  • We enjoyed our stay very much at this beautiful cottage. We felt particularly spoilt by having a bathroom each. We enjoyed walking in the area, we enjoyed the ambience of the house and we were lucky enough to have fabulous weather.

    Carolyn W. - Mar, 2022

  • Wow! What a fantastic stay... just what we needed to decompress and re-charge. Outstanding view and backdrop. Great deck for lounging in the sun. Loved having a bathroom for each bedroom! Lovely, clean and tidy house with good facilities. Loved being a little away from Nelson city - got a lovely, chilled vibe.

    Paul B. - Jan, 2022

  • Really enjoyed staying there. Highly recommended Great Location

    Stephen T. - Jan, 2022

    Anthony P. - Jan, 2022

    First, a great thank you to Holiday Nelson for all of the help and assistance throughout our stay! Nice people and very accommodating. This Airbnb in Monaco is a great place, very nicely set up for a family of four to six persons. You are right on the water; the water is a bit cool, and the tides empty out the bay, but the area is shallow and I would consider it very safe for children in my opinion. The home has three bedrooms, one of which is set up as two singles and best for children. The room ‘out back’ (separate lock and entry front the main house) is a great bedroom with great views. When the sun comes up in the morning the room get quite warm, so opening the windows tends to be necessary (this room does not have air conditioning). In terms of the location, the home is on the Monaco peninsula and there are walking tracks to Nelson (about 9 km) and to Richmond (about 6 km). I recommend the brick restaurant and the honest lawyer, both local, both good. Worth staying at!

  • Amazing location, beautiful home with everything you need to have a great time on holiday.

    Roberta O. - Dec, 2021

  • Great spot, lovely decks and outdoor area, tidal estuary in front of house. Great communication and checkin.

    Tristan S. - Nov, 2021

  • Monaco waterfront villa is a chef/ bakers paradise for entertaining guests. Also has many inviting places to relax and enjoy the sea and ever changing tides over the mud flats both inside and out.This is a spacious tastefully presented large villa.We and our guests admired the local paintings. Every mod con provided. Good sunny position. Will come again. Gabriel and David

    Gabriel and David K. - Oct, 2021

  • Lovely, cosy cottage by the sea! Amazing views. Fantastic stay, thank you! Even though it rained, the house was cosy and welcoming, especially with the fire. The house was very well set-up with everything we needed.

    Lauren W. - Oct, 2021

  • What an amazing and unique spot. Very relaxing. Thanks for the stay. What a great location. Very unique.

    Jason S - Oct, 2021

    Jenny S. - Jul, 2021

  • Nice view and great landlord

    Li G. - May, 2021

  • We loved our stay at Monaco. The location made our weekend Nelson visit really special by being by the water in a picturesque location. The tides didnt effect us at all, which made driving on the beach to get to the house so novel. The house itself is beautifully decorated with quality furnishings and lovely bathrooms. The artwork was fantastic too- perhaps done by the owner? Thanks for having us!

    Kelly P. - Mar, 2021

  • Thank you so much! Our stay was utterly perfect. A gorgeous property! Kindest, Christina

    Christina T. - Feb, 2021

  • Beautiful house, exceptionally clean and in a nice location. Sits on a bay with boats moored in front of the house, just wish the bay wasn’t quite so tidally influenced. I’d stay again if in Nelson.

    Grant Stanbro - Feb, 2020

  • Description was exactly accurate from the on line listing. Beautiful home, decided that it was the finest home we have stayed in so far. All the extras made it special.

    Pat Retzlaff - Feb, 2020

  • We had a wonderful stay in Monaco, thank you. The house was beautifully set up and well equipped, so we felt at home almost as soon as we moved in. That front deck with the ever-changing view is just so relaxing, we almost forgot that there were things to see and do elsewhere! We will return, and would thoroughly recommend the property to others. Regards, Simon

    Simon Wallace - Feb, 2020

  • This was a brilliant property in an amazing location. We stayed for three nights but wished it could have been longer. Communication with the hosts was easy and we got all the information we needed. The place was very clean and well furnished, and the outside decking with a view of the waterfront was brilliant. Thanks for having us to stay at your place in Monaco, we had a brilliant time and absolutely loved the house and the location!

