Like most of Nelson this house is on a steep road but it comes with a carport that fits two cars. The home was well equipped with what you need for a stay away from home. Thank you. We had a lovely stay in Nelson.

  • We are regular visitors to Nelson from overseas…often visiting 2-3 times a year this past 10 years. Our go to place has always been Kimberley House Apartment 3. It has super views, is comfortable yet not too big and has off street parking. walking distance to the restaurants, including Boatshed, also to Guytons fish shop and the harbour. Just a few hundered metres from Rock’s Rd. Kimberley has always been well managed and the current owner/managers are always very attentive when needed and always responsive. Cannot recommend the whole package enough! Michael and Kate
