  • We had a lovely 3 days here. The location is perfect and everything was there to have a comfortable stay. The only problem was the road noise at night from the master bedroom but we may have been a bit more sensitive to it being from the country.

    Stephanie G. - Jul, 2022

    Hi Stephanie, thank you for your feedback. We're glad you enjoyed the apartment and we're sorry if there was any disturbance to your nights during your stay. It may well be that you're used to somewhere less central or it may have been a busy night along the waterfront road. Thanks again for staying. Jarrod - Holiday Nelson

    Nik M. - Jan, 2022

    Melanie S. - Mar, 2021

    Thank you Melanie, so glad you booked again and enjoyed your second stay here! Sorry about the extra traffic during your time here - hopefully the roadworks on the other side of the hill are completed soon! :-)

  • Good morning Sara, Mara, Mayie, Jarrod & Rob, Thank you for your email. Our stay was perfect. Rob greeted us, and apologies for being later than our predicted time, and ran through everything with us. Gave us great ideas for food in the area. We loved the proximity of the apartment to town and also loved the every changing scenery going on outside. The apartment was impeccably clean and tidy, had all of the facilities we required and beds comfortable. We would recommend this apartment to anyone looking at staying in Nelson. Thank you for working with us when we had to change travel plans, much appreciated. Kind regards Maree

    Janine Carter - Jul, 2020

  • Lovely apartment with gorgeous views. We found the apartment stunning with the comfiest bed in the master bedroom than any we have stayed in. Would highly recommend. Worth the price. Waking up to the view of the sea and watching the sail boats in the evening was a treat.

    Audrey Hutcheson - Mar, 2020

  • Hello Robert, Sara & Jarrod Our stay at Waterfront Escape was a wonderful relaxing time after the passing of my father. Mum was very happy chilling out in the apartment. The apartment was well appointed, clean and felt like a home rather than a motel stay. The accessibility was appreciated and the view out was enjoyed by all of us. The road noise will always be an unavoidable issue but closing the doors mitigated that when necessary. All in all a wonderful stay and atmosphere. Robs kindness and relaxed,bright personality put us at ease. Thank you so much. I hope you are happy with the way we left the apartment. Many thanks.

    Carolyn Baigent - Dec, 2019

  • Hi, the apartment was immaculate. Rob was great - he met us there and showed us how everything worked - and everything did work! We enjoyed our stay a lot.

    Marguerite Maher - Dec, 2019

  • A great apartment in a great spot, its handy for everywhere.

    Peter Kelly - Dec, 2019

  • Spotless. Comfortable. Beautiful views. Close to beach and good restaurants. Two designated parking spaces. Lovely to be met on arrival and shown how everything works.

    Marguerite - Dec, 2019

  • Good spot to sit on the balcony and watch the world go by

    John K. - Oct, 2019

  • N J Dent 16:24 (1 hour ago) to me Hi guys! Once again a wonderful experience staying in your apartments! Rob was very friendly, and explained everything thoroughly. Apartment was exactly as stated and very comfortable. The only negative - the sheets on the super king bed were the wrong size and the fitted bottom sheet kept coming untucked and scrunching up.... A bit uncomfortable! Otherwise we were very happy, as we always have been on the multiple times now that we have stayed In one of your apartments. Oh, and please tell the Rob that we found the missing free view remote! Hope to stay with you in your lovely sunny Nelson again soon.

    Niki Dent - Oct, 2019

  • Top location on Nelson’s waterfront This is a wonderful apartment for families, friends or couples wanting to experience the lifestyle that Nelson has to offer. Beautifully appointed, with every consideration for the traveller thought of. Undercover secure parking and walking distance to some incredible restaurants. Our hostess could not have been any more thorough in her introduction to her apartment and it was lovely to meet her. This property is exceptionally clean and tidy and the beds are extremely comfy. Would definitely stay here again if in town,

    Helen Postle - Sep, 2019

  • Thanks for making it so easy for our guests. They were very grateful and appreciative of everything

    Tara Sandbrook - Jul, 2019

  • Very nice apartment, good view and very clean!

    Derek Wang - Apr, 2019

  • Hi, We had a great time at the Waterfront Escape apartment over Easter. The location was perfect, looking out over the bay and seeing the big ships coming and going. Meeting us and showing us around the apartment when we arrived was appreciated and was good having the list of instructions on the fridge. The kitchen was well fitted out and we found everything we needed. The beds were comfortable with good quality linen. Cheers,

    Nikki Hoare - Apr, 2019

  • Thank you so much. The apartment was perfect for our German visitors. They just loved the view. So handy to all the waterfront restaurants too, and an easy 20-minute walk to town.

