Woodi and Johnny are fantastic hosts. Woodi's decorating, attention to detail, excellent local knowledge and assistance to plan local shopping and excursions won't be beaten. We will always remember her delicious breakfasts, the afternoon happy hour on the deck with a view to die for and her wit and humour. And I haven't mentioned the fresh flowers that grace the...

Woodi and Johnny were very warm, friendly and welcoming hosts. They were generous with their company, their wine every evening. Not intrusive but very willing to help guide us around a great city, especially booking dinners are really cool restaurants. Must do boathouse and Hopgoods and walk to the centre of New Zealand :-) definitely recommend!

Woodi and Johnny are warm, friendly and helpful hosts in this lovingly restored turn of the century house-by-the-sea. We stayed in the Crows Nest room, which has a lovely balcony/porch with stunning sea views. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom spacious. You can see careful attention to detail everywhere -- for example, the makeup mirror in the bathroom... More

We had the most amazing Queens Birthday weekend at Wakefield Quay House. We couldn't fault either the beautiful accommodation or the wonderful hosts. Everything was fabulous - our beautiful room, beautiful breakfasts and extremely helpful advice about what to do while in Nelson. The situation of this beautiful villa would have to be the best in Nelson. We can't wait... More

We went for our 15th Wedding Anny weekend & stayed in the Lighthouse Room. The house is an amazing old character villa, the room was decked out appropriately and felt like you had stepped back in time.

We stayed in the beautiful Wakefield Quay for 3 nights. Our room was fabulous with a great view of the harbor. We had a lovely settee and my husband was enthralled watching the comings and goings of the ships. Wifi was included and was fast.

This lovely 1905 historic villa has a contemporary interior mixed with antiques and original New Zealand artworks. Queen seaview ensuite rooms, big fluffy towels, flat screen TVs, ipods and docks, and free wi-fi. Superb panoramic sea to mountain views across Tasman Bay and the Nelson Lighthouse, including great sunset vistas. You can swim in the ocean right out front and stroll along the waterfront to The Boat Shed Cafe and Harbour Light Bistro.
