We loved staying here. It felt like being at home with family. Delicious homemade breakfast and awesome pool!! B&B was clean and comfortable. Hosts were knowledgeable and knew all the best spots to go in the surrounding areas. We wished we had stayed longer! X Kate and Sam

Just stayed at the captain's rose for 3 nights. The hosts were lovely. The rooms were clean, comfortable and very well appointed. Evelyn made lovely fresh fruit breakfast, with home made bread and preserves, which showed off the best of motueka's fruit growing industry.

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay for two nights in the Captain's Rose B&B in March 2013. It's a perfect spot to visit the Abel Tasman NP. Evelyn and Nick did everything to make us feel very welcome; they were perfect hosts. The place is really beautiful and very clean and tidy. The breakfast is terrific!
