We had a wonderful stay!

The house was superb, and the location could NOT have been better..

Right in the centre of town, so we didn?t use our cars all weekend.! ..we could go to the East St vegetarian restaurant on both nights,

no-one having to worry about who?s going to drive, and stroll back home..

BUT!! also, right on the riverbank, peaceful and wonderful view of the river, walks and strolls or just going across the road to check out the ducks and whitebaiters there.

The Nelson region is known for its year-round sunshine, golden beaches, national parks, boutique wineries, micro breweries and a large creative community of working artists.

Nelson is within easy distance to three national parks and two of New Zealand’s Great Walks including the Abel Tasman Coast Track (New Zealand’s most popular track, a coastal wonderland of sea, sky, rocky headlands and bright golden beaches) and the Heaphy Track (New Zealand’s longest track).

The Nelson Lakes National Park is set amidst the mountains and glaciated valleys South of Nelson city and features beech forests and the beautiful jewel-like lakes, Rotoiti and Rotoroa. Kahurangi, New Zealand's second-largest national park, comprises 450,000 hectares of mostly upland wilderness, with magnificent three to four-day hiking trails.

Nelson attractions and activities offer a great range of adventurous outdoor activities including, scenic cruises, art attractions, canoeing & kayaking, horse riding, scenic flights, canyoning and much more—you name it, you can do it!

Add to this locally grown produce, freshly caught seafood, great markets on Wednesday and Saturday, historical streetscapes and waterfront restaurants and you'll see that it offers a thoroughly pleasurable base for your holiday break!
