Best hosts you'll find! They made us feel like VIP's and are so easy going and fun with lots of experience and knowledge. Wairepo House is BEAUTIFUL, we truly couldn't have been happier with our stay. My 3 sisters, Mother, makeup artist, hairdresser and photographer were all blown away by the setting and B&B facilities. There would have been no... More

Wairepo House is a stunningly beautiful B & B, located in sunny Nelson,on the South Island of New Zealand on acres of apple and fruit orchards. The owners, Richard and Joyanne treated us like friends in their home. Our spacious and comfy suite was sumptuously furnished and equipped, with bottles of wine and beer, snacks, beverages and luxurious toiletries. We... More

We had large rooms in a great setting. The owners and hosts, Richard and Joyanne, couldn't have been more helpful and informative. As this is a family in the apple growing/shipping business for generations - we spent hours getting educated (by choice) on apples and NZ. Fabulous breakfasts. Highly recommended!

This tranquil oasis was one of the highlights of our tour of the south island. The accommodation was very spacious and comfortable but the star was the garden which is simply amazing. Joyanne and Richard are fabulous hosts - lovely breakfasts and excellent advice on what to see and where to eat and charming company. One day after spending hours... More

The hosts, Joyanne and Richard, are great people. We had a busy schedule while staying here, but they made the time to have breakfast with us. The room was OK, the bathroom had its best time. We loved the gardens and the surrounding estate. The hosts did what they could to make us feel at home here.

Joyanne and Richard run a beautiful place and even though they were so busy during our stay, they always had time to spend chatting to us and making sure that we made the most of our visit. The room we stayed in was extremely spacious, well laid out and comfortable. We certainly slept very well. The gardens around the house... More

A lovely B & B with a great breakfast and nice owners, but over priced and limited eating facilites in Oct- the spring of New Zealand. Not worth the high cost of the stay.

This was our second visit to the Wairepo House. Joyanne and Richard are fabulous and warm hosts. Gorgeous grounds and accommodations along with the best breakfast in NZ. Have visited many B&B's in NZ and this is at the top of the list. Enjoy

Boutique Hotels can be hit and miss. You can find a great place with nightmare hosts, a terrible place with wonderful hosts and anyting inbetween. Wairepo House is therfoee truly a rareity and maybe even a one off because the setting, rooms, price, hosts, food, everything iscompletely first class and would put to shame a business class hotel.

We decided to come and stay at Wairepo House in November as part of our honeymoon trip around New Zealand. We stayed for 4 nights and where to begin.... Joyanne and Richard were lovely hosts. Whether pointing us towards the best sights in the area or suggesting restaurants, they were really helpful. Both have an excellent sense of humour and... More
