If you like tranquil views and watching the tide going in and out from a peaceful patio then this is the place to be. Pauline and John have thought of everything a visitor to the beautiful Abel Tasman area could want - from leaflets and advice on where to go to spa baths to massage muscles tired from hiking the...

Yes, it's all been said and it's true, we stayed 2 nights. We spent our full day with MSK kayaking , doing the gourmet platter trip. The water taxis are amazing more like speed boats and great fun.

We took both of the B&B rooms for three nights. One bedroom for our daughters and one bedroom for us. Both rooms have their own terrific bathrooms. Pauline and John thought of everything when designing their B&B. All the rooms are well appointed, with high end fixtures. The showers and spa tubs are superior. The shared living room worked great...

We stayed at many lovely hotels and B&B's during our roadtrip through New Zealand, but no place could top Tasman Bay B&B. Our stay with Pauline and John in early November 2013 was absolutely amazing. They genuinely love running their B&B and make their guests feel at home from the moment they arrive. John helped us to figure out the...

Recently had a 2 night stay. Pauline & John were excellent hosts, both before I arrived and when I was there, recommending a good company for a kayak tour in the park. The room is well equipped and has a good pack of information of places to go and eat, really useful as a lone traveller. Views across the bay...

Pauline & John were helpful from my very first pre-stay enquiry about visiting Abel Tasman to the cheery goodbye & our route onwards to Marlborough wine region. We felt very much as though we were staying in their home but it didn't make us feel awkward. In a quiet & pretty location but with good access to the National park...

This was our first place to stay on the South Island, and what a fabulous way to start. Four weeks later, it was still our favorite. John and Pauline were so gracious and warm, there to help in any way they could. As a native of the West Coast, John gave us wonderful advice, and we planned our route accordingly....

John and Pauline were absolutely wonderful. The accommodations were very clean, modern, and spacious and location was ideal. We explored the area based on John and Pauline 's recommendations and we're never disappointed. Best place to stay in the area.

We had the best time staying with Pauline & John. They are the sweetest people and were amazing hosts. They both wanted us to have the very best experiences while there, and recommended the exact right things to do based on what we wanted to see, and the weather conditions. We had hoped to kayak, but there was a strong...
