Nelson with young kids - help with accom and things to do

Hi,

Just wonder if someone can please suggest some accommodation for us in Nelson in Jan. We plan to stay 4 nights. Was thinking of staying at Tahuna Beach holiday park but they only have basic cabins left. We prefer our own bathroom and kitchen. Would really like a place with a swimming pool suitable for kids too. Happy to consider motels/holiday parks with motel/cabin accommodation in the medium budget.

We plan to fly into Dunedin and drive to Queenstown/Christchurch and then Nelson. Suggestions of some kids friendly things to do around Nelson area would be welcomed too!

Thanks!

staying around the tahuna area is definitely recommended as the beach, natureland, funparks are all popular. Plenty of motels in Tahuna with swimming pools. Trips to Rabbit island beach, kaiteriteri are all recommended.

the matai river is a great place to swim as well.
