THE HOUSE & LOCATION
Our house is a wooden Victorian 2-storey villa on a on crooked, leafy little street in a quiet and very central location. It’s comfortable and unpretentious … just like us! Car parking is available on the street immediately outside the house.
A 7-minute walk takes you into the heart of Nelson with its cafes, bars, shops, movies, art gallery, museum and live theatre. It's only a few more minutes to river and hillside walks, 25 minutes on foot to the sea.
If you spot the police car in the street view on G Maps do not be alarmed: our friendly local community policemen lives just across the road. Need we say that the neighbourhood is very safe? And that safe on-street parking is available for your car?
Our family arrived in Nelson in the late 1800's (from Ireland) so our connections to the place and the people are wide and deep. We'd enjoy sharing our networks and local knowledge with you.
On the other hand, we are happy for you to be totally independent and simply use the place as a springboard for your own explorations.
Children are welcome - our place is ideal for family or small groups . Check to see if we can reconfigure our two guest rooms to suit families or small groups. TARIFF FOR EACH CHILD IS $17.50 PER CHILD PER NIGHT.
Basically, we live upstairs. The guest bedrooms, sitting room, bathroom, and toilet are downstairs.
Two rooms are available - the Pink and the Green Room.
