“Lovely B&B with estuary views”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Another brilliant location during our month-long sojourn in NZ; Gill and Ian looked after us very nicely in their beautiful, elegant home and couldn't do enough for us during our 3 days with them.
They're well-placed to visit the Abel Tasman National Park and Nelson, with the small town of Mapua just down the road with one or two good restaurants, and a couple of vineyards to visit nearby.

We had a wonderful time at Kimeret Place, with very very welcoming host and a very confortable and cute cottage.
The breakfast was amazing, so was the view and we really enjoyed all the little attentions.
In 3 weeks travel around New Zealand, this was the best place we encountered.

What a wonderful place to stay. A peaceful location with stunning views. We really enjoyed the quiet ambience of our suite (Edwin) and the way it flowed out on to the deck with views across the bay. Our hostess Gill was warm, friendly and informative. We can thoroughly recommend Kimeret as relaxing, luxurious accommodation which provided for all our needs.

we have recently toured NZ and Jill's lodgings were, in our view, the best we had. the location and view are good, the breakfast good, the room excellent(we were in Alexander) and the little extras(chocolates, eats, stories, etc.) just capped a perfect stay. Jill also gave guidance on activities and provided a booking service for the sea shuttle.

We have just returned from a four week tour of New Zealand and we have to say that KImeret Place was simply the best B&B we stayed in during our travels. It was a haven of luxury and tranquility - a great base to explore the wonderful Abel Tasman area. Having Gill as a hostess was like having your own fairy godmother who made all your wishes come true and then gave you more! Our room was beautiful with outstanding views over the estuary, a spacious outside sitting area and a walk-in wardrobe/dressing area.The towels were fluffy and comforting and it was so lovely to soak in the deep bath after walking and kayaking in Abel Tasman. There was everything you could possibly need provided in the room and more besides - candles, CD player with a selection of romantic music, trays of cake and fruit in the afternoon and a turndown service with chocolates and a maori legend. The breakfasts were delicious, offering a wide variety of cooked options and preserves and one morning it was served on the terrace which made it extra special. Gill and Ian are dedicated hosts who really want to ensure that you get the most out of your visit. They were really helpful in getting us organised with trips and restaurants which took all the stress out of our stay and enabled us to have several great experiences in a very short time. We really enjoyed our three night stay at Kimeret Place and recommend it wholeheartedly. It is such a wonderful place and there is so much to do, we have to warn you that you will always want to stay longer!

We stayed here on our honeymoon back in February. The property was fantastic with great views of the landscape. Our hosts, Gill and Ian had great insight and recommendations of the surrounding area which made deciding what to do pretty easy. We had a wonderful breakfast out on the deck before heading out to Abel Tasmen for the day. Upon returning our room was turned down with goodies and such to help us relax before the next days adventures. It couldn't have been a nicer stay.
