  • This is a very smart house with beautiful views. It was a perfect base for Nelson and the wider region. The house was extremely comfortable. By the end of the week I was tempted to ask the hosts to sell it!

    Grant N. - Feb, 2024

  • Sea Song was fabulous, home away from home. Spacious, quiet and relaxing! Amazing restoration. Than you for accommodating us!

    Frances M. - Jan, 2024

  • Thanks for a great stay! We loved it.

    Gwynneth - Dec, 2023

  • Sea Song was absolutely gorgeous with stunning views. The house felt like a home as soon as we stepped through the door. The balcony provided beautiful views and watch the boats sail by. Not far to great restaurants and cafes by car. A great base in Nelson to tour around and see the sights.

    Roslyn M. - Dec, 2023

  • Great location well appointed house beautiful views highly recommended! 5 Stars!

    Larni - Oct, 2023

  • Great place to stay in Nelson, definetly coming back again!

    Shawa M. - May, 2023

  • Die Unterkunft ist etwas altmodisch und es sind viele alte Sachen drin. Die Küche ist viel besser ausgestattet als in den meisten anderen Unterkünften. Die Terrasse ist wunderbar und die Lage ausgesprochen schön. Für 2 Personen ist nur ein Bad und eine Toilette ausreichend, für vier Personen wäre das zu wenig. Der Preis ist trotzdem zu hoch, auch wenn man den Osterzuschlag berücksichtigen muss.

    Anje S. - Apr, 2023

  • Stunning was my first word when I walked into this charming home. The views are incredible. I could have sat outside on the lovely patio and not moved for days. So peaceful. The home is walking distance to the city center and Tahunanui Beach. The gourmet kitchen is amazing! The home itself has so many old charming built ins and decorated to make you feel right at home. Wish my time permitted me to stay longer.

    Lynda W. - Mar, 2023

  • Great place! Our big car didn’t fit the driveway so it was tricky getting all the cases down all the steps to the property but always found a space to park. Beautiful views and places to relax of an evening within the house. Lovely x

    Lovely family home. The weather was grey and rainy so feel we didn’t get to experience Nelson at it’s best.
    Holiday Nelson
  • Pretty good place overall. Enjoyed the views, neighborhood, and general house vibe. The bed wasn’t that comfortable though. I would have liked to leave the windows open some more but mosquitos were coming in. There wasn’t big screens in the windows. The house got a little warm and had a stale air smell. Nothing major but worth calling out.

    Jason G. - Feb, 2023

  • Lovely little place . Thoroughly enjoyed it

    John R. - Jan, 2023

  • Dear Mara, I wanted to take a moment to send you and the team a huge “thank you” The stay at Sea Song was truly a magical and very special one for us. This will be my last Christmas with my parents for a while in NZ as I’ll be heading overseas. To be able to spend it in Nelson, in that beautiful home was so special. We were so relaxed. The place had everything we needed and it was clean and tidy. We walk away with amazing memories and would go and stay there again in a heartbeat. Thank you for being on hand to help us settle in and get comfortable. For answering all our questions so quickly and sending all the helpful tips and advice. We will absolutely reach out to you directly, the next time we visit Nelson. I want wish you and the team a very happy New Year and best wishes for 2023! Thank you.

    Nimali W. - Jan, 2023

  • A beautiful home set on the hillside with incredible views of the ocean. We were so relaxed. The place had everything we needed and it was clean and tidy. We walk away with amazing memories. Would go and stay there again in a heartbeat.

    Nimali W. - Dec, 2022

  • We loved our mini break at Sea Song in the April school break. Such a fabulous spot with an amazing view (the narrow roads up to the hill are worth it!). The deck was amazing and we couldn't believe how quiet it was. The house was very clean and tidy and we had everything we needed close by. Easy to reach your destination by car - highly recommend as those hills are steep! and everything is fairly central. My only niggle was there wasn't a mirror and powerpoint close enough together to blowdry or straighten your hair. Louise and family

    Louise P. - May, 2022

  • Great location with lovely views Thank you for the stay

    Olivia M. - Apr, 2022

  • Kia Ora, We absolutely loved our stay at Sea View Cottage! It was well appointed, and super relaxing. We appreciated all of the little touches that made it feel like we were ‘home’. It was great having a quiet drink on the balcony while watching the sun set over the bay. The only downside was that our trip was too short! We very much look forward to stay again! Thanks again, and hope to be back soon.

    Zack B. - Mar, 2022

  • Beautiful, wee family home with stunning views. it was great to feel like we were in our own little home away from home. it was fantastic and we very much look forward to staying again!

  • If we return to Nelson, we would definitely stay here again. The view is superb. Lovely house, great views.

