My husband and I enjoy the stay. Wonderful view during sunset. Comfortable and spacious room also the facility is clean.
Previously all our stays in Nelson had been in Motels, we thought this year we would try a holiday rental. On reflection this turned out to be the best idea we have ever had for our accommodation needs in Nelson. At the risk of repeating what has been said in previous reviews, Arrow Rock is nothing short of spectacular. Wow! That is your first reaction as you walk through the door at this apartment. I cannot describe how magnificent the view is. We absolutely loved sitting on the deck watching the coming and goings of the boats as well as the evening sunsets. The rest of the apartment does not disappoint either. There is a lovely comfortable sofa, apple TV in the lounge which was great for a night in with a good movie. The bedroom was light and bright with a very comfortable King bed, a nice big bathroom with a great shower. Mary is a treasure, she made certain that we had all the comforts of home with lots of special touches including fruit, milk, bread and other breakfast provisions. We had done a lot of the touristy things on previous visits to Nelson so it was great to just kick back on the deck and take in the magnificent views. We felt that it was excellent value, especially when compared to motels we have previously stayed at in Nelson. You won’t be disappointed!
Thank you Mary for a wonderful stay, we loved every minute and will certainly be coming back next year.
We really enjoyed our stay. Fabulous views, great big balcony. Everything we needed including laundry and Netflix. Well situated, quiet & clean.
The accommodation was truly brilliant - fantastic location and view, lovely kitted out apartment, lots of special little personal touches and extras not expected. Mary was an excellent host - this is only the third review we have ever completed because the place really deserves to be rated so highly.
Mary responded quickly to any emails, sent us detailed directions and was the perfect host. She greeted us warmly on arrival and showed us the apartment (it's like a penthouse), which has the wow factor the minute you walk in the door! It is clean, spacious, beautifully furnished, has a well equipped kitchen (plus a washing machine) and the most fantastic views plus amazing balcony to sit and enjoy the sunshine and watch the world go by. There are restaurants nearby so no need to drive which is brilliant and then back to watch the sunset from the balcony - perfect!
With non stop overnight stays this has been our favourite accommodation so far and has totally spoilt us for the rest of the trip! Photographs don't do it justice but be assured you won't be disappointed. However don't make the same mistake as us ... stay for more than one night! It really is fantastic!
We had just the most wonderful stay at Arrow Rock! The view and position just above the sea was sublime so relaxing and the apartment is so well appointed you couldnt want for more. Mary was lovely and the booking and finding the apartment was very straight forward and easy. One of the best places we have ever stayed and we will definitely be back. We felt bad because we left without writing in the guest book... but we will be back!
We had a 13 day honeymoon in New Zealand and by far Mary's place was our favorite that we stayed in on the entire trip. Mary is an absolute professional -- sent detailed maps and instructions ahead of time (with photos for easy guidance), gave us a great welcome tour, had detailed information about everything in the apartment, and provided free breakfast. The apartment itself feels very recently renovated -- beautiful large deck, lots of wall to ceiling windows and natural light, new bathroom, etc. It feels like a luxury hotel. Mary also has a lot of pride about the country and Nelson in particular and provides some history of the city, and also has a fun collection of vintage New Zealand travel books (fun to see how some areas have changed in the last 30-40 years). The views are spectacular and it's fun to watch the large ships go by. Highly recommend and would love to stay again!
