A modern home, slightly raised on the western side of the hill, catching the warming afternoon sun, overlooking rooftops with views of the mountain range and sea.
5 mins from airport, 10 mins to central Nelson, on bus route. On Cycle way.

The space

I have 2 private rooms available, one with the Queen bed, the other a single. There is also another single bed in the lounge, that maybe used if your group requires it. As I frequently travel alone I wanted to offer a better deal for the single traveller. Two singles can book and have a room each. I have a separate listing for the double room, If you only require a double please book on that listing.
There is only one bathroom in the house, which includes the toilet, large shower and separate bath, which you are welcome to use and soak your worries away in.

Guest access

Make yourself feel at home.
The garden and court yard are yours to relax in.
Feel at home in the lounge and dinning room.
The kitchen is available for your use. Help yourself to tea, coffee and milk and to the fresh fruit on the table.

Interaction with guests

Happy to meet you and chat. My wish is that you feel comfortable throughout my home.
I work full time, varied shifts throughout the week, including weekends.
If I am available, I am happy to pick up or drop off from airport or bus station.

Other things to note

My driveway is quite steep, but short. There is room for turning around at the top and parking.

I am security conscious, so all windows are to be closed and doors locked if you are to leave while I am not home.

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - My driveway is steep, followed by wide stairs up to house entry. Once up stairs, house is all on one level.
Potential for noise - I am on the main road so you may hear some traffic noise in the night, but my windows are double glazed which reduces the noise consideraby
Pet(s) live on property - I have 2 adoring cats that just love your attention. If you are not a fan of cats, they know to leave you alone.
Some spaces are shared - This is my home that I am happy to share with you throughout. Your rooms are your own private space.

Shirley is a wonderful Host and her lovely place is a home away from home close to all the places were we needed to be and the great sights in the Tasman bay we wanted to see. We hope to return one day. Theo Valé

Shirley is an amazing host with a lovely tidy home and comfortable clean beds. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the location suited our needs; it was close to the airport and en route to Abel Tasman, close to a few good eateries and a convenience store. The bus stop is close by too should you wish to venture into the city. Our transfers to Abel Tasman picked us up from the local bus stop which is only 200m up the road. Shirley's two cats are friendly and affectionate, high paws all round!

Shirley is a great host! Right from the start I had accurate directions how to find her place. Everything was as stated on the listing - great kitchen and bathroom. The single room I stayed in had a comfortable enough bed, desk, and empty drawers for my use. I felt at home and welcomed during my stay at Shirley's place, and would stay there again.

To get the best experience out of travelling is to be with the locals. Airbnb is that economic connection. That is why I am keen to take part.
I have travelled New Zealand and love our country. I have spent time in the UK, Europe, USA and Canada, also visited parts of Asia on holiday.
My work is full time with varied shifts throughout the week, including weekends.
I am a keen Golfer, very familiar with our 6 local courses and played various courses around the country.
At present, 2 cats keep me company.
I look forward to meeting my guests and sharing with them what we have on offer in our local paradise.
