About Your Hosts And Their Bed & Breakfast Villa

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

English girl Woodi and Kiwi sailor Johnny met in Paros in Greece in 1986 when Johnny was skippering charter yachts and Woodi was a regular summer visitor to the island – Woodi used to get summer jobs as either a DJ or cocktail waitress!

Deep sea skipper Johnny has sadly passed away having been diagnosed with cancer. He loved the nautical life he shared with Woodi 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 recommendations.

Peter and Pasty, two rescued tabby cats, also live the life of Riley at Wakefield Quay.

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