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.

TheCaboose - Romantic Getaway

 Handy location for exploring the area. Great for those wanting to experience something a little different. 

Boulder Bank Apartment Nelsons Best Kept Secret

 Great location and tidy property :-) 

Pohara on the Beach - Executive Holiday Home

 Fantastic property with a stunning location. Kitchen was very well set up. Please consider providing a linen hire service and full cleaning service (we would have preferred to pay for these than bring linen and clean at the end of our stay). 

Heatherbell Cottage, cosy accommodation in Stoke

 Great little cottage with lots of style. We especially loved the exposed brick to show the original character under the veil of a modern renovation. Will definitely stay again next time we're in Nelson! 

Family beach cottage with amazing views

 a beautiful wee place and a nice tidy batch, the view over the sea is amazing and waking up to the sounds of bellbirds and tui's is a dream come true! and its just a 2 minute walk to a golden sanded beach. stunning would loved to stay longer!
