The space

Our traditional spacious family house is in Nelson's dress circle on the Port Hills. We have the best view in town, out over Tasman Bay taking in the port entrance "The Cut", Abel Tasman National Park in the distance and snow covered Mt Arthur. Spend hours just gazing and daydreaming!

2 bedrooms available, both with sea views, with own separate bathroom. Large (palatial!) guest sitting room with adjoining breakfast room. Self serve breakfast of fruit, yoghurt and muesli is included in the rate. Tea and coffee is available any time. Home cooked dinner with a glass of Nelson wine is available on request with some advance notice. (NZ$40)

(Please note: if you book for 2 and would like 2 bedrooms instead of sharing a double, there is a supplement of NZ$40 payable on arrival ie a single supplement on the 2nd room)

Nelson city centre with galleries, cafes, bars, restaurants, movies etc. is a 20 minute walk. Nelson's famous Boatshed Restaurant is just a 5 minute walk away along the waterfront. Also on the waterfront are fish and chips and 2 other waterfront restaurants/cafes plus sailing excursions and ferry - plenty to choose from. There is high tide swimming at the bottom of our road and we are only a 15 minute walk from Tahunanui's enormous sandy swimming beach where you can kite surf or windsurf with the cool dudes.

Bus to town at the bottom of the road if you don't feel like walking.

Guest access

Guests will have their own sitting room and dining room with access to the spacious deck for relaxed evening drinks.

Other things to note

If you are on a tour of the South Island you may also be interested in our stylish Methven holiday house which is also available on airbnb under the listing South Island ski golf and fish. Methven is a popular small rural town on the Canterbury Plains just 100km from Christchurch and at the base of Mt Hutt, a winter ski area. It's very handy for walks in the mountains, near to 2 excellent golf courses and a scenic relaxing spot to spend a few days.

My boyfriend and I loved staying in Candy's gorgeous home in Nelson! We stayed here for two nights on either side of completing the Abel Tasman track, and we could not recommend this any higher! Everything was perfect -- the accommodations are gorgeous and spotlessly clean, the house (and guest bedroom) have a spectacular view, and it's quite easy to walk from the house to dinner on the water or into the center of town. Candy is a tremendous host; she truly went above and beyond, not only making us feel at home, but treating us to many special touches to make our stay convenient and comfortable. We loved meeting her and staying in this perfect room! The croissants and amazing shower are extra bonuses - especially for a pair of hungry trampers. Loved this place.

Candy was very nice and really respected our privacy. We enjoyed the beautiful floors, beautiful views and just hanging out on the front deck. It was a very comfortable set up for two couples. I was surprised that every thing was much more upscale than I excepted. Candy had the best eggs in NZ. We got to meet the hens along with enjoying beautiful flowers through out the house from the garden!

We are empty nesters, keeping up the sport and outdoor stuff. We are into sailing, skiing, tennis, cycling, running. Charlie is a Professor in Wildlife Management and I am a school software consultant. I work at home. We have 2 grown up children, one a restaurant/bar owner and the other a doctor, both living in Auckland. We came to live here in 1988 from England. We still travel back there every year or so and enjoy taking in a cycle or ski side trip in Europe.
We enjoy hosting people at our house in Nelson and sharing this rather fine character home!
