Such a warm welcome and our hosts were helpful and knowledgeable about Nelson activities. Spacious rooms and SO clean. Private and quiet too. Short walk to the beach and to restaurants and lovely view from the large balcony. We will be back!

We were very pleased to find a room at Beachside Villas Motel after another Nelson establishment lost our booking. The personal welcome by the owner was a huge blessing to us. The room was very clean, very comfortable and had thoughtful touches. The owner also gave us great advice for local restaurants and activities. I would happily stay again!

We stayed 3 nights at the motel. The room was large, clean and comfortable. Very good location for easy walk to the beach and to drive downtown and to the various tourist sites. Andrea was very helpful in suggesting where to visit and what to do. Our room faced west so we had nice evening sunshine. Highly recommended.

We spent a few nights in this beautiful place. The room was very modern, tastefully decorated and extremely clean. It is located close to a beautiful beach and the garden and pool area of the motel were also great for relaxing and soaking up the famous nelson sunshine.

We stayed in the poolside apartment for five nights which was beautifully furnished, spacious and very clean. Excellent location and within walking distance of the beautiful beach. The motel has a lovely garden which we were allowed to use and the owners were friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel highly.

Andrea and Gerhart were the most accommodating hosts we've ever had. They went as far as driving us to the grocery store and downtown because we didn't have a car. The place is immaculate and tastefully done. The neighborhood is nice and quiet compared to downtown Nelson. There's a cute pool to relax by and the ocean is only two...

Loved this motel. Everything you need in the room. The bathroom is a little cramped, but with movement of some furniture perfectly adequate. The owner baked her own date loaf and gave it to us on check in! Very delicious, nice touch. We were very comfortable here, although we did only stay one night, we would definitely return.

I visited this beautiful motel last night and really enjoyed my stay. The host was very pleasant and gave me the option of upgrading to a bigger suite. We were perfectly happy with the room we had and it was perfect for three people. It was well equipped with coffee, hot chocolate etc and the pool/garden area was well set...

“We had room 3, which was a good value for the price -- not large but enough space for two parents and two grown children who don't mind sleeping in the same space. Bathroom is reached through the bedroom.”