    Jane Slocombe - Jan, 2020

  • The Best! We had a wonderful 3 days at this Bach and loved everything about it. The location is superb and the house has everything you need plus more. Wet highly recommended for couples and families.

    Sarah Cull - Jan, 2020

    Debs Laxon - Jan, 2020

  • Thank you Such a beautiful home. Cozy and well appointed. Despite weather loved it

    Jenny Burge - Dec, 2019

  • Gorgeous, comfortable house that couldn't get any closer to the water. Great location, amazing starting point for morning runs or bike rides and can go out on the water from the front of the house. Lovely Christmas getaway, thank you! Thanks very much for a wonderful Christmas. The house was gorgeous. Wished I had brought up my paddle boards and kayaks!

    Melanie Craxton - Dec, 2019

  • Lovely location, beautifully renovated house. Parking ok for one car. Tides make it interesting.

    Helen Mcewan - Jun, 2019

  • So sorry I missed the deadline to submit a review. The good news is I have a new healthy, happy grandson. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciate your generous hospitality.

    Barbara Kennedy - May, 2019

  • We have visited many VRBO'S all over the country including Europe, Peru, Argentina, US, and now New Zealand. This by far is the most beautiful and well maintained property to date. Everything about it is perfect and IMMACULATE, don't miss it we're glad we didn't. Best regards, from Florida

    Suzann Quesada - May, 2019

  • Great place to stay. Very family friendly.

    Hannah Owens - Apr, 2019

  • We absolutely loved staying at Monaco Waterfront Villa.It was a superb spot where we could relax while in Nelson for a family funeral.Loved the view and the house itself was spotlessly clean,comfortable beds and kitted out with everything we needed.We particularly loved the outdoor area where we spent much of our time.Thanks for having us.

    Peter Roborgh - Apr, 2019

  • Hi Sara and Team We loved our stay at Monaco Villa and would highly recommend. Will also definitely love to stay again next time we are in Nelson. What a fabulous place to stay. Beautiful character villa, peaceful, relaxing - and the most comfortable beds ever! Would highly recommend a stay!

    Sonja S Crone - Apr, 2018

  • Hi guy’s, Nelson certainly turned the weather on for us which was great. The cottage was an absolute delight to stay in, the linen was lovely and it was spotlessly clean, the front door lock can be a bit tricky at times but apart from that it was awesome and just suited our family. I am glad we had a rental car though as I probably wouldn’t be to keen using mine to get over the sand. We would certainly recommend it to friends and stay again ourselves. Thank you, Kind regards,

    Nick & Elaine Wallace - Mar, 2018

  • We had an absolutely wonderful time in the beautiful waterfront setting! Thank you for all the little extras like fresh fruit, milk, shower gel, chocolate, etc a really a lovely surprise! I had the best mattress EVER and slept so well, I even made a note of the make and model so I can get one at home! The house has everything we could possibly need for our stay. We loved watching the tide come right in to the house fence. Luxurious linen, towels and the immaculately clean house were another blessing! Just a word of warning, make sure you can arrive and depart when you need to as the tides cover the access to this peaceful, relaxing holiday home. Thanks to the very efficient hosts who were great communicators, we will be back!

    Sally Scott - Mar, 2018

  • Great team to deal with, positive and professional service. Awesome accommodation - immaculate presentation and very very comfortable - we made good use of fully equipped kitchen as well as outdoor area with pizza oven and BBQ during our stay. Great place to stay.

    Sonya Gulik - Mar, 2018

  • Thank you so much for a lovely stay. The accommodation was so far beyond what we expected! We also appreciated all the extra touches, like the fire already laid in the pizza oven and l the fresh pancakes on arrival. The house was very well stocked with everything we could want and we did also enjoy the kayaks. Your advice about tides was helpful and no problems. If was a Mary Poppins visit - Practically Perfect in Every way!

    Emma Markwell - Feb, 2018

  • Thankyou, we were all very happy with your service. We enjoyed our holiday in Nelson and found the beach house a perfect base.It was clean , well appointed and very comfortable. We would not hesitate to book the house again and have already recommended it to friends. Best regards,

    Paul Matterson - Feb, 2018

  • Absolutely lovely. Thank you for providing a perfect setting for our stay in Nelson. The house is set on the waters edge but was far enough away from flooding. Lovely cosy home in a perfect location to relax and enjoy the surroundings. House was fully kitted and we felt spoilt with lots of little extras you don't normally expect.

