Beautiful place! Wonderful reception & a big thank you to Sarah. She’s so thoughtful and accommodating. We had an amazing time here and wished we could have stayed a little longer. Hope to be back soon in the near future.

Sarah, thanks for your wonderful hospitality. Pihopa brings me such joy. The grounds are truly beautiful and provide such inspiration. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at Pihopa and my time in Nelson.
The Eaton Suite provided such respite. I feel at peace leaving here, you thought of every detail. Thanks again.
Thanks Sarah & staff for a wonderful stay. We loved everything about our time here at Pihopa Retreat. There were so many great extras that we weren’t expecting. If I come back to Nelson, I am definitely staying here.

What a very special spot in the world you have created. It is just what we needed to rest and recover from our epic journey. We so looked forward to our time with Eve in the evenings before going to dinner. Everything about the cottage is perfection. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Sarah was an amazing hostess. The place is wonderful with incredible attention to detail but the thoughtfulness of incredible hospitality and being like family. One of the nicest places we have ever stayed and can’t wait to not only come back but also stay friends with Sarah and her family.

…Everything you do has helped make our wedding perfect. The venue is, in my opinion, unbeatable. The chapel is divine, the gardens are the perfect backdrop and the reception area!… To be able to have the whole event in one luxurious package! We can’t thank you enough. Sarah and your team made our wedding perfect.

We had an amazing time … we’ve been struggling to come up with anything that we could suggest to have made our stay better. Thanks.

Thank you Sarah for your amazing hospitality. We couldn’t have asked for a more memorable stay and start to our trip exploring this gorgeous region. It was a shame we couldn’t fully appreciate the garden – but what great work. It’s going to look absolutely stunning when done and in full bloom. We look forward to returning in the future! All the best!!

A hidden gem close to central Nelson where we stayed for 2 nights. Pihopa is a quiet secluded haven yet with a view of the bay. We loved our suite which was furnished to the highest standard with great attention to detail and it even had a gas fire which made it so cosy. Home from home! Sarah was a wonderful host who made sure we had everything we needed. We wish we had stayed longer.
