We are happy to help with travel plans and have good knowledge of the area. There are local maps, travel options and local information in the room to browse through at your leisure.
Please let me know if you have any questions. We look forward to meeting you :)
A beautiful room with a terasse overlooking Nelson´s port. all that located in a peaceful garden. It lives up to everything the adress (Mt. Pleasent av.) might indicate. Sally and Grant have been excellent and openminded hosts. If again in Nelson - I would love to stay with them again at any time.
I was only here for ~ 18 hours between coming off the Abel Tasman Walk and renting a car to do the West coast drive. Sally and Grant were fabulous, even in that short time! I was able to get a hot shower, wash and dry all of my tramping clothes, and they even picked me up from the water taxi and dropped me off in town the next morning. There were delicious cookies in my room, as well as tea and coffee fixins. An easy walk to town, ~15 minutes, for dinner, although it is high on a hill so I took a taxi back after dinner ($8). I highly recommend this airbnb as it was clean, quiet, and had everything I could have needed, even though I barely used the kitchen.
It was great to stay there, everything was very uncomplicated and nice!
Our stay was very short, as we arrived late and night and left early in the morning, but what an enjoyable experience it was! Sally helped us settle in and her restaurant recommendation was spot on! Sally and Grant's beautiful house is within walking distance to town, which was great. The room is lovely and very private. Sally and Grant even gave us great tips on what to check out in our next destination. I highly recommend booking this room!
Sally and Grant were great - so friendly and helpful. We highly recommend their place!
Sally and Grant were amazing hosts. It felt like I was staying in my own house which was a massive bonus. The location is incredible with amazing views across the water and down to the dock. I wish I had longer than 2 nights to explore Nelson but I will be back!
Fantastic hosts! Always very helpful and full of useful tips and advice to help our transition to Nelson. Excellent accommodation: comfortable, clean, and well-decorated. More importantly, very friendly hosts and excellent company over a glass of wine or pint of beer!
We had a lovely evening with Sally & Grant. Their home was beautiful & they were a charming couple. Only negative was that we didn't get to stay longer!
Sally & Grant amazing and welcoming hosts. Their house is well decorated and the room they offer is warm and tidy. Within 5 minutes by car to both beach and town. Definitely recommended!
Sally and Grant are very gracious hosts, and made me feel very at home while I stayed there. The room is clean and the bed left me feeling refreshed in the morning. I fully endorse their hospitality and room!
