Sobald man die steile Strasse auf den Hügel geschafft hat bietet sich ein spektakulärer Ausblick über das Meer und die Umgebung von Nelson. Das Cottage war geräumig und zweckmäßig eingerichtet (ein Fön wäre von Vorteil). Avner war ein bemühter Gastgeber, der uns mit selbst gebackenem Brot verwöhnt hat.
Negativ war die finanzielle Abwicklung. Wir mussten ca 30% nachzahlen obwohl wir nichts an der Buchung verändert hatten, weil Airbnb angeblich falsche Preislisten hatte.
Unangenehm dabei war die Diskussion über Wechselkurse, Bezahlung nur mit Bargeld - keine Kreditkarte.
We had the most amazing stay here. The property is so special - we fell in love at first sight and asked if we could extend our stay within 5 minutes of our arrival. We stayed in the cottage and it was perfect. We loved waking up to the breathtaking views each morning and Avner kept us stocked with lots of fresh food from his garden. It is a little off the beaten track so you feel like you are getting away from it all, but it is close enough for convenient exploration of Abel Tasman, Nelson, wine country, etc. To top it off, Avner is just a wonderful guy and we felt so welcome in his home. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else if we make it back to Nelson!
Amazing views and place. Great location close to Nelson and far enough removed to really find peace and quiet. Aver the host is extremely helpful, accommodating and knowledgable. Couldn't have asked for a better host. Our stay was delightful and accommodation comfortable and contemporary. If passing through Nelson make sure to stop by Big Sky!
What a place! The view is breathtaking and the accommodation is comfortable and stylish. The host is great - very welcoming, knowledgeable, and helpful. It's far enough out of Nelson for some real peace & quiet but still close enough to be convenient. Highly recommended!
Highly recommended. The accommodations are just right (private, modern, very comfortable), the view couldn't be better and the host is friendly, knowledgeable and enormously helpful. We were very well taken care of. It's a must-stay if you're planning to spend the night in or near Nelson!
About the Host, Avner
A cosmopolitan background, artistic, creative, with a realistic view on our "reality" and a positive approach to the now and the future. As a host I will provide you with what I myself would expect, not just from a business but from a friend or family, and will mostly leave you to enjoy the place.
