One of the best places we stayed throughout our large tour of New Zealand! Gill is a lovely host making you feel both welcome, but not "watched" throughout your stay. She has really thought about how she would like to run the perfect B&B and set herself apart - origami toilet paper (yes really!), turning down our rooms when we went out, fluffy towels, in room treats, a bedtime Maori story, and a bespoke travel guide for our next long drive down the West Coast with her tips on where to go. Oh, and her breakfasts were divine!
The setting of the property is stunning with great views from the balcony and whilst eating breakfast.
The location is about a 5 minute drive from Mapua Wharf with some lovely restaurants and amazing fish and chips! A slight warning - if you are a couple that both like a drink with dinner, you will need to drive to get to the restaurants. However, Gill was very accommodating and let us have our fish and chips back at the house with a lovely bottle of wine after we'd enjoyed a beer at the local brewery. It is about a 45 minute drive to the start of the Abel Tasman National Park for kayaking etc.
I only wish we'd stayed longer to enjoy the pool and visit Golden Bay.
