Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Villa 10 is two fully furnished apartments overlooking Tasman Bay. We stayed in the loft, which sleeps 2 - 4. The decor is stylish, cheerful, and often hand-made by the wonderful, friendly owner, Jenny. It's like someone giving you the top half of their house! We had one large and one tiny bedroom, a very nice kitchen stocked with eggs, cereal, juice, coffee, milk, etc., and best of all, magnicifent views from every room. There's a great little balcony where we spent much of our time. Several restaurants are within a 5 minute (hilly) walk, and the town center is about 5 minute drive away. The cost was reasonable and definitely the best value we found in New Zealand. Their email is ----------.

The following review has been submitted:
Stayed at Villa 10 for 3 nights in February. A large, beautifully furnished apartment with balcony overlooking bay - amazing views and sunsets. Very well equipped and enough
breakfast supplies for a few days. A very private apartment which was very relaxing. Great restaurants nearby and Nelson approx 25 mins away walking. A great base for exploring the Nelson region and further afield. A perfect stay.

Lovely apartment overlooking the sea on a hill above the attractive town of Nelson. The owners are very friendly and even stock the fridge for you, the decor is just beautiful - as the other review says, exactly like staying in half of someone's impeccably furnished 100 year old house

Good value too, and has all facilities - washer, dryer, cooking facilities etc. I'd far rather stay here than any hotel

We booked the West Wing for the last 3 nights of our trip. Normally photos on websites look really fantastic but when you see the real thing you are often disappointed. Not so in this case....the property is even more stunning!
Graham and Jenny are such wonderful hosts. Graham gave us a tour, explained everything we would need to know and offered advice for things to do while we were there. He actually reminded me a lot of our old neighbor. Such a lovely man.
There is free parking on the street, so not far to take your luggage and plenty of places to eat within walking distance.
The West Wing is a large apartment with two bedrooms, a big lounge room, verandah, kitchen, laundry and bathroom. You can also explore the garden which you must do because it is beautiful.
We spent most afternoons out on the verandah having a drink and playing board games. This place just makes you unwind and we felt at home from the moment we arrived.
The bed in the main bedroom is probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in (including my own!).
There were so many little touches that I need to mention.....the books, magazines and board games, the fresh herbs from the garden on the kitchen window, the lavender from the garden in the bedroom and in the bedroom chest of drawers, the wonderful assortment of glasses and crockery, the extra blankets in the linen cupboard, the basket of slippers and so much more.
It is also a very peaceful place to stay. I absolutely adore this place and it has forever captured my heart.

My BF & I rented The Loft for a week. Has the most amazing views. Like a home away from home. Hosts Jenny and Graham were friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Great location, amazing apartment. The best.

We stayed at Villa 10 for three very happy weeks. The apartment was well equipped, and had its own distinctive and very attractive style. The owners were great, and the view was what you hope for in Nelson.

My husband and 3 kids ( 11, 9 & 8 years old) enjoyed the last two nights of 2015 at Villa 10. We were very luck with the weather so our NYE on Villa10's balcony was just the perfect setting with amazing views.

Graham and Jenny were perfect hosts and it was so nice to hear their story on how Villa 10 came about for their wee business.

Location of Villa 10 was just brilliant as not far from the city centre or the beach. Just wished we could have stayed longer.

We wanted a very special winter holiday to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. Being from Australia we wanted somewhere in New Zealand (my homeland) which wasn't too cold. We stayed in Nelson in February 2013 and loved it so it was our chosen destination. We searched TripAdvisor for the perfect place to stay. When we saw the photo of the view from The Loft at Villa 10 we knew that was THE place. It didn't disappoint in any way. The views were better than the online photos. The weather was perfect winter weather for us. There were several falls of snow on the ranges across the harbour which looked spectacular at sunrise and sunset. The apartment was cosy warm with the natural solar heating during the day and the electric oil heaters at night. Jenny and Graham were perfect caring hosts - never intruding but making sure we had everything we needed.
We will definitely return for another perfect holiday in the romantic 4 poster bed. Our 10 day stay could have lasted forever and we would never have tired of those spectacular views. The Loft is an easy flat walk to restaurants and the CBD. A must stay for the discerning traveller.
Thank you Jenny and Graham your attention to detail and care of your guests is very much appreciated.

Such a lovely homely villa, spacious and very well appointed, clean and comfortable and oodling character The verandah with its views of the sea and mountains is a real bonus! Good location near the town centre. The steep slope to the front door might be a problem for someone with walking difficulties.
