  • Beautiful view. We loved this apartment. We stayed for 3 weeks. Great appliances. Full size washer and dryer. Great kitchen and large bathroom with a big tub. And most especially the view. Since we were there for an extended time we spent many days just enjoying the balcony and the view. BRING BINOCULARS. Great off street parking which is very important in this area of steep, winding roads.

  • Kia Ora, To whom it may concern, Thank you for your email. We were delighted with Kimberley One, it was just perfect for our needs and the view from the deck out over the bay was spectacular and a real treat for us. I hope the owner or the neighbour, whoever the trees in front of the property belong to, doesn't let them get too high and obstruct the view as it's a real selling point. The location was also fantastic and we took advantage of walking to Nahm one night for dinner. I would highly recommend anyone coming to Nelson to try them out as the food was amazing and the service really really good. The communication with Holiday Nelson has been very clear and timely and I appreciated your answering my questions in our earlier emails. The instructions for Kimberley One were clear and to the point which was appreciated. Just one thing to note we did clean up a couple of reddish marks on the carpet by the couch on the day we arrived. Not marks we had made. They were easy to remove by blotting water and a cloth on them. Your cleaners must have accidentally missed these when they last cleaned the apartment. We spent a couple of days thoroughly enjoying exploring our old haunts from many years ago and the countryside too and would be delighted, if the opportunity arose, to come back again and stay at Kimberley One.

    Wendy R. - May, 2024

    Thank you Wendy! Glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for letting us know about the red marks and thank you for removing these! The neighbour is pretty kind in respect of keeping his trees trimmed for us, but occasionally we do have to remind him :-) Soon we'll be upgrading the cooktop with an induction one, upgrading the bathroom lights and utility cupboard light. Bit by bit we are trying to make the apartments even better. We would love to have you back again :-)

  • Perfect little apartment for any couple visiting Nelson. Stunning views of the bay from the balcony, all the amenities needed at hand and a quiet area. Also a fabulous location for a very short walk to the waterfront to several lovely dining options e.g. Nahm, The Beachhouse, Styx and for a bit longer walk in the opposite direction to Tahunanui Beach. If ever in Nelson we will definitely be looking to stay at Kimberley One again.

    Wendy R. - May, 2024

  • Great location, close to town with nice views of the harbor. Walking distance to a few restaurants.

    Jim A. - Apr, 2024

  • Dear hosts of Kimberley one, we very much enjoyed our stay here, with all we needed available. This is a well presented home with good attention to detail. Thank you. Pamela.

    Pamela C. - Mar, 2024

    Christine J. - Mar, 2024

    Lorna M. - Mar, 2024

  • My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay in the Kimberley 1 unit, which we found peaceful and well equipped. We really appreciated all of Jarrod’s help with our little issues at the beginning. He was extremely helpful and wonderful to deal with.

    Danielle H. - Mar, 2024

  • perfect little hideaway off the main waterfront, beautiful views and all the comforts of home. we will be back! thank you so much!! we had a lovely time

    Jacob S. - Mar, 2024

  • Perfect location for relaxing ! We loved our stay here…..very sheltered, all day sun, and close to everything Nelson has to offer. Fabulous views from the balcony overlooking the entrance to the harbour, watching all the comings and goings, even a cruise ship ! Spacious interior with everything you need.

    Nicola W. - Feb, 2024

  • My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay in the Kimberley 1 unit, which we found peaceful and well equipped. We really appreciated all of Jarrod’s help with our little issues at the beginning. He was extremely helpful and wonderful to deal with.

    Danielle H. - Feb, 2024

  • A great place to stay. Very clean and tidy with magnificent views of the bay and port with yachts, cargo ships and cruise ships coming and going all the time. Great to watch. Verygood hosts also.

    Graeme B. - Jan, 2024

  • Great stay thank you

    Lexie BP - Dec, 2023

  • Great little place with a view of the ocean and comfortably outside of downtown while still super close. Gotta have a meal at the Boat Shed.

    Steve B. - Nov, 2023

  • Thanks for a great stay, we really loved the apartment and especially the beautiful balcony views!

