Restaurant across the road, also fish and chips shop if you want something delicious but simple. Highly recommend.

    Paul G. - Mar, 2023

  • Really enjoyed our stay here. About a 20 minute walk into Nelson's town. Very spacious for the 6 of us. Liked how there are 2 bathrooms. Was slightly noisy at night due to the port being opposite but nothing really to worry about.

  • Hi Team We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was amazing very peaceful, clean and quite. Even though a number of ships where loaded and unloaded during our stay the noise level was very low. We would certainly like to come back to Nelson and stay at the apartment. It was a pity that our stay was to short and next time we will stay longer. We would certainly recommend the appartments to our friends and family. Thankyou so much. Cheers Murray

    Murray B. - Apr, 2021

  • Lovely apartments, Great views despite the cement tank. very central , 5 minutes by car to City center and on the the 6 state road. Master bathroom is slightly small but manageable. 2 covered secured carparks were great. The building was very secure with Keytag entry use on doors , lifts, carpark entry/exit. I would stay again.

    Surendra P. - Mar, 2021

    Thanks Surendra - we're glad that you enjoyed your stay and that you would choose to stay again :-)

  • Perfect Location for a Break Would stay again.

    Lynell W. - Mar, 2021

  • This is a fabulous place to stay in beautiful Nelson. I stayed two whole weeks with four family members & the apartment had everything we could wish for. We had barbecues on the terrace, in the evening sunshine - just heavenly. There are also two car park spaces in a secure ground floor parking garage, so the cars were kept cool and safe. Thank you, Holiday Houses, for a wonderful domestic summer holiday.

    Carol S. - Jan, 2021

  • Thank you also for the wonderful stay we experienced.

    Joe F. - Jan, 2021

  • Kia ora koutou, We had a great stay at Sea Quest, thank you. Apartment was in a good location for trips into the city or going out exploring, being on SH6. The ability to walk to several good cafe/restaurants was great. Our group of 5 retired or semi-retired friends/colleagues found the apartment had almost all the facilities/basic supplies we could want. Apartment was clean, with an adequate supply of good linen. The parking was a plus...having 2 spaces. Our meet and greet introduction to the apartment and facilities was also very good. We would strongly recommend the apartment for other travellers wanting a base for exploring the region for several days.

    Sara, David, Louis, Frances and Lauri. - Dec, 2020

  • The apartment exceeded expectations. Loved the view of the water and much to see.

    Maureen Gillon - Dec, 2020

  • Excellent stay. Great staff to deal with and the apartment was really nice and clean

    Suzanne I. - Dec, 2020

  • Hi Thank you, we had a fantastic stay at Sea Quest Apartment. The apartment is lovely and spacious, and super clean. The balcony is huge and has an amazing view over the harbour and port. Highly recommend and can’t wait to stay again! Kind regards Lisa

    Lisa Fletcher - Nov, 2020

  • We really enjoyed our stay here, and would not hesitate to recommend this to others. It's so close to some great sea side eateries, and for us, an easy walk into the city when we wanted to. Secure parking was a key reason for us to book, and we were not disappointed. The apartment is exceptionally well appointed. We wanted for nothing. And the view from the balcony was better than the pictures. We spent a few nights dining on the balcony, and watching the sunset, rather than dining out - the view was that great. We will definately be booking here again. Thank you for a great stay.

    Lynnette - Nov, 2020

  • We had a lovely stay thank you all. The apartment was clean and supplied everything we needed. Everyone was very happy with our accommodation choice and we would rebook there if travelling to Nelson again. Thanks to Rob for the thorough rundown of the properties logistics.

    Della Henderson - Oct, 2020

  • Thank you. Outstanding apartment, beautiful views and great service from the host.

    Nick Raynor - May, 2020

  • Hi Guys, Thanks for your email….and yes we had a great time. Nelson was fantastic and we had great family catch up. The apartment was a really good space for us …5 adults together for 10 days can be challenging even if we are all family. We cooked a couple of times, used the BBQ and all the facilities. Everything we needed was there. No complaints at all. The view and the balcony were very well used…!! Would highly recommend to others and definitely stay again if we come back to your part of the world. Thanks again, Regards, Kevin Lampard

    Kevin Lampard - Jan, 2020

  • A fabulous apartment - Spacious, beautifully decorated, comfortable beds with everything we needed for self catering, and a great view of the waterfront. Our family loved staying here. The management were very friendly and super efficient. Hope to return!

