Nelson/Monaco Holiday Home

 Have stayed at this property on three separate occasions and would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone. 


 If one is looking for a unique and magical experience then this is the place. The straw-bale building with its outside bathroom reminded us of Bali and the hot fire bath nestled in amongst the ferns was a truly relaxing experience. We spent time feasting on fruit in the orchard as well as meandering up the coast and spent a stunning day swimming and relaxing at Split Apple Rock. The yoghurt and brioche arrived quietly each morning signalled by the pitter patter of Lilly's (the dog) feet.
