Kina Olives Cottage overlooking Tasman Bay

 See comments above 

Tranquil Country Cottage

 Great wee place. All that you need plus ducks and cheeky hens, which are the source of really nice eggs. A friendly welcome to top it all. 

2 Nile Court on Nile Street

 What a great place to start our NZ experience. This unit has all we needed from comfortable beds with fine linens to a fully equipped kitchen and plenty of space to lounge, read, eat. We particularly enjoyed the covered outdoor patio and ate all our meals out there. We stayed three days at 2 Nile Court and because of its proximity to the CBD were able to walk many to places of interest. Highly recommended as Nelson accommodation. 

Gunado - a cosy kiwi bach.

 This was our 2nd stay at Gunado. It's fabulous. Charming bach in a wonderful location. Walking on the beach, kayaking in the estuary, collecting clams. Brilliant. 

Footprint Cottage, Ligar Bay

 Wonderful property and much nicer than the pictures suggest. I loved the beach style art work decorating the home. A quick, easy walk to the beach. 

Beach Front Gem Cottage - Great Location

 This bach was perfect for the three of us who stayed there for two nights in February. It was spotless, nicely decorated with a beach theme, had very comfortable beds and a good shower. The kitchen had everything we needed including a coffee plunger. We enjoyed the small bottle of Lindauer cookies left to welcome us. The location was magic with a view of Golden Bay and the ever shifting coastline. We saw the bay both empty and full. We stargazed at the clear sky without even going outside.
