About this listing
The Boot is a retreat ideal for romantic weekends and special occasions. Our private boutique bed and breakfast accommodation is a two storey cottage in the shape of a giant boot, furnished especially for two. It is located in the heart of the beautiful Tasman region, centrally between the Able Tasman National Park, Kahurangi National Park and Nelson. A perfect position for exploring the highlights of Tasman Bay, Nelson, New Zealand.
The Boot stands nestled within a grove of hazelnut trees. Outside, the courtyard, surrounded by a fragrant garden, offers sun loungers for relaxing on hot afternoons and an alfresco dining area for spending lazy evenings beside the outdoor fireplace. Inside luxuriate on the comfy couch in front of the open fire, or enjoy an early night in the comfort of the upstairs bedroom. In the morning your choice of breakfast will be delivered to the door.
Our relaxed, quiet bed and breakfast adopts sustainable practices without deterring from the luxury experience that we want all our guests to enjoy. We use organic produce as much as possible, including our own free-range eggs and fresh fruit from the orchard. Guests are welcome to wander the paths of our 2.4 hectare garden during their stay.

Wow! This is a model for hospitality. What a wonderful place and what lovely hosts.
Steve and Judy ran this like a true B&B, with the added bonus of helping us with some needed ingredients for our self-grilled dinner. They went out of their way to make sure things were comfortable for us. The included breakfast was in their cute café, and it was delicious. To top things off, we got to explore their property which was full of curious wonders and even eel feedings!
The boot is so cute and the little touches like the interesting coffee table books, and the puzzle were so much fun!
I loved this place! It was so romantic with hearts everywhere, there is a gas grill and a small kitchen so you could cook a simple meal. Everything was so clean, and the bed was super comfortable. They left us two delicious chocolate cupcakes, and there was an honesty bar with full bottles of wine. I thought it was the perfect little house. My boyfriend did not like it as well and he was irritated by the lack of internet access because it is listed as an amenity. He did enjoy the lovely breakfast Steve cooked for us though.
Staying at the boot was an amazing experience! The place was clean, compact, comfortable and had everything we needed for a lovely and relaxing evening. We arrived off the back of a two day kayaking trip, slightly tired and sandy but it didn't phase Judy at all! Judy and Steve made sure that we were totally comfortable during our stay, and even offered us a salad to go with our BBQ that evening, which was such a lovely gesture! The cafe setting and grounds were also peaceful and beautiful, and a lot of love and attention obviously goes into the cafe as well as the boot! We had breakfast at the cafe the next morning and everything we ordered was delicious! Our stay was perfect and relaxing and we'd definitely recommend it to anyone!
Staying at The Boot was a purely magical experience - definitely worth going out of your way for. Be sure to load up on goodies from their delicious bakery café. We did and even wished we had bought more. And be sure to spend time exploring the whimsical grounds. Steve and Judy are passionate about their place and really excellent hosts. Thank you for a lovely stay!
THE BOOT!! Staying here was like stepping into a fairy tale. Super cozy and comfortable, the boot is wonderfully made up on the inside. Have a fire at night and enjoy the delicious breakfast in the morning. Don't forget to feed the eels!