    Tina B. - Sep, 2023

  • Excellent location and accommodation. Good views of the harbour.

    Colin - Sep, 2023

  • We had a great stay at Kimberley 1. Our favourite part was meals on the balcony overlooking the water!

    Tina - Sep, 2023

  • Great views and close to all amenities. Good value.

    Robert P. - Jul, 2023

  • Perfect My husband and I loved this accommodation so much that while in Nelson for a second time we were relieved to see it was available to book. Great location, great views, clean, good use of space, warm and even quiet which surprised us no end considering how close it was to Rocks road. Thank you Kimberly One!

    Jennifer M. - Jun, 2023

  • Great location Views, Balcony Easy walk to Boatshed Cafe

    Julie M. - May, 2023

  • Lovely stay and everything was perfect, thank you!

    Tracey D. - Apr, 2023

  • Great place to stay - beautiful views and very comfortable. Enjoyed the boat shed cafe on the front a 100m from the property. Great to have flex of early check in and slightly late check out to help with logistics of car hire etc. thanks for a great stay.

    Paul S. - Mar, 2023

  • Great spot. We’d definitely stay there again. Loved the location and views, very close to great restaurants and a favorite local coffee stop at Sublime Coffee just down the road.

    Elizabeth E. - Mar, 2023

  • Absolutely loved this place. Great neighborhood, nice views, and very relaxing for multiple nights. The couch in the living room is not the most comfortable and the décor seems a bit outdated. Also the host is a company and tends to use email instead of the AirBnb platform which can be a problem at times. Apart from this I would definitely recommend that place. Had a great stay.

    Bob W. - Feb, 2023

  • Had a great stay here. Great views, peaceful location, a few minutes walk from a great restaurant on the waterfront and all you need in the apartment. A 30 minute walk into the centre of Nelson or a few minutes drive and parking in town is plentiful.

    Ruth W. - Feb, 2023

  • Lovely view! Nice space, if you want something on the water this is is a good spot.

    Jorie J. - Feb, 2023

  • We stayed in the Kimberley One apartment for two weeks. It was a classic beach rental apartment, clean and well-stocked. Having a nice balcony overlooking the sea made it even better, it added another room with a great view. Both the bedroom and living room had doors tot the balcony. Good location, walkable to Tahunanui Beach. The Holiday Nelson folks were AWESOME. We had the chance to meet them in person and they were so kind, friendly, helpful. Good communication by email and in person. At the end of our stay, they helped us get out of a jam of our own making, it happens with travel! We really appreciated that they went above and beyond with to provide excellent visitor care. Holiday Nelson would be my first choice for booking a return visit.

    Amy T. - Jan, 2023

    Thanks so much Amy - for staying and for your wonderful review. So glad we were able to host you and help at the end of your stay. All the best for the rest of your travels and we will hope to hear from you again when you are next planning to visit in Nelson :-)

  • My daughter and I loved our stay at Kimberly 1. We were greeted by Jarrod when we arrived. The kitchen had everything! We loved the views and sitting in the gazebo. Great place!

    Maggie W. - Jan, 2023

  • Terrific place near Abel Tasman While I wish, someone had told me that the primary route six between the ferry, landing/picton and townha Nelson was closed, this unit is wanting to stay at! A wonderful outside gazebo, and a view to beat all. Secluded, yet only 100 meters away from a main thoroughfare. The hosts have gone out of their way to help identify activities and things to do, with the Abel Tasman day hike only about a 35 minute drive away. Highly recommend this one!

    Bill S. - Jan, 2023

  • Our stay with you was wonderful. The units was perfect for our needs. It was clean and comfortable and offered a wonderful outdoor space. Also your response to our needs and questions were very quick and helpful.

    Ronald S. - Jan, 2023

  • We had a Really great stay here. Very helpful hosts and were always quick to respond to questions.

    Eoin G. - Jan, 2023

  • Lovely one bedroom apartment with great views. Would stay there again.

    Kathie and John G. - Dec, 2022

  • Absolutely lovely place. Recommend.

