Our large home is modern and architect-designed to make best use of the sun. We are up on a hillside, with superb views and sunsets, looking across Nelson Haven and Port Nelson to the western ranges, and out to Tasman Bay. We have 3 king/queen bedrooms and one single bedroom, a big and sunny living room with good AV equipment, satellite, 55" TV and great view. Outside there are decks, terraces and BBQ for outdoor living, a spa and sauna. There is car parking on site.

The space
The house is well furnished with plenty of local art, and is full of items we have collected in our travels around the world. We have a good library of books on travel and other subjects. We have fast fibre wireless internet.
Nelson is a great base for many activities. Temperature is warm in summer and mild in winter, with more sunshine than anywhere else in New Zealand. It is a safe and small city (50,000 population) with a lively outdoor café culture and lots of places to walk or hike. Nelson region is known for its art, wine, food and outdoor activities.

In June 2009, Nelson was voted one of the top three "most charming small towns in the world" by TripAdvisor - a website with 15 million viewers per week.

Many of our exchangers and AirBnBers have told us that our home is the best they have exchanged to, both for the house and the location of Nelson.

Nelson has three major festivals each year. The Summer Festival (jazz, performances, sculpture) starts on New Year's Day. The School of Music Winter Festival runs in July, and the Nelson Arts Festival (art/performance/theatre/music) takes place in October.

If you like outdoor activities, the Nelson region offers just about everything - walks, hiking, 4 golf courses close by, kayaking, sailing, swimming, sports, moutainbiking, skiing and more. You can even walk or mountainbike in the countryside just 100 metres from our house! The region is full of cycle trails.

We will leave you a full house manual to make it easy to stay here. It includes suggestions for things to do and the best places to eat and drink.
