Accommodation – Stay in the Boot

We invite you to enjoy a fairytale experience of soleful  relaxation with your partner in the quiet luxury of The Boot.

In the heart of the Tasman region the Boot offers the ideal setting for unwinding from the hurley burley of life.

It is also ideally placed to explore all the bounty this area has to offer – beaches, mountains, Abel Tasman National Park, wineries, galleries, cafes, golf courses, the city of Nelson and quaint villages and towns.

The Boot is a fully equipped stand alone cottage. Downstairs in the lounge there is a comfy couch in front of the open fire. The kitchenette has tea and coffee making facilities and a mini bar. The tiled bathroom is equipped with toiletries, soft towels, hairdryer and a shower built for two.

Up the spiral staircase you’ll find the bedroom with a regal queen-sized bed, dark curtains for late morning rises, and a Juliet balcony with views into the courtyard and across the pond.

The courtyard itself is a sheltered outdoor space surrounded by a fragrant garden, ideal for soaking up the Tasman sunshine on sun loungers or enjoying long evenings of alfresco dining by the fire.

Fine Nelson Art, fresh flowers, candles, complementary chocolates, a stereo and no television complete the romantic scene.

Breakfast of your choice is delivered to your door any time before midday.

“Had an AMAZING experience staying in The Boot at The Jester House over the weekend. Steve and Judy are super generous hosts and savvy environmentalists. Twenty five years ago their community thought they were just another couple of hippies – today they are an established and well-loved community inspiration with landmark style; landmark grace and wit. They are living proof that having a long-view in business is intelligent, beautiful and financially rewarding. Thanks Steve and Judy – we are feeling super inspired.”                James O’Connell   May 2016