    Alexis G. - Nov, 2022

  • This place was a gem! Great balcony views and location. It was great having a comfortable king bed, kitchen to cook in and laundry. It let us reset and get well rested midway of our 3 week vacation. Would definitely recommend :) 'Thank you so much for accommodating our early check in. We loved your place :) it had everything we needed for a relaxing two days in Nelson.'

    Johnny C. - Nov, 2022

  • Jared is a truly exceptional host. Thoughtful, super responsive, extremely helpful. We are so impressed that we plan to be back to one of his properties. Kimberly 1 has a beautiful setting, we thoroughly enjoyed Nelson because of his advice and the view from the place. It had everything we needed. We witnessed that the appliances and furnishing were in the process of being upgraded.

    Connie & Bill S. - Nov, 2022

  • Beautiful location, great views. Parking is a little tricky as the driveway is on a hillside hairpin corner, but not a lot of traffic so ok if you are careful.

    Terry H. - Nov, 2022

    Thanks Terry, glad you loved the location and views! Parking here is easy once you realise how quiet the street is. Another trick is to make use of all that space on the opposite side of the road... just means you can reverse out and across and then head up or down the road with ease.

  • Great apartment and view Really nice place. Clean, comfortable and has a nice view of the sea where the boats go in and out. Well equiped kitchen too that not all places have. Great deck too

    Ross M. - Oct, 2022

  • Good location. Had everything we needed. Nice view.

    Donna C. - Jun, 2022

  • All to satisfaction. Place had all that was needed for a good stay of comfort. Bed and mattress were comfy. All appliances available for a good cooking experience (but we went out and can recommend the Boat Shed Cafe and Nahm. The first is a must, the second outstanding Thai).

    Ruth S. - Jun, 2022

  • Great location overlooking the bay convenient to restaurants and cafe.

    Jaime B. - Jun, 2022

  • lovely location, very easy place to stay, loved the view great view, loved the Mai Mai seating area

    Peter W. - May, 2022

  • Fabulous place, Fantastic attention to detail. Much appreciated

    David C. - Mar, 2022

  • Thank you for a great website, a great stay and great communication. Really appreciate having all the instructions correct, lower service fees and not having to clean the house when I have already paid a cleaning fee (bachcare……ggggrrrrr) I also like the personal touch where you ask a bit about ourselves, so the owners know who is staying, i think this is wonderful.

    Katia H. - Feb, 2022

  • V nice, well appointed, small property, with good access, parking and stunning view.

    David C. - Jan, 2022

  • Tucked back from the busy main road but close to city and beach with sheltered deck and great views- this was a perfect getaway spot. Well equipped for self catering complete with BBQ, and walking distance from great dining out. Facilities generally clean - a big black mark however being finding a full bin of rubbish in kitchen and a bag of food scraps left in the walk in wardrobe?! Fortunately there were no other glitches and we had a great holiday. Staff were very helpful and we would happily come here again.

    D Taylor - Jan, 2022

    Thanks so much for the great feedback Dionne. So glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to doing more over the year ahead to even further improve the stay experience here for guests :-) Thanks also for pointing our that we had slipped up, leaving the bin in the kitchen and food scraps in the robe! We only wish you'd let us know right away so that we may have taken care of this for you, so as to avoid having you take care of this for us! All the best and we do hope to have you here again in future :-) Jarrod - Holiday Nelson

  • Loved our stay.....the views are awesome,lounge area very good and bed super comfy. The supermarkets are only a 5 minute drive away. The kitchen facilities are very good and it was easy for us to make breakfast. We enjoyed sitting at the table eating with the lovely views in front of us. ...or out on the covered deck area.

    Eleanor M. - May, 2021

  • 100% A++, would highly recommend thanks for this our people loved it

    Jonathon F. - Apr, 2021

  • Really enjoyed the appartments. Location and price are its draw cards. Thankyou for reinstalling the outdoor chairs and table. Essential for our full enjoyment of the place. The balcony ,and those items plus the view are the real assets . No amount of interior updating can compete with these draw cards in our view . Thankyou again. Margaret

    Margaret T - Mar, 2021

  • An ideal place to stay, close to the city and the beach. Very relaxing and quiet. Very clean and well maintained. Would love to return.

    Margaret - Mar, 2021
