  • Hi Holiday Nelson We thoroughly enjoyed our stay – thanks so much for making it happen. It’s the second time we have stayed in a bach you look after and will do so again. Really appreciate your helpful and prompt service. All the best Tanya

    Tanya T - Jan, 2021

  • Comfortable and convenient We really enjoyed our stay here. The house is spacious and an easy place to feel at home in. The beds are about the most comfortable we have ever had! Also it's in a very convenient but quiet location in the centre of Nelson. Thoroughly recommend it, we'll certainly be back.

    Tanya - Jan, 2021

  • Endroit parfaitement placé. À deux pas de la balade de long de la rivière et à quelques minutes du centre ville et des commerces. Idéal et paisible. (Perfectly placed place. Two steps from the stroll along the river and a few minutes from the city center and shops. Ideal and peaceful.)

    Jeanne Fauquenot - Apr, 2020

  • We very much enjoyed our stay as usual in beautiful Nelson. Your management services are outstanding!

    Paul & Marilyn Whisenand - Jan, 2020

  • Many thanks, Myself and family from Wales had a fabulous stay at the villa after our tour of the south Island for two weeks. It is a beautiful property and a wonderful bit of luxury to end our stay down South. Everyone in our party was very impressed with the property and its facilities, and also how it is within an easy walk to the town centre. Thanks for a great stay, Kind regards Annmarie Mead

    Annmarie Mead - Jan, 2020

  • This place is great. It's close enough to town to be able to walk everywhere. Supermarkets are also close enough to walk to. The Suter Art Gallery is a short walk away, and Riverside Pool is only 5 minutes walk away. Great for kids as well. Full kitchen and a shady outdoor space. Two good coffee shops to choose from (7010 across the river, and Bobby Franks corner of Grove and Tasman Streets). Grove St is quiet. House can be warmed up or cooled down easily. Parking right out front, but you won't need a car unless you're planning day trips away. Thanks for the venue. I discovered in looking back through my messages that we'd tried to book with you several years ago but you were unfortunately full. I'm glad that, this time, the space was free for us to stay. It's a great local place, and between two good coffee shops as well (7010 and Bobby Franks).

    Craig McBride - Dec, 2019

  • A beautifully presented, clean and warm home. Perfectly located only walking distance into town.

    Debbie Hawker - Nov, 2019

  • Absolutely loved everything about this house! Clean, very roomy, charming and exactly like the pictures on the Holiday Houses website - it truly exceeded all our expectations. Our thanks to Rob, Sarah and Myra at Holiday Homes Nelson for the great customer service we received from the first moment we enquired about booking this lovely spot to the last day of our vacation!

    Kimberly Skilliter - Nov, 2019

  • thanks - lovely house, we really enjoyed our stay. The things like cooking oil and herbs and spices in the kitchen are a really helpful touch. best wishes Ivan and Grainne Moss

    Ivan & Grainne Moss - Oct, 2019

  • great house, great location lovely house, well equipped, lovely decor and atmosphere, great hosts, highly recommended

    Ivan Moss - Oct, 2019

  • We had a wonderful few days at this lovely old villa. Everything you need is in there, we cooked some gourmet meals in the beautiful renovated kitchen. The location is excellent, an enjoyable walk to the CBD, or short car ride. It makes a great base if you are experiencing Nelson for the first time like us. The Holiday Nelson team were very helpful and easy to deal with too.

    Jane Bennett - Apr, 2019

  • Grove Garden Villa was perfectly situated for our 3-day stay in Nelson. Close to the town centre, with some lovely cafes close by. The villa was large enough to accommodate two couples comfortably.

    Sheree Crick - Apr, 2019

  • What a great place - you can't get a better location and in such a great package! The house is gorgeous and comfortable. The design well thought out and executed, the space nice and warm when the rain set in, and the beds comfortable. We'll definitely be staying here when we return, thanks!

    Sarah Woollett - Mar, 2019

  • A fantastic place to stay, fully appointed and in an excellent location. Two bathrooms and powerful showers, plenty of room - great for a family. We had a fabulous stay in Nelson. The house is so central and it was great having two bathrooms. We enjoyed the outside space as well.

    Kevin Lassen - Feb, 2019

  • Beautiful villa that has been decorated with care and with period features. Plenty of room for three adults and a lovely garden complete with strawberries! Ideally located for central Nelson - all within walking distance. Nice quiet area with ample parking.

