Sarah and Ian keep their lovely property in the perfect state - you'd think everything has just been redecorated throughout! You're in the perfect spot for Nelson and Abel Tasman NP so neither way takes too long; the rooms overlook a beautiful bay so you wouldn't even need to venture out... Should you need a kitchen try and get the...

How wonderful it was to drive up to this peaceful retreat overlooking the ever moving tidal bays near Tasman Bay! Sara and Ian are lovely hosts who welcomed us with good cheer and some fantastic breakfasts. Situated near wine country, this was a great place to rest after long days of driving and tasting. Their home is warm, welcoming and...

The accommodation here is fantastic. Everything was spotless and perfectly presented and the view from our balcony was superb. It was so tranquil sitting watching the tide come into the bay and watching all sorts of birdlife. We saw more birds here than anywhere else in NZ. Sarah and Ian are great hosts. Nothing was too much for them and...

This B&B is beautifully situated overlooking one of the many tidal bays connected to Tasman Bay--off the beaten track and extremely quiet. Rooms are clean, comfortable, modern. The hosts are engaged and helpful. They offered a number of suggestions, all of which made our time in the Mapua area extremely enjoyable.

One of our favorite retreats while visiting NZ. Our hosts Sara and Ian have thought of everything. They treat you like honored family members! The rooms are spacious, with all the modern amenities and very quiet in spite of having the whole B&B full. Peaceful views with beauty.

The room pretty much had everything in it including every tiny tools in the kitchen. It's one of the better places to stay in Bronte. Good peaceful location and ease of travel to both north and south of Nelson. It's good to pick up groceries from any store and use the kitchen in case one feels lack of options to...
