    Vanessa S. - May, 2024

  • Would definitely return, excellent location, and beautifully maintained property

    Alison F. - May, 2024

  • We loved staying here. The views were amazing and the location close and convenient to good restaurants. The kitchen was very well stocked and beds were comfy.

    Barbara N. - Apr, 2024

  • Beautiful apartment for our stay in Nelson! We loved the views and walking down the hill to the waterfront. The unit is well represented and comfortable. Definitely recommend!

    Samantha R. - Mar, 2024

  • Phenomenal views, gorgeous interior and a relaxing stay. Highly recommend this Airbnb for people wanting a special stay in Nelson. Thanks for having us - could’ve sat in the two chairs facing out the window for days. Best views in Nelson.

    Dannielle H. - Mar, 2024

  • We loved our stay here!!! The apartment is very comfortable but what steels the show is the 180 degree view of the harbor. You can watch the boats and wind surfs going in and out, from the comfort of the living room or from the well appointed huge terrace. The terrace is facing west which allows for great late afternoon drinks until sunset! A very relaxing place that we highly recommend! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful apartment! That view is truly fantastic! We had the best time!

    Valerie S. - Mar, 2024

  • Fantastic view. As with views you have hills and steps. But really worth the 34 of them

    Mick M. - Mar, 2024

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can recommend to those looking for a beautiful view. As the owners noted, the roads and driveway are steep and a little difficult to sort out at first. But once you find the house the steep driveways add to the charm of being on a hillside looking out over the water. We liked the view so much we opted to have wine on the deck and eat in instead of going out to a restaurant. Great location to head to Abel Tasman one day and Marlborough wine country another day.

    Dave K. - Mar, 2024

  • This apartment is absolutely fabulous when can we move in Your house is wonderful we loved it

    Geoffrey D. - Feb, 2024

  • Exceptional views from a lovely apartment The view was exceptional and the apartment was well equipped with everything we needed. Nice furnishings and great location. It was so nice we wanted to spend as much time as possible there.

    Caroline M. - Feb, 2024

  • This is the most beautiful home. The views are incredible, with the sun setting right over the water and mountains. It was an absolute joy to stay here, and the house itself is clean and updated. I can’t recommend it enough. This has been our favorite stay in New Zealand! We spent hours reading outside or on the chairs facing the water. We’ve even talked about coming back from Los Angeles next year just to have a week to reset and relax. Thank you for your hospitality.

    David F. - Dec, 2023

  • As others have mentioned, it IS a very steep drive up with tight turns, but don’t let this put you off, as what awaits you at the end is totally worth it. The house and view are exceptional.

    Luisa D'L. - Dec, 2023

  • A great spot with fantastic views. The house was very clean and well presented, comfortable and well appointed.

    Richard K. - Dec, 2023

  • This is a beautiful property with amazing views, has everything you need and more. The hosts are very helpful and nothing was a problem. Will definitely come back . Kia ora koutou, thank for allowing us to stay at your beautiful whare. My wife who had no idea where we were staying was thrilled when we turned up there. Nga mihi Sean

    Sean J. - Dec, 2023

  • Absolutely stunning view, amazing unit, exactly what we were looking for :)

    Jack C. - Nov, 2023

  • Great view

    Joerg A. - Oct, 2023

  • Views are absolutely incredible. Worth every penny. Beds comfortable. Living area spacious. Owner does charge fee for early check in or late check out. I would stay here again.

    Cindi C. - Aug, 2023

  • Centrally located, with breathtaking views!!! Such a spacious living area, leading out to the deck with an indoor-outdoor flow.

    Sailesh - Aug, 2023

  • A nice place to stay for a holiday. Would definitely come here again We really enjoyed everything at this place. Everything was so clean and the view of this place was just perfect.

    Supaowwalax T. - Jul, 2023

    Matt H. - Apr, 2023

    Ed F. - Apr, 2023

  • Great spot.

