  • We had a very relaxing 2 week staying in this modern apartment with great views. Good local transport and secure parking. Highly recommend. Thank you.

    Terence J. - Mar, 2024

  • Thank you, it was a lovely stay and the apartment was very well set up. Thanks for letting us keep the car in the garage a couple of hours after checkout, we really appreciated that.

    Camilla C. - Mar, 2024

  • Beautiful condo, right across the street from the beach. Easy walk to restaurants. The unit is clean and spacious and the views spectacular! Furniture and beds are clean and comfortable. Mara and her team were awesome hosts, completely professional. Very quick to communicate, checkin with Jarrod was simple and he was so friendly. Explained what we needed to know about the unit, then was on his way. Do not hesitate to deal with this team. They manage a number of properties. Would definitely reach out if in the area again. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed, lots of towels for the bathrooms. The only disappointment we had was the patio furniture is different than the photos (we understand, homeowners change stuff). There are no chairs for sitting on the patio, just a large picnic table. Thankfully the patio doors open wide so you can bring the outdoors in. As a somewhat picky traveller, I would absolutely recommend this unit. Thanks again for the great experience!

  • We loved our stay at this penthouse apartment. It was very well equipped and comfortable. We had various visitors stay for brief visits and all were impressed. Being so close to the beach meant we could pop across the road for a walk or a swim. Having two parking spots made it easy to accommodate visitors and cafes, restaurants and bakeries nearby were great. Highly recommended.

    Alison C. - Mar, 2023

  • Very comfortable, spacious and well equipped apartment, we loved our 6 night stay and would definitely return. The only downside was that there is no privacy on the deck from the neighboring apartments.

    Patrice A. - Mar, 2023

  • We loved our stay at the Silver Sands Beachside Apartment. The apartment had all the amenities to feel at home for our group of six. The hosts were responsive and accommodated our late arrival on the weekend on short notice. The views were amazing. We were sad that we only had a few days to spend here.

    Mel K. - Jun, 2022

  • Hi there, We really enjoyed our stay at Silver Sands Apartments. It was a great set up for 4 adults (and a little one) with plenty of room and the 3 bathrooms made life that much easier. The kitchen was well equipped and the appliances such as the tv & heart pump were modern and easy to use. The apartment itself was beautifully maintained, clean and modern - a real delight to stay in. The view from the apartment is lovely and the location is great. We did a bit of travel around the outer regions of Nelson to vineyards etc so it was handy having the apartment located just outside the main city centre. I would recommend it to others and would happily stay here again. Thank you very much! Kind regards, Bex

    Bex B. - May, 2022

  • Amazing apartment, great communication and excellent check in process. Well described and stunning presentation. Would recommend to anyone looking for beachfront accommodation Thank you so much, your place is amazing really felt like home

    Kane M. - May, 2022

  • modern & comfortable apartment with beautiful location great location and view. Well equipped kitchen, good facilities including the 3 full bathrooms.

    Bex B. - May, 2022

  • Loved the apartment and loved the service we received from you. The timely and clear communications from you both were much appreciated - great work. Would definitely stay there again is we are coming back to Nelson.

    Mark W. - Apr, 2022

  • We enjoyed our stay in Nelson, we were very comfortable in our apartment it was lovely warm and clean. I would suggest some hangers in the wardrobes , tissues in bathrooms , drink coasters for lounge & side tables. Also suggest due to traffic flow, the deck area was covered in fine black dust, so bottom of feet or footwear picks up this dust and can be carried through to lovely carpet, suggest a quick mop of deck before new guests arrive, as the dust is an accumulation over time. Definitely would stay again. Thanks again

    Pamela W. - Mar, 2022

    Hi Pam, Thanks for your email and suggestions. Well noted for future guests. Have a lovely week ahead! Kindest regards, Sara
