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 12/01/2013 to Thursday 17/01/2013.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Great Views, Close to Beach & city.
    Views were amazing, the apartment worked well for the 4 of us even though the kitchenette was "cosy". Having the BBQ outside for our use was great and found our host, Jan, was very helpful and friendly. Would certainly recommend this as an ideal stop over in Nelson.

  • We had a wonderful time in Nelson and the views from the appartment are simply fantastic. This is definetely a place I would like to stay in again as there are so many things to do around Nelson. Jan and her husband are also lovely.

  • Ian and Jan were wonderful hosts. The apartment is modern, immaculately clean, and has breathtaking views from just about every room. They were very accommodating given we were traveling with muddy bikes and it stormed while we were there. This was a perfect place to explore Nelson and Abel Tasman!

  • 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.

  • 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!
