Our accommodation was arranged for us by the hosts whose party we were attending. From Marlborough Sounds and Wellington, four of us had no prior knowledge of this beautiful B&B so it was a pleasant surprise to arrive at such a peaceful and charming house. Set in secluded park-like surroundings just off the main road, there is no traffic noise and the bedrooms are very comfortable. Lis is a great host and loads of fun- very generous, giving us 2 big bags of ripe plums off her large trees to take home. We all enjoyed her breakfast - delicious stewed plums on french toast after homemade berger muesli. We were intrigued by all the references to cats - some very amusing - all around the house and the resident "Tia", an old fluffy Persian redhead was a great character. I would recommend anyone to stay here. Only 5 minutes from Mapua( a town everyone must see - it's gorgeous) and pretty much middle of the Nelson region. Thanks to Hugo who booked it for us.
