Stayed here for 2 nights. 1 night in the main deck and 1 night in the upper deck.
Service: Due to mistakes in the booking, we had to change rooms in our 2 days stay. However, the hosts offered to help us shift our stuffs down while we are out sightseeing. We didn't manage to see them when we came on the first day but the next morning they were at our doorstep to find out how everything's going. Ralph was really helpful and gave us ideas on what to do in Nelson/ Abel Tasman region.
Location: it is a few minutes drive away from the city centre. And it is also near some really nice restaurants and cafe. Both main deck and upper deck has really good views. What we found difficult was driving up the slope. The country we come from hardly had any steep slope so driving up was a bit of challenge but we managed to do it by ourselves anyway!
Rooms were clean. There is washing machine and dryer. Washing powder provided too. Each bed has electric blanket - good for cold night. Living room has a huge window giving us fantastic view. The kitchen is well equipped and clean.
Upper deck or main deck? Both are equally good! We could not decide which one we loved more.
The main deck has a balcony with BBQ pit. The upper deck has a outdoor grass area. Both have table and benches so that you can enjoy eating or chilling outside.
I will definitely return the next time!
