    Andrew Kordecki - Apr, 2017

  • Booking was quick and easy - no problems at all. Beautiful and well equipped home, must be used by owners based on the well stocked kitchen cupboards! Lovely bathrooms and kitchen, lots of space for the three generations in our family that stayed. Cannot access garage but plenty of off street parking available. Wonderful views, very clean and all basic toiletries supplied. About 3 minutes drive to nearby shops, and I think about 7 minutes drive to centre of Nelson. Would happily recommend to other families.

  • “This house is amazing, best stay in Nelson”

    Jon Burridge - Mar, 2017

  • "Loved this house ! We had such a relaxing time and super views to !!!"

    Shelley Knox - Mar, 2017

  • It was the first time I'd used this website and was impressed how easy it was to book. And then the clear instructions I received by email about all the details I'd need to find the place and check in. The house was really lovely. It's so hard to tell from photos what somewhere is like and Aporo exceeded my expectations. Light and airy with great views (when the rain stopped). Tasteful decor with all the comforts u need. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

    R Oakley - Mar, 2017

  • Hello everyone, I would just like to say my family and I immensely enjoyed our stay in Nelson. The accomodation really was perfect for us. Also your communication and help was truly appreciated. I will most likely use Aporo or something similar when I return to Nelson, which hopefully will be sooner rather than later! All the best,

    Connal Mackenzie - Mar, 2017

  • Hello A huge thank you for the wonderful stay. The house was fantastic. Clean, well maintained, warm, inviting and views to die for. Our stay was 2 days of fun in a lovely setting. We read books, watched the planes land ( we were even astounded at how many planes come in and out of Nelson). Had a barbecue, and just thoroughly enjoyed our stay, even when it rained. We would highly recommend your Aporo to any of our family and friends. We hope you were happy with the condition we left the house in. We would stay again if we are in Nelson. Mina & Phill

  • “Great house with wonderful views of the ocean and tidal flats. Superb deck surrounds the water sides of the property with comfortable outdoor furniture, tables and a grill. House has everything you could want, even had a pantry stocked with coffee, tea, sugar, condiments, oils, paper towels, all the things you don't want to have to go out and buy when you arrive. Location is a water view residential district above city center with direct road access North to the Abel Tasman route avoiding the morning and evening city traffic. ”

    Phil Johnson - Feb, 2017

  • Great hosts, Very easy to deal with - great communication, clear instructions. The property was amazing - A great location and extremely well equipped! Low maintenance and had everything we needed. I would go straight back here on my next trip to Nelson.

    Ethan Amundsen - Feb, 2017

  • Hi - had a great weekend thank you and the house was terrific for our purposes. Thanks for coming to look at the shower issue so quickly; everything else was fine and we thoroughly enjoyed our use of it. Thanks for all your help along the way Kind regards Joan

    J Mackenzie - Jan, 2017

  • Enjoyed our stay!

    S Thompson - Oct, 2016

  • Hi there We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Aporo. It was beautifully presented and extremely comfortable. We would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting larger accommodation in Nelson. My brother from Melbourne mentioned that a shower caddy would be good to put things in, in the main bathroom but otherwise it was very well appointed.Our only problem was the weather on Friday night-Nelson fog-which prevented four of us getting down to Nelson until Saturday morning-only the groom and Dennis his father got to sleep there Friday night- leaving the rest of us us only 30 minutes to get changed and ready for our son's wedding. We would all have loved to have spent longer at Aporo and enjoy the fabulous view for longer. Thank you

    J & D Mundt - Sep, 2016

  • Hi guys. Team have never complained about the houses and enjoyed there stay. Beats a motel unit and they like when a BBQ is available. Your services are always clear and prompt so no complaints from me. Thanks and regards Dave

    D Grigor - Aug, 2016

  • Absolutely the best accommodation - superbly equipped house, very comfortable, wonderful views, would definitely stay again and recommend to all, layout worked very well for our extended family. Thank you!

    T Johnson - Jul, 2016

  • Thanks – enjoyed our stay very much. Beautiful house, well kept, very clean and tidy, everything we needed and more. Enjoyed some beautiful sunsets, all day sunshine to keep warm and a good heat pump in the evenings. Will definitely stay again next year!

    Z Maslin - Jun, 2016

  • Hi Jarrod and Peta –Jane Thanks again for your help with this We loved the property. It was immaculately clean, modern and everything thought through. Please thank the owners for us -we had a wonderful holiday.

    Gaby G - Apr, 2016

  • Hi Jarrod, Peta-Jane and Fawn, We had an amazing stay at Aporo. Nice and tidy sunny holiday house. With everything we needed. Thanks a lot. We had a great time in Nelson

    Piety S - Apr, 2016

  • Hi, the property was great. Booking and communication was great. Thanks for making it so easy.

    B & L Storey - Mar, 2016

  • The house was beautiful, and the view--spectacular! We enjoyed the spaciousness of the home, and the large sized kitchen and patio area that was well-appointed with pans and cooking supplies. The large windows that opened up in the kitchen, dining and lounge area were nicely designed to create an indoor/outdoor space with breezy airflow that prevented us from getting hot in those rooms on warmer days. In a town with tricky/difficult parking on the hillside, we appreciated the easy parking and access to the house. Would we stay again? In a heartbeat! I also found your service (Holiday Nelson) to be especially professional and helpful. Thanks again!

    Alisa & Jared L (USA) - Mar, 2016

  • Hi Jarrod and Peta-Jane, Aporo is a fantastic house which we loved staying in, the location is perfect - within 5-10 minutes driving distance to the beach and the town centre, getting a taxi into town and back was easy and cheap! The views are stunning and the house is so quiet, it was very easy to relax in. It has been well planned for a holiday home with every convenience we could think of, the artwork was amazing and the house is incredibly warm, comfortable and sunny. We loved staying here and would recommend for couples or families! A couple of things it might pay to bring to the owners attention, the tiles to the front door are treacherous when wet, my husband slipped on them a couple of times on the day we left and we got a takeaway pizza delivered on the last night and the delivery guy fell over. Also there is a bit of an ant infestation happening within the house, didn’t bother us too much but it might with other people. Once again, thank you for your help with us getting this house - we would love to come back to it for another holiday!!

    J Houliston - Jan, 2016

    Thanks again for choosing to stay at Aporo with Holiday Nelson! So glad you enjoyed your stay :-)

  • Thanks for this great feedback! We'll look at what we can do to add extra grip to the tiles in the rain and we'll begin baiting for ants. Ants have been present at many properties this Summer - it's been a great one for the ants with exceptionally good weather & very little rain. Thanks again.

    Holiday Nelson - Jan, 2016

  • Hi Jarrod, We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Nelson and the service provided by Holiday Nelson was outstanding. Best of all was the beautiful property that we stayed in. It was just like being home from home which took all the stress out of staying somewhere else. What a fantastic property. We would definately come back to the property if we were to stay in Nelson again.
