We just completed a really great stay in Nicola's villa. It was exactly as pictured and in a great location for beautiful mornings and evening sunsets. Nicola was a great host, setting us up with recommendations and phone numbers we would need for the weekend. The villa was also equipped with all the basics we needed: coffee for the mornings,...

We really enjoyed our stay at Abel Tasman Villa. The villa was extremely clean and impeccably maintained. The queen bedroom with the views over the water was lovely and the bed very comfortable. Nicola, who lives in the villa below, was attentive and helpful and although there are quite a lot of stairs to climb, we did not find that... More

The villa satisfied all our needs and more.......well appointed throughout, spotlessly clean, wrap around deck, views to die for. Nicola could not have been more helpful in making our stay the relaxing experience we had hoped for. We would have no hesitation in returning to the villa in the future.

Fantastic views out on the deck but also from the master bedroom. Nicola was very helpful as we arrived. She explained all the features of the villa, the well appointed kitchen, the bathrooms and the spare bedroom and second bathroom. She left us some fruit, chocolates and a bottle of bubbly from one of the local vineyards. Nicola also had... More

A stairway to a magical holiday destination! We loved waking up to the mornings to panoramic views and in the evening watching the sunset over Nelson. This villa has all the mod cons, and with two bedrooms (main has large ensuite with bath) it feels as though you have plenty of space for two couples. The lovely decor is very... More

From check in to check out we really appreciated Nicolas attention to detail - making sure we had garaging for our motorbikes, helping me find a dentist in time of need, but most of all - that view. Nelson - what a treasure. Thanks for having us Nicola, hope we'll be back.

The small apartment it'self is very pretty with lovely views. It's location is in the hills overlooking the shipping harbour. It's also placed just behind the owners own house which was a bit to close for us. neighbours have to walk right past the windows to access their own houses. We felt a bit watched.

The Abel Tasman Villa is located in the port hills area of Nelson overlooking the entrance to a large harbour. All ocean going freighters, yachts, sail boats, fishing boats & kayaks enter through the cut which is an opening in the bolder bank. The views are something you never tire of. Beyond Haulashore Island & the cut is the Tasman... More
