  • Incredible wee kiwi batch across the road from the Boathouse cafe. Spotlessly clean, cozy spaces, and a nice outdoor area made this place perfect for a weekend getaway. It is on a busy road, but we were aware of this when booking, and always found a car park out front. Thanks again! Thank you very much for the wonderful accommodation. It was exactly what we were after, and we will be sure to recommend it to our friends and family.

  • Great self contained unit with garden and sea views. Really made use of BBQ and garden - felt like staying at home! A couple of issues occurred that were out of the control of the hosts, but were responded to super fast and can't fault the service given to us in response to them.

    Richard Maylor - Jan, 2019

    Thanks again Richard and Pascal. It was great to meet you and a pleasure to host you. We hope you'll return to Nelson for another visit soon and it would be our pleasure to host you again :-)

  • A great place! It had character and beautiful views. Also a short walk to some great restaurants. Thanks for being a great host! We enjoyed the character of the space and the fact that we could walk to a few nice restaurants for meals. We also appreciated the ability to coordinate the check in on such short notice. Thanks again!
