    Holiday Nelson - Mar, 2024

  • We highly recommend City Views – our family with 2 kids stayed there for 10 weeks for the first school term. We appreciated our stay a lot. The house has been renovated very nicely; the kitchen is very well equipped. Being located slightly up the hill it offers an awesome view over the town and the sea. It has a nice terrace and garden as well. The location is highly recommended as it takes only a short walk to Nelson schools and into town as well as to the MaiTai river for a swim.

    Antonia J. - Apr, 2023

  • Hi thanks for the great holiday the house was awesome and we had a really good Xmas would recommend staying here 100 % The house had everything we needed very clean great setting close to everything so thanks again regards the stringer family

    Chris S. - Dec, 2021

  • Great place Excellent for family wonderful views highly recommend

    Michelle W. - Nov, 2021

  • Hi Mara, Fab stay loved the house! It was a shame that the weather meant we couldn't take advantage of the lovely decks.

    Sharon C. - Nov, 2021

  • Tena koutou He mihi Thanks for checking in and the tips for rebooking. The house at #42 worked well for us - some staying and coming in from all around the region and a few coming just for the day meeting.. We struggled to engage the security lock on window above kitchen sink. - other than that smooth process - thank you. Chrissy

    Chrissy P. - Oct, 2021

  • Lovely house, very very nice views all over Nelson. Close to the city, cafes, restaurants and walks. We had a great time, all warm and cosy too, hurray!!!

    Anja M. - Jul, 2021

  • Great location. Perfect house for our family. Amazing views!

    India T - Apr, 2021

  • Great view of the Nelson town centre and mountains beyond

    Popese S - Apr, 2021

  • Excellent accommodation

    Phil B. - Apr, 2021

  • Very Tidy and clean house, a little more than 5mins to walk to town and a hill at the end of the walk. We would stay there again

    Caroline A - Mar, 2021

  • We were a group of five attending a conference in Nelson. The house is very clean, neat and comfortable. It is also very accessible to Nelson City center, restaurants, etc. which was an easy 10 - 15 minute walk, but at times we called a taxi if time was scarce. The deck and the view was an amazing feature of the house and a great place to catch up and unwind at the end of the day. Highly recommended for tourist stays or business stays.

    Marlene B - Mar, 2021

  • Hello Thank you for a truly comfortable and enjoyable stay. We appreciated the quality and cleanliness of the accomodation and would very happily stay again. Kind regards Persis

    Persis J - Jan, 2021

  • Great location with stunning views Thanks for the use of your house,fantastic location and views

    Sheldon Hill - Dec, 2020

  • We loved staying here, fabulous views and lovely well equiped kitchen and living area suited a large family. Thank you so much for your hospitality we really enjoyed staying in nelson. Loved the views and they house suited us perfectly!

    Leah - Dec, 2020

  • Great spot with heaps of space and a big outdoor deck area. Clean and modern, with hosts that are quick with the communication. Great location walkable to town. What more could you want? Thanks for a great stay, lovely place in a great location and great communication. Cheers!

    Paul - Nov, 2020

  • The house was very clean and comfortable with particular mention made of the good lounge furniture. The only slight negative was the awkward access. But you cannot have views without hills

    Deborah - Nov, 2020

  • Great views and very quiet

    Mike James - Mar, 2020

  • A very comfortable house with fantastic views from both the sun drenched deck and the modern lounge/dining room which features massive sliding windows to the deck. It made for a very relaxed stay in which you could maximise the beautiful environment in which it is located. The house is decorated with some great art which added interest.

    Rob Eaton - Mar, 2020

  • Great location and outlook, house is in safe location and close to mountain bike trails. Steep shared driveway, but worth the hike. Modern bathrooms and open lounge /dining space. We enjoyed our time and the location and layout of the house. Thanks a lot.

