By far one of the prettiest parts of Nelson and the villa was filled with sunshine during the day and stars at night. A real find - and so convenient with a delightful 10 min stroll into town down historic South Street and past the Cathedral. Paul was 'super cool' according to my son - and made us feel extremely welcome. We would highly recommend this Airbnb - one of our faves.
Beautiful room and home! Exceptionally clean. Perfect location for walking around Nelson! Highly recommend this stay. Thanks Paul!
We stayed with Paul for three days during our month long trip to NZ. He was a fantastic host, always ready with recommendations for sightseeing and restaurants in the area. His home is very well situated, being a stone's throw from the main street in Nelson with its shops and restaurants and it is also charming with a very warm feel. Our only regret is that we did not have much time to get to know him better.
Travellers could not do any better than to stay with Paul whilst in the area.
The skylight villa is a beautiful house in a very nice and quiet neighbourhood, yet very centrally located. The room is very charming, I felt at home right away!
Paul is a very easy-going, humorous and helpful person. He was so nice to pick me up from the bus, helped me with my travel plans, and chatting with him about travelling and life in general was a lot of fun! (-;
Can highly recommend his place, would love to come back!
Paul has a lovely house and we had a room on the ground floor. Plenty of space and nice and clean. Good location.
Paul was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable with lots of attention to detail. The muesli and fruit breakfast was just right for me. The location was also ideal for walking into the town. I did not need a lift from the airport but it was very kind of Paul to offer one. thanks Paul
About the Host, Paul
I'm a 50 something ex-pat (USA) living here in New Zealand for the last 20 or so 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...
