Description

  • Front Row Waterfront Position - Watch the Ships Sail By
  • Easy Walk to Nelson's Best Waterfront Restaurants & Attractions
  • Warmth & Charm that Only an Historic Character Home can Offer

Captain's Cottage (also known as Nelson's Colaba Cottage) is a character cottage situated right on the beautiful Nelson waterfront. Built more than a century ago, this wonderful property exudes charm, warmth and comfort in a location that can only be described as incredible.

You'll love the outlook - a direct view across the harbour entrance, Haulashore Island, Tasman Bay across to the mountains of the Kahurangi and Abel Tasman National Parks.

With some of the regions best eateries, cafe and event venues, Abel Tasman ferry terminal, Tahunanui Beach and the City Centre all within walking distance the property enjoys the seaside ambience of the waterfront and the convenience of this great location.

Captain's Cottage offers three bedrooms, two upstairs and one down configured as Queen, Queen and Single x2. The bathroom is well appointed with a toilet and a new tile and frameless glass shower. There is also a separate toilet. The living and dining areas are spacious, the kitchen beautiful and fully equipped and a deck encircles the house, providing a lovely place to enjoy the views and sun at the front and a private yard at the rear.

There are games, books, magazines, a DVD player and broadband WiFi internet, and even a pod stocked espresso machine!

While the old fireplace has made way for the more environmentally and efficient heat pump, a flame-effect electric heater retains some of that original charm.

The photos say it well, but Captain's Cottage really is a perfect romantic retreat or family haven for your Nelson experience.

  • A comfortable cottage

    A comfortable cottage. Stairs very steep with little room. Bedrooms are close to a busy road so early traffic noise takes a little getting use to. Otherwise well presented and a good location for walking into town.

  • Great location

    Great location. It was a bit noisy on the first night but then we got used to it and it wasn't a problem. We took advantage of being able to walk to a number of restaurants and it was easy to find our way to the city centre.
