Anazing house, great place. Would definitely love to go back again Amazing place and perfect for our Easter break
Chris E. - Apr, 2021
Hi team, We had a lovely time at Aporo in Nelson. The house was wonderful and roomy for our group of 4 adults, a preschooler and a baby. The layout was great and the views were amazing. The house was clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The service from the Holiday Nelson team was great and communications were clear and helpful. We had no trouble finding our way, getting in to the house and following the instructions about the rubbish and departure requirements. We will definitely book with Holiday Nelson again in future.

Hi Hosts We enjoyed our stay with friends.It was well maintained beautiful house with awesome views. The property has everything guests can think of. Only the 4th bedroom which had single bed with trundler was an issue as we were all adult couples and it was difficult to sleep. Apart from that we Loved it. Would definitely recommend. Thanks Rupa
Ramandeep Kaur - Oct, 2020Hi Rupa, Thanks for your nice feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your time in Nelson and your stay at Aporo. Bedroom 4 in this home is set up as 2 Single beds unless you ask for us to configure it as a King bed. We should have picked up that you were 4 couples, but since you didn't request to change the bed configuration, we presumed you might be happy with it. Our apologises for this. Next time please do not hesitate to contact us even after arrival as we would have been happy to pop in and turn the bed into a King bed for you. It's been our pleasure to host you :-) Kindest Regards, Sara - Holiday NelsonHoliday Nelson
What a stunning property, with amazing views to Nelson. I would recommend this property to anyone traveling to the area.
Mike Cook - Oct, 2020
A fantastic, clean property with fantastic amenities. Felt like a real home, away from home with all the extra thought into decor, making it comfortable and relaxing. We loved our stay. The property worked well for our group, with plenty of space to relax and unwind. Thank you.

Rory Smith - Jun, 2019
Wow, what a great property for accommodation. 4 bedrooms was ideal for 4 single mature women. The home was lovely & warm & very well appointed & the 2 bathrooms were also lovely. Having access to a few pantry items was also really nice for the odd cup of tea or coffee. Much appreciated, Kathy Olsen
Captain Hawkes Bay/Poverty Bay Womens Golf team - Apr, 2019
Beautiful house in a beautiful place This house is stunning and big enough for a very comfortable family get together. Great attention to detail and everything you need. Stunning views across the bay. Good location, near airport but within easy drive of supermarkets and town centre. Holidays Nelson are great to deal with and very responsive. Thank you for a lovely break!
Patricia Robertshaw - Apr, 2019
Commanding views, lovely deck, a great base to explore Nelson.
Nikki Hannan - Mar, 2019
Good for a family property worked well for our large group thanks for arranging the porta cot handy to airport
Fred Hutchings - Mar, 2019
I stayed with my 3 brothers at this holiday home for 3 nights. It was nice and comfortable for the four of us to have a bedroom each. Great beds, couches and everything we needed to make our stay a home away from home. The house was up on the hill away from the noisy traffic, yet nice and central.
Karen Joyce - Mar, 2019
"We had a wonderful trip, the property is in a great location with amazing views. Very quiet setting and offered everything we needed." "Easy and very quick to respond."
Toni Trainor - Feb, 2019
Good morning, We enjoyed our stay at Aporo, being a very comfortable, clean and well maintained home with everything available. Views were lovely. It certainly made our stay in Nelson enjoyable and if we were to come to Nelson again , we will certainly be enquiring again. Thank you Kelly and Steve Gibson
Kelly and Steve Gibson - Feb, 2019
The location is good where you can see awesome view from the back yard. The inside decoration is stylish and beds are comfortable. Recommend to big family or a group of friends.
Lu Jiang - Dec, 2018
Robert&Becky Zhang - Dec, 2018
This accommodation was great for team building for our staff members. They came from Christchurch to complete a job and it was cost effective to have them all stay at the one place. They were happy with the location and the size of the accommodation. We will definitely use you in the future if we have this many employees having to stay overnight. Once again thanks you.
