  • Hi, Holiday Nelson as our accommodation provider provided excellent service thank you. The location of Riverside Villa along the Maitai River was perfectly suited for our stay. Regards, Bill and Caroline

  • A perfect place for my family to base out of for exploring Abel Tasman and Marlborough. Centrally located within walking distance of Nelson’s best restaurants yet also on a quiet street by the river. I would definitely stay here again.

    Grant Van Horn - Jan, 2018

  • Quick and professional responses everytime. Perfect location walking distance to everything. Would rethink hiring a car if we stayed here again :-)

    Glen Debreceny - Dec, 2017

  • Thanks, Riverside Villa was beautiful, comfortable and ideally located for us. We had a great time!

    Kara Dawson - Jun, 2017

  • Perfect place to stay for an extended period with co-workers. Good size, stylish and comfortable. Walking distance to all that you require.

    Callum McDonald - Jun, 2017

  • Lovely location on the river - easy to get to and fro all the things we wanted to do. you can easily get by without a car.

    Jenny Carr - Mar, 2017

  • Thanks again for the property, we had another great time in Nelson and at MarchFest, and thanks for the later checkout. Will be in touch to book again for next year

    J Burbidge - Mar, 2017

  • We stayed here for a conference in September 2015. Great place, perfect for 4-5 people and close to all of the restaurants and bars. Would recommend to all.

    L McNeill - Sep, 2016

  • Hi there We totally loved our stay at Riverside. Much nicer place than the photos show. The outside design was deceiving. Inside was suitable for a summer or winter stay. Perfect layout for our 'girls' weekend away. Walking distance to shopping, market and pubs. Really surprised about the central location - local coffee shop two doors away and a super yummy cafe 90 seconds walk in the other direction. Beautiful scenery right outside the door, can't wait to bring the kids back. It was also great that the road was a cul-der-sac and the only 'traffic' was people walking by. Will totally recommend to others. Thanks for making our stay really easy.

    J Steel - Mar, 2016

  • Yes thank you we had a great stay, just what we needed. The only remark would be the hot water boiler was switched off so we spent a fair time trying to figure out why and track down the boiler, it was turned off behind the cover. Oh and the cleaners turned up at 10:30am and didnt know we had agreed with Fern to a 12pm departure ... but other than that was great ... will try and lock it in for next years trip down 😊 Cheers

    J Burbidge - Mar, 2016

  • Yes we had a lovely stay in Nelson and very much enjoyed Riverside Villa. I hope the front door lock was not too much of a problem. The house was extremely comfortable and well set up: our only queries were how one could get a proper flow of hot water into the basin in the main bathroom, and how to make the curtain in the back bedroom stay on its rail. Otherwise, perfect! Cheers, Vicky

    V Ellis - Feb, 2016

  • We really had a good time in Nelson staying in the Riverside villa. It's just the perfect location. Thanks. We would live to stay there again.

    E Igot - Jan, 2016

  • Thank you for hiring us use of the beautiful house, it was very well furnished and supplied. We appreciated the full consignment of cleaning products and tea/coffee.