    Paul Stott - Jan, 2020

  • Things I liked: 1. Location: hillside residential neighborhood a 10 min walk to nearest coffee shop and pub...another 5 mins to Nelson CBD. The street up to house and the driveway to the house are super narrow. Best if your rental car is a small one! 2. View. Looking out over Nelson was nice from the living room and amble outdoor deck spaces. Hopefully the host will have the windows cleaned and the outdoor patios and furniture cleaned to enhance these key attributes Layout: good for families with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths (one in each floor) Living room was big and comfortable and took advantage of view. Kitchen was supplied above average, but could use better and more cooking utensils and bowls. WiFi: consistently good. Also liked having use of Netflix. Thinks I didn’t like: Guess I already described them.

    Steve Nielsen - Jan, 2020

  • “Just a really nice place to stay, looking over Nelson with plenty of sun and a great outdoor deck. The home has a good energy”

    Brad Alderslade - Nov, 2019

  • Many thanks for your email. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Nelson and the house was perfect for our needs. It was in a great central spot, meaning we could walk into town for dinner each night. And the house was a great size for our two families (4 adults, 4 kids). thanks, Amber

    Amber Ardern - Oct, 2019

  • It was a very nice property, everything was clean and well maintained. Bed was very comfortable. Awesome view and balcony/terrace to sit out on. We cancelled dinner plans one night to just sit and enjoy the view with a glass of wine and some snacks. Great location; we walked into downtown Nelson a couple nights for dinner.

    Stephanie Lichter - Feb, 2019

  • Set up a little above the city, this family accomodation was perfect for our visit to beautiful Nelson Really loved the place and great views too

    Oliver FitzGerald - Jan, 2019

  • Hi, Thanks for asking. I was about to drop a quick note as well, but was just too busy with holiday-making

    Matthias Steffen - Jan, 2019

  • Good location as it is possible to walk to town but you dont get those views without a climb! The house was incredibly well kitted out with the kitchen supplies as well as laundry powder etc so I was very impressed

    Colleen Coffey - Dec, 2018

  • Sensational home which has been clearly updated since the photos were taken! Thank you so much for the beautiful presentation and care that was taken to ensure our stay was so enjoyable!

    Bob, Jane & the kids - Sep, 2018

  • Hi Jarrod We were very happy with the house - thank you. Loved the [much needed] electric blankets! The only gripe we had was with one of the pillows in the downstairs twin room - was pretty flat and didn't offer much support. Lovely spot up in the hills and enjoyed having the outdoor space. Thanks again for the late checkout.

    Kate Coley - Sep, 2018

    Thank you Kate - really glad that you enjoyed your stay and thanks for letting us know about the pillow. We'll double check all the pillows and ad in some extra pillow options :-) All the best, Jarrod

  • Stunning house! Very cosy and comfortable. Great location!

    Hannah St Claire - Sep, 2018

  • Hi Rob, We have all arrived home safely after really enjoying our stay at City Views. The conference was really good and our work shops very informative. It was especially nice to have a superb venue to return to each day. Thank you for dealing with the couple of issues we had so promptly. We hope we left all to your liking. Thank you for helping to make our Nelson trip so enjoyable. Regards Jennifer and the ladies from the Warkworth Embroiderer's Guild.

    J Kirker - Jul, 2018

  • Our second time staying here. Perfect place to be able to get into town and still be able to do some trail running in the hills at the park next door

    Kent Wien - Apr, 2018

  • Lovely house great location and views! Also great communication ;-)

    Carol Ann Todd - Apr, 2018

  • Hi team just a note to say thank you, we enjoyed our time in Nelson for MarchFest and the property was great! Definitely be in touch to book for next year. Cheers

    Jaron Burbidge - Mar, 2018

  • We loved the location. Super close to mountain biking trails and trail running areas. Be sure to walk to ‘the center of New Zealand. It’s super close and easy to do in an evening. We stayed here for 7 or 8 days. Loved the washer and dryer, the deck and the kitchen. If you rent a car (we didn’t) there is a spot to park right next to the front door. We ate in town. Super easy 10-15 minute walk into the center of town. We loved ‘The Kitchen.

