About your host and the bed & breakfast villa

  • Woodi and Johnny Moore bought the run down old weatherboard villa at 385 Wakefield Quay in 1990 and spent many years restoring and updating the 1905 heritage building. They opened as a B&B in 2000 and have had a huge amount of fun with their guests from all over the globe.

  • English girl Woodi met a Kiwi sailor called Johnny in Greece in 1986 which is how she ended up in New Zealand so many years ago. Deep sea skipper Johnny has sadly passed away having loved the nautical life on the Quay.

  • Woodi loves to host guests and friends, she has been involved in the Nelson arts and wine scenes over the years and has excellent contacts around town. She can sort you out with personal introductions and recommendations to all the region has to offer.

  • Two rescued tabby cats, Peter and Pasty, live a sunbathing life at Wakefield Quay House.

  • Go to the Wakefield Quay House Facebook page for news and photos, you never know what you might find on there!

Mad as two hatters, generous as two billionaires, kind as two nuns – these two are one of a kind.
