The Honey House is spacious, sunny, self–contained and creatively decorated. It is divided into two – the Nectary Bed & Breakfast and the Lodge. Both have original art and creative design in a tranquil rural setting – only 10 minutes from Nelson City Centre and set amongst 50+ acres of beautiful countryside.
We are in the heart of the Top–of–the–South region – centrally located close to Nelson City, between the Marlborough Sounds & Motueka, Abel Tasman & Golden Bay – beautiful beaches, adventure tours, vineyards, restaurants, galleries, and the city at your doorstep.
The 21 hectare property is owned by Christine and the Honey House is managed by her daughter, Jezebel. The focus is on restoration of the native forest and includes an apiary run by Jezebel. A small flock of Romney sheep roam the hills and the organic orchards and gardens grow a cornucopia of fruits, nuts and vegetables. Between us we have travelled extensively around the world and are now welcoming the world to us. Our family has a 20 year history of hosting overseas visitors as workers with an organic farming programme and we love meeting new people & sharing this idyllic lifestyle.
