The spa pool was brilliant, set down the hill from the main residence it had views to die for. Our host Candace was awesome. Friendly, informative...

Arrived after getting off Picton ferry, lunching in Blenheim and making our way to Nelson.Far up on the hill where the air is fresh and the view endless is the B&B run by Candace and family. Such a nice young family with sunny outlooks. It is a bit of a drive up there from the town but so worth it....

High on a hill overlooking the bay this property has a commanding view. There is also a secluded Jacuzzi spa pavilion just a few steps down that also has this view. The room was nicely appointed with king bed and aircon, which was appreciated on the very warm days we were there. The property is only 10min from town but...

Stayed for three days over Easter didn't quite know what to expect except a great view. It certainly has that. To go with the view or room was modern and comfortable with a king bed and modern ensuite. It seems a bit out of NELSON but it is only 10 mins so easy to get too local attractions. Enjoyed relaxing...

Such a relaxing stay with amazing views over looking the stunning Nelson region. Not to mention the breakfast with some delicious home made muffins cooked that morning. Icing on the cake was that Spa, watching the sunset go down over the ranges. Thank you for your hospitality and making our Anniversary magical.

Absolutely amazing place. Can not speak highly enough of the location. The owners made us feel so welcome and were invaluable to the day. Would rate 100 stars if possible. Recommended to all. The view is to die for.
