly recommend the wonderful room, stunning location, and warm hospitality. We can't wait to return

What can I say that hasn't already been said about this amazing inn and its hosts? Woodi and Johnny are two of a kind --- gracious, warm, funny, helpful, welcoming and kind. From the moment we entered, we were treated like family. Maybe better than family! What a treat in the middle of a long vacation to feel so comfortable... More

I never wanted to leave. Woodi and Johnny are the ultimate hosts- open, warm, fun and funny. The house is gorgeous, impeccably decorated, and the views unreal. Without asking, we were given an upgraded room as we were the only guests-- one of the many ways in which Woodi went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. We felt... More

A stunning character home with amazing views over the water. Woodi and Johnny were very hospitable hosts. A fun time at their luxury B & B, lots of stories and laughs over evening drinks and a beautiful breakfast. Highly recommended, would love to stay again one day.

Beautiful old house kept in incredible condition and filled with warmth and love. Woodi and Johnny are the perfect hosts - funny, friendly, lots of good stories, and lots of helpful travel advice. Beautiful rooms with million-dollar views. Would go back in heartbeat.

Had the best time at Wakefield Quay House. We stayed here on our way to Kaiteriteri. Woodi and Johnny are lovely people and Woodi went out of her way to accommodate us and make sure everything was just right. We really enjoyed our drinks with her at night and highly recommend a restaurant she booked for us, The Boat house... More

This was a totally wonderful experience: Woodi is an over-the-top hostess. The house is lovely, welcoming and relaxed with great views over the harbour. Our room was spacious, with a super-comfortable bed, and Woodi's breakfasts are amazing, in presentation, style and taste. If you are lucky enough to find a room available at this B&B, BOOK IT IMMEDIATELY before your... More

Woodi is a fantastic hostess along with her guest house. There was nothing she couldn't help with. Very knowledgeable of the area and restaurants. Supplied us with a full day car trip which was brilliant. Have to mention the view was stunning from our room and 'loo'!! The 'happy hour' at 6pm is not to be missed. A chance to... More

We stayed for just a couple of nights here recently and can only say this is a fantastic place to stop. Woodi and Johnny are tremendous hosts and a lot of fun. Our room was excellent with a balcony and stunning view over to Haulashore Island. The breakfasts were exceptional quality, thanks Woodi. The evening drinks, nibbles and conversation were... More

Our stay at Wakefield Quay House has proven to be the highlight of our lengthy holiday trip in New Zealand. The house itself is charming. It boasts marvelous character, comfortable rooms, and creative artifacts. The views are stunning. The best feature of the home is the opportunity to spend time with Woodi and Johnny.