    Stuart Mainwaring - Dec, 2018

  • Hi Robert, Sara and Jarrod We all enjoyed our stay. The apartment was very well appointed and clean. Jarrod did a great job of meeting and greeting. We really enjoyed the terrace and watching the large ships come and go. The toaster wasn’t working so we had to work out how to use the griller but that was no big deal. Many thanks Jann, Lynette, Charlie & Lea

    Jann Begg - Nov, 2018

  • As a family of 4, we appreciated the space this apartment had to offer. The views were amazing. Rob greeted us upon arrival and showed us the ins and outs of the apartment plus his local knowledge of where to get great coffee - A must!. The only negative is that the road out the front is very busy and with the doors open is quite noisy, however when shut the noise is reduced to an acceptable level.

    Catherine Jarrett - Nov, 2018

  • Hi Rob We had a wonderful time at the Waterfront in Nelson. Amazing views and it was centrally located for everything we wanted to do. Apartment was spacious, clean and relaxing. Would definitely use your services again next time we are in Nelson. Many thanks once again. Margaret

    Margaret O'Driscoll - Oct, 2018

  • The house was amazing. Everything you could possibly require was provided and clear instructions were provided. Our group loved the location and particularly enjoyed being able to sit outside, admire the view (especially the snow on the mountains). I would definitely recommend this house to anyone visiting Nelson. Jarrod & Peta Jane were excellent to deal with. We were given clear instructions and details about the property and any questions we had were answered promptly

    Karen Stevens - Oct, 2018

  • Dear Robert, Sarah and Jarrod, Thank you for your fine hospitality in offering a premium property for our stay in Nelson. This apartment had a superb water view, with a lovely, well kept and beautifully designed interior. It was an absolute pleasure to stay here. Warm regards, Marsha & John

    T Ferrier - Sep, 2018

  • ReviewWe all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the apartment which was very clean. Being able to sit and watch the boats coming and going was fantastic. Thank you for meeting us on arrival, your service was exceptional.

    Jenny Edwaards - Jun, 2018

  • Hi Enjoyed our stay in Nelson – apartment was conveniently located and had amazing views, however road noise was disappointing as the movement of heavy vehicles through the night kept waking us. We think this was due to the ships in port being loaded through the night and the noise seemed to be exacerbated by a change in road surface near the apartment. Thanks and regards,

    Tonya and Peter Pastor - Apr, 2018

    Thanks Tonya and Peter, Glad you liked the apartment and sorry to hear about the night traffic during your stay. We live further along the waterfront and we heard the port at work too. It is hoped that a new highway will be built on the other side of the hill in the not too distant future - this will remove all trucks and a large proportion of traffic from our beautiful waterfront area :-) Thanks again, Jarrod
    Holiday Nelson
  • Jarrod, An awesome service thanks. Apartment amazing views and great location. One slight negative – and nothing that can be done about it – is the road noise….wow !!! It’s quieter at street level

    Tim Heeley - Apr, 2018

  • Very nice landlord.The apartment is so lovely.Nice view,convenient equipment,tidy and so many things.That would be very helpful to u like just stay at home. I hope can still stay at here again when I come to Nelson.

    Taro Ishida - Oct, 2017

  • I booked the accommodation for my daughter and her family. They had a wonderful time. My grandson spent a lot of his time on the deck enjoying the view and reading. They really enjoyed their stay. She left her phone behind and Jarod and the team did all they could to return it to her before she got onto the plane. A big thank you. Kind regards

    Di Connolly - Jun, 2017

  • We had a lovely time in Nelson and the apartment was perfect for our purpose. The location was great and the view beautiful. The apartment had everything we needed and being six adults, it was good having two bathrooms. The couple who had the main bedroom did comment that it was a bit noisey with trucks passing on the road in the middle of the night - obviously no double glazing. It was great to be met on arrival at the apartment, it is much better than trying to work things out for yourself plus a little local information is really appreciated, i.e. good nearby restaurants. Thanks again.

    Stephanie Sayes - Feb, 2017

    Hi Stephanie, Thank you for the feedback - we really appreciate this. The apartment is well insulated and double-glazed for warmth and sound, but sound is not completely blocked. It's such a pity that there are trucks on this beautiful road! So glad, that overall you had a great time here :-)