Bernie Waterman - Oct, 2018
This place is every bit as good as it looks and then some! Breathtaking views, quiet location and not far from the village centre and the beach. The hosts are helpful when needed but allow you to use the space as if it were your own home. I cannot find fault at all, highly recommended
Steve and Paul Clarke - Sep, 2018Thanks again for staying Steve and Paul - so glad that you enjoyed your time here at Aporo. Hope you make it back again next NZ trip!Holiday Nelson
Thank you so much. The house was amazing woth great views. Everything was ready to go when we got there. Was a great weekend in an amazing house!
Louise H - Aug, 2018
Nice warm modern house. Spacious kitchen and living areas with an excellent outdoor deck with great views. Hi Yes we enjoyed our stay at Aporo and overall had an excellent time in Nelson. The accommodation was very comfortable. You have a nice house. Thank you
Kashyap Hari - Apr, 2018
Amazing views! Great outside area for BBQ with friends :-)
Sarah Hollingsworth - Apr, 2018
We really enjoyed our stay at Aporo, it was perfect for our little family reunion, as it was very similar in size etc to our son's beach house in Pohara, which we simply couldn't get over to! You were so easy to deal with and everything was exactly as you described on your website and in our phone calls. Very professional. We hope to be able to use your excellent services again in the future if we are in beautiful Nelson. Thank you again for all your help. Many thanks,
Calvin Bailey - Mar, 2018
Lovely property with plenty of room and nice views, very relaxing place to stay.
Ciaran Carpenter - Mar, 2018
We loved our stay at Aporo, it was home away from home. The place was very comfortable clean and tidy. Everything you needed was there. Great property and location. Beautiful views and it had everything you needed . It was very comfortable and stylish. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.
Trish Faint - Feb, 2018
Need something in Nelson? Aporo! Great 4-bedroom house managed by a great team. Great for staying at but also great if you have to stay in. Comfortable and roomy, with a big kitchen and dining table. Comfortable sleeping accommodations. Although no AC seems to be a theme in New Zealand. But the wind whips through and was fine. We would come back here. Give it a try! Everyone was great and very communicative, especially with Cyclone Gita putting a wrench in our plans. So they were flexible with an additional day and found us another spot for after our Abel Tasman hike. To be holed up at Aporo wasn’t too shabby. Great house. There were six of us and the house was perfect. Anything we needed, we got a quick response. And we did venture out in the storm to check out World of Wearable Art (WOW) and car museum which was just down the road. Also Speight Ale Bar was a terrific spot to eat and drink. The storm caused a little ant attack, but we managed them as soon as they hit. Other than that, we’d definitely stay here (or any property that this team manages- they were awesome).
Ron Espiritu - Feb, 2018
We loved our stay. The house was very comfortable with a perfect view and the wetter superb. The combination was great and will be very positively remembered by us.
Wout van Heerdt - Feb, 2018
This was the perfect place! Such a beautiful home with all the things you need for a great holiday break. Thanks. Great to deal with. No issues at all. Thanks again,
Leigh Grimwood - Feb, 2018
Lovely, very bright and comfortable home with amazing view, open living room, very clean an well equipped kitchen. Location is very good for exploring the region. If you plan on being in Nelson area we would recommend staying here. We had an amazing stay at your Home in Nelson with a great view to the sea. Thanks a lot :-)
Karin Jamelka - Jan, 2018
We were delighted with the accommodation. The home is extremely well fitted out, in an excellent location, with the most amazing views. Quiet, spacious and well-provisioned: excellent for two couples travelling together - nicely furnished and with everything you need to make for a comfortable stay. The views from the property are sublime, and it is in an excellent location to explore the greater Nelson region. We only wished we were staying longer The fact that you turned on such wonderful weather too was a definite plus! We do hope to return sometime. Kind regards and thanks,
Trish Hosking - Nov, 2017
The property was fantastic for our large family group. Ample cooking utensils and an amazing view! Jarrod & Peta-Jane were great to deal with lots of information available.
Renee Meharry - Oct, 2017
Stay was a pleasure start to finish and what a view! Key safe worked well and a fabulous house with plenty of rooms for us all. No complaints and would happily stay again.