    Richard Bendall - Feb, 2018

  • Hi Team Firstly let me apologise for my outburst on our arrival, but man did we get a shock and my major concern were the two elderly ladies that were staying with us. The property was lovely and definitely suited our needs for 6 adults each having their own shared bathroom amazing, and once we understood the tides we had great fun organising our days. Our property manager who lived behind the Villa was just an awesome help and couldn’t do enough for us, what a charmer he is. I have a couple of ideas for improvement especially when you get southlanders staying who are not used to the heat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A couple more fans in the property would have been great to help cool down the rooms at nite. (not complaining just a suggestion). Also maybe a more visible notification and explanation of the tides on the website would be of help to future clients. We have booked these properties in the past and have never been disappointed and let me say this time we were not disappointed either, I would recommend this type of accommodation to anyone looking to book a great holiday. Again my sincere apologies. Look forward to booking another bach in the future. Cheers Maxine and Team.

    Maxine Wills - Dec, 2017

    Hi Maxine and Team, What a relief - we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! Lester asked us to let you know that he's fixed the steps with cement. A fan will be added, but you were of course welcome to use the air-conditioning. We'll also review the tide information on our listings. ?Thanks again, Jarrod, Peta-Jane, Sara, Lester & Patsy :-)

  • We had a lovely stay. We were greeted by our host who made us yummy pancakes. The house was sparkling clean and had ample space for 4 adults and 3 children. It had all the amenities we needed, even towel warmers and heated blankets. The view was beautiful and there were two kayaks that were available for our use. The house also had beautiful artwork that are available for purchase. The host had a house manual with helpful local tips. Also a Convenient location. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to others. We had a wonderful time. Thank you!

    Felicia Duenas - Nov, 2017

  • Lovely location. We loved the personal welcome touches when we arrived. The deck is a great place to watch the world go by and the tides ebb and flow. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for 6 adults. Very well equiped and although we didn’t use the outside pizza over , a lovely outside area for summer evenings..

    Belinda Caulfield - Oct, 2017

  • Hi there We loved the Monaco Waterfront villa. It is beautifully appointed with all that you can possibly need. Gorgeous position and so quiet for these Aucklanders used to the noise. We loved it. It was perfectly situated for visiting family in Stoke. We will definitely stay again. The bathrooms were awesome.

    Margaret and Darryl Jensen - Sep, 2017

  • Our stay was really enjoyable. The home was beautifully presented and very comfortable to live in. Everything provided was of an extremely high standard. The view and outlook are second to none.

    E Perriam - Sep, 2017

  • Recommended for your next stay in Nelson, this house is located in a great spot. Fantastic well equipped comfortable home. Very warm and spacious. Location does not face north so we didn't to enjoy as much sunshine as we had anticipated but the view was still gorgeous

    Rachel Shaw - Jun, 2017

    Thank you Rachel for your great feedback. We are really glad that you enjoyed your stay. While winter sun is not as great as we wish, we hope that you found the general area sunny and we hope that you'll return in the warmer months when the home enjoys excellent sun.

  • "Excellent location, well equipped, spotless!"

    Tomas Kohn - May, 2017

  • Gorgeous place, we weren't expecting it to be so silent which was just what we needed. Seagulls lazily flapping past during the day, the most incredible view and THE MOST COMFORTABLE BED IN THE WHOLE WORLD! :) Please ensure the tv is plugged in next time.. took us a while to find the power source.. Thank you so much for the chocolates in the fridge. Shampoo would be a nice touch too. Would not hesitate to come back again and have already recommended it to our friends here in Australia!"

    Amy Myhill - Apr, 2017

  • Hi Jarrod, Peta-Jane and Sarah We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend in Monaco. Your Waterfront Villa is gorgeous! The photo's simply didn't do it justice. So beautifully decorated, comfortable and well equipped. And what a fabulous location....we didn't want to leave! Thanks so much and we will definitely be back next summer. Cheers.

