Property's Favourite Review
Faultless in every aspect. The rooms, the decor, the service, the breakfast, the grounds, the bird song, the location - just 5 minutes walk to the Nelson cafes and restaurants near the Cathedral. Amazing hosts, the property is eclectic, tasteful and bursting with character. If you are looking for Nelson accommodation, stop looking and book this. You simply won't regret it.

Gorgeous spacious homely apartment accommodation. Hosts were 10/10 - service was beyond our expectations. Everything was perfect to be honest. Breakfast was delicious. Apartment was of a very high standard. Will be returning to this place over anything else we have stayed in Nelson.

For the perfect holiday I would highly suggest staying at Ah house. Mark, John and Bella the dog made us feel at home straight away. Great room in the garden private and very comfortable. Inclusive breakfast was a great start to the day. Quiet spot with easy walk into town and both Mark and John were happy to suggest the very best of what the region had to offer. A must stay spot highly recommended.