Barry Turner & Shauna Gratton - Sep, 2017
Correspondence was great with all the information we needed about the house. Amazing house to stay at. View was just devine. Will definitely stay there again. Good location to all activities in Nelson.
Caroline Hendricks - Aug, 2017
We absolutely enjoyed our short stay at Aporo and would unreservedly recommend it to all prospective people looking for upmarket accommodation in Nelson. Our only regret was the short time we had to enjoy all the accommodation had to offer. Thanks for a most enjoyable accommodation.
Ron Sheehan - Jun, 2017
Modern design and space. Lovely accommodation with great view. Well worth staying here
Andrew Kordecki - Apr, 2017
Booking was quick and easy - no problems at all. Beautiful and well equipped home, must be used by owners based on the well stocked kitchen cupboards! Lovely bathrooms and kitchen, lots of space for the three generations in our family that stayed. Cannot access garage but plenty of off street parking available. Wonderful views, very clean and all basic toiletries supplied. About 3 minutes drive to nearby shops, and I think about 7 minutes drive to centre of Nelson. Would happily recommend to other families.
Ruby Dimmick - Apr, 2017
“This house is amazing, best stay in Nelson”
Jon Burridge - Mar, 2017
"Loved this house ! We had such a relaxing time and super views to !!!"
Shelley Knox - Mar, 2017
It was the first time I'd used this website and was impressed how easy it was to book. And then the clear instructions I received by email about all the details I'd need to find the place and check in. The house was really lovely. It's so hard to tell from photos what somewhere is like and Aporo exceeded my expectations. Light and airy with great views (when the rain stopped). Tasteful decor with all the comforts u need. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.
R Oakley - Mar, 2017
Hello everyone, I would just like to say my family and I immensely enjoyed our stay in Nelson. The accomodation really was perfect for us. Also your communication and help was truly appreciated. I will most likely use Aporo or something similar when I return to Nelson, which hopefully will be sooner rather than later! All the best,
Connal Mackenzie - Mar, 2017
Hello A huge thank you for the wonderful stay. The house was fantastic. Clean, well maintained, warm, inviting and views to die for. Our stay was 2 days of fun in a lovely setting. We read books, watched the planes land ( we were even astounded at how many planes come in and out of Nelson). Had a barbecue, and just thoroughly enjoyed our stay, even when it rained. We would highly recommend your Aporo to any of our family and friends. We hope you were happy with the condition we left the house in. We would stay again if we are in Nelson. Mina & Phill
P Buckle - Feb, 2017
“Great house with wonderful views of the ocean and tidal flats. Superb deck surrounds the water sides of the property with comfortable outdoor furniture, tables and a grill. House has everything you could want, even had a pantry stocked with coffee, tea, sugar, condiments, oils, paper towels, all the things you don't want to have to go out and buy when you arrive. Location is a water view residential district above city center with direct road access North to the Abel Tasman route avoiding the morning and evening city traffic. ”
Phil Johnson - Feb, 2017
Great hosts, Very easy to deal with - great communication, clear instructions. The property was amazing - A great location and extremely well equipped! Low maintenance and had everything we needed. I would go straight back here on my next trip to Nelson.
Ethan Amundsen - Feb, 2017
Hi - had a great weekend thank you and the house was terrific for our purposes. Thanks for coming to look at the shower issue so quickly; everything else was fine and we thoroughly enjoyed our use of it. Thanks for all your help along the way Kind regards Joan
J Mackenzie - Jan, 2017
Enjoyed our stay!
