A Little Gem outside Nelson We arrived at this quiet hillside retreat to be greeted by Timmo, one of the owners. He was genuinely interested in chatting to us and went on to explain that there was a fully equipped large kitchen for us to use as well as a gorgeous sitting area outside with views over the rolling landscape and Tasman Bay. The house is pretty with well appointed bedrooms. Each is painted in a pale soft grey with wooden floors and pretty rugs. Our room had a balcony with a table and chairs to enjoy the sunshine and looked out into a paddock with chickens and sheep. The bathroom was as clean and fresh as the bedroom with plenty of hot water and a good shower. We drove back into Nelson ( 20 mins) for dinner in the Boatshed Cafe. A complete success. Fish and meat with happy attentive waiters! Two other tables of guests heard our UK accents and offered advice for the rest of our journey. Breakfast at Pear Orchard included home made granola, yogurt, homemade jams and delicious sourdough bread. A cafetière of coffee and homemade pear juice rounded off a delightful meal. We were sorry not to be staying for longer.

Excellent base for a family trip We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at The Pear Orchard Lodge. Unless you need to be in Nelson city, staying in the Richmond/Hope district is much better for access to the Abel Tasman park, wineries and other nearby towns. Timo and Olivia have crafted an excellent little lodge set-up here, a very relaxing place as others have said, surrounded by regenerating bush. Breakfast on the porch under passionfruit vines was a daily highlight. On quiet occasions when we weren't off in Mapua or the Abel Tasman, our daughter loved hanging out with the chickens or walking around the pear trees. All up, an ideal holiday base.

Great place, relaxing vibe I stayed here with a group of work colleagues for the best part of a week, and we were very impressed. Timo was a very welcoming and helpful host, and the setting and overall feel of the place is idyllic. I can honestly say this is by far the best place I've ever stayed in for work. Highly reccomend!

Great family holiday accommodation Really enjoyed our family stay at the Pear Orchard. As a large family group we booked out the main lodge, which was perfect. There was plenty of space and plenty of bathrooms for us all which made our stay comfortable. The setting is beautiful, the decor is clean, simple and stylish and the kitchen had everything we needed. Overall a great lodge for a large group of family or friends.

What a lovely spot! We were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves the night we stayed - Timo was welcoming and friendly, and then left us to enjoy our beautifully furnished bedroom and bathroom, plus the well set up kitchen/dining room complex, opening to the patio and lawn area. It’s all sparkling clean and very comfortable, and in a very good location with the orchard/rural setting making for a relaxed stay. Breakfast was absolutely delicious - that warm sourdough bread, the homemade yoghurt and of course the stewed pears from the orchard were such a treat! Highly recommended.

Perfect spot for a family celebration! The Pear Orchard Lodge was the ideal place for our family getaway. Everything was just perfect - a beautiful outlook, peaceful surroundings, convenient location, and a lovely front lawn for the kids to play. The lodge was clean and beautifully presented, and the continental breakfast hamper with homemade and local goodies was delicious. We would definitely recommend The Pear Orchard and look forward to staying again one day! Many thanks.

Wheelchair Friendly I stayed for a few nights due to work being done at my home. I live life using a wheelchair & was blown away by how accomodating these guys are. I really enjoyed the professional yet relaxed & laid back culture there. Definitely want to return there in the future A+++

Hervorragende Unterkunft mitten in der Natur Top Unterkunft mit liebevoller Einrichtung und toller Ausstattung Das Beste ist wohl der tolle Ausblick, aber auch sonst mangelt es an nichts und die Ruhe ist großartig. Die Gastgeber backen sogar das Brot selbst! Absolut zu empfehlen

Family Wedding Stay The Pear Orchard Lodge was the perfect location, accommodation for our large extended family in Jan 2020. We took over the whole lodge and this was an excellent decision as we were able to treat it as our home for 3 nights. Excellent facilities, showers, living areas, gardens and wonderful hosts. Free range eggs were a plus and strongly recommd buying the pear juice - what a treat. Timo - lives close by and was willing to help in anyway. Would recommend to other large family groups whom want a special place to call home, Cheers David
