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.

    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

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.

    Ainsley Carter - Jan, 2019

  • 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

    Yen Siew Loi - Dec, 2018

    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..

    Zita & Chris Bezuidenhout - Nov, 2018

    Tasha Corrigan - Oct, 2018

  • 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 :-)

    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

  • Thanks Sara, Jarrod & Peta-Jane for a lovely stay in Above the Cut holiday home for the week over Xmas.
