My fiancee and I had the most wonderful time here. The location is absolutely spectacular, the owners are wonderful and go out of their way to make your stay a special one. Our only regret is that we couldn't spend more time there. It was also a special bonus to see the alpacas being fed!

We stayed with Joe & Kay for two nights towards the end of our two week honeymoon to New Zealand. They are absolutely wonderful hosts. Their property is set up specifically for guests, and each guest room has it's own private bathroom and porch overlooking the bay. They are very friendly, and always available for questions about Nelson, the grounds,...

Thank you so much for your review. We really enjoyed your stay with us and wish you many years of happiness. Nelson is an ideal place for a honeymoon, with our sunshine, beaches, wineries and art galleries. A Culinary Experience is an ideal place for celebrating each other,special events and life itself.

My friend and I took a very long journey from the East Coast of the U.S. to the South island of New Zealand. We were traveling for two weeks and our first destination was A Culinary Experience in Nelson. This amazing home would become the barometer of all of the other places we stayed. We stayed here for three nights...