    Tania Davies - Dec, 2019

  • Hi Team As always a great service thankyou so much.Sara thankyou for showing us Above the Cut Regards Alastair

    Alastair Leggat - Sep, 2019

  • We were extremely pleased with everything about Holiday Nelson's service, before and during out stay. You helped us arrange our long stay with the minimum of fuss, and even helped us move out of Sea Quest (formerly Seaside Luxury) to our next apartment in the Latitude 41 building. Apartment 34 was ideal for our purposes. It was in good condition and all the appliances worked fine. It had everything we needed, including a wok-style pan and a decent sized coffee press. The only kitchen things we picked up were a stir-fry spatula, a serrated knife, and chopsticks! (Believe me, that's nothing compared to what we've needed at some other places.) The initial kitchen, laundry and bathroom supplies got us off to a good start too. It was configured just right, and although there was a small amount of noise from the port it was high enough to minimize the road noise. The beds were comfortable and so was the rest of the furniture. We didn't actually use the BBQ, but were glad to have the option. The one small repair that we needed, to a light switch, was done promptly. We also made use of your recommendation of Hardy Cars for car rental, and that has worked out well too. If we return to Nelson in the future, your list will be the first place we look to find accommodations, and we will pass on this tip to friends.

    Adrienne Stevenson - Mar, 2019

  • A very comfortable stay. Big living area with good size bedrooms. There are some very nice restaurants nearby as well. A lovely balcony on a sunny day. You will enjoy your stay here! Hey. Had a pleasant stay. Many thanks. Great space and well presented.

    Neil Dicker - Mar, 2019

  • Comfortable, spacious, clean, well equipped. Amazing views and very handy to town.

    Shirley Jones - Mar, 2019

  • We very much enjoyed our stay in this apartment. The apartment is clean and well appointed and is situated in s very convenient place for the holiday maker. We had some lovely walks around the hills and along the port road. A great place to stay.

    Judy Stableford - Dec, 2018

  • Nice location. Easy access to town center and restaurants

    Calvin Chuang - Oct, 2018

  • This is a wonderful spot to sit and enjoy the bay. It was a spacious home. We enjoyed the air conditioning and the balcony. We greatly enjoyed the space.

    Fay Brown - Mar, 2018

    Paul Fuller - Mar, 2018

  • All good. Fabulously appointed place. Had a great time and likely to return. Hello! We have had a fantastic time staying at your lovely seaside apartment! The apartment was beautifully clean and warm. The views were oustanding and the location was perfect. Sara was lovely and friendly and helpful too. We enjoyed it so much that we are wanting to book another stay!

    Nick Dent - Jul, 2017

  • Hi Jarrod, Peta-Jane & Fawn, Thank you for contributing to making our trip to Nelson memorable. The location of the apartment was absolutely perfect, we enjoyed especially the sunsets from the balcony. Your assistance during our stay was very much appreciated. I hope to be able to use this again in the near future. Warm regards.

    T Judeel - May, 2016

  • Perfect location, with great views which change nightly with the comings and goings at the Port. Quality accommodation, with great restaurants within walking distance. We will be back. Thanks Andy

    A Burns - Feb, 2016

  • Thanks PJ. We enjoyed the holiday and the apartment. Some air conditioning would have made it perfect as it got very hot in there and hard to cool down. It was a great spot and had a lovely view. The harbour captured our attention too. I’d recommend it to others travelling.

    D Schussler - Jan, 2016

  • Perfect for our needs. Great view, great location. Truly a well appointed apartment.

    D Vigil - Jan, 2016

  • Hi, Really enjoyed our stay in the apartment. Nelson is a great place!

    D Rabey - Dec, 2015

  • Dear Jarrod and PJ, We wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for all your assistance in accommodation last month. It was a stressful time for us and you made it much easier. Both Seaside Luxury & Waterfront Luxury apartments were superb. We will no doubt be booking through you again at some stage. Regards,

    L & D Hardie - Oct, 2015

  • Lovely view!
