  • Fantastic location The hosts were most accommodating to our requests and responded quickly and efficiently. They were very kind to our needs and even went the extra mile to ensure we were comfortable throughout our stay. Will definitely stay here again!

    Eva Koh - Sep, 2019

  • Great location, very easy to walk into town and access everything in Central Nelson. Tonnes of space for lots of guests. A short taxi ride from the airport. Great place to stay.

    Lisa Kavanagh - Sep, 2019

  • Fanrtastic quite cenrtral location with a well stock set of amenities. Quality wine glasses. Excellent

    Mike Denford - Aug, 2019

    James M. - Aug, 2019

  • Hi Team, Thank you for the lovely house. Also appreciate your help while we were there. It was certainly a great place in a fantastic location. Kind regards James

    James Moore - Aug, 2019

  • A lovely spot by the river with gorgeous walking, also really handy to everything in town, can walk anywhere.

    Penny Reynders - Jul, 2019

  • Thank you we very much enjoyed our stay in Nelson, the house was lovely and large for all of us and warm and toasty on those cooler mornings. We had no complaints, apart from there were a number of bulbs out in the lounge, and for some reason we couldn't get any hot water in the sink in the main downstairs bathroom. But none of that detracted from the lovely stay we had. Thank you

    Lisa Fawcett - May, 2019

    Hi Lisa, So glad you enjoyed your stay. Apologies for these inconveniences. The lights in the lounge are all LED and are controlled from a switch that sits behind the curtain on the RHS of the sliding doors near the dining table. You are not the first guests that have not been able to find this, and you would not be the last!, so we are going to take this as our cue to have an electrician come in and move that switch to the right where it will be visible. This shall be done today :-) We'll also check and fix the hot water in the main bathroom sink - that's something we can't explain without investigation. Thanks again for staying and we wish you all the best of the remainder of your journey. Kind regards, Jarrod

  • Hi Team Our stay at Riverside Villa (14 Ajax Ave, Nelson) was magical. It’s position beside the river was peaceful and healing. It was quiet and close to all the facilities you require in central Nelson. The house was lovely to stay in - fully appointed with all we needed and warm with the gas water heating system. We absolutely loved our stay there and highly recommend it to others.

    Dave & Tina Richards - May, 2019

  • The house is in a wonderful location. So close to everything yet on a quiet street right by the river. It has everything you could need for a relaxing break. Very well set up with 4 bedrooms and plenty of space for a group. We will definitely be back.

    Kate Jenkins - Apr, 2019

  • Hi team. We had a fantastic week stay at Riverside Villa thanks. The layout of this home was perfect for all 9 members of our family who appreciated all being able to stay in same accommodation. The house is very well equipped and comfortable beds. Location of course is premier and our Aussie family highly rated the coffee next door ...a real bonus!!. As I mentioned in the card I left you which I hope you received, your prompt communication throughout was appreciated and good wishes to you all. Regards

    Maree Davidson - Apr, 2019

  • Beautiful house in the best location in Nelson. We are three women in our sixties who spent a wonderful week at the Riverside Villa in March, 2019. We did a tour of the wineries in Marlborough Sound, we spent a day at Abel Tasman National Park, we rented bikes, we walked, we visited parks, gardens, the markets, the provincial museum, and we ate many wonderful meals at the excellent local restaurants. The location of the house couldn’t be better. It’s in the middle of everything; a couple of minutes walk to coffee shops, restaurants, the visitors’ center, bike rentals, the movie theater. The house is comfortable, well-equipped, safe and quiet, even though it’s centrally located. When we had a small problem with the front door key, the staff were there within minutes to solve the problem. I highly recommend this property.

    Patricia Rothman - Mar, 2019

  • Thank you for letting the Riverside Villa to us My family from Perth stayed in the House which is conveniently located to us The Villa is presented in top shape and I would like to rent it on future visits All the best for 2019 Happy New Year to you Cheers Murray G Sturgeon

    Murray Sturgeon - Jan, 2019

  • Great location, excellent privacy, lovely atmosphere, great communication. Will definitely come back :)

    Chelsea Price - Dec, 2018

  • Hi Robert, Sara and Jarrod. We had a great stay in the villa! Perfect location and really well set up house. Only disappointment was the mattress in the double bedroom opposite the bathroom. It needs upgrading! Super service thank you! We’ll certainly recommend you to others. Wishing you all a very merry Christmas! Rebecca Sorrell

    Rebecca Sorrell - Dec, 2018

  • Jarrod and Peta-Jane were incredibly efficient and the information and instructions given were spot on Superb location in the heart of Nelson. The house had everything you need for a stay away

    Rebecca Sorrell - Dec, 2018

  • We enjoyed our stay at Riverside, the setting is very central with lovely walks along the river. Nearby cafes are very nice. Riverside was very comfortable with everything we needed.

    Ken and Carol Shelley - Nov, 2018

  • Lovely place and great position.

    H Morrison - Oct, 2018

  • Hi, We had a great time in Nelson and we were all very impressed with the accomodation. The only thing we thought would be great was some more outdoor furniture as there was 8 of us but only 2 chairs Thanks

    S Foster - Sep, 2018

    Hi Stacey, Glad you enjoyed your stay. Extra outdoor chairs are in the back courtyard and garage - we don't normally bring them out until the weather warms up properly. We will be looking at the courtyard space and working with our homeowner to upgrade this and the furniture there too :-) Thanks again for staying and we'll hope to host you again some day soon :-)

  • Thanks Robert Jarrod and Sara, We really enjoyed our stay. I hope we left it tidy enough. :) It was a wonderful weekend and the house was perfect. Enough room for us all and very comfortable. The location is outstanding. Funny enough my partner and I when we first moved to NZ in 2009, lived briefly at 7 Ajax, the little apartment out back. It was like coming home. All the best, Cheers, Jason

    J Bathgate - Sep, 2018

  • This is a wonderful house and location - great in every way. Highly recommended. So quiet to sleep in, despite the central location, so really the best of both worlds. Thankyou.

    J Severn - Sep, 2018

  • ReviDear Holiday Nelson, Our stay at 14 Ajax Av on Sept 24th and 25th was excellent,and enjoyed by all. The location and position was perfect, so much so my friends all want to repeat the experience. It was clean and well appointed, 2 suggestions would be to increase the number of dessert size plates and dessert spoons. Easily done and would be appreciated by all. Sorry about the mirror { I phoned you about}.

    Barb Harwood - Sep, 2018

    Thanks Barb and John, So glad that you enjoyed your time at Riverside Villa and thank you for the suggestion - we'll have extra dessert size plates and spoons added! Not to worry about the mirror and sorry that happened during your stay. We very much appreciated you letting us know about this and for cleaning up the glass. It would be a pleasure to host you all again :-)

  • 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

    C & B Burke - Jul, 2018

  • 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.
