I had the most wonderful time at Cat´s Pjamas! Lis is an excellent host with inside knowledge of the area and best advise on what to do and where to go. All her recommendations were perfect! Try the vegetarian pizza at the restaurant "Penguin Cafe" in Pohara, Golden Bay. Yummy! The house, set in a wonderful garden off the main...

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...

What a great place to stay! We enjoyed the spacious room, the bed, the bathroom, but most of all the great hospitality of Lis and her wonderful organic breakfasts. The location is ideal for visiting Abel Tasman and Lis gave us great suggestions for various activities and dining (The Jelly Fish In Mapua is the best). If we ever visit...

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a comment about your stay! We very much enjoyed hosting you both. Just one comment - we're not in Golden Bay even though we would love to be and send everyone there if they have the time to see it. We're about an hours drive from Golden Bay. Kind regards, Lis

Hi Kristina, Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us. Glad you enjoyed your time here. I enjoyed your visit! One correction - we are on the Waimea estuary - it's ocean - not a river :-) It's still lovely and warm - perhaps hot by UK standards ha-ha. Kind regards, Lis

The Cat’s P’jamas is a real treasure. From first sight we fell in love with the gardens and the B&B’s situation. Welcomed warmly by Lis, our hostess, we immediately felt at home in every sense. Our room was spacious and the ensuite left nothing to be desired. Fred would have been most pleased. The attention to detail and good taste...
