  • 为了这间太平洋畔的绝美小屋都值得再去新西兰 这间位于山上的绝美小别墅的主人是位长着娃娃脸的帅哥的,说是父母留给他的遗产。进屋瞬间我们都被震惊了。他的父母一定非常有爱吧,厨房有着堪比超市的工具玲琅满目几大抽屉柜,每个房间都可以看到广袤无际的太平洋,配上超级大的玻璃,落日余晖下洒满金黄色,夜晚推开阳台抬头就是漫天繁星。走过三四十个国家,住过最美的民宿没有之一。 (Worth going to New Zealand for this stunning Pacific Ocean cottage The owner of this beautiful cottage on the hill is a handsome baby-faced boy, saying that it is the legacy left by his parents. We were all shocked when we entered the room. His parents must be very loving. The kitchen has a large chest of drawers that are comparable to supermarket tools. Each room can see the vast Pacific Ocean. With super large glass, it is covered with golden yellow under the sunset At night, pushing the balcony up and looking up is full of stars. I have traveled to thirty or forty countries, and I have not lived in one of the most beautiful homestays.)

    Ting Guo - Sep, 2020

    Kim Murray - Apr, 2020

    Ignacio Espeche - Jan, 2020

  • Awesome kitchen that had everything you need and more. A view over the sea that continually inspires. You can walk up and over the hill behind the house and down to the lively downtown. Very comfortable bedrooms. A grill. Everything you need for a great vacation.

    David Lyall - Jan, 2020

  • Highlight of our trip! This is a beautiful and comfortable place to stay in Nelson. We are really picky and this was delightful. Highly recommended.

    Craig McAllister - Jan, 2020

  • Awesome

    Yasuyo Asada - Jan, 2020

  • Great views and good location, very comfortable home. Would definitely stay again.

    Tracy Liang - Dec, 2019

  • Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at The Cliffs, in fact we plan to stay again! Great views, great location, well appointment with everything you need to be comfortable (great kitchen, clean towels, bathrooms, etc) and excellent communication with the hosts. We would certainly recommend to others wanting to soak up Nelson and everything it has to offer. Thanks Jarrod for stopping by on arrival. We totally enjoyed our stay and plan to stay again! The place was great, we were lucky with the weather too, perfect all week. Thanks again. Jarrah

    Jarrah Robertson - Sep, 2019

  • Amazing views. Perfect for what me and my wife were after. Large house all to ourselves. Full amenities provided, we could do cooking and feel well at home. Thanks again

    Steve Zee - Sep, 2019

  • Great house, nice big kitchen, wonderful view and garden! Very clean house! Hope we can come back once in summer!

    Stefanie Lohnes - Jul, 2019

  • 非常有質素,超大超舒適,設施齊全,廚房用品齊備有家的感覺,對住全海景無得頂,美絕 (Very good quality, super large and super comfortable, fully equipped, kitchen supplies are full of home feeling, no need to live in the whole sea view, beautiful)

    Cathy Woo - Jul, 2019

  • Amazing spot, perfect layout and a view you never get sick of. Highly recommend Thank you so much. It worked so well for us and the view is amazing.

    Andy Campion - Jun, 2019

  • Stunning views of Nelson Bay and Abel Tasman National Park to the north. Several gorgeous sunsets and sunrises during our 2-week stay. Very comfortable living in the house. Vaulted ceilings make it feel even bigger than it is. All the amenities are included. Easy access to Nelson shopping. Drive up to house is a bit steep and driveway is a little awkward, but we didn't notice after a few days. You get great exercise walking pathways in neighborhood.

    Anna & Kent Taylor - Apr, 2019

  • A wonderful spot with an amazing view over Tasman Bay. The house was well-equipped, very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed a lovely walk up The Cliffs to Princes Drive Lookout and then down to Tahunanui Beach. Great coffee at Raglan Roast Tahunanui and take out at The Sands Fish and Chip Shop. Thank you to the owners! Would highly recommend this place for a stay in Nelson.

    Stephen Hunter - Apr, 2019

  • Amazing property - best self-catering property we have ever stayed at (and we have been to plenty). Everything about the house was fantastic, the well equipped kitchen was great as this is something that often lets self-catering properties down but definitely not with this house. Having the children's toys was also a nice touch. The views were incredible and the overall experience for us and our friends was brilliant. If you are planning on staying in Nelson look no further!

    Robert Hart - Apr, 2019

  • The house is spacious and situated in one on the best positions in Nelson with wonderful views, and close to the town and easy access to the beach. Everything met or exceeded our expectations. This was our first time using Airbnb and we were very pleased with the house, the facilities, and the view. We were concerned that the photos and description did not match the reality. This was not the case. The home exceeded expectations.

