We stayed for three nights over Christmas and the Blue Moon was excellent. Jane was really helpful and friendly and the breakfasts were great too. Lovely big room, comfy bed, great outside space and table etc plus a ridiculously big bath and shower! Jane was really kind and thoughtful with little extra touches we weren't expecting which really made our stay.

The Blue Moon is very close to Abel Tasman National Park so an ideal spot for anyone visiting there and the surrounding area.

The blue Moon is just a bit different in all the right ways. A lovely large space to chill out - so much more than just a hotel room.

You could not wish for a more individual accommodation, lovingly designed with flair. The room is vast and the bathroom quite something! Climbing in and out of the sunken bath proved more hilarious than romantic for a couple of oldies. But what a fabulous place for a honeymoon. We'd just left it 40 years too late!

Jane provided lovely breakfasts and lots of local information. So glad I found it on the internet.

The Blue Moon B & B is rather special. We spent 2 nights there to experience the Motueka area, Abel Tasman Park, etc. Situated in a back road it's very quiet and peaceful with virtually no traffic noise and off-road parking.

The guest unit is completely independent and is attached to Kate (the owner)'s home with it's own garden space and rural outlook and has the use of a barbecue if desired.

The accommodation is very spacious with a lovely comfortable bed, separate lounge area and independent kitchenette facilities should you want to cater for yourself on one or more evenings. The bathroom is out of this world, with a lovely sunken bath, capable of use with candles. The whole place has clearly been designed by an artist and is very romantic!

Kate provides a very adequate Continental Breakfast in your room each evening with an interesting selection of breads, so you can take you time to eat it next morning when you can force yourself out of the lovely bed.

Perhaps our only regret was that we didn't stay longer.