    Mark J. - Apr, 2021

  • Good Morning Thank you so much for such a wonderful accommodation, my daughter and myself felt so much at home and comfortable. We managed to tuck the rental vehicle within the lines J and found the location so close to the central city. We would love to come back to Nelson again as we cancelled our kayaking at Able Tasman due to the weather and would love to book Sea Song again. Kind regards Chrissie

    Chrissie R. - Apr, 2021

  • Hello, Thanks you again for accommodating the date change due to lockdown in AKL. Sea Song was fantastic and the renovated deck meant taking in the sun each morning was a joy. My mother loved the house and the front bedroom. Great kitchen, facilities and location and sooooooo quiet. Only point worthy of note was the shower drained very slowly and on the first morning I noted the bathmat was soaked from overflow water exceeding the height of the shower sill. Not a major at all but might pay to check if there’s anything blocking the shower drainage. Amazing. Thanks Steve

    Steve K. - Apr, 2021

    Hi Steve, Thanks for your nice feedback. We love this cosy little home! We are glad you had a nice time in Nelson and we'd love to host you again next time you are travelling in the area :-) We will get the shower drain checked. Have a lovely day! Kindest regards, Sara
    Holiday Nelson
  • Stylish cottage in a superb location- short walk to reserve/beach, Boat shed cafe (excellent food and coffee) and town/supermarket. Not to mention fantastic views over Nelson. Wish I could have stayed longer. Highly recommend. Thank you for your hospitality and accomodating the early check in- I had a fantastic stay. Best wishes, Jill.

    Jill C. - Feb, 2021

  • This house is a firm favourite — we loved everything about it! Amazing view, wonderfully set up and thoughtfully curated. A real pleasure and it set our holiday up beautifully. Thank you! We will be back. Thank you for everything - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!!

    Erin Victoria Jackson - Jul, 2020

  • Kia ora team, Many thanks for the wonderful property and all that you did to set it up so thoughtfully. It was perfect for what we needed and worked really well. Much appreciated! Ngā mihi nui,

    Erin Jackson - Jul, 2020

  • Great location for Nelson beaches and seaside bars

    Paul Howarth - Jun, 2020

  • This is a special find...very tastefully decorated and furnished; lovely art; beautiful gardens; wonderful big deck and spectacular view from living areas and main bedroom. Wish we could have stayed longer and would definitely return. (Note- If driving anything bigger than a small car I would suggest parking on the road as the drive way is tight.) This is the perfect place!! Very clean and tastefully put together, lovely art, amazing deck. We really liked all it offered and wished we could have stayed longer. Beautiful gardens were nice surprise too and the view is as magnificent as the picture indicates. Thank you to the host for sharing.

    Anne McTiernan-Gamble - Mar, 2020

  • Everything was as advertised and better. Fully provisioned with everything you need for a wonderful NZ holiday. If this place is available we highly suggest you book it! superb, top 3 airbnb ever... we will be back once the world's regained its sanity

    Gary Floyd - Mar, 2020

  • Great home with a homey comfortable feel. The deck is fantastic with beautiful views of the sea and lovely birds. Very close to the city center- only a 5 minute drive. I would recommend this home for your stay in Nelson. One tip- rent a small car- will make it easier to park in the tight spot.

    Nicole Benson - Jan, 2020

  • Beautiful character property with great views from a large deck. House has everything you need including a large kitchen with great cooking facilities. Driveway is a little narrow but it’s only a short walk if you prefer to park on the road.

    Mark Eggers - Dec, 2019

  • We had a wonderful time. The cottage is quaint & cute; well appointed with outstanding views. Thank you.

    Hope Baldridge - Jan, 2019

  • we had a wonderful holiday in Nelson made especially enjoyable because of the comfort and service we had at Sea Song.

    Sylvia Lyons - Jan, 2019

  • Lovely, spacious and well-equipped house with great views. The restaurants are a short steep climb away but worth the effort.

    David Willis - Jan, 2019

  • Nicely cared for, nicely designed, well located and charming. Hosts answered all questions promptly. Property was exactly as promised and in good order. They also allowed us some gracious check out time flexibility on our final day. Super nice and positive people to deal with.

    Kent Baint - Feb, 2018

    Liam McElhinney - Feb, 2018

  • My wife and I are celebrating our honeymoon through the South Island and we absolutely loved this place. It's such a great home with quality throughout and an awesome back deck and view over the ocean. I would recommend for anybody staying over in Nelson to check it out! Thank you so much for letting us use your lovely home. What a quaint home with an awesome view. Hopefully we'll stay again some day!

    Sean McLaughlin - Jan, 2018

  • Comfortable and very clean accommodation with stunning views

    Helen Ashwell - Mar, 2017

  • Beautiful home with gorgeous view. Roads are steep but enjoyed the walk down to great restaurants below. So enjoyed our visit!

    M Gross - Jan, 2017

  • Sea Song is a lovely house in the north west of Nelson. It has a stunning view of the sea and is a short drive to the city centre. It's a lovely home and we were made to feel very welcome. Although we were unfortunate enough to have a rainy weekend, we were very fortunate to have it at Sea Song. Our family remarked many times over that it may have been raining - buy we were cosy, relaxing, catching up on reading while a storm raged outside. We're already planning another stay

    B Veitch - Jan, 2017

  • Lindisima e impecable casa con un balcón terraza hacia el mar pocas veces visto!! Zona muy tranquila y pintoresca. Casa super equipada y de alta calidad!