    Peter Griffiths - Mar, 2019

  • Dear the kind folks at Holiday Nelson, We had a wonderful stay at The Cliffs! We really enjoyed the house and appreciated the layout of the house (not to mention the location - amazing!), the well-stocked kitchen and laundry room, the wonderful yard, and the many children’s toys. We had 2 tiny kids with us and never had to even unpack any of the toys we brought with us! The washer and dryer worked very well, and we appreciated the clear instructions for things like trash and recycling. The one thing that proved problematic was the bed in the back (west) bedroom next to the children’s bedroom. It was too soft and seemed to be “sprung,” gave the couple who slept there both backaches. We would think a mattress / bed upgrade is in order soon. The bed frame / slats kept coming apart and slipping out of place, which didn’t help. A suggestion which would be nice, though of course not a show-stopper, would be a beach umbrella to protect against the strong Nelson sun ☀️. Thank you again for everything. We will be back!!

    Jerry Sue Bassalleck and family - Mar, 2019

    Hi Jerry Sue and family :-) Thanks for this great feedback and I wish you'd let me know about the slat bed problem during your stay! I found the problem in that bed just a few days ago when making it - where the central slats that lock the side rails in position had pulled out allowing the sides to flare and so that some of the slats were not contacting and therefore not supporting the mattress. I have now fixed the slats to the rails :-) I'll have a chance to test this myself later this week! If this fix has not fixed it, it shall be going! Best regards, Jarrod

  • Best place in the town Great place with awesome view!

    Alice Pai - Feb, 2019

  • What a beautiful spot! It has been our favourite on our travels in New Zealand so far. It is very clean, the beds are comfy, the linens are great and the view can’t be beat. The bbq is in great shape and we loved eating outside and admiring the view. Evening walks down to the water were also great. We would’ve loved to stay for longer. A truly wonderful spot! This has been our favourite place to stay so far. Thank you for providing such an ideal and well kept holiday space! We just loved it.

    Mark Merkur - Feb, 2019

  • The views from this home are so amazing. You could sit on the big back porch all day. It is wonderful. Perfect place to spend time in Nelson and the surrounding areas!

    Vanessa Yawn - Feb, 2019

  • Gorgeous location and view. Great well appointed kitchen and view. Close to town and harbor.

    Lawrence Wolfe - Feb, 2019

  • Thankyou for an outstanding holiday, first time being back in nelson since i was a little girl and your accomodation was a prime location close to everything and made us feel like we were staying in a castle! Thanks again

    Violet Olson - Jan, 2019

  • Beyond our expectations!!!! One of our favorite stay overs in New Zealand (and we had 10!) Property is located in a drop dead gorgeous location and the house and garden were immaculate! We didn't want to leave! Just unpack and relax!!! Needed more propane for the was attended to immediately! Absolutely perfect! Thank you, thank you!!!

    Annette Williams - Dec, 2018

  • Hi The Cliffs was a really lovely home for our Christmas week stay. Accommodation was very comfortable, beds and linen excellent quality and a superbly equipped kitchen. And it was very clean. Points to consider maybe looking at safety of pathway to road which needs attention, replacing the outside loungers and pads. One is broken so only one available. These are minor issues but as former holiday home owners, things the owner may want to consider. Very best wishes

    Gareth & Sandra Price - Dec, 2018

    Thank you Gareth and Sandra, Glad you enjoyed the home. The step edges on the path down to the front road will be addressed and we have noted the two missing slats on one of the loungers. Time to replace this lounger if new slats cannot be found. All the best for the new year and we'll hope to host you again in future :-) Kind regards, Jarrod
    Holiday Nelson
  • Loved the house and fantastic views. So glad we were able to stay the third night. If we are ever back in Nelson, will definitely stay again.

    David Bell - Nov, 2018

  • Hi. Thank you for the email. We really enjoyed our stay at The Cliffs again. The house is spacious with great views over the sea and gets lots of sun. It was presented beautifully, was really clean and had everything we needed including a kitchen well stocked with appliances. We would definitely recommend The Cliffs to others and hope to be able to return ourselves. Kind regards

    Cat Grover - Oct, 2018

  • Very quick replies and service, friendly and easy to deal with. Thank you :-)

    Elyse Thompson - Dec, 2017

  • Amazing views from this home! Great location in a quiet neighbourhood with friendly neighbours. Very helpful hosts, thanks for the recommendations. Loved staying at The Cliffs! Thanks for having us.

    Sean Bennett - Dec, 2017

  • Your home is absolutely beautiful. The views were spectacular and it was nice to have separate "wings" for our bedrooms. The yard is really nice and it was great to be able to stick our toes in the grass and sit out back in the sun! :) It is a great spot and we enjoyed visiting Nelson, Mapua, the Upper Moutere Valley and Abel Tasman. Great location for all those side trips! Thank you!

    Jennifer Tindall - Nov, 2017

  • Awesome place! The world stops here. The most beautiful ocean view house in Nelson! A must choice!

    Andrew Liu - Sep, 2017

  • We absolutely loved staying at the Cliffs. Only sorry we did not stay longer. The property is well located, in great condition and felt like home away from home. Would not hesitate to recommend or return. Thanks for having us

    Eric and Kerry Walters - Apr, 2017

  • Had a great time, thanks Jarrod for your prompt responses. Pity about the road works. We were a bit nervous about the light coloured carpet fortunately we were able to eat out every day in the garden.

