  • Enjoyed our stay and watched in awe as a huge ship was tugged out of the harbour. Impressive ! Loved the instruction to leave left over groceries so they would not just be tossed.

    Rosalind - Dec, 2020

  • The place has a beautiful view of the ocean. Efficient communication with the host. Definitely very helpful! This is our second time staying at a Holiday Nelson property. We really enjoyed it!

    Ken Lee - Mar, 2020

  • Amazing house. Absolutely perfect.

    Tony Norris - Feb, 2020

  • A nice house in a convenient position for restaurants, we had a very nice time!

    Valentina Marcon - Dec, 2019

  • Really nice Nelson property with a lovely view, and everything that you need for a comfortable stay. Would definitely stay again. If you're staying with very young kids, be aware that the stairs aren't totally ideal, and the dining area is carpeted.

    Rose Forster - Oct, 2019

    Hello Rose, Thank you so much for your nice feedback. This home is normally not suitable for young children because of the stairs. But we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Anchorage View and your time here in Nelson. :-) It's been our pleasure to host you and we'd love to host you again if you are coming back to the Nelson/Tasman area sometimes. Kindest Regards, The Team at Holiday Nelson

  • Hi thank you for providing us with a welcoming haven of comfort. Getting up the access way was a surprise but we mastered that very quickly. We needed to feel grounded as I was starting my new job on Monday and it meant that I was totally comfortable and secure about where I was. The three of us found the stairs a challenge but the reward of getting that amazing view was so good. A warm luxurious home we would recommend to others. Cheers, Te Wari, Ariana & Ronnie.

    Te Wari Carkeek - Oct, 2019

  • Anchorage View is a quirky old house with great views, interesting spaces and plenty of room for a family group. It was very clean and well equipped for self catering. We would go back again because it was so much more pleasant than a more sterile modern apartment. We appreciated the great supply of books and games and information about local attractions. We particularly enjoyed dinner at the Boathouse Restaurant which was a short walk away. We very much enjoyed our stay at Anchorage View. It was in a great position and well equipped with lots of thoughtful touches. we appreciated the sunshine and views in the upstairs room and the generous spaces in the rest of the house.

    Michele Sholl - Sep, 2019

  • The house as excellent, the photos really do not do it justice. I would recommend this to anyone staying in Nelson The house was excellent, thanks

    Benn Camber - Mar, 2019

  • This is a beautiful character home with a great view of the water from upstairs. We appreciated the hosts' recommendations for where to dine out. Recommended!

    Caitlynn Bailey-Cummings - Mar, 2019

  • Hi, We really enjoyed the home and wish we stayed longer. The home was great and the location was prefect. Morning coffee on the upstairs balcony was the best in all of New Zealand. Thank you, Joan

    Joan Wenglikowski - Jan, 2019

  • Great spot with great views. Good communication from hosts A little dated interior especially the kitchen but a dishwasher and new oven A fenced area out the back is good for containing the little ones Overall it was a good stay.

    Sarah Ostergaard - Jan, 2019

    Hannah Burnard - Jan, 2019

    A & N Stewart - Mar, 2018

  • Spacious comfortable house close to the city centre and waterfront - perfect for our needs

    Andy Taylor - Feb, 2018

  • Anchorage View is a great place to stay for a holiday. It is a perfect home away from home with a great view and a stone’s throw away from all the amenities that Nelson offers. The place offers a certain feeling of warmth and comfort and wonderful feeling of hospitality. It was easy to find and also away from the noise and din. Definitely recommend it!

    Raymond Soriano - Dec, 2017

  • Good communication and great professionalism. Great location, good size house. Beds comfortable, plenty of towels provided. Lots of information to see and do around Nelson and amazing Book collection!

    Penny Metcalfe - Oct, 2017

  • Hi, We had a lovely time at Nelson and the house we rented was really gorgeous and had everything we needed, and an added bonus of an exceptional view. My husband and my daughters were so comfy in the house we didn’t want to leave. Thanks so much

    R Falconer - Jan, 2017

    Thank you Rosemary - so glad to have had you and the family stay and have such a great time! We hope to host you again someday soon :-)

  • Thank You we had a lovely stay. We enjoyed the view with all the arbour activities.

