This house is a fabulous place to stay to explore the Nelson area. Andre and Sonya were excellent at communicating and made us very welcome in their home. Lots of space, sunshine and all the things you need to have a very comfortable stay. Loved it!

My family loved staying here! The house is beautiful and has lovely ocean views. Sonya and Andre were so hospitable and even got food for us. We loved cuddling with Sam the cat and just enjoying being in the house. We were so sad to leave! Definitely our favorite place we stayed in NZ. We so highly recommend and would love to return!

Lovely, spacious home with bay views. Great hosts that offer quick communication and are very accomodating. House is fully equipt for a great stay -a home away from home with a lovely outdoor area. To maximise your stay, you would need a car or be happy for some decent pedalling to get to town but a small supermarket and cafe is only 100mts down the street. Sam the cat is a friendly, independant host who was very loved by my boys.

House is fantastic, it is in such a quiet spot with great views. Sadly it was raining so we didn't get to enjoy the outdoor area, which looked really inviting. Would definitely want to stay again.

What a fantastic place to stay! Andre and Sonya met us on arrival and could not have been more welcoming and friendly. They made us feel right at home in their beautiful house. The location is great for a trip into Nelson or to drive to Picton/Queen Charlotte Track. We stayed for 6 nights and wish it could have been longer!
