Paul is a perfect host and very helpful. The room and bathroom are set up with great attention to the details that make a stay comfortable. The location is also exceptional. Highly recommended.
There is no place that compares to Paul's . He has every amenity there is snd more. Best, he is a great man on all levels! Go there and experience!
Paul’s Skylight Villa is one of the best places we’ve stayed – and for the cost, a very good deal. It’s minimally decorated so the reason is not evident in the photos. It was all in the details. The bedroom had 2 walk-in closets and a small chest of drawers allowing us to unpack, a rarity in places we’ve stayed. A rheostat, allowed us to brighten or dim as needed, controlled the lighting. The bathroom had a powerful heater and decent lighting. The room had a desk and chair - as well as an easy chair for reading.
Paul was generous in allowing us to use the kitchen. Cupboard and refrigerator space were provided. We cooked at the house most days and dined on the back porch. We did our laundry at the house, a big convenience.
The wifi was strong though it did need to be reset many days, but that was just a quick flip of a switch, and it was working.
Would we stay there again? We definitely would, but we’d talk to Paul first and be sure our need for quiet worked with his schedule. During our stay there was an unexpected family visit and party that kept us up late one night, but that was not repeated.
A great place with a great host! We particularly enjoyed the generous gift of bicycles to explore the area during our stay. The living space is spacious and comfortable (awesome walk in his and hers wardrobes with luggage racks - what luxury) and full of lovely features and details. Paul's a great host and Nelson is a lovely town.
We had 3 great nights in the skylight villa. The room is spacious, airy, very clean and has a comfortable bed. There are a microwave and kettle and you have direct access to your own bathroom. A five min walk brings you to the center of Nelson. The villa itself is beautiful, Paul is a very nice and a friendly host.
We are 60-something Americans and relied primarily on walking to get around on our five-day stay in Nelson. The room in Paul's villa met our needs perfectly. It is just off the end of historic South Street and very accessible to downtown, restaurants, and other attractions. Paul offered bikes for our use, but we didn't need them. The room is spacious and we had access to the kitchen and dining area and decks with views. The house itself is an attraction, as Paul has renovated a historic home with several energy-conserving features. Paul put out cereal and fruit for breakfast each morning. Beyond the call of duty he even picked us up at the airport on our arrival. He has prepared a useful notebook with maps and other information on things to do and see in the Nelson area. Paul was an excellent host, going out of his way to accommodate our needs.
Paul was a great host - we had everything we needed, and Paul gave us loads of helpful advice on the Nelson area. The room and house were lovely, with plenty of space, and lots of attention to detail throughout the house. Paul was interesting and knowledgeable, and encouraging about our forthcoming trip! we would definitely recommend!
Great place to stay, very organised, clean and space in the room, we had a very relaxing time. Also very central to Nelson restaurants. Host is great, highly recommend.
The room was very pleasant and we were very close to town. Unfortunately we happened to be busier than expected so saw little of Paul, who was very pleasant and welcoming.
Paul is a very helpful and friendly host! It has been a good stay at his place and we are really happy to stay there. The place is also very conveniently located to town that makes it so much easier for us since we did not have a car. Thank you!