    E Botha - Jan, 2017

  • We had a lovely time in Nelson and really enjoyed our stay at Anchorage View. Would recommend both your good services and the accommodation. Only negative was the lack of SKY TV.

    L Lennie - Mar, 2016

  • I can not say enough about this wonderful property. The attention to detail is noticeable in every area of the house--cleanliness, coffee and milk provided for our morning breakfast, and plenty of soft, warm towels in the bathroom. Of particular note, when we arrived, late at night after having taken the ferry from North Island to South, and then driven another 2 hours to Nelson, we found the house with lights on welcoming music playing. Once we selected bedrooms, having a soft robe to put on was simply wonderful. The views from the top floor while enjoying our morning coffee was just stunning. All I can say is 'WOW'. We never wanted to leave. Thank you all. You can be sure we will highly recommend your home to our friends. We do hope to visit again. Our very best regards, Bari, Brenda and Bronwyn

    B,B & B Duda - Feb, 2016

  • AV Barbs Corlett feb 2016 HI There had a great time in Nelson, Loved the house which just has every thing one needs when do we get the deposit back cheers

    B Colette - Feb, 2016

  • Thanks, we had a lovely stay at your place and enjoyed the property very much.

    C Rohr - Jan, 2016

  • A delightful place to spend more time than just two days. We all loved the 'old' house features and the improvements too... Extremely comfortable beds and space available to spread out and enjoy relaxing times outside and in. Especially liked the upstairs retreat with fantastic views. Home furnishings , eclectic and interesting, demonstrating owners tastes and travels, excellent library wish we had more time to read. Thank you very much for such a welcoming place to depart from for our less comfortable, but exciting able Tasman walk.

    Tony, Marg + Robert & Alison - Feb, 2015

  • Fantastic and very relaxing place to stay. Very central to the best areas of Nelson. Highly recommend a trip to Abel Tasman (wether walking, kayaking or sailing) also the Marlborough sounds was absolutely beautiful. For a relaxing weekend activity we recommend the paddle boarding at Tahuna Beach. And a big thanks for the muffins!

    Nicole & Hendryk - Feb, 2015

  • The attention to detail was wonderful from the moment we walked in we were in comfort and impressed. We’d highly recommend a trip to Abel Tasman sailing from Nelson. Bridge Street Suter art gallery with its wonderful garden cafe for cake and The Lovely Queens garden for lunch. A 30 min walk to the centre of NZ is worth the viewing over the whole of Nelson city. The city Museum and cafe well worth a visit too.

    Nancy et al - Jan, 2015

  • A very good moment in a cosy place, in French for future French guests- Maison chaleureuse, vie agreable nous avons apprecie l’accueil prepare, muffin et boutuille de vin.

    The New Caledonians - Jan, 2015

  • From the moment we stepped foot inside we were impressed! We greatly appreciated the thoughtfulness and attention to detail as well as the kindness. i.e.freshly baked muffins on arrival and the waft of lavender as we walked in the door. We loved our stay here and would highly recommend it to our friends as a superb place to stay. I especially valued the presentation and the cleanliness-thank you so much -this is a beautiful place to be. PS. Recommend Harbour Lights Bristro-fabulous food! 10/10 just let them know you are booking from Anchorage View. Trip to Kaiteriteri and Abel Tasman a definite.

    Warmley et al - Jan, 2015

  • We had a great couple of days I. This lovely house wish we could of stayed longer. We managed to fit in a lovely cruise around to Abel Tasman, highly recommend it!! Thank you for a great stay!

    Alison & Family - Jan, 2015

  • Was a fabulous place to stay, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Nelson . So easy to get to Abel Tasman Park and the market in Nelson on Saturday was a delight. Highly recommend the beach Cafe for fine dining experience in a cafe and we all enjoyed the take away fish and chips at the quayside, just a short walk from Anchorage View. Thanks for a great stay.”

    Alaistair & Family from Dorset - Dec, 2014

  • Thank you for a delightful few days at Anchorage View. We appreciated all the attention to detail in the property itself and also to make us feel welcome. Definitely a highlight of what has been a great trip to New Zealand overall. Thank you

    Eve, Lea, Brian and Tania - Nov, 2014

  • Anchorage Views was fantastic. A delightful place to spend more time than our 2 days allowed!