    E Tinsley - Apr, 2017

  • We had an awesome time. Everything was perfect. Thanks so much and we can’t wait to come back

    Matt Hawkins - Mar, 2017

  • Hi PJ We had an absolutely terrific time at The Cliffs — what a gorgeous view of the bay - even on a rainy day.

    J Johnson - Mar, 2017

  • The Cliffs is a terrific place in Nelson. It's perched on the side of the hill with amazing views of the bay and islands. Even though it's in a neighborhood, it feels very private. It's also a huge space with two large bedrooms and a smaller bedroom with bunkbeds. It would definitely be large enough for a big family. There is an outside terrace which was a great place for cocktails in the afternoon. Unfortunately, it rained a lot while we were there but there is also a glassed-in room that's perfect to sit during rainy weather. We absolutely loved the house although the town of Nelson was a bit quieter than we had anticipated. We had a terrific stay -- thanks for your hospitality.

    Jeff Johnson - Mar, 2017

  • Hi PETA-Jane and Jarrod, We really enjoyed our stay at The Cliffs. The house was very well appointed and very suitable for two couples, in particular. The view is spectacular and we are at the Boathouse Shed which is conveniently within walking distance. With your prompt emails renting the property and locating it on our arrival day was very easy. We particularly appreciated your quick response to our query about the barbecue. It does however need to be repaired to cook properly - there is a corroded burner or valve which is preventing adequate heat management. However it did not prevent us from cooking. Also, a minor point, but it would be great if paper towels were provided. We would love to come back if we return to Nelson some day. Many thanks Ann

    A Peters - Feb, 2017

    Hi Ann, We'll take another look at the bbq and seek to replace the burners if corroded/damaged. Thanks for alerting us to the persistence of a problem. Paper towels are normally provided - apologies none were available during your stay. We hope to host you again some day :-)
    Holiday Nelson
  • Hi Holiday Nelson. Thanks for your email, I think the house was great and had all the things we needed! Was a great position and Nelson a fantastic place to stay. We would all love to come again! Kathryn

    K McAullay - Jan, 2017

  • The property was just fabulous, the view looking out over the water was amazing! The house was well equipped and beds were comfortable although a few more essential items would have been great (eg some instant coffee and perhaps a bottle of milk) but other than that it was a great stay and we will be back!

    A Oliver - Jan, 2017

  • We had a wonderful time in this beautiful home with such a lovely view of the water. Jarrod was helpful with ideas of which sites to see and places to visit. Great choice!

    L Picus - Jan, 2017

  • Dear Jarrod et al, We really enjoyed The Cliffs and we were especially grateful for the warm, dry place to hang out when the weather was so crummy during the last two days of our stay. We made full use of the big screen TV and the video collection. Having a well appointed kitchen was appreciated when we ate in. One note, the starter on the BBQ was not working and we had to improvise without matches - happily the burner on the side allowed us to make a flame. It was really nice to have the two main bedrooms a at opposite ends of the house. And, while originally daunting, we did manage to walk up and down the hill to restaurants! This house clearly works well for two couples and would be equally comfortable for a family. Thanks again!

    B Foster & Friends - Dec, 2016

  • Hi there Thank you for having us! We had a great time at the Cliffs - it was easy to organise with you and the location was beautiful ! The house was lovely, clean and the views were amazing! The only negative feedback we have would be the showers... the sliding doors desperately need replacing as the 3 panelled doors stick and jam - which is no fun when you're inside the shower box!! Otherwise a brilliant booking Many thanks.

    M Seebeck - Nov, 2016

  • We'll take a look at the shower doors at The Cliffs - they should be working nice and smoothly, but may have been knocked off their tracks. Once again, thank you for staying and we will hope to host you again someday soon :-)

    Holiday Nelson response - Nov, 2016

  • Hi Jarrod, It was excellent place to stay and lovely service from you – would love to return. Thanks Melanie

    M Smith - Oct, 2016

  • Thanks very much Jarrod for catching up. Yes we definitely enjoyed our time, albeit too short and too much to cram in. We certainly enjoyed those wonderful views and the handy situation. I hope we did the right thing with the rubbish and recycling as I didn’t feel good committing a large rubbish bag to what we had. Thank you too for allowing Max the dog to stay (sorry we had to have his ‘cousin’ Duncan visit on occasions, that was not planned, but I’m sure they both left little sign of being there – we were sure to manage those situations off the property. We will certainly be back in the future. Nelson is a favourite destination. Thanks especially too for dropping off the Teapot, it was much appreciated. I know how hard it is keeping up with everything and I hope we left the house in good condition. Certainly the late checkout was a great help. Hopefully we’ll be back without all the add-ons for a nice quiet and leisurely stay. Cheers Sandy

    S Voller - Aug, 2016

  • We really enjoyed the house! The view is great

    S & K Hannah - Jun, 2016

  • We very much enjoyed our stay at the Cliffs. Great location and had everything we needed for a family. Plenty of space too which was a bonus and the views were magnificent!

    D Hammond - Jan, 2016
