Welcome, this is your home away from home. Our large recently redecorated family home is ideal for two families or a large group visiting the beautiful Nelson region. Whether on holiday or attending a sporting/recreational activity, this is the place for you.

Both stories have heat pumps, a lounge, a bathroom and a TV. Upstairs there is also a pellet fire. As mentioned earlier, the kitchen is perfect for feeding a few with two ovens, gas hob, dishwasher, microwave and fridge/freezer (another in garage if needed). The home is warm and easy to heat as it has an HRV. It is in a quiet neighbourhood.

It's just a five minute walk to Richmond township and the Richmond Mall. There are several parks and playgrounds within walking distance as well as popular cafes and restaurants.

A five minute drive and you arrive at the Richmond Aquatic Center and seven minutes and you've reached the Saxton Sports Complex.

Both Nelson and Tahunanui are only 15-20 minutes drive away.

  • Lovely, comfortable, clean and spacious house with all the amenities we needed

    Lovely, comfortable, clean and spacious house with all the amenities we needed. All the beds we used were comfortable. The only thing I would note is that the house is on a sloped property which makes it less than ideal for anyone with mobility issues. But overall we enjoyed our stay immensely!

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for the feedback. Yes...the slopey property isn't ideal for people who may have a wheelchair. For others reading this response: There is direct access from the BBQ area up 2 steps to the flat area of the drive and straight into the downstairs half of our house through a ranchslider, but the driveway is sloped and there are steps to the upstairs half of our house. I hope your family had a lovely Christmas.

  • Close to central Richmond and all amenities

    Close to central Richmond and all amenities. Very warm house with nice view from dining room through bush & trees towards sea. Plenty of room for families.

  • What a nice place to spend a holiday

    What a nice place to spend a holiday. Clean, tidy,warm and comfortable. We loved our stay. The kids old and young had a lot of fun playing basketball, while mum enjoyed a cup of coffee and the beautiful view out of the kitchen window. Close to the mall but still nice and quiet.
