Overview

About The Boot Bed’n’Breakfast

A giant boot that couples can sleep in

When Steve and partner Judy first created The Boot in 2001 they were considered slightly crazy, but after several years history of happy visitors they are rightly taking their place as local celebrities and contributing to the tapestry of attractions and folklore of this inspiring region.

Creating a giant boot guesthouse on a 6 acre property is perhaps the genius of an eccentric, and rather than convert an existing building, Steve Richards designed The Boot from scratch.

With curved walls and ceilings, everything had to be custom fitted into carefully planned spaces. The result is an unusual, romantic hideaway - in the shape of a giant 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.

This is a unique place and the attention to detail is fabulous. It was very comfortable and the hospitality was generous. There were, however, lots of mosquitos and no window screens. At these prices, I would recommend going in fall or winter when the fireplaces would be a welcome addition to the cozy atmosphere and there would not be mosquitos.
