“Feels like home, but with a better view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2010

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.

We stayed in the Westwing for 1 week with a young baby. Jenny supplied all we needed for our daughter including cot, high chair, change mat. The westwing is very child friendly with a beautiful terrace overlooking the sea.
We will be back...

Loved the loft apt. Jenny and Graham could not have been nicer and we felt right at home quickly. Apt has everything you need, amazing views, beautifully decorated, beautiful gardens and an easy walk to some amazing restaurants right on the water front. The hosts have thought of everything including some very thoughtful touches. And the loft bed is very comfortable

Our second stay at Villa 10 and still maintained at the same standard as in 2006 when were first visited Nelson. A place where you can walk in, put your feet up and let the world go by and a great view to relax too.

We stayed in the loft at Villa 10 for our honeymoon / wedding night for two nights.
It really is a charming place. Beautifully decorated throughout with textiles from Jenny the owner. It is a place that really reflects the true spirit of Nelson. Lovely little touches like the local artwork on the walls, music especially compiled of local musicians and we loved the homemade lemonade!
Our time was short but truly memorable.
A perfect end to a perfect day.

Graham and Jenny run a top rate operation. They are delightful people and made us feel at home.

We had the two room suite, which was a charming mix of Victorian funk and spectacular views. The bed was so comfortable and the room looked out over Tasman Bay. The fridge was stocked with fresh breakfast fixings and there was a huge bowl on fruit, much of it picked from the garden. The porch overlooked the Bay.

It is an easy walk to nearby waterfront restaurants and a bit tougher walk to the center of Nelson. We wish we had a week to enjoy this place, but only had two nights before we moved on. The view from our porch was so inviting that we ate our dinner there one night while we enjoyed the sunset.
