  • This house is absolutely beautiful. Very spacious and open and we all had plenty of room to move around each other. It has great amenities, and everything was tidy, clean and welcoming. Lovely beds! It is in an excellent location not far from Nelson town centre and has breathtaking views across Tasman Bay. We would definitely recommend this accommodation and would stay here again if we are in Nelson.

    Liz Nelson and Friends - Mar, 2024

    Michelle G. - Mar, 2023

  • dear all the stay was perfect I was there for business with one of my colleague from HK I choose the apartment instead of the hotel, just to have the view I like to do work and when I arise my head, have a good panorama This was the case for your apartment The apartment is immaculate, all perfect We never had food at home only some light breakfast with fruit and biscuit The only thing I found tricky is to find the key to enter the house. It is a system which is not used in my country Switzerland However for the stay the final comment is 10/10 Bravi Alberto S.

    Alberto S. - Nov, 2022

  • Kia ora Holiday Nelson team, Honestly we had the most amazing stay at Above The Cut. The house surpassed site photos. The facilities were perfect and catered to all our needs, and some. It allowed us to have a wonderful early Christmas with family. Loved the location, waking up to those views, comfy beds, and layout. We would definitely come back if the chance arises. One small note, noticed there was little to no gas on barbecue, so may need a refill. Thank you and kind regards Nigel and family

    Nigel M. - Dec, 2021

  • Hi team, We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Nelson and at Above the Cut - review as follows: Excellent location, close to the city and the beach with stunning views of the ocean from the open plan lounge, and out on the large deck. Spacious house, plenty of room for our family (with 2 teenage boys), well equipped with everything you need from the coffee machine to the huge TV! Easy check in and out, with great communication. We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Above The Cut and upon our return to Nelson we would not hesitate to book again. Kind regards, Michelle.

    Michelle M. - Oct, 2021

  • Was everything that we expected from the listing This was absolutely perfect for our purposes. Would recommend this to our friends

    Ian B. - Sep, 2021

  • Great accommodation and would highly recommend! Kind Regards Scott

    Scott S. - Jul, 2021

  • A great spot and a great property

    Michael F. - Jul, 2021

  • Awesome home to stay in. The weather didn’t exactly ‘play ball’ while we were there but knowing we had such a well set up home with amazing views, meant staying indoors wasn’t a bad alternative. Very responsive hosts

    Robyn H. - Jun, 2021

  • Above the Cut surpassed our expectations. Clean and spacious, magnificent view, great location and attention to detail… all of which made our stay very comfortable. It was such a nice touch to have the luxury of an espresso machine and Netflix! Highly recommend this beautiful house.

    Shoba S. - Jun, 2021

  • Excellent choice, great value. We travel as a group from time to time. I was detailed to find the accommodation for this one and by common consent really nailed it. Thanks!

    Alastair S. - May, 2021

    Frances H. - Apr, 2021

  • The girls and I had a great time at your beautiful holiday home loved waking up to the beautiful view and we are all very keen to come back and stay again thanks Paula

    Paula J. - Apr, 2021

  • Wonderful Stay, recommend Property was exceptional. House was spotlessly clean with everything we needed. The ‘least’ of the bedrooms was sunny and bright with comfy bed and bedding, just like the rest of the bedrooms. In other words exactly what you would want in accommodation.

    Collean L. - Apr, 2021

  • This was perfect for our group. There was absolutely everything we needed, it was spotlessly clean. We loved the view and it was a very spacious property. Amazing shower too!

    Audrey - Mar, 2021

  • It is a modern house with fantastic view and nice kitchen. Although it is located on the hill, it is very convenient to go shopping, just 5 mins drive to the supermarket. It has an absolutely fantastic view, a nice kitchen with a coffee machine and cooking facilities. One of the bedrooms can also view the sea. It is really a nice experience for us. We all love this house.

    Jinling - Mar, 2021

  • Great property and stunning views

    Peter - Mar, 2021

  • Hi The house was fabulous and we would definitely stay there again. Thanks Di

    Di N. - Mar, 2021

  • Hi Team, Really enjoyed our stay...what a great time to arrive with a classic, that view is special. Great facilities, felt like home away from home, and could totally relax. Loved the amount of space both indoors and out. Only suggestion...we couldn't find the instructions for the coffee maker...not a biggie. Many thanks. Nick

    Nick B. - Mar, 2021

    Thanks Nick, Really glad that you enjoyed your stay and glad you got to enjoy the sunset! :-) Coffee machine - we do have a laminated card of instructions for this. It's supposed to live behind it on the bench (but it does wander during some stays). But you should have just given us a call or email! It's easy once you know how, but if you're a first-timer it would be tricky! Thanks again, Jarrod and the rest of the team here.

