What a great apartment. Super clean, spacious, great amenities, beautiful view and quiet. After roughing it for a week in Hokitika, Marahau and Abel Tasman, it was a treat being in the Nelson Apartment. The bed was comfortable and the linens high quality. We enjoyed sipping wine and watching the sunset from the lovely balcony. At night, we enjoyed a few movies from a large selection of movies. I highly recommend this apartment, it is an exception value considering the price and the amenities. The only difficulty was finding the right driveway to pull into--it took us a few tries to get it right but that is just a function of the hill upon which the homes are perched.

“Most pleasant 10 days in Nelson NZ”

Definitely 5 stars! What's not to like? Luxurious accommodations with fantastic views, comfortable bed, well-supplied, lovely garden, friendly hosts. Good in any weather. Unless you're in a wheelchair or severely incapacitated, the couple of dozen steps up & down to the unit are gradual and not difficult. (I have arthritis & use a cane) A car is a must since it's halfway up a steep hill -- parking spot included. It may not be a "full kitchen" but it's perfectly adequate. We loved every minute, and will definitely be back, if at all possible.

Liked best: The view is incomparable!
Liked least: I have arthritis so found the climb more than I would usually do, but it wasn't all that difficult -- steps have short risers and are gradual.

“Fabulous view, spacious, private, lovely apartment”

Beautiful apartiment, fabulous views and lots of extras and a great owner as many have stated. Two things to note - there is a microwave and only 1 (portable) hotplate in the kitchen (no oven), we like to cook on holidays and found this a bit difficult. There is a b-b-que on the balcony. Also the main bedroom has a (lovely) curtain rather than a door, thus if you go to bed at different times you can hear the tv more than usual.
Nevertheless it's so lovely sitting on the balcony we would happily stay here again.

“BEAUTIFUL ACCOMODATION WITH SO MANY UNEXPECTED EXTRAS”
Reviewed 16 November 2011 for a stay in November 2011

This apartment was a delight, nothing has been left wanting as far as we could see.
From the special TV, to the bathrobes, to the wonderfully comfortable bed and complimentary cereals, wine etc, to the nespresso coffee machine, this the perfect place for a relaxing break.

View is magnificent and constantly changing. Mary is always available for any queries but certainly doesn't intrude.

Arrow rock has to be one of the best places we've stayed!

“The accomodation was more than we had hoped for”
Reviewed 23 May 2011 for a stay in January 2011

Mary and Peter do beyond what they need to do and it's those touches that really count e.g fresh flowers in the bedroom. It was perfect for us and we'd definitely stay again. The only tip I can think of is to pay the taxi driver the extra $1.00 to get you up the hill to the apartment. It's worth it! (Small price to pay for the great view)