    Nicky and Mark Smith - Mar, 2017

  • Dear Jarrod, Peta-Jane & Sara, I run out of superlatives to describe how much we enjoyed our stay at your wonderful house. Everything was spotless and in perfect condition, the rooms delightful, the beds very comfortable, the kitchen supplied with everything (and more), the bathrooms ample and with excellent and sufficient towels, the porch and its views (especially during high tide) a real pleasure, and the decor enjoyable and appropriate. Great place to go for leisurely walks. If someone is looking for the perfect B&B in the perfect location, this is it. Warm regards,

    Tomas Kohn - Mar, 2017

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Monaco Villa. It is a great place and fully equipped with everything we needed. The view is great. The Villa was immaculately clean and well appointed. We certainly appreciated the fresh jug of milk and chocolates waiting for us in the fridge. The beds were very comfortable and the linens and towels were lovely. We would highly recommend your place to anyone and if we are ever back in Nelson, we would love to stay at the Villa again! Thanks so much,

    Debbie Snow - Feb, 2017

  • We loved the house and had a great stay. There was plenty of room and everything was very clean and beds had lovely linens. And we really appreciated the fresh hot pancakes on our arrival - nice touch!

    N Feletti - Jan, 2017

  • Gorgeous property, was sad to only have a few days there. The folder of information was really helpful. Could do with having wifi code in it as took us a while to realise it had been emailed!

    M Dockery - Dec, 2016

  • Hi Jarrod and Peta-Jane, Thanks so much for your lovely villa. We just loved it. Thanks for being so thoughtful about putting the boards up on the deck and having the cot up and ready for us. We had a great stay and are already talking about the next time we go down. We will most definitely want to return. Cheers for now, Mel

    M Parking - Oct, 2016

  • We absolutely loved every moment of our stay. We brought some friends with us to celebrate my husband’s 50th birthday, all of us thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house was spotlessly clean and everything we needed was provided. After our first night we all commented on what lovely quality the linen was, well actually I’d be lying if I said the men commented, but all us women were very impressed. If we come back to Nelson, which I hope we do, I would definitely stay there again. It’s so convenient to everything and the view is amazing. Thank you so much for a fantastic weeks break from the Auckland craziness.

    M Smith - Aug, 2016

  • We really enjoyed the villa, it was a great spot! We've now found the perfect base for when we come to Nelson for work or play.

    K Clarke - Mar, 2016

  • Thanks for a lovely stay.

    M O'Keefe - Mar, 2016

  • We had a fantastic stay at the Monaco Waterfront Villa. It was more than we expected and was so comfortable and had everything that we required. Being on the waterfront was great, so quiet and watching the birds feeding was a bonus. We recommend this villa to stay at as we did not want to leave.

    R & V Passey - Feb, 2016

  • Fantastic property in a standout location. The view from the verandah blew our visitors from UK away. A very special place to spend some time.

    S Crosweller - Feb, 2016

  • Thanks again for staying, the feedback and for letting us know about the wasps :-)

    S Williams - Jan, 2016

  • Hi Jarrod We had a lovely time in Nelson - so glad you recommended this home, the photos did not do it justest as such a nice place and so clean, with so many extras to make you feel welcome Everything went smoothly and would certainly recommend you and the home to friends etc. Many thanks

    C Pickett - Nov, 2015

  • Great place to relax and watch the world pass by.

    P Kennelly - Mar, 2015

  • Great people to speak with, all questions and inquiries were answered straight away. Absolute professionals but still made you feel like family. Immaculately clean, lovingly looked after property. We felt like we were staying at the family bach, but it was spotlessly clean and every possible amenity was provided. Our new favourite place to stay by far. We hope to be back again because it was superb. I absolutely recommend this property.

    L Lukasewich - Mar, 2015

  • Lovely character villa, very clean and comfortable. Good location too.

    S You - Nov, 2014

  • We loved the location and the house was very comfortable and well appointed. The only thing we would have liked was the option of an inside table for meals. The outside table on the deck was wonderful, though, when the weather was warm and sunny (which it mostly was!). Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

    E Barrett-Whitehead - Oct, 2014

  • Lovely property for 3 couples with a fantastic quiet outlook.