  • The house is stunning. Exceptional views from the balcony and the beds were really comfy.

    Amanda W. - Mar, 2021

  • Great holiday accomodation...comfortable, well-equipped, with outstanding elevated views across the Nelson Harbour entrance (The Cut) & Tasman Bay. Close to Tahunanui Beach, the waterfront, & Nelson city centre. Very suitable for extended family get-togethers...our stay was to celebrate a family milestone birthday. Highly recommended!

    Chris H. - Feb, 2021

  • The views from this property are absolutely breathtaking and it also provides easy access to both the beach and town.

    Eric W. - Feb, 2021

  • Kia Ora Thank you for your beautiful accommodation. It was absolutely stunning we enjoyed a wonderful stay indeed. The home was clean, spacious, well equipped and the location was fabulous. The beds were comfortable, the showers were great, and so was the lounge/dining setting. We loved the old turntable and records, stunning like the views from the deck! We have nothing that disappointed greatly however we can recommend the following would be useful: The bbq didn’t quite fire up like it should’ve, beach towels and coasters. Thanks again, we loved it!!! Nga mihi nui

    Lynda V - Feb, 2021

  • This house was a great place to stay. Very comfortable, great views and was spotlessly clean. We would love to stay longer next time and would not hesitate to recommend the property and the Nelson Holiday Houses team.

    Audrey D - Feb, 2021

  • Lovely home with stunning views A lovely, clean, well set up holiday home. The views are stunning and it was great to sit out on the deck in the sun (when it wasn't raining...) or sit inside and watch the many boats, windsurfers and kayakers make their way out of the harbour. A very relaxing base to explore Nelson from.

    Kath G. - Jan, 2021

  • Excellent house with amazing views! Our second stay was as memorable as first. Great house with high standard of furniture and very well equipped. Outstanding views! See you again. Thanks guys.

    Jason Hilton - Oct, 2020

  • Amazing views and very comfortable space. Overall, everything about the accomodation exceeded our expectations. The place is spacious and stylish- the photos don't do it justice. There was good quality linen and very comfortable beds. When we struggled to start the BBQ the host was quick to respond and very helpful. Thank you Holiday Nelson, your service was outstanding :)

    Luce Lee - Oct, 2020

  • Could not have chosen a more beautiful BnB to stay at. The view was absolutely incredible! The place was lovely and clean and had everything you could need. Excellent coffee machine and I love that any food left behind goes to the foodbank. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone looking to travel to Nelson. The pictures just didn't do it justice - amazing. Thanks so much!

    Sammy Burnett - Oct, 2020

  • Hi guys Thank you for hosting us at "above the cut" in Albert Rd. We had a great time the property is in a great location with amazing views. The place was clean and the communication was great. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Loved being able to make an espresso in the mornings.  I am sure you already know this but the dining room chairs and a couple of the lounge chairs are a bit the worse for wear.  Thanks once again.  Frank

    Frank V. - Sep, 2020

    Thank you Frank, So glad you enjoyed your stay :-) Yes, we're on to the dining and living room chairs and have just given the go-ahead to a local craftsman for the recovering of all in new leather! Very much looking forward to having this done. Would love to host you again in future. Best regards, Jarrod and the team at Holiday Nelson

    Andy and Karen Munro - Jan, 2020

  • Once again HOLIDAY NELSON came to our rescue when we had a death in our family in the peak holiday season of January. They managed to find us two places that we could stay at which was fantastic. We have used this company for booking our Nelson accommodation for the past 5 years or more, excellent to deal with, professional, nothing is too much trouble………and best of all they are great people personally !!!! Cheers

    Steve Jenkins - Jan, 2020

  • GREAT LOCATION As advertised, spacious, clean and tidy and great location with an amazing view. Would recommend.

    Yvonne Parlane - Jan, 2020

  • Above the Cut was a “Cut Above” other Airbnbs I have stayed at. It was great to be left shower gel to use and the coffee machine was an unexpected surprise. The views were great and when not looking at them it was great to have Netflix and Apple TV. An Uber only costs $6:63 from city centre. The Holiday Nelson team were quick to communicate and answer questions. Thanks for an excellent stay.

    Richard Moras - Dec, 2019

  • This property suited our 8 adult (4 couples) group for the follow up relaxation after our 5 day Abel Tasman track. Stunning views, watching the boats and the tides, always something to see. Handy location to the city and restaurants and activities House was well appointed and had an easy layout for us, and the all important coffee machine. We made the most of relaxing on the deck watching the scenes on the water and the clouds, and the trails left by aircraft crisscrossing the blue sky. Loved our time here.

