    David Paroo - Feb, 2019

  • Hello! We enjoyed our stay with you in Nelson. The home was perfect for our needs. Thank you again! We had a lovely time. We hope to return again some day. The views are breathtaking. One evening we had such a spectacular sunset! It was the perfect location for our travels to Marlborough and Abel Tasman. We enjoyed the home so much we decided to stay in to cook dinner both nights. The cappuccino machine was a plus! We had more than enough space for the 3 of us to spread out but there was easily room for at least 3 more family members. The outdoor patio is a special spot to enjoy a glass of wine at the end of your day. Would definitely come back! Thank you being such a great host! This was the perfect spot for our travels to the wine country and Abel Tasman. The views were outstanding! Love it all. Karen & Kenneth Flaherty

    Karen Flaherty - Feb, 2019

  • This lovely well loved home is perfectly situated for those who want easy access to all the delicious restauants in town as well as the beach. The outdoor covered porch/veranda is a magical space, and views abound from almost every room. There are really only three real bedrooms. The fourth bedroom is a pull out couch in a large daylight basement that works well for older kids and teens. Thank you for sharing your home. The outdoor porch/deck is magical!

    Wang Lin - Feb, 2018

  • We enjoyed our stay a lot. The best feature about the property is the extensive views. The location is also very convenient and the property is well equipped.

    P Lowe - Jan, 2018

  • Beautiful place with amazing views. The house has everything that you need. Spacious environment with a great living room/outdoor area. Always quick with responding and happy to assist with any questions asked. Highly recommended.Thank you for the stay the house was amazing and had amazing views. Thanks a lot for the early check in which came in handy. A great space for a large group of people which everyone enjoyed a lot. Kitchen and pantry area was great was we did a lot of cooking at the house. Leaving items in the pantry is a great idea as it meant we didn't need to buy some things like herbs and spices but also meant we were able to leave food and not have to throw it out. We can't really complain as the weather we had was perfect which made for an amazing time in Nelson. I'm also not sure as to how often you get the weather we had however it did get a little stuffy upstairs. Not sure if a fan in the living area is an option. Other than that a perfect stay. Thanks again.

    Lachie Neal - Jan, 2018

    Hi Lachie, Thanks for your great feedback. Weather is often really nice in Nelson with a nice sea breeze ventilating the house. Your stay was in the middle of a heat wave and extra fans would have been nice in most properties on these days :-)

  • Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your beautiful home. We just loved it. The pictures we had seen prior to getting there do not justify the beauty and quality of the house and the facilities. Hope you found the house left as expected. Once again thank you and we highly recommend anyone want to stay in Nelson to book the Seaside Manor. They won’t be disappointed.

    Charlie Sharma - Dec, 2017

  • Hi Jarrod, We have just returned to the cold UK and now catching up with emails. Chris said you had asked for feedback on our holiday home. I'm sorry he has been too busy to reply, so I thought I would respond. We loved everything about Seaside Manor and it was great meeting you and having you so close by to sort out the minor problems that we did have. The only negative comments were the beds- Chris who complained that their bed was very uncomfortable and he didn't get much sleep. In fact he still suffered back ache for some time after we got back to Christchurch! And Ruth our daughter who had the sofa bed thought it was uncomfortable/too soft and felt it certainly wouldn't be good enough for a couple (if continuing to advertise the property as suitable for 9). Hopefully that is constructive criticism! We can reiterate what we said at the time about the views being stunning, the position perfect, and the accommodation overall very good. We also enjoyed the little hideaway ! It was great to have the lovely decking area with the BBQ too. Wish we could have stayed longer!

    D Hill - Feb, 2017

    Thanks again Diane. We have discussed your feedback with our home owner & can confirm the following changes will be made!: We will replace the mattress on the Japanese slat bed. We will put a blind up in the no 2 room. We will firm up the sofa bed by replacing the mattress/adding a topper! :-)

  • Hi Jarrod, Peta-Jane & Sara, Thanks for helping us out with our accommodation hicupp. We were very grateful for your understanding and help finding us somewhere to stay. We loved the lodgings you provided and had a great time in Nelson. We were surprised how busy the place was and delighted with how friendly and tolerant the locals were to us pesky tourists. Thanks again,

    M Corbett - Jan, 2017

  • Hi guys just writing to say thanks for the great service and great stay. I've added a tripadvisor review but thought I'd give some direct feedback. The only 'improvement' we would suggest is perhaps a mirror for reversing out of the a bit freaky a couple of times ?. Other than that we enjoyed your beautiful part of the country and should we return, will be in touch! Please compliment the owner on his lovely, tasteful home. Nga mihi, Cushla

    C Tangaere - Jan, 2017

  • A lovely home with fantastic views in a great locality. Private, everything we needed, good instructions and appreciated your prompt response when I contacted you.

    C Waddick - Feb, 2016

  • we had a fabulous stay. The property worked perfectly for us and the location was fabulous. We would stay again.

    G Bareta - Jan, 2016

  • Hi there What a beautiful, picturesque spot. We had family from Ireland with us and this home was perfect. There were varied spaces, comfy beds and plenty of seating/grouping options. The house is well set up for family groups and is very handy to shops and activities. The house was quite chilly however and the 19 degree setting in winter might be better at 20-22. We had plenty of fan heaters and 2 heat pumps thank you. The central heating would’ve taken the overall chill off the house. We would highly recommend this property to others.

    A Hanning - Nov, -0001

    Thank you Anne-Marie, Really glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope you lifted the temp on the heat pumps. This is the first time we've had availability during winter (we've had several seasons of Summer availability), but now that we do, we'll do our best to get our heads around how the central heating works here :-) ?Best regards, Jarrod?
    Holiday Nelson
  • This place is amazing - wonderful views and lovely place to relax and take in the sunrise and sunset. Many thanks for sharing your home. What an amazing location with wonderful views. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here.