    Tracy A. - Apr, 2023

  • Views, views and more views. Lovely amenities too.

    Linda L. - Apr, 2023

  • This accommodation is EVERYTHING I wanted and hoped for - even more so! I stayed for a two week sabbatical to have a soulful space to write... it was beyond PERFECT!!! I will definitely be back:)

    Julie A. - Mar, 2023

  • This really is a magic place. The only thing I would mention is it has an extremely steep street and driveway, and a couple of flights of stairs. So as long as you are fine with that, this place is magic.

    Lisa H. - Mar, 2023

  • This place was amazing! Clean, comfy, and cozy with spectacular views both inside and on the deck! Would definitely stay here again!!

    Jon K. - Mar, 2023

  • Amazing views and spotless apartment. Was very quiet and peaceful and private. Would highly recommend bug spray if wanting to dine outside. Bed was small and slightly uncomfortable however this was a minor negative highly outweighed by the stunning view, cleanliness and spacious apartment. Would definitely stay again

    Natalie C. - Feb, 2023

  • The view from this place is like a painting and it never gets boring. Famtastic views, amazing location with restaurants at the bottom of the hill. Would definitely stay again.

    Denise W. - Feb, 2023

  • great place! lovely views, clean and good facilities! views and house were lovely though.

    Catherine C. - Feb, 2023

  • This Airbnb was beautifully decorated and furnished. The view is incredible with large windows and comfy seats to enjoy it. There was one A/C unit and we used the fans to get air to the bedrooms. The driveway was very steep but manageable. We drove into town for coffee and food, because it wasn’t a walkable location.

    Aj C. - Feb, 2023

  • Beautiful space with a gorgeous view. The furnishings all feel high end and the kitchen and bedrooms are all well appointed. We loved having plenty of towels as well. This was a favorite stay of ours!

    Carol L. - Jan, 2023

  • We really loved the property and we had a really relaxing time. My husband would of loved a sunlounger to have a snooze on outside but that is obviously just a personal preference

    Gill M. - Jan, 2023

  • Great

    Alison T. - Jan, 2023

  • Amazing views and beautiful accommodation

    Maria B. - Jan, 2023

  • Stunning views and beautiful sunsets from the balcony. Very clean and modern with ample amenities. We loved our stay!

    Elizabeth S. - Jan, 2023

  • Beautiful house and absolutely mesmerizing view. Sitting on the deck of this house with a glass of wine in the evening, while taking in the view is priceless. Great experience. Only thing we had to get used to was the very steep driveway. But that got better with practice :-)

    Victor A. - Dec, 2022

  • The view from the desk was just amazing, we sat watching the sunsets and all the harbor activities each evening. There was no road noise and wonderful amenities in the rental. In all of our world travels, this is one of my favorite AirBNB locations. Thank you! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

    Carolyn A-M. - Dec, 2022

  • Amazing views made the access worthwhile. Spacious, clean and well appointed Great views and had everything we needed

    Annette H. - Nov, 2022

  • Lovely apartment with a stunning sea view especially the sunset! The host is extremely helpful and very responsive. Check in is very smooth. Will definitely recommend to anyone ! Will love to come back to stay again if we are in Nelson. 'The apartment is matched with your description. Thank you for letting us check in earlier and late checkout. Enjoy our stay in your lovely apartment !'

    Hie Sze L. - Nov, 2022

  • The views from this condo are truly unmatched! Everything was clean and my husband and I had no complaints. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was spacious, and the kitchen was equipped with everything that we needed. One piece of information I would give to someone looking to rent is that most restaurants and bars in this area are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. We watched the sunset on the deck with a bottle of wine but if you’re looking for a night out I would recommend other days of the week! Overall a great experience.

    Shaun C. - Sep, 2022

  • The best airbnb I have ever stayed at. Stunning views across the bay with a beautifully furnished apartment within walking distance to town. We absolutely loved the apartment. It was the best airbnb we have ever stayed at. Clean with a fully equipped kitchen.

