  • Thank you for your email and the opportunity to give feed back. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would recommend The Lookout to others. It suited me very well while my home was being renovated. It is a perfect size for one or two and has everything you need. Having full kitchen facilities and a washing machine ad drier was a selling point for me, especially staying for a month. I left some oranges and limes- I hope you found and used them!! Kind regards and thank you again. Sandra Heney

  • A Home Away From Home The location was great. Lovely view. The whole place was a nice "home away from home". Everything was there that we needed. Love the info that was left for us.

  • Wonderful experience, a snap shot of living in a unique and beautiful home. We loved everything about this stay, it was a great experience, felt like we were living in a grown up tree house. Nestled in between the hills, with a lovely decking area for coffee or a glass of wine, whilst breathing in the panoramic views and fresh air.

  • Beautifully built & decorated, the Lookout offers all the comfort & convenience you will need to make the most of your Nelson stay! We look forward to welcoming our first guests & sharing their reviews here soon!
