It is also excellent located for visiting Nelson or going northwards and visiting Abel Tasman National Park or Kaiteriteri beach. Lis has a wealth of local...

A warm welcome from Lis who invited us in to her home. Freshly baked chocolate brownies ready on arrival. Beautifully appointed bedroom and en-suite bathroom, luxury toiletries and powerful shower. Lis couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome and pointed us in the right direction for an evening out at the Remu wine bar on the wharf in Mapua....

This B&B is very nicely situated on a hill, with views over the landscape and the bay. On arrival we met Lis her husband who gave us a lot of interesting information to start with. Later we met Lis and she gave us plenty more information about what could be done in the region. The place itself is very good....

How can we ever give 5 stars for a B&B after our stay in Cat's Pjamas? From the personal welcomsign to our last breakfast, Lis and Chris showed hospitality to perfection. Needless to say that Cat's Pjamas has all the amenities of a 5 star accommodation. But more important: the personal reception, the attention and the tourist advise where wonderful....
