    Our first choice when we stay in Nelson
    This was our second time staying here and again we weren't disappointed. Convenient location and excellent hosts. Rooms are are great size. Showers have awesome water pressure. The only criticism we have is that the queen bed in our room wasn't very comfy, the girls said their single beds were super comfy.The girls enjoyed there swim in the pool 😁 Thanks once again, we recommend you guys to anyone needing accommodation in Nelson

    Good value
    Close to the beach and with several cafes and restaurants nearby. Owners very friendly and helpful, though our room wasn't made up, so we had to ask for fresh towels. Good value for the price we paid.
