  • 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
