Our family of 3 stayed for 2 nights after arriving off the ferry from North Island.
We stayed in great places throughout our holiday, but this had to be the best.
Sunshine cottage just felt like a little home: well equipped, cosy and comfy, outstanding views. The best thing for me was to be able to walk out of the cottage and go for a lovely walk without even getting in the car.
Great hosts.

This is the 5th year in a row that we have rented Grandma's Cottage on Harris Hill. (This time it was for 2 1/2 months). Obviously we love it here. We keep coming back because the setting is beautiful and exquisitely peaceful, it is very conveniently located for trips in to Nelson, Sue, Mike, Rachel and Wayne are delightful, cheerful and extremely helpful hosts and the cottage is very comfortable and well appointed. .... we are looking forward to year 6.

Room Tip: We keep renting Grandma's cottage ... but all of the others are equally lovely

Our cottage had a really beautiful view and was well-equipped apart from the very worn out dish cleaner which we quickly replaced. We stayed a week and really enjoyed the feeling of being away from the hussle and bustle of the centre of Nelson. It was also pretty special have the dogs and chickens visit us each day. We'd definitely go back ... next time I would however double check the cost as there was a little confusion about that.

This is a great place to stay if you want to be within a 10 minute drive of central Nelson but also want to be somewhere quiet with panoramic views.

We were late arriving due to the recent earthquake causing a delay in the ferry arrival to Picton. We ended up arriving at 10 PM. Sue was very considerate and welcoming. She drove down from the hill to meet us at the turnoff from the highway (SH 6). Upon finding out that we haven't eaten, she brought us bread, biscuits, butter, honey, jam and tomatoes.
The next morning, we woke up to see the most beautiful view we can imagine. You can see the ocean, bay, the town below, and the rolling hills with all kinds of farm animals.
Sue helped us fed the friendly and cute sheep, pig (one), horses, cattle and even chicken.
The one bedroom cottage we stayed at is called "Suntop". It has amazing view. Bed was very comfortable. It is in excellent shape, and the bathroom has a washing machine.
Walking around the property around dusk is a wonderful experience. The sunset is wonderful.
Later on we met Rachel, who is also super nice. We would highly recommend this place!

Stayed here for two memorable weeks when we emigrated toi nz five years ago. Having never set foot in the country we arrived with our four children, aged 8 - 14 tired and a little uncertain. As soon as we arrived at harris hill we knew we had made the right decision. Such a friendly kiwi welcome and the views....absolutely amazing. Sue was so helpful from arranging a food pack to providing information on the area, schools etc. It was a really special time, that we all still speak of fondly today. Will never foget harris hill!
