We visited as a family with four adults and two small children. Prior to our visit the host, Pailina, was exceedingly helpful to accommodate the little ones and had arranged everything beautifully when we arrived. The breakfast was unique and wonderful and she was so helpful, giving us local information and answering my queries via email dialogue immediately. The gardens are serene and the pond has many birds visiting. We look forward to returning

Thank you for this kind review. I do enjoy having kids around and am glad that the two studios could easily accommodate all of you. Hope all will go well with the moving into the new house and perhaps we'll meet again. It is indeed nice to have people coming back and see the children grow up and still enjoy the books, games etc that are present.
Thanks again! Paulina

Paulina is exactly as a host should be. helpful, profession and inviting. and she knows the importance of privacy. it was very relaxing staying in the room and eating at here table. The garden pond is so beautiful it is worth just gazing apon for hours

Thank you Ida for this surprise review:-)
Much appreciated. With regards to the kitchen facilities I want to mention that guests shouldn't expect anything but for all the basic kitchen tools. Especially in the villa studio where you stayed, space is relatively limited. You can certainly prepare meals, and use our gardens to pick some of your herbs and salads, but it certainly isn't the sort of kitchen you would have at home. Enjoy the remainder of your holidays and a safe journey home to Sweden. Paulina

My girlfriend and I stayed here in mid September 2016. The hostess is super friendly and the house is absolutely lovely on the side of the hill. Good location - easy walk to city and plenty of nice pubs/restaurants. The villa's breakfast was amazing - highly recommend.

Glad you had a good time here. It is indeed a great bonus that we are so close to the CBD and the parks, galleries, eateries. Hope to see you return some day! Aroha, Paulina

The garden studio is sunny and spatious. It was a great place to work and large enough for meetings. The view is pleasant and the layout is very comfortable. The WiFi connection is reliable and fast.

Paulina, the owner, was friendly and helpful with everything I needed. She cares about providing quality accommodation and ensuring that guests have an enjoyable stay. The house is within easy walking distance of the city centre. There is no place in Nelson that I would recommend more highly.

Roger Williams

Room Tip: The garden studio adjacent to the pond in back is ideal, with cooking facilities and space for meetings.

Thank you so much for this review.

Just to give a bit of context to Tripadvisor readers:
You were here for a week long conference held in a hotel nearby and preferred to stay somewhere private and peaceful. Glad that worked out.
Re Wifi: We recently upgraded our Wifi system to the highest possible standards where access is also 'personalised' which makes any up - and download safer for all parties.
Interesting that you note that the garden studio suits itself well for meetings. That's true. We have had business meetings as well as workshops there in the past but generally cater for tourists.
Thanks again, and have a safe journey home to Cambridge.
