“Most pleasant 10 days in Nelson NZ”

Definitely 5 stars! What's not to like? Luxurious accommodations with fantastic views, comfortable bed, well-supplied, lovely garden, friendly hosts. Good in any weather. Unless you're in a wheelchair or severely incapacitated, the couple of dozen steps up & down to the unit are gradual and not difficult. (I have arthritis & use a cane) A car is a must since it's halfway up a steep hill -- parking spot included. It may not be a "full kitchen" but it's perfectly adequate. We loved every minute, and will definitely be back, if at all possible.

Liked best: The view is incomparable!
Liked least: I have arthritis so found the climb more than I would usually do, but it wasn't all that difficult -- steps have short risers and are gradual.

“Fabulous view, spacious, private, lovely apartment”

Beautiful apartiment, fabulous views and lots of extras and a great owner as many have stated. Two things to note - there is a microwave and only 1 (portable) hotplate in the kitchen (no oven), we like to cook on holidays and found this a bit difficult. There is a b-b-que on the balcony. Also the main bedroom has a (lovely) curtain rather than a door, thus if you go to bed at different times you can hear the tv more than usual.
Nevertheless it's so lovely sitting on the balcony we would happily stay here again.

“BEAUTIFUL ACCOMODATION WITH SO MANY UNEXPECTED EXTRAS”
Reviewed November 15, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

This apartment was a delight, nothing has been left wanting as far as we could see.
From the special TV, to the bathrobes, to the wonderfully comfortable bed and complimentary cereals, wine etc, to the nespresso coffee machine, this the perfect place for a relaxing break.

View is magnificent and constantly changing. Mary is always available for any queries but certainly doesn't intrude.

Arrow rock has to be one of the best places we've stayed!

“The accomodation was more than we had hoped for”
Reviewed May 22, 2011 for a stay in January 2011

Mary and Peter do beyond what they need to do and it's those touches that really count e.g fresh flowers in the bedroom. It was perfect for us and we'd definitely stay again. The only tip I can think of is to pay the taxi driver the extra $1.00 to get you up the hill to the apartment. It's worth it! (Small price to pay for the great view)

“Exceptional”
Reviewed May 19, 2011 for a stay in November 2010

This is a beautifully equipped private apartment located on the outskirts of Nelson. The view is amazing, the accommodations spacious and immaculate. The pictures on the website are accurate, if not understated. We were only able to reserve four nights between other reservations and wish we could have stayed longer. However, prospective renters should understand that this is not in downtown Nelson, which was not an issue for us. If you want to partake of the downtown nightlife it is a drive or a taxi ride.

“Absolutely fantastic!”
Reviewed February 8, 2011 for a stay in February 2011

We stayed 3 nights in the apartment and it is just great. The photos shown do not show just how fantastic it is! The views are magnificent, the bed extremely comfortable, the kitchen equipped with everything you need including a coffee machine and the little extra touches like binoculars and fresh homemade biscuits made our stay just wonderful. The apartment is walking distance to several good restaurants. We dined at Harbour Lights Cafe which was really good. You will not be disappointed if you stay here.

You have truly thought about what guests’ needs and wants are when staying in accommodation and how to make someone feel welcomed.

It is absolutely the little things you have considered in preparing the apartment for rent that will see you continue to receive such superb reviews.

Thank you for your true customer service, it is appreciated.
