Description

  • Funky designed house with easy-flow living and eclectic furniture
  • Located right on the boulder bank and the start of Cable Bay walkway
  • Great holiday home with stunning sunsets

Please note (for bookings until August 10th 2017): this house has two cuddly pussy cat inhabitants which will share the house with you and will need to be fed (cat food left by the owners). Please do not make a booking enquiry unless you are comfortable with this.

Boulder Bank Bach is situated in the serene area known as The Glen. The house is literally right on the Boulder Bank (well 100m to it anyway). The accessibility to the water makes summertime swimming a real bonus- especially the evening swims at sunset. Snorkeling, diving, fishing (sometimes even surfing) are all right there too. The house is on a cul-de-sac so the traffic is limited to local residents and it's a quiet place to relax. At the street end begins the Cable Bay walkway (a 3hr walk through QE2 reserved native forest).

The house itself is one of the original houses here and has a quirky design and is a great place to spend some time. The eclectic furniture has been collected over the years from India, France, and op-shops in NZ. The house is well designed for easy-flow living, including bi-fold doors to increase indoor/outdoor living. The outdoor decking contains a large table/chairs suite and a BBQ for those warm summer nights.

The house contains three double bedrooms (sleeping seven people) comprising the following: King Size bed in a very spacious master bedroom upstairs, Queen Size bed in a room with a door opening to the decking, Double bunk- also with a door to the outside decking. The bathroom is another funky feature of the house, containing a separate shower and a bath underneath a glass ceiling (and ferns to boot). There is a cot and highchair in the storage space if guests require them. The house has free wifi, freeview TV and a collection of over 600 DVDs. There’s also an LP collection and record player to settle into those cosy evenings at home.

  • For the price, this place was great

    For the price, this place was great. It was clean, quiet and great for 7 of us. It's not a swimming beach but the hike was amazing. We also enjoyed being out of the busyness of Nelson. The beds were really comfortable and the view from the deck was lovely. The sand flies were bad but that's to be expected! We also loved the fresh milk farm just down the road. Overall it was a great stay minus a glitch with the internet.

  • The place was great

    The place was great. Lots of room and comfy beds. It was nice to be able to spread out with my family of 4. Great view of the water. Neighbor told us to be on the look out for whales and dolphins. Unfortunately none came by while we were watching but it was fun to know there was a possibility of seeing them. The property is located about 15 minutes from Nelson so it is good if you want something fairly quiet.

  • Absolutley loved everything about this place

    Absolutley loved everything about this place. The location, the ambience, the interesting decor, feeding the chickens, getting milk from local farm. The information about what to do etc was very helpful also. All of these things made it an experience that everyone would love to repeat. Thanks so much Aditya and Becks
