4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2010

This is a newer property (e.g. everything works well) located in the vicinity of Walter's Bluff just a few --like 5-- minutes drive from the center of Nelson. There are sweeping views of the waters off Nelson from the living, dining rooms, and decks; turquoise to deep blues when I was there, with the mountains of Able Tasman in the distance to the west. You can walk 5 minutes from the house and hit a lovely track that leads across the bluff and over to the marker for the center of New Zealand--and of course you can carry on from there to the river and in to town if you want. The room I stayed in was simple but very clean, comfortable and quiet. The bath, which I believe is shared, is great, spacious with a big whirlpool tub and big water views out the window. They serve a nice cooked breakfast and offer a glass of wine in the late afternoon. The house is surrounded by beautifully kept gardens. The hosts were great, friendly and helpful, but unobtrusive. Their good WiFi connection was free.
