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.
Guests will have their own sitting room and dining room with access to the spacious deck for relaxed evening drinks.
Candy graciously and warmly welcomed us to her beautiful home. The entire living experience was the ultimate in luxury. The view as advertised was delicious.
Utrolig sød og gæstfri vært - der var klar til at give gode råd og informationer om området...!! Flotte værelser, stue samt spisestuen med en fantastisk udsigt - god morgenmad.
Dette sted kan kun anbefales...;)
Candy and Charlie make a wonderful team and are charming hosts - very helpful with advice on what to see and do in Nelson. Their home has been BRILLIANTLY designed to take advantage of the best views that Nelson has to offer. Without doubt the best AIR BNB accomodation in Nelson, New Zealand
candy's house is amazing.We are shocked by the beautiful views.If we come to nelson again，we will live longer.Thank you candy.
I stayed for just one night between arriving at the airport and leaving next day on a bus. I was picked up from the airport by Candy, given tea and biscuits on arrival - we chatted on the balcony overlooking the wooded island and harbour mouth - and provided with a good dinner later (this is a paid-for extra - $40 when I visited). After a comfortable night and breakfast I was dropped off at the bus-stop in the morning. It's a beautiful house with a stunning view, and everything was perfect.
Amazing views, I was on a business trip and seeing the view morning and night made my trip. Great restaurants within walking distance.
Candy was wonderful - I wanted my parents to have some time to themselves for their first few nights in Nelson and they had a ball... Couldn't get enough of that view and the house and hosts were faultless.

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!
