About this listing
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.
We are in a premium residential area of town close to the waterfront. Neighbours are all friendly and there are pleasant walks or running circuits from the house.
There is a bus to town or beach which stops at the bottom of the road. Otherwise town is a 20 minute walk - very pleasant along the waterfront, or a bit quicker over the hill. The airport is 10 minutes away, a NZ$22 taxi ride.
