Our family of 5 (boys 17,19 and 21) stayed here for from December 22-25. It was a wonderful place to base for a Nelson visit. The Last Straw Cottage was one of the most well-appointed homes we have ever stayed. Just about every detail and need was covered, from fresh flowers, to fantastic breakfast foods (homemade muffins & bread, fruits, bacon, freshly laid eggs, and fresh squeezed juice). The kitchen and bathroom had everything you needed. Laundry room if needed. As already addressed in another review, there is only one bathroom (and separate toilet room) and it's located downstairs, but this no big deal for our family. Lots of books and games, free internet and tv, outside space to walk and play (great games of croquet in the backyard) and four bikes to ride around the neighborhood. It's rural and lovely -- woke to the sounds of cows, sheep and chickens. Easy drive to Nelson, Abel Tasman and other great spots. We loved our stay and would highly recommend a visit.
