We stayed in the separate cottage in the garden for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage accommodation had everything there so we could be self sufficient. The views were great of the bay and Motueka in the distance. Jim and Sue were both very helpful and friendly - even offering us some fresh vegetables from their garden....

Jim & Sue (and their B&B) were the perfect first stop for our inaugural visit to New Zealand-every aspect of our stay there was perfection. Cozy and comfortable room (with views of the local hills), incredible breakfast, magnificent location-all were perfect. But the icing on the cake was Jim and Sue-they were the quintessential B&B hosts and attended to our...

Definitely the nicest b&b I staid in during my holiday in NZ. I had the cottage and this was absolutely fantastic. The cotage was clean, cozy, a bit old fashioned but well maintained and had all you need for a short stay (washing machine available in the cottage). The view of the place is stunning; you see the valley and...

This is a charming B&B set high up with beautiful views over the Abel Tasman Bay. The drive into the retreat is along a (serviceable) gravel road which really aids with the feeling of getting away from it all! Sue and Jim were charming hosts; nothing was too much trouble and the breakfast superb with a wide range of cereals,...

So where do I start? This place was a great end to day of exploring and swimming. It was a delight to come home to a super comfortable bed and an amazing bath. The room we stayed in was the downstairs bedroom with access to the gardens. It has a free-standing claw-foot bath that I soaked in every night after...

A very nice and friendly facility op a top location. The bungalow was on a green location, surrounded by a beautiful garden, overlooking the sea in the distance, with many birds around. The facility was very well equipped.

We stayed at Fraser Highlands when viiting Abel Tasman and Cape Farewell and It is in an ideal location for exploring this part of South Island. Jim and Sue made us very welcome and gave us an excelent breakfast. The en-suite room we had on the groud floor was very comfortable and appropriately secluded. The house itself has wonderful views...

We had never spent the festive period in the Southern Hemisphere so it was important to us that we found a good place to stay especially as we have two young daughters who love Christmas at home! On the strength of the good reviews on here we decided to take the plunge and book four nights at Fraser Highlands. We...
