Excellent communication. Amazing house. We had 10 people and did not feel at all cramped. Location was quite far from Nelson but we planned in advance and were able to visit several wineries within a fairly short distance of the house, so we did not feel isolated in the end. We had an awesome night and made good use of the pool, spa, and pizza oven. Thanks Clare!

Clare the host, was wonderful in the communication and provided a lot of guidance in advance. Check-in was smoothless and she explained all important aspects. Nice twist: all cupboards are labelled so that you quickly find what you need (very important in the heat of cooking). She even left some goodies in the kitchen for those who didn´t make it to the supermarket. Butter and eggs, milk and jam, serials, even wine etc. The mansion itself is very quietly situated and provides ample room also for larger groups, very nice kitchen area and outdoor bbq area. We didn´t try the pool but it is big enough for doing laps. The house booklet is very informative on the house itself, but also giving a lot of recommendations for what to do and see and where to shop and eat in the region. Very nice experience!

Great property and pool for the summer sun - Clare and Pete were great hosts and we lacked for nothing. Restaurants and bars in Mapua only 5 minutes away but it's a beautiful rural location.

Gorgeous, gorgeous home! We had a group of 8 people and had plenty of room to spread out. We were very comfortable and loved using the large kitchen (fully stocked with dishes, pans, etc and even some food/coffee/spices). The pool and spa area is stunning and we loved the outdoor fireplace and pizza oven! This home was the highlight of our stay in Nelson. Clare was fantastic, super responsive and very helpful. Would absolutely stay again!