S Thompson - Oct, 2016
Hi there We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Aporo. It was beautifully presented and extremely comfortable. We would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting larger accommodation in Nelson. My brother from Melbourne mentioned that a shower caddy would be good to put things in, in the main bathroom but otherwise it was very well appointed.Our only problem was the weather on Friday night-Nelson fog-which prevented four of us getting down to Nelson until Saturday morning-only the groom and Dennis his father got to sleep there Friday night- leaving the rest of us us only 30 minutes to get changed and ready for our son's wedding. We would all have loved to have spent longer at Aporo and enjoy the fabulous view for longer. Thank you
J & D Mundt - Sep, 2016
Hi guys. Team have never complained about the houses and enjoyed there stay. Beats a motel unit and they like when a BBQ is available. Your services are always clear and prompt so no complaints from me. Thanks and regards Dave
D Grigor - Aug, 2016
Absolutely the best accommodation - superbly equipped house, very comfortable, wonderful views, would definitely stay again and recommend to all, layout worked very well for our extended family. Thank you!
T Johnson - Jul, 2016
Thanks â€“ enjoyed our stay very much. Beautiful house, well kept, very clean and tidy, everything we needed and more. Enjoyed some beautiful sunsets, all day sunshine to keep warm and a good heat pump in the evenings. Will definitely stay again next year!
Z Maslin - Jun, 2016
Hi Jarrod and Peta â€“Jane Thanks again for your help with this We loved the property. It was immaculately clean, modern and everything thought through. Please thank the owners for us -we had a wonderful holiday.
Gaby G - Apr, 2016
Hi Jarrod, Peta-Jane and Fawn, We had an amazing stay at Aporo. Nice and tidy sunny holiday house. With everything we needed. Thanks a lot. We had a great time in Nelson
Piety S - Apr, 2016
Hi, the property was great. Booking and communication was great. Thanks for making it so easy.
B & L Storey - Mar, 2016
The house was beautiful, and the view--spectacular! We enjoyed the spaciousness of the home, and the large sized kitchen and patio area that was well-appointed with pans and cooking supplies. The large windows that opened up in the kitchen, dining and lounge area were nicely designed to create an indoor/outdoor space with breezy airflow that prevented us from getting hot in those rooms on warmer days. In a town with tricky/difficult parking on the hillside, we appreciated the easy parking and access to the house. Would we stay again? In a heartbeat! I also found your service (Holiday Nelson) to be especially professional and helpful. Thanks again!
Alisa & Jared L (USA) - Mar, 2016
Hi Jarrod and Peta-Jane, Aporo is a fantastic house which we loved staying in, the location is perfect - within 5-10 minutes driving distance to the beach and the town centre, getting a taxi into town and back was easy and cheap! The views are stunning and the house is so quiet, it was very easy to relax in. It has been well planned for a holiday home with every convenience we could think of, the artwork was amazing and the house is incredibly warm, comfortable and sunny. We loved staying here and would recommend for couples or families! A couple of things it might pay to bring to the owners attention, the tiles to the front door are treacherous when wet, my husband slipped on them a couple of times on the day we left and we got a takeaway pizza delivered on the last night and the delivery guy fell over. Also there is a bit of an ant infestation happening within the house, didnâ€™t bother us too much but it might with other people. Once again, thank you for your help with us getting this house - we would love to come back to it for another holiday!!
J Houliston - Jan, 2016Thanks again for choosing to stay at Aporo with Holiday Nelson! So glad you enjoyed your stay :-)Holiday Nelson
Thanks for this great feedback! We'll look at what we can do to add extra grip to the tiles in the rain and we'll begin baiting for ants. Ants have been present at many properties this Summer - it's been a great one for the ants with exceptionally good weather & very little rain. Thanks again.
Holiday Nelson - Jan, 2016
Hi Jarrod, We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Nelson and the service provided by Holiday Nelson was outstanding. Best of all was the beautiful property that we stayed in. It was just like being home from home which took all the stress out of staying somewhere else. What a fantastic property. We would definately come back to the property if we were to stay in Nelson again.
R Woodhall - Jan, 2016
High spec beautiful home with amazing big open plan living space, and stunning view over the sound. Aporo was absolutely beautiful. We were greeted with a stunning sunset - the living space was perfect for our needs and the bedrooms worked out really well. Able to hire great travel cot and high chair for low cost. Great facilities to keep warm in winter- electric blankets on all beds, loads of extra blankets and hot water bottles (we're Brits so used to central heating which doesn't tend to exist in NZ). Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
