With it's phenomenal views straight down Queen Charlotte Sound and it's proximity to the start of the Queen Charlotte Track, Tirimoana House could hardly be bettered. Keith and Delwyn were the perfect hosts, welcoming, friendly and informative (not forgetting the terrific breakfast). Accessed via the scenic wonders of the Queen Charlotte Drive, whether approached from Picton or Havelock, Tirimoana House is an idyllic base for exploration or just 'loafing'. Iain Woods and Sherri Dewsbery.

My wife and I stayed at Tirimoana House after the 2020 New Year and we had an extremely enjoyable experience. We had younger family members staying at the campground across the bay and it was great to have everybody close. We went swimming in the sound and in the Tirimoana House pool, hiking on the Queen Charlotte Track (walking distance), dinners at the local pub (can't remember the name but really very good), evening drinks on the Tirimoana House deck overlooking the Queen Charlotte Sound - what else could you ask for? The owners are really nice, friendly and helpful, but not intrusively so. Breakfast is provided and is excellent, but dinner is on your own and the pub is about 10 minutes away. Being a typical Kiwi place, the owners are doing construction to upgrade the rooms (small bathrooms). It is lovely right now, but will be even better when the upgrade is complete. Note that the construction work is well out of the way and is not a distraction at all. You will be too busy looking at the incredible views !

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Tirimoana B&B. The house is very well situated with a beautiful view down the Queen Charlotte Sound. Our bedroom was very pretty,comfortable and well equipped with a lovely balcony overlooking the view. We enjoyed the pool and walking in the area as well as a visit to the vineyards of Marlborough, a short drive away. What makes Tirimoana particularly special is the warm welcome extended to guests by Dell and Keith. They really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. We all had evening drinks with them and their other guests ( from Germany, Canada and Finland) on their verandah and they made excellent recommendations about the highlights of the local area. The breakfast was delicious with special shout-out for Dell’s homemade granola and Keith’s excellent scrambled eggs. We appreciated Dell’s recommendation of a restaurant one evening and then enjoyed a platter she prepared for us on the second evening on our balcony looking over the tree ferns out to the water. I really recommend a stay here- 2 to 3 nights at least, leaving more to look forward to for a future date.

The ‘old fashion’ key we received from our hosts Del & Keith unlocked not just great accommodation with a view, but the most hospitable people’s hart. You feel most welcomed in their own private living area; relaxed atmosphere helps you to organise your stay; their attention to details makes your stay more enjoyable. During the ascent on the flight back to Wellington, we saw Anakiwa. Thinking “We have been there” gave us a smile. Pretty sure every time we see Malborough Sounds again, this feeling will come back.

The hosts at Tirimoana House, Delwyn and Keith were warm and gracious. The bedrooms were comfortable and had extraordinary views over Marlborough Sounds. It is a lovely house in a beautiful setting. Its proximity to the Queen Charlotte Track was a special bonus.
