Carolyn our host of this beautiful property welcomed us as we arrived and make us feel very welcome. The house and property was beyond our expectations. The house had everything we needed for our 4 days stay. I have to say the view was the top of our list. The house was very comfortable for 4 people. We loved sing the bbq and the hot tub was great to enjoy at the end of the day. We will make sure we let our friends and family know about this gem of a home. Thank you, we will be back :-)
Carolyn and her home were great! The listing was as described, really beautiful home and location. She was there to greet us when we arrived, gave us the tour, and everything we needed while we were there. She was really helpful in providing suggestions for things to do around the Nelson area as well. Overall, a great host, and great experience for us on our trip to Nelson! Thank you.
We had a lovely stay and greatly enjoyed the beautiful house. Carolyn was a perfect host, very attentive and helpful.
Absolutely wonderful! The location is great, just .5km north of the bridge and less than a 5min car ride into downtown Nelson. The hot-tub was perfect after a long-day on the slopes! In addition to a spacious, well-deserved layout, Carolyn did a fantastic job at providing directions, options to eat-out, places to explore (the hot-springs was awesome), and was very accommodating upon our arrival. We are definitely coming back next year and are already looking forward to it! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
Beautiful home as depicted in the listing photos. Carolyn was extremely helpful in organizing activities. We will return soon.
Carolyn's place was perfect for our family! The house is beautiful and well stocked with everything you need. The hot tub was such a nice treat overlooking the lake. It was really comfortable and I would recommend it to anyone considering staying here!
Carolyn's house was perfect! On the quiet part of nelson but 3 min to downtown.
Carolyn is like a mom and helped us out where ever she could! We had a awesome time there! If you need a place to stay in nelson, thats the place you want to be!
About the Host, Carolyn
I'm an empty nester who enjoys the outdoors, traveling and meeting new people. I have to spend at least an hour everyday doing a walk, bike, ski, kayak, hike whatever gets me out there for fresh air and freedom. I have a Jack Russell who loves to come along for the adventure.
While in Nelson, feel free to ask me or my partner for tips on day trips, hiking/biking trails and things to do and places to go, we'll help you make the most of your stay whatever the level of your activity is.
