We stayed in the Loft for 2 nights and it was a little home away from home. The little details like freshly ground coffee, the lovely art work throughout the unit and stars above the bed at night. Also, loved the approach to recycling and Jenny went through everything regarding the unit on our arrival and then left it to... More

We stayed in the Loft apartment to celebrate my birthday. It is in a beautiful Edwardian villa, very spacious with a four poster bed and stunning views across the bay to the mountains of Abel Tasman park. The lovely hand painted textiles and art around the apartment made it all the more special. Perfect for a romantic getaway.

This was our favorite of the places we stayed at in New Zealand. We were in the Loft, which is on the second (top) floor and has spectacular views of Tasman Bay on two sides. By spectacular, I mean one of the most beautiful views we saw in New Zealand, not just one of the most beautiful hotel views. I’m... More

I booked us into Villa 10 apartments for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We stayed here for 3 nights. After looking at a lot of accomodation options in Nelson I decided on Villa 10 due to the location and view. We were defenitely not dissapointed the view is way, way more impressive than what I ever thought. Right on the... More

I cannot recommend Villa 10 Waterfront Apartments enough! We have traditionally stayed at a nearby B&B and were always quite comfortable. When planning our return to Nelson we decided a self-catering option might work better. I had walked by Villa 10 many times and thought it might be a good alternative. My partner and I stayed in the ‘Loft’ unit... More

We stayed in "the loft" and enjoyed a beautifully decorated apartment with real character and charm. It felt like a dream home away from home as we enjoyed stunning views across Tasman Bay, ate breakfast at the concertina window and enjoyed a meal and glass of wine on the balcony. The owners were friendly and helpful while also respecting our... More

My husband and I stayed at Villa 10 for 4 nights the first week of January. We stayed in the loft. It has wonderful views and the owner has decorated it with personal artwork that is perfect for the location. The breakfast food provided ( bread, yogurt, granola, fruits, eggs etc) was in the fridge for us to fix at... More

We stayed for two nights in the West Wing apartment, us in the main bedroom overlooking the verandah and the water, our two kids in the back bedroom. Jenny welcomed us to the property and showed us around - plenty of space for the family to stretch out, either reading in the afternoon sunshine outside or on the sofas in... More

Villa 10 - The Loft - is a touch of paradise in the wonderful city of Nelson. Luxury, peace and beauty all in one - we could not have asked for more. Views are exquisite, facilities great and bed comfortable! Highly recommended.

This was our 2nd stay at Villa 10 and I am pleased to say that i was just as good as the first in 2009. The top apartment has wonderful views and the decoration of the apartment is outstanding. You can tell that the owner is an artist as she really knows how to match colours to create a wonderful... More
