My husband and I stayed at Sunshine Cottage for 4 nights of March 19 - 22, 2014. Lovely and simple cottage, with a beautiful view of the ocean on top of a hill. We enjoyed our meals on the decking looking across the waters towards the city. Sue and Mike were great hosts, with simple touches of a "welcome note"... More

We are just back from a weekend in nelson and feel so happy to have found this wonderful accommodation. The views are the best I have EVER seen, quite breath taking. I only wish we could have stayed longer as we were just getting into life 'up a hill'. A great place for little ones too as so much to... More

I could run out of superlatives to describe our two-night stay here but the main theme is this was the best place we stayed on our 22-day circle of the South Island. So quiet and peaceful, top-of-the-mountain views, comfortable with everything you need for self contained cooking and relaxing, and the famil who owns it could not have been nicer... More

We had an amazing stay at the Sun Top cottage. The views were breath taking. The cottage itself was beautiful, large, cosy, private,quiet and well furnished with incredible views of the city and the sea. The hosts Sue and Rachel were warm,friendly and extremely helpful. Nelson that has the maximum number of sunny days in all of NZ was having... More

We had been wanting to stay here for awhile and it was no let down, great views all round. We stayed in Meg's Cottage and it was well equipped with everything, though soon it will need a bigger heater coming into winter. Wifi was good and we would gladly stay again, hosts nice and friendly

What a beautiful and peaceful place. Staying on this family farm was more relaxing then I could ever imaged. Overlooking the lambs grazing while watching the sun set on the water. It lowers my blood pressure just thinking of it!

My husband and I stayed in Sunshine Cottage for five nights and the experience will remain a highpoint of our two month trip in NZ. Others have written of the farm and the steep road in, so I will address the Sunshine Cottage. This older cottage is set apart from the other cottages and from the owners' houses, so it... More

A little difficult to find and then up a one lane winding one mile steep path to a simple slice of paradise located on a sheep, goat and beef farm. The entire family (Sue, Mike,Rachel and Wayne- don't forget Christian and Ashton ) are at your beckon call. My reception was my name welcoming me on a white board and... More

Wow!! Where to start? We had an amazing stay in the Suntop Cottage. The views are incredible and the cottage itself is beautiful. We loved the little touches like the fresh flowers and the welcome note. Sue and Rachel were marvellous in giving lots of advice on what do in the area and introducing us to the lovely animals on...

This is what New Zealand is all about! The family (owners) were very hospitable and the cottage was roomie. We had beautiful views every which way we turned. We stayed in City Lights cottage. I loved the neighboring sheep and the quiet.
