    Michelle Biddle - Feb, 2020

  • We stayed here over Christmas period for one week and we’ve had a fantastic stay. The place was clean and had beautiful views. We were a group of 9, plenty of space and lots of areas for socialising. Good location for seeing local attractions as well. The host was very responsive. Thank you for our lovely stay!

    Greg Reaveley - Dec, 2019

  • Hello team, Our weekend at the Bay Dreamer was wonderful. Organising it was so effortless and the arrival instructions easy to follow. Bay Dreamer was as portrayed a beautiful, spacious, immaculately clean home with everything anyone would need. It did not disappoint. The view was breathtaking. The beds were very comfortable. We had our 20 year old niece with us so having the separate very spacious bedroom with an en-suite away from the other bedrooms was perfect for her. The staff have been professional and accommodating during this whole process. I would definitely highly recommend both Holiday Nelson and Bay dreamer. Many thanks Julie

    Julie Fifield - Aug, 2019

  • Bay Dreamer is a new listing with first availability in August/September 2019, then all through Summer until June 2020!
