The Space

Just a birdcall away from giant leafy trees and the sprawling greenery of the Botanical Reserve. If you have a small party who want a spacious living space with the comforts of home but the compactness of an easy care suite, then this is the place for you.

This relaxed, private and completely renovated old Mediterranean style 2bdrm hideaway is perfectly situated: Ridgeline tramping tracks on the adjoining hills flow to the nearby sea and down into bush valleys with riverside swimming holes. The trail head to these is only a one minute walk from 8 Arches. If you turn the other direction and walk two blocks you can join the riverside walking/biking track long the beautifully landscaped Maitai River. The Riverside pool beckons a wee bit farther down the footpath and the town centre is not much further. Bring your bikes and it is a short and easy ride along the river to the harbour and beyond that to Nelson's best beach, Tahunanui.

Once you arrive there is no need for a car. Open your door and walk toward the sea and you are now a couple minutes walk from the Queens Gardens Reserve, the Chinese gardens, the Suter Art Gallery and the gourmet-style food of the Suter Gallery Cafe. Walk two minutes more and you are in the City Centre, with the temptations of the Saturday and Wednesday Farmer's Markets, or a pizza at Stefano's and a movie at the State Cinema close to hand. Walk to the nearby Sprig and Fern or Freehouse and hoist a couple of pints, enjoy some fish and chips or Indian food and don't worry about calling a taxi as you are only a five minute walk back to your accommodation. Treat yourself to a gourmand's feast and walk the 5 minutes to the sweet, intimate dining at "Mint." There is an great selection of wines with a wine-tasting bar, and freshly-caught Nelson fish at Fresh Choice supermarket, also a 5 minute walk.
