5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Gill thank you for a wonderful couple of days. We both found it difficult to drag ourselves away from your beautiful house and garden with the fantastic views and of course lots of lovely local wine. Service and hospitality, i can only say was 5 Star plus and can only wish that we lived there.
Gill thank you again and look forward to sipping the local wine with you again in the not too distant future.

Gill was an Amazing host,her beautiful house was opened up to us, and it would have been very easy to spend your entire time there instead of exploring the impressive coastline.a great base from which to explore the area.only 8 mins drive from Mapua,what else could one ask for.

We have just had the immense pleasure of being hosted by Gill this weekend. We were attending a family wedding in the area and happened upon this wonderful place on-line. From our first wonderful greeting we fell in love! The accommodation is wonderful - everything you could possibly need and more! Trays of gorgeous nibbles (including home-made brownies!), bathrobes, toiletries, fresh flowers and chocolates on your pillow all included! The environment is beautiful, wonderful views, gardens and bird life. Gill is a font of knowledge about the local area and was so welcoming and helpful. The breakfasts on the deck each morning were fabulous! We would strongly suggest if you are visiting the Nelson area, that you take the short and scenic trip and stay at Kimeret Place - we are sure you will love it as much as we did! Thanks Gill - the Ongley Family.

My stay at Kimeret Place was absolutely perfect. The room was beautiful, very comfortable, exceptionally clean and the bathroom magnificent. There were so many lovely touches:
chocolates on the bed at night, Maori stories, fresh cakes in the room, and so many different designs for the lavatory paper one hardly wanted to use it.Gill was a fund of information ensuring that one got the most of the visit and she was exceptionally kind to me with regard to the computer! The breakfasts were delicious and I have never seen such enormous croissants.It was lovely too to have the company of the beautiful Emma, Gills' Golden Retriever and I enjoyed our walk together.I wished I had been able to stay longer

Room Tip: Lovely view from all in the house.

Here is perhaps one of most wonderful of all the New Zealand B and Bs. The setting is idyllic, overlooking an inlet to the back of the house which offer spectacular morning and evening sunrises and sunsets. Gill is an attentive hostess and certainly willing to point out what is worthwhile seeing in the area (Kimeret Place is closer to Richmond, a pleasant small town, than it is to Nelson, about 20 minutes by car, which has the tourist attractions). We chose the two bedroom cottage as we were traveling with a friend and it was ideal, with a large comfortable living room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and excellent kitchen facilitiesl, a handy outdoor grill, and a nice hot tub available for star gazing late into the evening. If you are traveling in a group of three or four persons, this is spot for you!.

This boutique bed and breakfast was recommended by Audley Travel and I stayed there for a few days in early March 2012. There was a warm welcome from Gill, one of the proprietors, and she continued to be available to offer help and advice when needed. The food was excellent and the accommodation superb. The establishment is well situated with wonderful views of lakes and mountains. Highly recommended.
