Susie and Martin were great hosts and welcomed us into their adorable piece of heaven. Spectacular view up the sound. Sipping wine and gazing at stars plus the four moons around Jupiter with the telescope and seeing the Southern cross for the first time. We only had time for one night but hope to be back some day.

This was a wonderful discovery during our first trip to New Zealand! From the moment we arrived to the lodge the owners, Susie and Martin, made us feel welcome like good old friends, and that's how we felt during our (too short) stay there. They only have 4 guestrooms but apart from being all very comfortable, they all have a...

This is a special B and B with Hosts Susie and Martin providing fun and warmth and going out of their way to make sure their guests have a great stay. The view is probably the best view of the Okiwa Bay in Queen Charlottes Sound. The place is very tranquil and quiet. The first night we were there we...

I dont know what is better the view or Susie and Martin, we felt so welcomed from the moment we arrived. They have thought of all the comforts and necessities to make your stay flawless.

What a perfect location. Looking over the bay to Queen Charlotte Sound. The sunrise is amazing. The hosts are gracious and do everything for your comfort and enjoyment. Whatever else you do in New Zealand spend at least one night here and preferably more.

We were two couples traveling together and had booked two rooms for two nights at Okiwa Bay; one standard room and the honeymoon suite. We stopped in Nelson on the way as we didn’t have time to make it to Okiwa Bay in time for dinner, although Susie had emailed us earlier and offered to prepare us dinner if we...
