"Accent House Boutique Bed & Breakfast changed hands just before our visit and naturally the new owners, Donna and Terry were anxious that we should enjoy our four night stay. Any anxiety was completely unfounded. They were the most excellent of hosts, keen to ensure that our stay in their lovely new home met every expectation - and it did. The house, which is all on one ground floor level, is superbly designed, with guest accommodation carefully arranged with own access and lounge/sink/kitchen type area separate from the owners part of the house. The decor and furniture is high quality and the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. Our breakfasts were delicious with plenty of fruit and cooked fare. Both Donna and Terry were very considerate of our needs and made us feel very comfortable. Our bedroom had access to beautiful and extensive gardens, with seating and facilities for evening drinks. We can readily recommend Accent House as a high quality B&B."

"A lovely B&B where we have felt very comfortable and welcome. The house and gardens mirror the beautiful countryside. Thank you and wish you every success with your new venture. See you in 2 years."

"We were Terry and Donna's first guests. They made us very welcome. Accent House is a lovely home. We stayed in a spacious bedroom that looks out to a beautiful garden. The bed was very comfortable. Alfresco breakfast was great, plenty of fruit & cooked if you wished. It is a great location, not far from the Abel Tasman National Park. We would highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast. We met as strangers and left as friends."
