    Matt Hawkins - Mar, 2017

  • Hi PJ We had an absolutely terrific time at The Cliffs — what a gorgeous view of the bay - even on a rainy day.

    J Johnson - Mar, 2017

  • The Cliffs is a terrific place in Nelson. It's perched on the side of the hill with amazing views of the bay and islands. Even though it's in a neighborhood, it feels very private. It's also a huge space with two large bedrooms and a smaller bedroom with bunkbeds. It would definitely be large enough for a big family. There is an outside terrace which was a great place for cocktails in the afternoon. Unfortunately, it rained a lot while we were there but there is also a glassed-in room that's perfect to sit during rainy weather. We absolutely loved the house although the town of Nelson was a bit quieter than we had anticipated. We had a terrific stay -- thanks for your hospitality.

  • Hi PETA-Jane and Jarrod, We really enjoyed our stay at The Cliffs. The house was very well appointed and very suitable for two couples, in particular. The view is spectacular and we are at the Boathouse Shed which is conveniently within walking distance. With your prompt emails renting the property and locating it on our arrival day was very easy. We particularly appreciated your quick response to our query about the barbecue. It does however need to be repaired to cook properly - there is a corroded burner or valve which is preventing adequate heat management. However it did not prevent us from cooking. Also, a minor point, but it would be great if paper towels were provided. We would love to come back if we return to Nelson some day. Many thanks Ann

    A Peters - Feb, 2017

    Hi Ann, We'll take another look at the bbq and seek to replace the burners if corroded/damaged. Thanks for alerting us to the persistence of a problem. Paper towels are normally provided - apologies none were available during your stay. We hope to host you again some day :-)

  • Hi Holiday Nelson. Thanks for your email, I think the house was great and had all the things we needed! Was a great position and Nelson a fantastic place to stay. We would all love to come again! Kathryn

    K McAullay - Jan, 2017

  • The property was just fabulous, the view looking out over the water was amazing! The house was well equipped and beds were comfortable although a few more essential items would have been great (eg some instant coffee and perhaps a bottle of milk) but other than that it was a great stay and we will be back!

    A Oliver - Jan, 2017

  • We had a wonderful time in this beautiful home with such a lovely view of the water. Jarrod was helpful with ideas of which sites to see and places to visit. Great choice!

    L Picus - Jan, 2017

  • Dear Jarrod et al, We really enjoyed The Cliffs and we were especially grateful for the warm, dry place to hang out when the weather was so crummy during the last two days of our stay. We made full use of the big screen TV and the video collection. Having a well appointed kitchen was appreciated when we ate in. One note, the starter on the BBQ was not working and we had to improvise without matches - happily the burner on the side allowed us to make a flame. It was really nice to have the two main bedrooms a at opposite ends of the house. And, while originally daunting, we did manage to walk up and down the hill to restaurants! This house clearly works well for two couples and would be equally comfortable for a family. Thanks again!

    B Foster & Friends - Dec, 2016

  • Hi there Thank you for having us! We had a great time at the Cliffs - it was easy to organise with you and the location was beautiful ! The house was lovely, clean and the views were amazing! The only negative feedback we have would be the showers... the sliding doors desperately need replacing as the 3 panelled doors stick and jam - which is no fun when you're inside the shower box!! Otherwise a brilliant booking Many thanks.

    M Seebeck - Nov, 2016

  • We'll take a look at the shower doors at The Cliffs - they should be working nice and smoothly, but may have been knocked off their tracks. Once again, thank you for staying and we will hope to host you again someday soon :-)

    Holiday Nelson response - Nov, 2016

  • Hi Jarrod, It was excellent place to stay and lovely service from you – would love to return. Thanks Melanie

    M Smith - Oct, 2016

  • Thanks very much Jarrod for catching up. Yes we definitely enjoyed our time, albeit too short and too much to cram in. We certainly enjoyed those wonderful views and the handy situation. I hope we did the right thing with the rubbish and recycling as I didn’t feel good committing a large rubbish bag to what we had. Thank you too for allowing Max the dog to stay (sorry we had to have his ‘cousin’ Duncan visit on occasions, that was not planned, but I’m sure they both left little sign of being there – we were sure to manage those situations off the property. We will certainly be back in the future. Nelson is a favourite destination. Thanks especially too for dropping off the Teapot, it was much appreciated. I know how hard it is keeping up with everything and I hope we left the house in good condition. Certainly the late checkout was a great help. Hopefully we’ll be back without all the add-ons for a nice quiet and leisurely stay. Cheers Sandy

    S Voller - Aug, 2016

  • We really enjoyed the house! The view is great

    B Rule - Mar, 2016

  • We very much enjoyed our stay at the Cliffs. Great location and had everything we needed for a family. Plenty of space too which was a bonus and the views were magnificent!

    D Hammond - Jan, 2016

    Holiday Nelson - Oct, 2015

  • We absolutely loved staying at the Cliffs. Only sorry we did not stay longer. The property is well located, in great condition and felt like home away from home. Would not hesitate to recommend or return. Thanks for having us
