“The best!!!”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

Thank you to Sue, Mike and family for an experience we shall never ever forget. This farm is totally built from love...a family of love. You will be greeted by max the pony or maybe piggy the pig or even maybe tom the dog first but you will be greeted with a warm loving atmosphere. Our stay was superb and the views were out of this world. Thank you for a wonderful stay and opening your door to us. :)

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 access is by a steep, narrow and winding road but of course you need to drive up it to get the great view. All the property owners we met were very friendly and interested in having a chat. We had free wi fi although it was a little unreliable on occasions. Being a little out of town and having to supply our own meals meant that we had to drive into town to buy supplies which was a bit time consuming.

Room Tip: Suntop cottage was good for couples with a great view over the bay.

After 3 nights in City View cottage we wished we had booked for twice as long. After a drive filled with magnificent views, we arrived at Harris Hill to be greeted by Sue and the dogs. The view was even more spectacular than we had seen in the photos. The family is friendly and helpful. It is wonderful to hear the cows in the morning and see them all trotting up the hillside. Nelson and its surrounds are breath-taking and more time is needed than we had planned. Would definitely like to return to Harris Hill.

Thanks again to Rachel and Sue for another wonderful stay with you. This time we stayed in the City Lights Cottage over looking Nelson and the Port very beautiful views and setting. It is so lovely to have the peace and quiet of the country side along with the bird song. And to have total privacy. The cottages are all beautifully clean and modern with all the comforts of home.

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. There is so much exploring to do and coming with three you boys we really appreciated the space to run around. It is an excellent location for view and an easy 5 min access to town. I woulnd't stay anywhere else.

Being from the USA we tried to stay at places that represented New Zealand, and this was a home run!! We LOVED this place!! Our cottage was so cozy (fresh flowers were on the table when we arrived), and the view was amazing! The Harris Family were all so friendly, kind, and helpful! We loved Daisy the pig, and we got to meet Jack...one of their horses that was in the last 2 "Lord of the Rings" movies!! We didn't want to leave!!

We spent 2 months in "Grandma's" cottage at Harris Hill and loved the experience. The whole family (Sue, Mike, Rachel, Wayne and others) are all very friendly and helpful. The cottage was well appointed and immaculate. The views from the hill are spectacular and the bird song delightful. We really enjoyed being able to walk out the door and go for a wonderful walk around the farm property. They have a lot of repeat business from year to year and we can see why ... we have already re-booked for next year.
