This trip to New Zealand was a gift for my mother's 70th birthday. Our visit in Nelson was towards the end of our trip. I have to say that my mother and I immediately felt at home - contributed mostly by the Wakefield Quay House hosts (Woodi and Johnny) with their great dynamic personalities and style.
If you are a traveller who needs more direction with things to do or one who is adventurous on your own - both Woodi and Johnny are very adverse in the arts, water activities, restaurants, tours, etc.
Both Woodi and Johnny welcome you into their place and make you feel at home. The Wakefield Quay House rooms have great views and the property has many decks for which to view the boats or kayakers and simply enjoy a nice glass of wine with some snacks Woodi seems to manage to always throw together and enjoy the weather and views.
It is obvious the passion both Woodi and Johnny have for Nelson and the lifestyle there - so if you do not stop here for at least one night - you will be missing out!
