We stayed with Bebe & Buzz only one night but we wished we could stay a week! The house is fabulous, the vistas are breathtaking. Very welcoming and caring hosts. Breakfast on the terrace is 5 star! We will come back!!! Thanks! Dimiter & Jens

Our stay with Buzz and Bebe was extended to three nights--in no small measure thanks to their wonderful hospitality. We were there in late February and began our experience by receiving truly helpful information from them about making the most of our journey to Nelson. Arriving after a very long day of driving, we were greeted with a lovely glass of chilled wine which we enjoyed on their beautiful upstairs deck--setting the stage for a wonderful visit to the area.
The home is lovely, tastefully modern, and absolutely immaculate. The guestrooms are private, quiet, comfortable with many small touches designed to make the visitor feel pampered and at home. Baths are exceptional--spacious, state of the art and appear brand new. And a small refrigerator in the guest sitting area was much appreciated during the warm weather. An exterior entry door for our room also came in very handy when our schedules did not mesh, and Buzz and Bebe were very accommodating about this.
Their recommendation of a combination boat/hiking trip to Abel Tasman was spot on and we had a fabulous day--staring with Bebe rising extra early to prepare a delicious breakfast for us. During our entire stay they made wonderful recommendations for dining out, shopping, and activities which ALL turned out to be exactly as described--including one of the best meals we had during our three week holiday. The location is 5 minutes by car from Nelson's city center--ideal for being able to enjoy the amenities there without worrying about street noise. Nights were blissfully quiet. A first rate experience and an example of why B and B travel can be so much fun! Buzz and Bebe truly made us feel welcome and at home.

Thank you so much for all your wonderful words. We just love the fact that you enjoyed your stay here in the Nelson region and we were able to make this a memorable experience. We do love this area of New Zealand and are really happy when our guests see all it's beauty, especially as we have had such a stunning summer. Once again thank you.

Spent 1 night in this elegant and tasteful B&B- distinguished contemporary architecture.
Breathtaking views from the upper morning deck, not so much from the rooms, as the roof of a neighbour´s house is disturbing a bit.
Rooms are great with state-of-the-art- furniture and -bathroom. But being atheists we dislike religous icons in hotel-rooms- and unfortunately there was a big Jesus- picture in our room. But that´s another story............
There is just one more thing, Bebe and Buzz, the english hosts, should reflect on::
No idea why. but guests don´t get keys for the house. And they are asked to be back from dinner at 11:00 p.m. at the latest. Well, Nelson is not famous for being the night life world capital, but "regulations" like this could have matched youth hostels in the seventies, but not a recommendable B&B in Nelson.

Thank you so much for your comments and the review. For all those people who are interested we do have front door keys available on request and as we are always up until our guests arrive home these are rarely asked for. I know our guests who stayed here over New Years Eve where happy to have the key as they enjoyed an early morning arrival back to bed! Thank you again for taking the time to review us. We value all the comments.

I'm painfully delayed in posting this review--we had the pleasure of staying at Buzz and Bebe's lovely home in December during an 18 day adventure covering both islands. Our original plan only afforded one night in Nelson, but a happy scheduling accident allowed us to stay two relaxing nights at B&B's Place. We arrived around 8PM after a painfully long day of traveling, and couldn't have been more thrilled that every picture posted of their lovely home was spot on. As we were traveling with another couple, we were able to enjoy both of the lovely bedrooms and have the downstairs living area all to ourselves. The accomodations were terrific--wonderfully appointed, comfortable rooms with terrific bathrooms and an amazing view! Bebe really out does herself on breakfast--there was no need for lunch either day!! Haha!! We loved visiting with them on their incredible upstairs patio and enjoying a crisp glass of wine and delightful conversation. Their tips for the remainder of our trip couldn't have been more helpful.

Above and beyond the great accomodations and service, Buzz and Bebe both made us feel as though we were family rather than just guests in their home. While my husband and I argue over what was our favorite city on the South Island was, Buzz and Bebe definitely helped mak Nelson my favorite spot!!

Bebe and Buzz what wonderful hosts you are! Your home is amazing, very comfortable beds, decorated exquisitely and fantastic views over Nelson. Breakfast was the yummiest ever and our every need was catered for. We would much rather stay with you than in a hotel any day. You made our few days in Nelson an absolute delight. Thanks for the suggestion on kyaking Abel Tasman it was breathtaking. Buzz and Bebe even dropped us off and picked us up from a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner so we could enjoy a few wines. Five star quality and five star people. We loved staying with you and will do so again when back in Nelson. Thank you so much Simone and Laith

Room Tip: You can't go past Buzz and Bebe's place it is the best of the best!

A wonderful start to our two week vacation on the South Island! Bebe welcomed us with a generous glass of wine on the big patio with an amazing view of Nelson in front of us. She helped us figure out our plans for the 3 days we had in Nelson, gave us recommendations and made reservations for our dinner the first night.

The rooms are a good size, with nice bathrooms, comfy beds, and the adjoining lounge and outside area have nice views. The house itself is really impressive, showing great attention to detail throughout.

We had two great hot breakfasts and the cold breakfast we had on an early start day was plenty to fill us up as well. Of course, tea and cookies in the room, milk and water in the lounge fridge.

Buzz and/or Bebe were always around and available to offer suggestions in the mornings and when we would get back. And their recommendations were spot-on. Lovely and interesting couple.
