We stayed 5 nights in the Suntop cottage which has sweeping views over the bay. The cottage was well appointed and very comfortable with full cooking and washing facilities. The property is a sheep and cattle farm covering a huge acreage on top of a hill overlooking Nelson and the bay. It is a few kms out of Nelson and...

We just spent a week with the Harris' at Harris Hill. It was awesome. The family is so friendly. We came as strangers but left as friends.
