Stayed for 4 wonderful nights at this beautiful location. A very comfy room. Scrumptious breakfast on the patio with wonderful views of the bay below. Super friendly and helpful hosts. The little treats left waiting our return was a nice touch.
Many thanks Lis and Chris for a memorable 4 days.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. I know it can be a chore :-) Not to add to the chore too much, I would appreciate your comments on what improvements to the room would have earned us 5 stars. Kind regards, Lis

We had to cancel our NZ vacation at the end of 2012 due to my husband's heart surgery. Lis and I corresponded via email and so we became friends during that trying time. We finally got to meet a year later when we were able to rebook our 17 day vacation. We stayed at Cats Pjamas for three nights and enjoyed 3 wonderful gluten free breakfasts that Lis cooked especially for us. One morning we were able to share breakfast with a Dutch couple. Lis made a 60th birthday "pancake" with candle for the man who grinned from ear to ear with the special attention and singing of happy birthday. Lis was helpful with suggestions for our trip and for local sights. We took the Wilson ferry to Anchorage where we enjoyed some short walks and sitting on the beach. We also spent a day in Matueka and drove most of the way to Collingwood enjoying the sights and one in Nelson mostly to visit their Botanic and Chinese gardens. Cats Pjamas is welcoming, clean, spacious, and with new furnishings in a garden setting. We are world travelers who have stayed in Amazon huts and 5-star Caribbean resorts. If you are looking for a B&B, this one has good location, food, quiet, calm location.

Room Tip: We stayed in the smaller room, Max, I think it is called, as the other room was booked. Our room and...

Thanks Paul and Corrine for enveloping our home in your warmth and love of life and sense of humour....and I enjoyed the odd guitar riff coming out of your room. Safe travels and may you have many more successful gigs!

We stayed 3 nights with Lis in December 2012. Lis is taking hostmanship to a new dimensions. We never experienced such a personal, wonderfull and caring service with a special touch.
The organic breakfast is unforgetable.
Very well situated with beatutifull views over the Pacific and very conveniently situated close to Abel Tasman, Golden Bay and Neslon. A must for every travel savy tourist and businessman alike whom wishes to experience what service and facilities should mean. Highly recommended.
Hope to revist in the future.

I stayed with Lis and Chris for just one night but I'm very happy to say this is the best bed and breakfast I've stayed in. I was made to feel very comfortable and Lis went well out of her way to make me feel welcome. Truly went above and beyond what I would expect any B&B owner to do for her guests. This is an excellent place to stay and I will be pleased to go back some day. Delicious real food and super comfy bed. Marvelous.