    Suzanne Boslem - Dec, 2018

  • Hi Robert, Sara & Jarrod, Grove Garden Villa was comfortable and central. A chest of drawers and hooks in the bathroom would be handy. Regards, Phillipa & Steve

    Steve & Phillipa Trowbridge - Dec, 2018

  • Hi We really enjoyed our stay in the Villa. Is it available again for December 7 and 8 and February 1 and 2? Thanks

    Lowri McNabb - Nov, 2018

  • Beautiful property, in an ideal location for proximity to town. A very warm and well looked after property. A character villa with modern facilities and well maintained furnishings. . Would definitely recommend to anyone looking and would stay again. Jarrod and Peta-Jane were excellent to communicate with. Always quick to respond any emails. We made a last minute enquiry for a late check out and they kindly reorganised the cleaners to accomodate our request without hesitation

    William Coxhead - Nov, 2018

  • This place is great. Simple, clear instructions from owners, beautiful and handy space, close to everything you need. Thanks a lot for a stress free and beautiful place to stay

    Penny Prescott - Sep, 2018

  • Sorry for the long delay on giving you feedback. We were very happy with the Grove Garden Villa and its presentation. We really liked it and it's handy location. We had a very nice time there and appreciated that you let us keep our dog there as well (he liked it too). One tiny thing would be to recommend that hooks be installed in the bathrooms for the hanging of robes and such and maybe a mirror in the shower room. (My wife wanted me to tell you this). So, thank you again and if we come down to Nelson again I will probably ask to stay at this place again. Thank you,

    Franz Johnston - Jul, 2018

    Thanks so much Franz and great feedback on the hooks for hanging things in the bathrooms - we'll see if we can have these added. Glad that the home and location worked well for you and we wish you all the best for your travels :-)

  • Great hosts, very happy with the level of communication and service. The house is lovely and in a fabulous location. It is only a short walk into town. The house has very nice classic features and the kitchen is great too.

    Vivana Sesardic - Dec, 2017

  • A stunning property - perfect for our group of six adults for the weekend. Everything immaculately clean. Beautifully presented & well-equipped. Beautiful kitchen & bathrooms and plenty of space for us all. Great location for walking to town and to Founders Park for the cider festival!

    Sarah Carr - Nov, 2017

  • Very clear instructions and communication. This bach has a great vibe with its beautiful rooms, high ceilings and authentic details: just loved this style of house. Location is great to walk into town and explore the Nelson/Tasman area.

    Maartje Koning - Jun, 2017

  • Easy to communicate with. Quick responses. We liked the house and that it was walking distance from the town centre.

    An Welvis - Apr, 2017

  • Jarrod, PJ and Sara, We--Sandi, Sam and Hannah--really enjoyed staying at Grove Garden Villa for our month+ vacation. Nelson was the perfect place in NZ and our location couldn't have been better for easy access to all the things we loved to do, like walking along the river every day, hiking up the hill to the "center of New Zealand", going to the many excellent restaurants in town, the Saturday Market, The Quaker meetinghouse, the movies, renting bikes right across from the iSite Center and more. We certainly put our walking shoes to good use! Hannah even joined a fitness center downtown and went to yoga classes for the month. The only disadvantage with the location was the noise on Friday and Saturday nights (till 3 or 4:00 a.m.!) from many people walking on the adjacent sidewalks or across the bridge loudly talking, singing or arguing, going home after a night out at the pub. The house itself was very comfortable, an older house nicely refurbished. Beds were comfortable and the room-darkening curtains were much appreciated allowing us to get extra sleep. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and tableware (just one suggestion--to provide a cheese plane). I did personally find the heavy down duvet too hot for the season, so we had to remove that and buy a fleece blanket to find the right comfort level in bed, and we left that grey queen blanket in it's plastic case in the front room with queen bed for future guests. I especially loved having a garden producing vegetables, fruit and herbs that we could eat, and garden work I could help with--pruning and tying up tomato vines, weeding, and watering. It made our temporary summer complete for me. It was fun meeting Steve, the owner, when he came to do some work, as he hails from our state of Maine in the US. And we really appreciated your prompt responses to the questions and concerns we had while staying there. If we ever come back to Nelson, a high likelihood, and need a place for 3 or 4 people, we will certainly get back in touch with you about Grove Garden Villa.

    S Jensen - Mar, 2017

  • Professional and friendly...great! This is a great little spot...I have travelled as a corporate for over 20 years and I always judge a property on cleanliness, the linen and the kitchen (be it in motels, hotels or homes!) This place ticked all the boxes...and the only minor tweak I would suggest would be a mirror for us girls in the shower room and a full length mirror somewhere in a bedroom. Would love to go back with friends and enjoy the sun in the lounge late afternoon with a wine or two as we didn't get enough time. Thanks

    Mikaela Gilbert - Mar, 2017

    Hi Mikaela, thanks for your feedback. We will make sure we add a mirror for your next stay!

  • Lovely spacious accommodation. Close to all the shops. Gardens were immaculate.

    C Cunliffe - Jan, 2017

  • Grove Garden Villa is a new listing available from early Summer 2016. We guarantee that the property will be presented as or better than advertised. We very much look forward to hosting our first guests & sharing their stay experience at this fantastic home & location!
