Interaction with Guests
I am happy to answer any questions before your booking and during your stay. I will be there to greet guests in person to give a brief orientation. I live on the main floor so I am available most of the time, and guests will have as much privacy as they like.
Uphill is the closest neighborhood to downtown Nelson and historic Baker Street. There are many heritage homes to enjoy viewing as you walk to town.
There is public transit very close by, the bus stop is just a block away. There is on-street parking just steps from the front door. The shuttle from Castlegar Airport will drop you off at the Hume Hotel or directly to our place for an extra charge.
Quiet time is observed on the property from 9pm to 7am because we have 2 small children.
What a wonderful place to stay! Clean, quiet, well-situated (as long as you can handle the hills, which are unavoidable in nelson). Katherine was a great host and I'll definitely be recommending this place to others.
Laura was wonderful to communicate with leading up to the booking. It was a pleasure to meet her and chat with her. I was pleased to hear the suite was only a couple of blocks from her sister's place. Laura took really good care of the suite and left it in perfect condition. We would be pleased to host her anytime!
We had a wonderful time! Katherine immediately made us feel at home, greeting us with a warm welcome. The apartment itself had everything we could possibly want there, including a dishwasher, washer and dryer and Internet. Really nice touches include apples in the fruit bowl, as well as juice and coffee to use at our disposal. We love Nelson and enjoyed staying in Katherine's garden apartment. We hope to return soon.
Katherine and her family were great; friendly and welcoming but gave us our space too! The suite was clean and quiet, and we were able to tuck the extra cot next to the bed in the bedroom to create a nest space for our son to sleep. Access to downtown was easy by car or on foot.
This was our first experience with Airbnb after it was suggested by a friend and we couldn't have been more pleased! Katherine kept in touch leading up to our arrival and stopped by after we were settled in to say hello and see if we needed anything. The suite was just perfect for our needs! AND the view! You can't beat waking up to that everyday! We will certainly be back and would love to stat here again!
Great, cozy space in Nelson! Easy walk to downtown and to local trails. Katherine was a great host!
Katherine was a wonderful host. We had a great time staying at Cedar Street. It is close to downtown so we would have walked everywhere during the summer. We did choose to drive the few blocks to downtown as we are not use to walking around in snow and ice covered sidewalks and my husband had recently injured his knee.
The suite was beautiful with amazing views of the the west arm of kootany lake. Although, the lake may not be visible during the summer due to the abundance of trees in the area. Katherine greeted us on arrival and provided us with some information about the area and the ski whitewater ski area. The suite is very spacious, has a well stocked kitchen, and an amazing large shower. They did a wonderful job on the remodel with a great use of space, and windows that provide an abundance of natural light.
Having access to WiFi helped us navigate the area with ease in addition to the brochures and local maps provided made it a breeze.
Katherine also made sure we knew we could email her anytime with any questions as she checked emails regularly.
One night we had a door of our car not close all the way leaving on the inside light, they were kind enought to come down and ask us about it, which saved us from waking to a dead car battery in the morning.
I would recommend Cedar Street. We had privacy during our stay and enjoyed the helpfulness of our hosts.
Katherine's garden suite was an extremely pleasant place to stay. The suite is spacious and had all the features and amenities that made our stay extra comfortable, such as a wonderful bathroom, dishwasher and washing machine. The space is well distributed and private, and located in a beautiful street, walking distance to downtown Nelson. Katherine is a friendly and welcoming host. Having stayed there for a week, we would definitely enjoy staying there again!
