  • The Fifeshire property was ready and perfectly clean upon arrival; very nicely set up with more than enough towels and linens, and the kitchen had plenty of pots, pans, etc.. more than you might expect. Very nicely outfitted for a full month stay when you will do more cooking and really settle in. We had occasion to meet both Jarrod and Rob, who were first class. Well run operation from booking to payment to check in and departure. Not sure if this is on the website or house info, but it is about a 6 minute (4 if you hurry) walk to the bus stop on the 6 which is super-convenient. We had a car, but used the bus a number of times. Also, the house is just over the hill to downtown Nelson, easy walking distance. Thank you all for facilitating our great month in Nelson! Rebecca and Bill (and daughters Christina and Madison and son David too!)
