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 been 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.
Off street parking.

Great Views is a very spacious, modern and clean (as in completely spotless) apartment that is true to its name by offering genuinely incredible views. The layout provides opportunities for visitors to spread out and feel at home. The beds are quite comfortable, and the bathroom features a separate tub and shower to take a relaxing soak or rinse.
Jan is an extremely accommodating host who goes out of her way to make guests feel welcome. Upon arrival, she gave us some excellent suggestions on things to do in the area. She also helped us find the best spot in the house to dry our laundry and even offered to post some of my brother's clothes to our next stop when he forgot them in the apartment after we left.
I truly can't say enough about Jan and Great Views. This is a must-book stay if you're planning to visit Nelson!
Our stay at Great views, Close to beach and city was a fabulous experience! Jan and Ian were warm and welcoming. They were extremely helpful with their recommendations about places to visit and how to find our way around Nelson. Jan went above and beyond our expectations by giving us a ride to the city market and to the airport to pick up our rental car. She even packed a lunch for us for our visit to Abel Tasman, a most unexpected but most appreciated treat. Ian and Jan's apartment was perfect for three of us but could accommodate more people. It was spotless, beautifully decorated and I can't think of a thing that was not provided (kitchen, bathroom were very well stocked with necessary items). And . . . . . . what a view! We could sit on the deck and look over the beach, bay, and into the mountains. The sunsets were spectacular!! Ian was most helpful in giving us driving tips. This stay was a perfect beginning to our visit to the South Island. We would go back in a heartbeat!
Unsere Gastgeber waren während unserem Aufenthalt abwesend. Bei der Übergabe erhielten wir alles erklärt, so dass wir uns in der sehr schönen Wohnung mit fantastischem Ausblick gut zurecht fanden. Einige Tipps, was man Unternehmen kann und viel Infomaterial in der Wohnung trugen zu einem sehr schönen Aufenthalt bei.
Jan is one of the best hosts that we've come across on Airbnb. She is easy to communicate with and is committed to making her guests feel at home. The place is unbeatable--it offers great views of the beach and is only a short drive from the shops in town. The BBQ outside is the perfect way to cook dinner. The space is modern and clean. You won't be disappointed staying here!
What a treat! Jan and Ian are truly super hosts! We were welcomed in style with local wine and the views alone take your breath away. I savored every sip of coffee out on the deck of our room taking in the beautiful ocean view. The beds are very comfortable and the apartment was spotless clean. We all loved the rain style shower-head with lots of great water pressure too.
The pictures are what sold me on this place but even they do not do it justice. The beach was fantastic and I loved watching the kiteboarders in the windy afternoons. It is also very convenient to get to shops and Jan recommended 'The Boatshed' restaurant right down on the water which was just a phenomenal meal!
Our first night here the water heater decided to have a percussion practice at 2am, banging and clanging. These unexpected things just happen in life, but Jan and Ian really went above and beyond the call for superior hosting and handled the situation in a remarkable way! It really is the mark of a fantastic host when something unexpected or bad goes on and the host can handle it so well.
We loved this place so much from the pictures and the reviews that we had booked it out twice in two weeks. The next stay is with my Auntie and Uncle next week and we are so happy that we made that decision to stay here again, I can't think of any better place to stay in Nelson!
My husband and I are into everything outdoors. I am a avid cyclist and my husband plays bowls.
We also have an Apartment here in Nelson that we rent out on Airbnb......we live above it and enjoy meeting people from around the world who stay with us.
We are passionate about living in Nelson and want everyone to experience this wonderful slice of paradise. We also love to travel to far off places....having new experiences.
