This was our second visit to Villa 10 in 12 months, we loved it so much the first time, we just had to come back and stay for longer in the fantastic Loft apartment, and weren't disappointed.
Graham and Jenny can be really proud about what they have achieved here.
Once you're checked in and shown the ropes, you're left alone to get on with it (with your hosts only steps or a phone call away) in your fully equipped apartment - complete with full kitchen with dishwasher, full laundry facilities, and plenty of space. It's like having a friend's bach (Kiwi holiday home) to yourself - it's very private.
There's starter food provided - enough things for breakfast the next day or two - plus a bottle of home-made lemonade using fruit from the Villa 10 garden, along with all the cleaning powders, etc., for the dishwasher and washing machine.
The view from Villa 10 is really special: Looking across the bay, beyond Haulashore Island, to Kahurangi and Abel Tasman, it's something I wish I could wake up to each morning!
This view, along with a handful of decent waterfront restaurants in 5 minutes walking distance, plus the bars/cafes at Tahunanui being close by, more than makes up for Villa 10 being a good 20-25 minute walk into central Nelson over the hill (but a taxi is < $10 NZ if you're feeling lazy or luxuriant).
It's a great base for exploring the Nelson region, whether you're interested in visiting Abel Tasman or the Moutere wineries, even heading a bit further afield to Marlborough is an easy day trip.
