Below are some comments we have had about our Apartment.
“This apartment is in a lovely location, well laid out, spotlessly clean and the hosts are fantastic.
We came over from Picton for the Weetbix Tryathlon. Unfortunately the weather on the Friday night was so horrendous at home that we could not leave. Fortunately the weather died down on the Saturday so we ended up coming over that evening.
Jan was exceptionally understanding and helpful over our circumstances, I can’t say how much I appreciated it.
I have working in 5 star hotels throughout New Zealand and Australia. The standards here are-in bach terms- equal to any of those.
The selfish side of me doesn’t want to recommend this place as I want it to be available to me each time I go to Nelson, but as this income allows them to visit their precious grandchildren, I can’t possibly not recommend it.
Thanks so much for a great-albeit too brief-stay in your lovely apartment. Katharine”

“This apartment is fantastic. It’s a great location. The apartment is lovely inside, everything new, clean and everything you need. The bathrooms are lovely too. The views are great, and we could use a BBQ every night which made it so much easier with small children. It’s lovely to wake up to sea views. There are games and books for the children to use too and they loved the big teddies Jan put in their room! The hosts were very helpful and friendly and went out of their way to ensure we had a comfortable stay. Don’t tell everyone of this great find as we want to stay again next year!”

There is something special about Jan and Ian and about their lovely apartment. Experienced hosts, they made us all welcome with their warm, friendly manner. The apartment is spacious, spotless, beautifully appointed (including furniture crafted by Ian), and boasts wonderful sea views. Jan told us about local walking tracks. Every morning we walked, or staggered up the Tamaki St steps for more panoramic views. Tahuna Beach is only a short walk down the hill from the apartment. Jan and Ian are genuinely interested in the comfort of their guests. The apartment on Stansell provides a most indulgent, relaxing and memorable holiday.
Stayed from Saturday (phone number hidden) Thursday 17/01/2013.
We will interact with our Guests as much or as little as they wish.
We will answer all questions .... Or at least try.
So please come stay with us .... Share a BBQ ....A wine or just conversation. ..... It's your call.
There is a Bus going Into the city .... Sometimes directly from outside The Apartment .... Sometimes you have to take a walk down the hill to catch it.
We were four people staying at Jan's Apt and we absolutely appreciate to be there for six nights. We also appreciate Jan and Ian very much. We like to walk to Nelson. We highly recommand Jan Apt and we hope to come back one day. Thank you Jan and Ian.
Fabulous house. Great views. Recommended.
Great views great spot awesome hosts
We stayed at Jan and Ian's apartment on December 8 through 10 and loved being there. It is a beautiful place with stunning views and a short drive to the city and beaches. They are wonderful hosts who take loving care of their property and we wished we could have spent a week with them. We highly recommend staying here if you get an opportunity.
A breathtakingly beautiful house and location. While we were only there two nights, we enjoyed every bit of it - the comfortable beds for a great night's sleep (very quiet), the living room to chat about the next day's activities and share photos and, best of all, the decks to sit and enjoy the view of the sea and the stars at nights.
Jan was a great hostess.
My only regret - our stay was much too short! We will definitely be back.
Jan and Ian are incredible hosts and the view from their place of Tahunanui Beach is absolutely amazing. Jan and Ian's place was our first stop (myself, my husband and two daughters ages 5 and 3) in New Zealand and we couldn't have had a better place to be. Jan was a wealth of knowledge for us of places and ideas for us to visit and she went above and beyond making our girls feel welcome and have fun! Their home and rental unit is beautiful and in an excellent location. Thanks to them our introduction to New Zealand has been even better than we hoped, and I'm sure we'll be back again!
Great place to stay- was there over a weekend with 2 other couples. Close to the airport, and handy walk down the hill to Tahunanui. Far away from the supermarket, so a little bit difficult without a car. Tonnes of boardgames, spare blankets, and fully equipped kitchen. Beds were comfy, and the bathroom is really spacious and modern. Neighbourhood friendly and quiet- great place for families and quiet couples. The access to wifi was very handy, and the pick up from the airport made our holiday really easeful.
Tahunanui is very quiet in the winter- would be an excellent place to come back and stay in the summer.
Jan is a very enthusiastic host!
Facilities were exactly as shown on pictures; bedrooms were spacious and setting very contemporary; kitchenette and living/dining area are not as conducive to large family cooking and gathering as bedroom space would afford.
We really enjoyed the path Jan recommended for walking to downtown Nelson which included fantastic views (stop in on Washington Street in the little convenience store that says "Mary's pies"; they are delicious); it took us more than 30 minutes to reach Trafalgar Street (Kush coffee off Hardy Street is really good) and it is a steady steep uphill going back up (we ended the night at the Free House on Collingston(?) at river end of Hardy and took a cab back (only 15 NZ$; they have a great system there as restaurants are set up to have direct contact with cab company)
The accommodations exceded our expectations, glorious views of the beaches, bay, and sunsets. Jan and Ian were gracious and friendly hosts, with a wealth of information on things to see and do in the area. The rooms overlook the bay and it is a short walk/drive to the beach. The city centre is minutes away and we enjoyed exploring and visiting with the local shopkeepers. Our rooms were spacious and airy and very modern and clean. I will definitely stay here again when I return to the South Island.
On our 4 weeks New-Zealand Trip we also had arranged for a 4 night stay in Nelson. On Airbnb we found Jan's huge Apartment with 3 bedrooms, which was for us 2 far too big, but we liked the modern design of this very attractive House on a hill with beautiful views. It was the perfect place for checking out Nelson and its surroundings. As the wheather was mostly fine, we could have our breakfast just in front of our apartment whith lots of privacy. We very much liked the place and appreciated Jan's ideas what to do, i.e. the popular Saturday market in Nelson. Thank you Jan for the very comfortable home you created for your guests. There are many great Restaurants in that area, which certainly can satisfy your food desires as the small kitchen in the apartment with only a portable hotplate, did not encourage us to prepare our own cooked meals with fresh produce of the local markets. But certainly it is a great place to stay when in Nelson.