    Helen Warriner - Dec, 2019

  • The holiday home was spacious, beautifully furnished with clean crispy linen and to top it all, the view was amazing. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

    Pieter Neethling - Dec, 2019

  • Highly recommended. Fabulous place!

    Michelle Mason - Nov, 2019

  • Fabulous Experience The property was perfect for our needs. Amazing views but more importantly comfortable and great facilities. We felt we could really relax even though it was someone else's place. It was our first airbnb experience and although we werent sure how it would go, we would definitely do it again. Thank you for making it such a fabulous experience.

    Tilly Bromley - Oct, 2019

  • The best AirBnB we encountered thru our entire trip. Wonderful view and outstanding home! The hills are a challenge, but very close to the waterfront and nice restaurants. The best AirBnB we encountered thru our entire trip. Thanks for sharing your home!

    Charles Dan - Oct, 2019

  • Above the cut is a spectacular place to stay when in Nelson. The views are superb the house amazing. Above the cut is an amazing place. The view is breathtaking and the house exceptional. We only stayed a weekend but one easily can live here. We had a very good time.

    Matthijs And Janneke Van Wagtendonk - Sep, 2019

  • We had a great time at Above the cut. the expectations were high after reading the story and looking through the photos. But upon arrival those expectations were more than met. What an amazing place. We do realise we had the best weather you can wish for what made the amazing views superb. The layout of the house very good and very well suited for our traveling family of 6. Great BBQ a bit dark but ok who is using a BBQ early Sep. it is definitely a place we will consider if we come back to Nelson and also will tell our friends about. Some will already have seen some pics on FB I am sure. Thank you for letting us stay at this amazing place!

    Robert Halsey - Sep, 2019

    Stunning accommodation, great location wonderful hosts- stay if you can and you won’t regret it! The standard of accommodation far exceeded or expectations! The quality of everything, the view, the balcony all amazing!! The hosts were incredibly responsive and helpful. Thoroughly recommended!! We would stay again in a heartbeat!! The area is hilly which means the views are incredible but the walk can be a bit challenging.
    Holiday Nelson
  • Five of us came to stay in Nelson for a long weekend, and experience what Nelson had to offer - the food, the wine, the cycle track and some the local sights. The house was great for us. Big enough for us not to fall over each other, a well provisioned kitchen so that we could both eat in and out. And a stunning view.

    Simon Dixie - Sep, 2019

  • Awesome stay thank you! Feedback reply as requested. But brief due to very busy time for us! Above the cut was wonderful as usual we loved how clean the windows/balustrades were given the view is a big part of the appeal in this home. Comfy beds great kitchen & loved the coffee machine! Downstairs was cold due to time of year and minimal heating downstairs this would have been perfectly fine had there been an extra blanket available but I couldn’t find a warm blanket only a cotton sheet like blanket. We ended up using the other bedroom downstairs for my daughter as it was windy during our stay and there was a tree scratching on the exterior of the west facing upstairs bedroom. Thank you for extending our stay two nights great to have your help with this Sara!

    Janine Bell - Aug, 2019

  • The location for this property is amazing. This is one AirBnB photos don't do it justice. The sunsets are worth the price of admission alone. Incredibly clean and well cared for property. The hot water cylinder died while we there and Rob and the team somehow managed to get it replaced in 12 hours - not easy to do in small town New Zealand. Great experience and great care and support from the Holiday Nelson team.

    Andrew Taylor - Jul, 2019

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Nelson, and your lovely property made our family stay all the more enjoyable. The facilities were all top notch, and suited the extended family staying perfectly. The views of the changing seascape were a delight, whether first thing in the morning or for the amazing sunsets.

    Neil Jackett - May, 2019

  • Hi Guys, Once again the Team at holiday Nelson gave outstanding customer service. We love this place “Above the Cut”………… great views, quiet street, easy parking…..the location is excellent. Cheers Steve & Anne

    Steve and Anne Jenkins - May, 2019

    Marsha Sokoloff - Apr, 2019

  • This is an wonderful place to spend a week in Nelson. I must have looked at 50 houses on line. This turned out even better than the lovely pictures! The house is perched in such a way that the entire living room/dining room/kitchen has an amazing view of the water, including lovely sunset views. Kitchen is modern and well appointed. Great Wifi, TV entertainment system. Best beds in our 3 month stay in NZ. Great bathroom/showers. Comfortable living room and even had a little office with desk downstairs. Only 5 minute drive to Nelson Centre or the beach. Quiet neighborhood. Easy parking. Reasonable price for this level of accommodation. Good communication from host management co. Fantastic choice! This is a fantastic home with pretty much everything we needed to have a great stay. Loved the photos on the wall.