    Caitriona P. - Sep, 2022

  • An amazing property, presented & maintained at a very high standard yet offering a very relaxed ambiance. An amazing accommodation, couldn't fault anything.

    Damien S. - Sep, 2022

  • We absolutely loved our stay. The house is gorgeous and the view is incredible. Only one thing – we usually find shampoo and conditioner, and didn’t take our own, so was a bit surprised it wasn’t included. Other than that it was 11 out of 10 and we can’t wait to stay again. Thanks so much Chrissy

    Chrissy C. - Sep, 2022

    Hi Chrissy, Thanks for your kind words and we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Harbour View 2. Definitely a great location and premium sea views!!! We have made the decision to only provide body wash in our Holiday homes mostly for sustainability reasons. Most of our guests only stay 2-3 nights and providing shampoo & conditioner generates a lot of waste + plastic containers. We might reconsider this if we can find an eco-friendly solution that would still come at a reasonable cost for our homeowners and clients. It's been our pleasure to host you :-) Kindest regards, Sara
    Holiday Nelson
  • Incredible views! We absolutely loved it and can’t wait to come again. So beautifully presented, modern and clean. The most amazing views ever! Such a treat!

    Chrissy C. - Sep, 2022

  • Accommodation is exactly like the gallery on the listing, great views, very spacious, clean and comfortable home right on the waterfront. Close to restaurants and we took a stroll to town which was approximately 2km away, there is lots to discover on foot. Great communication and a hassle free check in, our early check in request was easily accommodated . There are two flights of steps to climb to enter the house, something to be mindful of if you have someone elderly in your booking. We can't wait to come back and stay and have recommended to our friends who may be coming to Nelson. Thank you for the great stay. Really appreciated our stay, everything was on point, the pictures matched the accommodation. Probably the only thing was the driveway but that was minor. Thank you

    Lee H. - May, 2022

  • excellent and relaxing great views close to town

    Anna H. - Feb, 2022

  • Loved our stay x

    Anita P. - Feb, 2022

  • This accommodation enjoys an amazing location looking out over the waters of Tasman Bay to the mountains and as a result also to amazing sunsets. All seen from the large deck with comfortable furniture, shady umbrella and easy to use BBQ. Inside the property is well appointed and spacious. The Living room again has this amazing outlook, comfortable seating and good TV technology to log into your own channels. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped. Bedrooms are comfortable and we certainly had no problem sleeping after lots of fresh air and sunshine in the beautiful city of Nelson and surrounding national parks. I'd note the driveway is a bit daunting when you first see it but in reality easy to use.... and with the driveway you wouldn't get to view! We'd certainly look to stay here again

    David P. - Jan, 2022

  • The comfort and view was just perfect for us, everything there we needed and very handy to our places of interest.

    Jan M. - Jan, 2022

  • Hi Sara! Thank you so much for having us to stay in your wonderful home. We had such a great time in Nelson, we went to your favourite brunch spot and also Nahm restaurant for dinner - food was AMAZING!!!!!! We really appreciate your hospitality, will be recommending to friends and family and I’ll definitely be back!!!! This beautiful home is a must stay in Nelson! The location is incredible, with quality restaurants right at your door step, and of course the stunning view over the waterfront. Our host was fantastic to communicate with, everything was smooth sailing. Could not recommend this apartment highly enough, we will definitely be staying in the future. Warmest regards, Nicola :)

  • Beautiful accommodation

    Liezl C. - Apr, 2021

  • Thanks for a great stay, we enjoyed all aspects, after the initial shock of access! Views are magnificent and the house very comfortable. I left the can opener on the bench, as it was faulty. This was totally offset by the abundance of ice in the trays in the freezer! Thanks again

    Helen & Neville T - Mar, 2021

    Thanks for this feedback, we'll review our arrival instructions to make sure they are as clear as possible and we'll have the can opener double checked at the next turn over! :-)
