    Sunny Villa Apartment in the Central City

    My place is a sunny, charming bijou apartment in an 1880's villa just 10 min walk to the historical cathedral with cafés, alfresco dining & famous Nelson Saturday market close by. I'm also near the Maitai river with cycle-paths, walks, swimming & picnics. I have a little private outdoor garden area with table & chairs, BBQ Grill, fresh herbs, grapes & feijoas. My place sleeps 2 in comfort, the bathroom is en suite. If you are 3, there is also a fold-out chair bed and extra bedding. Enjoy!

    What guests are saying:

    “Sally’s AirBNB is located in a historic part of Nelson , very close to some great historic houses, gardens and restaurants all a short 15 minute drive to the airport. The charming late 1800’s architecture has been lovingly updated with a modern bathroom and kitchen while preserving much of the historic beauty of the original native woods and workmanship. All accomplished without sacrificing any of its inherent ambiance. Sparkling clean and stylishly appointed. If you love colonial era historic buildings with all the modern conveniences upon the rolling hills of Nelson, you’re going to love this place.”

    Charming Cottage in Park-Like Private Gardens

    Nestled amidst majestic trees & stunning landscaped gardens, Bonnington Cottage is a treat you don’t want to miss! Read our FEEDBACK and see for yourself just how much guests love it here!! The cottage consists of a sizeable lounge & dining area, plus a kitchenette and bathroom downstairs, two bedrooms upstairs, each boasting multi-panel dormer windows giving a romantic feeling of yesteryear to the rooms.

    What guests are saying:

    “Amanda and Dale’s home makes you feel like you’re Cameron Diaz in the movie the Holiday. However unlike poor Cameron who had to lug her suitcases down a country lane, this cottage is just much easier to get to, being just 7 minutes drive from the airport. It is a historic home and has been beautifully restored to its former glory. Thoughtful touches like the house manual, board games, fireplace heater and Apple TV (preloaded with lots of great movies) made for a very comfortable stay. Dale and Amanda are nearby if you need them but respect your privacy if you don’t. Would recommend a car to travel in and out of Nelson, as well as driving to Abel Tasman park and beyond.”

    What guests are saying:

    “We loved Mary’s place. The view is stunning and the grounds are really charming too. The apartment is very spacious and it was great to have the washer and dryer. Having some breakfast items, a Nespresso machine and locally handmade soap were very thoughtful touches. My only complaint was that the people in the above flat walked rather heavily/noisily. But we had such a great time they didn’t keep us up.”
