We stayed with Sandra and Bruce for one night during a 5 day ride along the Great Taste Trail. The only disappointment was that it was only one night.
Sandra and Bruce put on an amazing spread for dinner (extra cost) with more food than we could possibly eat and sat up with us through the evening while we chatted about nothing and everything.
The house and surroundings are beautiful. The rooms are really well made up and there is no lack of privacy. We hadn't even left before we were making plans for a return trip.
Thanks Bruce and Sandra - it was wonderful to meet you!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- ARRIVE A STRANGER AND LEAVE AS A FRIEND. We offer a home away from home in Wakefield, a half hour drive from Nelson City. It is well situated for those who are travelling either north or south and those who want to explore the Nelson region. On arrival you enter a large courtyard with access to a pottery and wood workshop where Bruce will demonstrate how to make a pot on the wheel. Where else can you be offered a chance to make your own pot? My husband and I offer select Boutique accommodation and rent out two rooms in our own home. The house is in a secluded bush setting with an abundance of native birds. As we are locals, we deal with our guests directly giving valuable information of the region, and have escorted guests on boat trips to the Abel Tasman National Park. The rooms are: the Beech (king with private en-suite), which has access onto large wooden deck where guests can sit and relax and watch the native Wood Pigeon's and Tui's come down to bathe in the water bowl and the Totara room (queen-double with shared bathroom (bath only)). Both are named after the trees seen from each room. Although we are a 30 minute drive south of Nelson it is well worth the stay in our idyllic situation. Come and join Bruce and I in our piece of paradise. e. ... more less
