During our visit in the Abel Tasmen/ Nelson area, I stayed at this apartment with my partner and a few extended family members. It was located on a hillside residential area in between Nelson city and Tahunanui. It was not a close walk (relatively speaking) to either but some of us did walk. There were a handful or excellent restaurants within walking distance though, including the famous Boat Shed Cafe. Excellent food.
We were booked in apartment #3, the largest and on the top floor. There were three cozy bedrooms (two queen beds and one with 2 twins), two ensuite bathrooms and one larger separate bathroom, a comfortably appointed living/dining room, a laundry room, a well stocked kitchen and cable television.
Upon arrival, there were fresh cut flowers on the dining table. What a nice touch.
We were also pleasantly surprised by the fruits and basic provisions that were stocked in the kitchen. Did I mention the view? The large balcony off the living area provided an expansive view of the Tasman bay. There was even a binocular for us to take in the boats that came in. Wi-fi Internet conveniently available at a small price.
The apartment was very tidy, we did not utilize the cleaning service during our stay. All in all we had a fantastic stay. Out of all the accommodations on our month-long trip, this apartment felt most at home.