    Richard Goldberg - Mar, 2019

Absolutely loved your house and the view was awesome!

  • A wonderful place to base yourself for adventures in the Nelson Malborough region. The property has stunning views out over the Bay and harbour. The house has great amenities and most of the basics are on hand for you to enjoy.

  • We loved our stay at this property in Nelson. The house is beautiful, with amazing views, and is close to the town centre. The house was sparkling clean, bedrooms spacious, and the place is stocked with everything you could need. The hosts are very professional and communicative and make the process very easy. Would return.

  • Hi All~ We all of us have enjoyed The Above Cut soooo much!!! Want to come back again definitely

    Eyong Lee - Dec, 2018

  • The hosts were kind enough to offer their place for our stay after our previous accommodations had cancelled. They were great about communicating with us and getting things straightened out before our visit. The property was beautiful and clean and the views of the ocean were amazing especially with their full length windows and spacious deck to enjoy.

    Laura McVicker - Dec, 2018

  • Clean and stylish place. Location is decent, near city center and comes with the view of port Nelson. Lovely place to just chill and hang out with the family. Only point to take note for the elderly or people with very young children, you will need to climb a short flight of stairs with your luggage. The rooms are split into 2 levels as well. Thanks for hosting us, we enjoyed our stay

    Jenny Bentley - Nov, 2018

  • Wow , presentation, view, location & parking was excellent. Our bed and pillows were so comfy. I think there were different mattresses to choose from, - the in-laws had a firm bed and ours was softer mattress which we like. Wish it was our home..

  • Hi Jarrod! I have “holiday nelson” in my to do list as I wanted to email you to thank you so much for all the games you bought!!! Very spoiled!! They were all fantastic and we used them all. Good fun! It kept us super entertained. The house was beautiful, big space, incredible views, super comfortable. It worked very well for us, and we certainly enjoyed the city life

  • Hello Sara Had a fantastic Easter in Nelson – wow what a great place and the prefect house to stay – felt very lucky to have chosen the right spot. My family approved !! Fantastic property - is so much better than the photos. Very Clean and tidy, has a large living space with breath taking views from a very generous balcony. Great outdoor entertaining area. Bedrooms and bath room very spacious. Close to town and walk ways , really steep climb but work the view. Absolutely loved our stay , sadly to leave

    R & J Alexander - Apr, 2018

  • Dear Sara, As written earlier, we found the house very tidy and clean, all the equipment is above standard, the view is perfect and the location so closed to town. This is the kind of place I would consider to purchase if it was on sale. All the notice were clear appart the lounge heater that took us time to put on the right settings (found the instructions in the draw). Roof light in the master does not work as well as two lights above TV. Thanks for sharing this wonderfull place. Regards. Osl

    Olivier Louis - Apr, 2018

    Thank you Olivier, Really glad that you enjoyed your stay here :-) Thank you too for pointing out the difficulty you had with the air-conditioner - I guess you had to switch it from cooling to heating when the temperatures dropped suddenly. We'll make sure to add this to our in house information. Thanks also for alerting us to the lights - we'll check and replace these :-)

  • Absolutely amazing batch in so many ways. We will definitely use the batch again. The place is well looked after and modern with more than you need. Probably the cleanest holiday home we have stayed at and we are a little over the top on this front. Top marks and see you again soon.

    Karen Collis - Jan, 2018

  • Beautiful home - we enjoyed our stay very much. Happy holidays! This home offers stunning views of the coastline and is a beautiful throughout. Modern amenities, fully stocked chef’s kitchen, spacious living spaces. Quiet neighbourhood close to town.

    Tabitha Gaustad - Dec, 2017

  • Thank you very much for being such a great host. We had an amazing time in this luxurious home - it was professionally run, extremely clean and well equiped. Thank you - Holiday Nelson's place is just amazing!!! Apart from stunning views from the lounge and the balcony, the location is probably one of the best in Nelson. The house is professionally run with lots of information and easy check-in process, it was extremely clean and is very luxurious with a well equipped kitchen. We stayed with 2 little kids and it was really safe. The house is on a steep hill, which made it a bit hard to go out with the pram, but easy to just take the car and drive to the centre of the town or the Tahunanui Beach Playground and Natureland. We highly recommend this place and would definitely stay there again.

    Stefanie Sichter - Dec, 2017
