Stayed here 21st and 22nd May 2014. The Apartment was beautiful. We were upgraded to the 2 bedroom apartment. The main bedroom has a view of the water. Very large lounge/dining area overlooking the water, with views for ever. There was an outdoor dining area with to die for views. Loved stayed here. Only negatives were the very steep driveway...

Had a great stay, we received an upgrade to Apartment 2, due to it being vacant. We had a great time, the views were amazing and the location was quiet and comfortable. We will definitely stay here again and recommend it to our family and friends.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Harbour View apartments. Everything we needed including the most spectacular view of Nelson Harbour was provided. Apartment is in close proximity to restaurants, and is only a short drive into the town centre. Thank you to James for a great few days.

Had a great stay here. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a wonderful hideaway, close to restaurants and facilities. Close to the beach and easy access to the Tasman peninsula. Thanks to James for being so helpful.

Outstanding views from the deck over the 'cut' in the harbour. All the boats come through the 'cut' which is a constant visual delight. Great apartment well set out and of high quality. James was very helpful in organising things. The road up to the apartment is very steep and you need to be confident to do this. The only... More

The pictures on the net sold us on the place and we were not disappointed, amazing views, superbly appointed apartment, very comfortable bed, a luxury home away from home. Excellent hosts with friendly kiwi attitude. Can't recommend highly enough, you will love this place.

Stayed here for 3 nights in Apartment 2 and would have to be the best holiday house I have stayed in. View was amazing, can't explain how beautiful it was. The house (can't say apartment as it is house sized) was immaculately clean and there was tea, coffee and even biscuits available. There is a laundry with a washing machine... More

We stayed in the 1 bedroom downstairs. Everything was clean and modern/just like the photos. The view was amazing. There are giant windows throughout the living space that open up and give you a great view of the harbour. The kitchen was small, but perfect for our needs. It is a little far to walk from town, but the view... More

We stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment for 5 days over Xmas/New Year and had a lovely relaxing stay. The location is perfect being so close to the main town and also Tahunanui beach. The apartment was nicely laid out and set up for total relaxation - loved the couch looking out over the harbour, great to read a book... More

Our 2 bed appt had excellent views of the harbour and all the items we needed for a most enjoyable stay. We especially enjoyed being close to a superb fish shop and about a 20min walk from the the main streets in the town. Would prefer a larger bed in the main bedroom. Good fast Wifi.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Breathtaking harbour, island, bay & mountain views ensure either of the 2 apartments are ideal places from which to enjoy the magical view: from the maritime traffic in the harbour to the grand vista of Tasman Bay & the western mountain ranges. A 1 bedroom apartment is on the lower level. It has beautiful wood floors & a large living area with big sliding windows & doors. There's a compact kitchen, tiled bathroom & laundry appliances. The 2 bedroom is above. It also has a large open living area & big windows & sliding doors. There's a full kitchen & separate laundry. The higher elevation give it earlier sun & a slightly more expansive view.The property is on the hillside (away from the busy waterfront highway). Nelson's renown waterfront dining strip is very nearby, at the bottom of the hill (2 mins walk down). The township is a 4 min drive. Abel Tasman National Park is easily doable as a day trip. There is a steep driveway with good parking & turning room at the top. There are approximately 16 steps up to Apartment 1 & another 16 to Apartment 2. These are normal spaced steps with good handrails. The property is managed by James and Richard of Te Puna Wai Lodge, Nelson. We manage a range of vacation properties in the area. ... more   less
