  • Beautiful views, fantastic location. Jarrod was a great host. Thanks for having us, we had a great stay.

    Rebecca H. - Jan, 2024

  • Great view and beautiful home with all the amenities including a high end espresso machine. Located along the Nelson waterfront but along a busy road (during the day). A bit far to walk to the town center from this home but easily accessible by car.

    Lisa S. - Mar, 2023

  • Fabulous home and location. Highly recommended, would definitely stay there again if the opportunity arises to visit lovely Nelson.

    Doreen M. - Mar, 2023

  • Excellent in many ways and truly wonderful views. Living area great and property very clean. Couple of issues with road noise and beds were too soft for those who like a firmer mattress.

    Jeremy H. - Jan, 2023

  • Hi Team Gorgeous property and the service from Holiday Nelson wonderful as always. See you all next visit. Best regards Alastair and Caroline

    Alastair and Caroline Leggat - Sep, 2020

  • What a wonderful house and location. The house was warm as toast upon arrival with the sun streaming in through the very large ranch sliders. (We couldn’t lock the ranch slider - the catch seemed faulty). The whole house was clean as a new pin, uncluttered and inviting. The beds were extremely comfortable - just didn’t stay long enough to fully enjoy them. The view - there anything better in Nelson ? We don’t think so. Really handy to eateries, all within walking distance. Whilst on a main road, we hardly noticed it. It’s low enough for road noise not to intrude and the glazing cut it completely. We were driving a Ford Ranger, so the garage space wasn’t long enough to park inside. We had to diagonally park as the Ranger is a big vehicle. Our problem....not yours ! Not sure how hot it gets in summer Inside as we don’t believe there is any cooling option on the heating system. A heat pump may be a good addition. (We did read the notes about opening the windows) 10 out of 10. Highly recommended. David & Anne Harley

    Thanks for your great feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your stay in this beautiful home! Sea Change has been architecturally designed to keep the house warm in Winter (pre-set very efficient underfloor heating and large bay windows to make the most of Sunny Nelson days) and cool in Summer (concrete floor, blinds, and large windows making it easy to ventilate the house). You'll have to come and try it in Summer!

  • Hello, We received a lovely welcome on arrival from Sara. The house was incredible, it had everything we needed and more. The views throughout the house we spectacular. We'd definitely recommend it to others and hope to visit again. Thanks Catherine

    Catherine M. - Feb, 2020

  • When you arrive at Seachange it is every bit as spectacular as it looks in the photos. The house has everything you could possibly need and more. The views from all of the rooms are incredible, you can spend ages just watching the boats come and go in the harbour. It is also ideally located for trips to Neslon Lakes and Abel Tasman National Park.

    Catherine Marks - Feb, 2020

  • Amazing place! We really enjoyed our stay! Thank you! Thanks so much we had a great stay!

    Chrystal James - Jan, 2020

  • amazing hospitality and a beautiful home. The views we're stunning too. thank you for letting us stay in such a beautiful home. we had a blast!

    Nic Mavrogiannis - Jan, 2019

  • Hi We had a fabulous stay. It was great to have a chance meeting with John the owner The only area I would work on is the heating and solar With no teenagers there was no long shows yet on two mornings only 3 of us could shower. A fantastic house clearly with rightly so “proud owners” ALAN

    A Lint - Oct, 2017

    Thanks Alan and very glad you enjoyed your stay at Sea Change. The home is designed to be more or less energy neutral with solar passive design and PV solar water heating. The showers here are high pressure and use water quickly so on rainy or overcast days it may be necessary to press the power boost button allowing the grid power to charge the hot water cylinder, particularly when showering in the morning. We'll be sure to run you through how this works next stay. Once again - thanks for staying with us at Sea Change :-)

  • Fabulous house. We enjoyed staying there and would do so again.

    Ross Harvey - Feb, 2017

  • Thank you so much for hosting us during our time in Nelson. We will never forget the incredible view and proximity to the water & activity upon it. We enjoyed very much the comfort of this exceptional home and we look forward to returning someday soon.

    D Rabanacci - Dec, 2016

  • Hi guys We enjoyed meeting all of you and really appreciate your kind help and enthusiasm guaranteeing a great and stress free trip to Nelson We liked sea change - fantastic location and nice modern architecture with that excellent view The proximity to rocks road made the place a little noisy and those upstairs thought some hooks or storage for clothes would have been useful Overall a ton of fun!

    P Gilleran - Feb, 2016

  • Thanks Paul, the main waterfront road is a popular route & it's a busy time of year on all of Nelson's roads. The city is looking at developing a new highway on the other side of the hill to increase the amenity of this beautiful waterfront area - let's hope that happens soon! Thanks again for staying & thank you for the request for hooks & storage - a simple & great idea & we can't understand how we overlooked this before! All the best for the rest of your travels & we look forward to welcoming you to Nelson again.

    Holiday Nelson - Feb, 2016

  • We had a lovely stay in Nelson, and thanks for your hospitality and warm welcome.

    L Salazar - Jan, 2016

  • Dear Jarrod, As property managers you were a pleasure to deal with. You provided a friendly welcome to the house, a thorough explanation of the systems and useful information on the environs of Nelson. The house was spotless-clean with delightful architecture and decor, spectacular harbour views and great functionality for indoor / outdoor use. The kitchen was fully equipped and it was a joy to use. We thank the owners for allowing us to use the pull out pantry for the small quantities of ingredients (spices, condiments, a spoon of flour et al) that enable the traveller to cook well and enjoy to delicious meals. In summary, it was a total pleasure to stay at the house and we would love to come back and book again.
