    Ian Zhang - Dec, 2018

  • Hi Holiday Nelson team We had a wonderful stay at the Commodore. The house itself is fabulous - with the most amazing views across Tasman Bay from the living areas and the master bedroom. The home decor is lovely - very modern and comfortable. The home was clean and fresh on arrival and well appointed with supplies such as bathroom toiletries and kitchen basics. The directions for arrival and entry were clear and communication was excellent. I highly recommend a stay at Commodore. Thanks, Lesley

    Lesley Patston - Dec, 2018

  • This is a superb place to stay, beautifully appointed in a stunning location with amazing views across the bay.

    James Le Feuvre - Dec, 2018

    Bari Ziperstein - Nov, 2018

  • Hi there, We did enjoy staying there, the view is stunning, the house was very clean and tidy. We had a nice holiday. Thank you!

    Queenie Feng - Oct, 2018

  • Hi guys We all thought the Commodore was awesome. The room layouts, beds and bedding were great. The only negatives would be the fact that one of the beds wasn't made and that some supplies were missing. Jarrod got on the case swiftly though which was great although the cleaning utensils that the cleaner provided us with were pretty feeble, 2 j-cloths! It would also have been good to have a few more of the basics. Since the commodore is such a high standard you'd expect oil, maybe some condiments (local sauces?), and a decent set of salt and pepper Mills instead of what's provided. Great TV system. Only recommendation would be a chrome cast as guests could then link their phones and ipads to the TV to watch their own movies. We were very happy though and will definitely return. A special thanks to Rob for finding and posting monkey! Cheers, John and the family.

    J Tate - Jul, 2018

    Thanks John, Once again our apologies about the bed - it had turned out that our housekeeper was doing final prep before your arrival and found a mark on the bed cover. This was being laundered and drying when you arrived :-) Chromecast - great idea. We'll see if we can have one of these added :-) Jarrod - Holiday Nelson

    Phil and Paula Hill - Dec, 2017

  • We very much enjoyed staying at Commodore Holiday House. Great views, we spent a lot of time looking out the window. Very nice house too. Holiday Nelson very good to deal with. We had a very relaxing and pleasant little holiday in Nelson.

    Patricia Watson - Mar, 2017

  • Thanks- we enjoyed our stay in Nelson

    A Smith - Jan, 2017

  • We enjoyed our visit to Nelson very much, very good weather helped. We were very pleased with our chosen holiday home Commodore. It was very clean and comfortable with lovely views and suited us perfectly. The only thing we would report was a wasps nest in the barbecue area. It would be a shame if someone was stung. We would not hesitate in recommending Commodore and Holiday Nelson for their service to anyone holiday in the area. Holiday Nelson replied: There seem to be a lot of asian paper wasp nests this Summer. They are small and quickly established, but easily removed once spotted with fly spray. There are up to 5~6 wasps per nest and they don't seem to be as aggressive as the European or German wasps. We're very glad no one was stung! There was an article in the Nelson Mail paper just the other day about the scarcity of Monarch butterflies this year. They are putting it down to the increase in paper wasps! We are keen to be rid of them and we are now checking for and removing these whenever discovered or reported to us. Thanks again for staying, the feedback and for letting us know about the wasps :-)

    K Horn - Jan, 2016

  • Hi Jarrod and Petra-Jane, Thank you for allowing us to stay in this property, it far exceeded our expectations - the location was fantastic (especially looking out over a valley of trees), everything in the house was modern and high quality. The only downside was that this was a shared property, and this was not stated on the Holiday Houses website - we didn't find out until we had already booked and paid, and most likely wouldn't have chosen this property if we had known. To be fair, the tenants downstairs were very quiet, and only once did noise become intrusive. Again, thank you for making this an enjoyable holiday, and I wouldn't hesitate to use your service again. Holiday Nelson: Thank you for your feedback. We have double checked details of the separate apartment is correctly listed on all listings & we're glad that in spite of your not knowing before booking, that this was not a problem & that you enjoyed your stay.

    J Kingsbury - Dec, 2015

  • Thanks for the use of your home. We loved the view! The property was perfect and we all had a lovely stay.

    Nicola, Leigh and Sydney - Oct, 2015

  • Thank you the house was fantastic! We will certainly recommend to friends and family.

    S Nilson - Jul, 2015

  • Just a quick note to say thank you for a great stay. The weather was great for the first few days, but even clouds just make the view better watching the rains roll in.

    M Harvey - Apr, 2015

  • My husband & I, with our 3 children aged 2 to 9, decided to make a decent holiday out of our visit for a family wedding. We chose Commodore as our Holiday home accommodation and we could not have picked a better place for enjoying the Nelson sunshine & fabulous views! The home was very comfortable, spacious and well equipped for our needs. We found the property handy to the city centre, wedding venue on the waterfront and the fantastic Tahunanui beach and playgrounds behind. All in all a great experience and one we look forward to repeating in future!

    B and C Hopton - Mar, 2015

  • Beautiful house, incredible view, lovely people to deal with, highly recommended. We didn't want to leave!?

    P Kat - Feb, 2015

  • Great views, quiet and secure street, a very comfortable home. Would recommend to friends and family and would definitely stay there again!

    M Woe - Dec, 2014

  • The house was nice and big and warm with plenty of room for everyone. The views were a special treat!

    C Lead - Nov, 2014

  • Staying for 3 weeks we were looking for a home away from home and we certainly got this at the Commodore. Modern, Clean, warm with fantastic views, the sunsets were a special treat, looking for what it was going to be like each night. I thought the property was well designed, with lots of winter sun. We liked the area too, a short drive from town and a nice neighbourhood to walk around. The managers responded quickly to my questions and were very helpful. We will be back!
