The SpaceCosy, colourful loft bedroom with views to the sea and across the surrounding neighbourhood. You will sleep well and deeply in this relaxing loft oasis ...feel the calm and the good vibrations.
Please note that our loft room has ladder access only, so will not be suitable for anyone that is unable to climb up or down ladders or young children with no sense of balance that cannot be carried or restrained. Will be fine for babies who cannot crawl yet or older children for whom risk of falling down the stairs is not a concern. We do also have another room listed under "The Tardis with sea & city views" - if available this is probably better suited for those that don't like the idea of ladder access.
We do have a portacot with bedding, high chair, etc. available free of charge if you are travelling with a baby and require them. Guest AccessLarge open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area and use of bathroom. Various sunny and relaxing outdoor areas, including large deck and balconies. You are welcome to use the washing machine anytime.
Unlimited WiFi access, coffee & tea making facilities are included in price. Please note that we no longer provide breakfasts and/or dinners, but feel free to make use of our kitchen to do your own cooking. There is all sorts of kitchen equipment you are welcome to use, such as juicer, blender, food processor, rice cooker, slow cooker, etc.
This is a great place to relax and enjoy life, and as a base to access Nelson and everything the surrounding region has to offer. Interaction with GuestsPlease feel at home while you are here, which means you will be wholeheartedly welcomed as part of the menagerie that can be our family's life during your stay. But if you would prefer just to do your own thing, then that's perfectly okay too. We are friendly and love talking to people, swapping stories, ideas and learning new things, albeit that sometimes life can get busy with work, child's activities and other interests. But rest assured will always take the time to help you find information about things you might want to do while you are here, etc.
Please note that a pre-schooler lives here too, most of the time. He has a happy, cheeky and fun temperament, is not overly noisy and sleeps well so shouldn't disturb you. The NeighborhoodQuiet neighbourhood just a 15 minute walk or 3 minute drive to town, public swimming pool, movie theatre, restaurants, cafes, pubs, museum, supermarkets, parks, river and 'Centre of New Zealand' strolls, etc.
20 min walk or very short drive to the beautiful Tahuna beach where you will find swimming, kite surfing, paddleboarding, cafes and children's playgrounds. Or stroll down to the yacht-filled marina for a looksee.
Also just a short drive to the airport and bus station. We are happy to pick you up/drop off if you require and we are available. When you stay with us you are just a 10 min walk (or 2 min drive) to the main iSite information centre, which is also the pick-up/drop-off point for the bus to and from Abel Tasman National Park. Getting AroundEasy to walk, drive or catch a bus from town to wherever you may wish to go. We can also usually pick you up/drop you off to and from airport, bus station, etc. if you don't have your own transport and we are available.
If you have your own car there is street parking outside our house.
Note that we do live in the Port Hills, so please be prepared to walk up a hill to get here if walking. However, I walk it regularly pushing a growing boy in a pram, so if you are walk fit then you shouldn't find it too difficult. Other Things to NoteSelf-catering, please feel free to use our kitchen and equipment, crockery, cutlery, etc. Tea and coffee making facilities provided.
My partner is partially blind and so a very friendly and well behaved guide dog is in residence here sometimes. We also have backyard chooks - firmly ensconced in their coop and run - but if they are laying we are happy to share their delicious eggs with you!
