  • Lovely views from this property. But not ideal for large vehicles. Very hard to park vehicle. But managed to keep drive clear. The stairs inside not ideal if you 6 foot and over. Our guys banged theirs heads a few times.

  • Highly recommend staying at 'Ocean Dreaming'. Was my first time in Nelson for a long time, and the views over the harbour from the deck and living spaces were phenomenal. House was lovely and clean, and the well equipped kitchen meant we could cook delicious feasts. Spa was a treat as well. The Holiday Nelson team were great help with a few admin wrinkles, and over all the stay was as relaxing and as restorative as I'd hoped. Would definitely stay there again.

  • We had a fabulous stay and adored the Bach, would love to return.

    Yvonne M. - Apr, 2024

  • beautiful place, amazing views. Had everything you might need and more, including pantry basics, games cupboard, hairdryer, umbrella, well equipped kitchen. Lots of heaters and heat pump kept us cozy. A short but steep walk down to restaurants and sea front. Quiet, peaceful location. Close to central city (5 min drive).

    Adrianne & Blake - Apr, 2024

  • Fantastische Aussicht, alles prima, gerne wieder :-) (Fantastic view, everything was great, gladly again :-))

    Gerd K. - Jan, 2024

  • What a stunning location, beautiful balcony and a lovely inside space. Felt very homely.

    Chris H. - Dec, 2023

  • Amazing views and great location! The interior is a little dated and some of the kitchen utensils could do with a good clean. Shower upstairs has poor water pressure but beds are comfy. Overall a good place to spend a few days in Nelson.

    Jens K. - Dec, 2023

  • We had a great stay here. The place is a little unusual in how it's laid out, but that' to be expected with an establish home on a steep hill. Part of the charm is that it's not a cookie-cutter condo. The bed we used was comfortable and of all the places we've stayed recently, it had the most useful full sized kitchen appliances and large selection of everything else you'd need to prepare food. The views were terrific and even though driving is required to get anyplace (unless you like very steep hills with narrow winding streets and no sidewalks), the harbor and central Nelson are just a few minutes away. They provided a link with recommended restaurants, and attractions. We enjoyed our stay very much and recommend it highly!

    Tim G. - Nov, 2023

    Thanks Tim, Glad you enjoyed your stay and grateful for your ideas - we'll implement both :-) Hope to host you again here some day.

    Lonnie C. - Feb, 2023

    We were only able to stay 2 days and wish we could have stayed longer. The road to the house reminded us of a windy San Francisco road. Views from the house were stunning.

  • A lovely home to stay in with our two children. The house was immaculate and the views were spectacular. The spa was a winner with the kids. We very much enjoyed our stay here and the host was amazing.

    Mary-Jane C. - Feb, 2020

  • 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!)
