That describes the view after climbing the stairs up to the aparment. The apartment was generous, well equiped, clean and comfortable. There are great eating places nearby, and the CBD is a short drive away. Recommended.

We had 4 nights in Nelson, and it was amazing. The location of this property meant you were close to city centre but with an incredible outlook. Great places to eat (and drink) nearby, and straight out the door for an invigorating waterfront walk. There was ample space for 2 people in the 1 bedroom apartment with all of the amenities you could possibly need. The fresh daffodils were a lovely touch plus the great coffee. there was a convenient carpark space, I recommend hiring a car to see as much of the beautiful Nelson area as possible. There are bike tracks everywhere so it would have been great to have had bikes available to use or hire from the apartment for an extra charge (we would have been happy to pay for the convenience)

We stayed here for two nights. Our room had beautiful views over Picton Harbour. The room was modern and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. The apartments are within very easy walking distance of the harbour, the town and local restaurants.

Everything was perfect. The view was outstanding and always something happening in the harbour to watch. Very quiet. All facilities of a high standard. James was great to deal with. Highly recommended.

If you know Nelson, then there's no need for me to say much - but suffice to say the best possible harbour view saturates the main living spaces of this upper floor 2-bed apartment, and for that alone it's worth the price of admission. The apartment itself however lacks some of the more considered touches that a personal home would have. The kitchen isn't for cooking big meals, and some of the furnishings have seen better days. But for a very clean and comfortable place to say, with unsurpassed views and a perfect location, you couldn't find much better in Nelson.
Thank LolaPagola
Breathtaking harbour, island, bay & mountain views ensure either of the 2 apartments are ideal places from which to enjoy the magical view: from the maritime traffic in the harbour to the grand vista of More Tasman Bay & the western mountain ranges. A 1 bedroom apartment is on the lower level. It has beautiful wood floors & a large living area with big sliding windows & doors. There's a compact kitchen, tiled bathroom & laundry appliances. The 2 bedroom is above. It also has a large open living area & big windows & sliding doors. There's a full kitchen & separate laundry. The higher elevation give it earlier sun & a slightly more expansive view.The property is on the hillside (away from the busy waterfront highway). Nelson's renown waterfront dining strip is very nearby, at the bottom of the hill (2 mins walk down). The township is a 4 min drive. Abel Tasman National Park is easily doable as a day trip. There is a steep driveway with good parking & turning room at the top. There are approximately 16 steps up to Apartment 1 & another 16 to Apartment 2. These are normal spaced steps with good handrails. The property is managed by James and Richard of Te Puna Wai Lodge, Nelson. We manage a range of vacation properties in the area. Less
