  • Hi We were delighted with the Villa. It was lovely to be in one of Nelson’s pretty villas. It was spacious, immaculately clean and had everything we needed. We were a family group and loved being together in such a gorgeous house. My daughter and I are both interior designers so we appreciated the styling. Thanks so much for making our stay wonderful.

    Wendy - Aug, 2023

    We are happy you enjoyed your stay with your family and hope to see you again in Nelson.

  • Nice location with lovely walks nearby. Plenty of books and games for guests to use.

    Michelle G. - May, 2023

  • Thanks for the great stay in the house. Also, thank you for the very prompt response to our request.

    Richard J. - May, 2023

  • Beautiful location - loved the proximity of the river and the walk into town. Beautiful home especially the generous bedrooms. Spotlessly clean! Lounge and dining areas cosy but a little cramped for our group of eight - didn’t diminish our enjoyment. Would highly recommend!

    David B. - Apr, 2023

  • Nice house in a great location. Would stay again when in Nelson.

    Gianluca V. - Apr, 2023

  • Very much a well thought out home away from home experience. The house was lovely and clean, bedrooms were spacious and the beds comfortable. The location was stunning and we easy to walk into town.

    Karen S. - Mar, 2023

  • Hi there ,we really enjoyed our stay and Nelson is beautiful . The apartment was well presented and clean, had everything we needed . The only thing that let it down is no air conditioning , the fan in the room did a little to help with the heat but it was really hard to sleep at night in such a hot room and it's definitely something that should be standard in a place that has high temperatures. Otherwise I will definitely recommend this place to friends as it is a beautiful unique place to stay . Regards , Annelies .

    Annelies T. - Feb, 2023

    Hi Annelies, Thank you so much for your feedback, it is very much appreciated. The heatwaves in Nelson last about 1 or 2 weeks per year so controlling the heat with curtains, windows and fans is our optimal solution. Other than the heat we've been experiencing, we are really glad you enjoyed and liked Villa Maitai :-)

  • A tidy and homely place, perfect for our two small families. Easy access to town

    Kristine M. - Feb, 2023

  • We had a fabulous stay , property met expectations, would come again.

    Christine J. - Jan, 2023

  • This was our family’s first trip to NZ and we enjoyed every single moment spending it in Nelson. This home was in a perfect location. close distance to downtown, groceries and Center of New Zealand Hike. It was so comfortable for our group to stay. If I was to make a suggestion it would be to spruce up the yard space and deck for outdoor activities. We will definitely recommend it and hope to be back someday soon.

    Tracy P. - Dec, 2022

  • Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback. Shane and the crew thoroughly enjoyed their stay at the house. It was well equipped, in close proximity to town, and very quiet. Just the right place to rest and relax while waiting for our boat to unload. They also found a 9 hole golf course close by, so were able to try it out. We will definitely be returning if the house is available...

    Maureen R. - Apr, 2022

  • Fantastic home in the heart of Nelson Our family of 5 stayed here during the school holidays and we had such a great time. Location was brilliant, with just a 20 min walk to the centre of town. Very quiet location with super comfy beds, well equipped and great wifi for those rare moments when the kids played tech :) Wish we stayed longer .. 9 days just wasn't enough

    Pat Tuohy - Mar, 2020
