What a lovely B&B! Tasman Bay is hidden away, absolutely stunning! Even our driver for our kayaking trip commented he hadn't been there before and what a fantastic place it looked. Really nice to stay with such an informative and friendly (but not intrusive) couple. Immaculate rooms, yummy breakfast (and brownies!). Would definitely recommend.

Pauline and John were great hosts and have a lovely home by the sea. It is especially beautiful at high tide when the water comes in. All of us were impressed by the cleanliness and thoroughly enjoyed Pauline's delicious homemade bread, muffins, cookies and brownies. They helped us out with things to do in the area and we ended up...

What can I say that hasn't been said already? If they treat all their visitors as well as they made us instantly feel part of their fantastic home, Pauline and John must have one of the fastest growing families in New Zealand! This really is a home from home. In our two days and nights at Tasman Bay we honestly...

This is the best B&B I have ever stayed at. What a wonderful welcome, plus Pauline and John could not have been more helpful in assisting me with my plans. They helped organise a trip to Abel Tasman and were so accommodating. They also gave me some top tips of other things to see in the area. 100% first class...

We have never rated any hotel, hostel, gite or B & B as highly as we rate Pauline and John's B & B. Their welcome was all-embracing, their care that we fed well, (well, too well) was impressive, especially that much was lovingly home-made. Our hosts were never obtrusive, yet always just there. They thought what we might need and...

A HUGE thank you for the kind and generous review you posted on Trip Advisor for us!! We were overwhelmed at the comments and very very grateful to you.

This review is long overdue, but we had such a nice stay in John and Pauline’s home last November, 2012, that I feel compelled to write. The B & B is in a pretty setting, right on the water, with a view that is beautiful and serene--and the facility is modern and first-rate, with good privacy. John and Pauline are...

Pauline and John have created a wonderful home with purpose-build B and B accomodation, which is faultless.

Last month my girlfriend and I stayed in Pauline and John's outstanding Tasman Bay Bed & Breakfast for two nights.
