There is a saying: There is no greater pleasure than to suprise a guest by giving him more than he would expect. Cat's Pjamas seems to take care of their guest in exactly this way. Luckily this was our longest stay in NZ for five very enjoyable days. We never felt more welcomed and catered for. My own highligt was...

Hi Steffen, Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review. I always enjoy having guests stay longer such as yourselves - get to know you a little and gives you an opportunity to explore our wonderful region more.

I spent almost three months in New Zealand, and my stay at Cat's Pjamas was, without a doubt, one of best experiences I had on my trip. I chose Cat's Pjamas, in part, because I'm an Ironman triathlete and was using my NZ trip both for sightseeing and for training. Chris is also a triathlete, and I could tell from...

Thanks for writing such a long and interesting epistle Amanda! I'm sitting here thinking you're raising expectations fairly high for my next visitors :-) Hope I can live up to it! I will agree with you this is an amazing part of the country for any form of outdoor enjoyment - and training is pure joy. Warm regards, Lis

My husband and I stayed for two nights in Fred's room - the larger of the two rooms available at Cat's Pjamas. The bedroom is spacious with a large en suite bathroom and a small lounge adjoining. Both Fred's Room and the smaller Max's Room open from a shared foyer containing tea and coffee-making facilities and brochures relating to the...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review :-) And my apologies for not asking about specific food preferences beforehand! Just one correction - there is in fact a hair dryer in the bathroom - it's in the vanity cupboard. You just weren't inquisitive enough! Delighted you enjoyed your stay - I very much enjoyed our...

Lis takes a lot of time to help orient the traveler to the surrounding area. This was not simply limited to the time of my stay; she was also very receptive to answering questions prior to my arrival and provided several really good suggestions of things to see and do not only in the area of her B&B, but also...

Hi Rodney - I'm delighted you enjoyed the South Island so much - and particularly our region of course which has endless opportunities for outdoor fun. It was a pleasure hosting you! Kind regards, Lis

Wonderful place to stay. Serene setting, great room, scrumptious breakfast and treats, lovely and gracious host. Pretty location outside of town. Consider yourself lucky if you can get a booking here.

Can't say enough how good my 4 night stay with Lis & Chris was. Have been recommending it to anyone who will listen. Definitely would stay with them again. Breakfasts on the deck with the view across to Rabbit Island were a favourite start to the day. Room was large with plenty of storage, powerpoints for charging all those electronic...

Stayed for 4 wonderful nights at this beautiful location. A very comfy room. Scrumptious breakfast on the patio with wonderful views of the bay below. Super friendly and helpful hosts. The little treats left waiting our return was a nice touch. Many thanks Lis and Chris for a memorable 4 days. Ara and Colin
