Ah House was a wonderful and relaxing retreat, which we would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Nelson. Mark, John, Mum and Bella were incredible hosts! Mark continually went out of his way to ensure that we had a perfect stay. He reminded us each day that we were on our holiday and should have what we needed when we needed it. From a gourmet cooked breakfast with delicious omlettes and homemade jam to adventure bookings and recommendations, nothing was too much trouble.
We stayed in the Garden Apartment that is a huge studio with ensuite bathroom and functional kitchen. The accommodation was quite large, clean and wonderful with run of the entire backyard, which also provided a ton of extra space. We were at Ah House on Christmas Eve and Christmas. They filled us in on what was happening in town on Christmas Eve to make sure were able to get a true Nelson Christmas experience full of caroling on the Cathedral steps with the whole town which was wonderful to be a part of. On Christmas Day, Mark was more than happy to serve us breakfast (outside on the patio) and ensure we were prepared for the day before heading upstairs to celebrate with the family. Since most things were closed for Christmas, we chose to cook our own dinner in the apartment. The kitchen was perfect for what we needed and was furnished with pots, pans, toaster, plates and glassware etc. The location is a quick 5 minute walk to town, 10 minute drive to the beach and a 45-60 minute drive to Abel Tasman National Park. Ah House should set the accommodation standard as we had a perfect stay there! Thank you for the wonderful hospitality!
