Here is my quaint, modest 1898 cottage walking distance to the town with a spacious bedroom and tasteful decor throughout. It would suit a mature single traveler wanting conversation or quiet, comfort and great breakfast. I do welcome couples though as well.
Non-smokers only please.
I have been known to tour guide guests in lieu of them hiring a car, either taking them to vinyards or drive to Mapua or Motueka for a small cost.

We found Linda to be an easy & friendly person to be with. She provided all we needed, the facilities were spotless & tasteful, & our time there was a good introduction to Airbnb.

Thimble Cottage is a wonderful place to stay. It’s full of character and beautifully cared for, situated in a quiet area within walking distance of the city centre. Linda is a lovely, welcoming host who provided a great healthy breakfast and evening meal . Highly recommend!

A lovely original Nelson cottage . Very handy to Town ( 10 min walk) . Roses around the verandah, and lovely inside too. Great breakfast. Everything was perfect for me. I’d recommend Thimble Cottage every time.
