The room at Skylight Villa was one of the best we've had through Airbnb. It had everything we needed (kettle, microwave, wireless) and our sleep was restful.
Paul was there to let us in and communication throughout our stay was clear. He left brochures in the room for the surrounding sites which was mind-focusing in terms of deciding what we ought to do!
He also kindly provided fruit and cereal for breakfast (much appreciated!) as well as good company & conversation. Don't know that we ever have or will again sit in a hot tub with such a great view of the night sky. :) Highly recommend Paul's Sky Villa for anyone heading to Nelson. Thanks again Paul!
Paul的房子位置很好，步行到达大教堂的主要商业街和超市，街上有很多吃饭的地方，也有中餐和东南亚菜。PAUL很热情，给我们使用他的厨房，我们一共住了3个晚上，非常难忘，我在自行车之旅中摔了一下，到达PAUL这。他主动帮我清理伤口，很感动。最后他还送我们去了机场。因为新西兰的最后一段旅程我们把车还了，所以非常感谢PAUL，也真心祝愿PAUL一家中国年快乐，身体健康，万事如意！我们是第三位入住PAUL家的中国客人。希望我的留言对大家有帮助。PAUL Is very nice people. We get a lot of help from him. We stay in Nelson for 3 nights. The house location is very good. Quite convenience to the town center and supermarket. We can use the kitchen as well. when I broken my hand by myself for the bike tour, Paul help me to clean my wound. Finally , Paul send us to the airport since we have send back our car within the days in nelson. I have too many thanks to PAUL. Good luck and best wishes to you and your family in the year of sheep!

Brilliant location and large great room. Paul is a charming and relaxed host who could not have made us more welcome. Would be my number one choice in Nelson.
Staying with Paul was like visiting with an old friend you haven't seen for some time; lots of good stories to catch up on. The house is lovely and the location right in central Nelson is perfect for experiencing the town as well as providing a good base for trips further afield. We hope we get a chance to visit again soon!
The skylight villa was great it was really close to town and clean. The personal space was comfortable and inviting. Paul was great at letting us do our own thing but gave great advice when asked!
We stayed with Paul before we went on another trekking tour. We had to organize a lot and Paul was so nice and helpful with everything.
His villa is very beautiful and the double ensuite we stayed in was clean and spacious and had everything we needed.
We would absolutly recommend staying in Pauls Skylight Villa and we are looking forward to come back!
Paul was so friendly and welcoming! His house is fantastic and the hot tub was the perfect way to end the day!
I'm a 50 something ex-pat (USA) living here in New Zealand for the last 20 years. The geology here in NZ shares many similarities with California so I feel right at home with the rocks, dirt and earthquakes. Nelson has some of the best weather in the country (also an appeal) and great clouds.
As a "world citizen" I find travel (and travelers) that something special about sharing this planet. I speak some Spanish and a little French. Also Australian...
