About this listing

Modern home, slightly raised on western hillside, catching the warming afternoon sun. Overlooking rooftops to view the mountain ranges and sea.
5 mins from airport, 10 mins to centre of Nelson, by car. On Abel Tasman and city bus routes. On cycle way. Good restaurants within 1km. Cafe's, bars and beach within walking distance, 2km. Closest supermarket 2.5km

The space

This is a newly renovated modern home that I am happy to share with my guests.
Easy to find and easy to get around the Nelson region from here.
The cycle way is at my door step.
Tahunanui beach is close enough to walk to. Swim, paddle board, kite surf or just walk in the lovely sand. Restaurants, cafe's and bars are also located around the beach.
Walk, cycle or drive around Rocks Road into Nelson city soaking up the water views, for more great cafe's, restaurants, shopping, arts or history.
Heading in the opposite direction, you are on State highway 6,so in no time you are out of town heading for your destination, maybe Abel Tasman National Park, or maybe the various wineries along the way.

Guest access

The garden and patio are yours to relax in.
Make yourself at home in the lounge and dinning room.
The kitchen is available for your use.
Help yourself to tea coffee and fresh fruit

Interaction with guests

Although I work varied shifts I am happy to pick up from the airport or bus station if I am available.

Because of my work I may not be at home to greet you, in which case I will give you details of where to find the key. Let yourselves in and make yourselves at home.
My driveway is very steep, but short. You are welcome to park your car at the top, but may prefer to park on the street.

No smoking or pets
I am security conscious, so all windows to be closed and doors locked if you are to leave while I am not there
Check out time is 10 am, so I can have access to your room to prepare for next guests before I go to work. If your flight is later in the day, I don't mind you staying at the house longer.

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - My driveway is steep and there are wide stairs leading up to house entry. Once up the stairs, house is all one level
Potential for noise - I am on the main road so you may hear traffic noise. My windows are double glazed which reduces the noise considerably
Pet(s) live on property - I have 2 adoring cats that love attention. If you are not a cat fan, 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 was great! We arrived late, and had a little bit of trouble finding the place, but she came outside and directed us! Her house is charming as is her son and her cats! Very steep driveway, but lovely place and lovely people. Would highly recommend.

Shirley User ProfileShirley is a superhost.

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.
