I have stayed there twice now giving spiritual workshops to others in Christchurch, and I did not want to go home! Eva makes you feel so welcome and her home and property are so beautiful overlooking the Bay, and 5mins from the amazing chocolate cafe. Eva's food is scrumptious, fulfilling and healthy. She has a peaceful way that emanates to all who stay there, as well as being a very organised. I thoroughly recommend her b&b. Ocha Sheehan, teacher, Sydney

Governor's Bay B&B will not disappoint! Eva provides hospitality that is hard to match. The breakfast--full of delicious home grown delights--will leave you full and feeling energized. The house is both aesthetically pleasing and comforting. The views are magnificent. The massage was the best I've ever received. This place is truly an oasis--full of pleasing smells, sights and sounds. If you are looking for a unique experience and some pampering, check out Governor's Bay B&B. There's even a peacock!

What an amazing place to stay for one night or a week. The views of the bay are superb. It took me only seconds to relax and soak up the delightful peaceful energy of this oasis.
Eva’s breakfast is beyond words. A spread fit for a queen and or a king. I like that Eva serves organic wholesome food prepared with love.
I have stayed in many B&B’s around the world, but there is something very special about this one. I highly recommend Eva’s B & B when
traveling the South Island.

The most beautiful place I have stayed in New Zealand. I loved the view and peaceful experience so much that I came to stay again. The area is surrounded by excellent hiking and mountain bike trails. I highly recommend this B&B!
