Better than great. Outstanding! The house is so comfortable, and Linda is a very gracious host. We were able to easily walk to cafes and restaurants without having to fuss over parking. The residential street is very charming and quiet. We hope to return for a longer stay!

This rental at Linda's cottage exceeded all our expectations: quality of cottage throughout, location and comfort are 5 star standard. We didn't want to leave. This is our first pick for any future visits to Nelson! Thanks again Linda!

Linda made us feel at home straight away with a detailed welcome tour of the house. It was much nicer than the pictures portray and is situated in a great location walking distance from all of the cafes in town. We'll stay again if down Nelson way in the future.

Linda was an amazing host! She provided clear instructions as to how to enter the house as well as a detailed booklet covering all aspects of the house as well as the Nelson area. The house was the perfect location for our family holiday in Nelson! We brought our 19 month old little boy and the area was incredibly family friendly!! The house was ADORABLE, clean, and incredibly comfortable. It was within walking distance to the main town as well as numerous restaurants, parks, and shops. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a place to stay in Nelson. You won't find anything better than the Sojourn Cottage!!