    Kent Wien - Mar, 2018

  • It was a great place to stay. Very good location, excellent facilities and superb view across the city.

    Kevin Allan - Apr, 2017

  • Nicest place ever! Charming, modern, clean, peaceful and very very comfortable! Lots of lovely spaces including outdoor spaces. Great location, 10 minutes to walk into the heart of Nelson for our outings. It is very well equipped, we didn't want for anything. Easy access to shops in town. This is a gorgeous home and very easy to relax in and enjoy Nelson from. Thoroughly recommend it and if we are back in Nelson will definitely want to stay here!

    Bhageerathy R - Mar, 2017

  • We had a fantastic stay at City-Views - the location was great, the beds were super comfortable and the deck was made for lazy afternoons in the sun. Highly recommended, would stay again!"

    J Wyner - Dec, 2016

  • Jarrod, We had a great time in Nelson, wonderful place. We appreciate your attentive action to the hot water issue and the offer to use your house if needed. We have reviewed the property and given it a highly recommended review but really appreciated your service and action when needed. We realise that this was not ultimately something you could control. Hope to book though you again soon based upon your service.

    G & J Hose - Aug, 2016

  • Hi, Myself and some colleagues recently stayed at City Views property whilst attending the scientific conference and I just wanted to say thank you for the opportunity because it allowed us to experience beauty and serene nature of the city. We made sure to keep the house tidy, unfortunately we may have been a bit too scrupulous with our cleaning because we made our beds and hung up our towels. I just remembered this and thought to add a couple of lines with this information to help the preparation for the next guests. Once again many thanks the house was perfectly positioned and comfortable, my only regret is that I didn’t spend enough time there during the day to explore the garden or just bask in the sun.

    O Ebenebe - Aug, 2016

  • Hi Jarrod and team, Thank you so much for an incredible stay. The home was a lot larger than we expected – it was just fantastic, with two living areas, a huge kitchen and dining area and generous sized bathrooms and bedrooms. It was far away enough from town that it was quiet and private, yet just a 5-10 minute walk along the river - is just gorgeous! The house was immaculate with great facilities and a wonderful outdoor area to relax in the sun. We will definitely be back.

    C Armitage - Mar, 2016

  • Thank you for the opportunity to comment on our stay at 42 Cleveland Terrace. We felt privileged to stay in what felt like a family home. However, although it was comfortable and well equipped, we felt that there was too much 'stuff' in the house for a holiday home.  This prevents it being given a thorough clean, and we felt it would benefit from the paintwork, cupboards, shelves, ceilings, behind beds and in drawers and corners being washed down and cleaned.  And it was difficult to tell which cutlery, crockery and kitchen implements had recently been washed. The vacuum cleaner was very difficult to manoeuvre on the thick pile carpet. However, the bathrooms were very clean. Overall, we loved the house and its position and should love to stay again if we are lucky enough to revisit if we return to New Zealand, as we hope to do in Dec 2018.

    C & G Gilbert - Feb, 2016

  • Surprisingly close to the central city - just a 10min walk to some great eateries, shopping, the River &more. We LOVED the views through the tops of the enormous heritage trees of the city centre right out to the sea! City Views was well furnished, the beds were comfy, the bathrooms and overall presentation was amazing. Good job!

    P Healy - Mar, 2015

  • This was our first 'holiday home' experience and we're glad to report we really enjoyed ourselves! While we aren't able to compare the quality of other properties at this level we can say that we were impressed by the beautiful presentation and cleanliness of this great home. The location was perfect for us as we could explore the city and surrounds by foot and we even hired bikes for a day to venture as far as the waterfront and beach areas of the city! This is a beautiful property with wonderful service to back it up. We would describe the location as ideal for visitors to this fantastic little city!
