We booked for the one-bedroom apartment but were upgraded to the two-bedroom at no extra cost. The quality is excellent, and the views are addictive.You need to be sure-footed if you want to walk the short distance to and from the water-side restaurants because of the steep access, but can drive right up to the apartment. The manager, James, was very helpful by email before hand, and by text about getting the key on the day. We stayed in mid June but booked the first time for January. We had to cancel the January booking at short notice because of a bereavement. They waived the deposit, despite losing the booking at the peak summer time. We will definitely go back there at any time of the year. There is no Sky TV if you cannot live without that. If you want daily servicing of the unit you need to arrange that. You don't need it because there are plenty of extra towels etc.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Breathtaking harbour, island, bay & mountain views ensure either of the 2 apartments are ideal places from which to enjoy the magical view: from the maritime traffic in the harbour to the grand vista of Tasman Bay & the western mountain ranges. A 1 bedroom apartment is on the lower level. It has beautiful wood floors & a large living area with big sliding windows & doors. There's a compact kitchen, tiled bathroom & laundry appliances. The 2 bedroom is above. It also has a large open living area & big windows & sliding doors. There's a full kitchen & separate laundry. The higher elevation give it earlier sun & a slightly more expansive view.The property is on the hillside (away from the busy waterfront highway). Nelson's renown waterfront dining strip is very nearby, at the bottom of the hill (2 mins walk down). The township is a 4 min drive. Abel Tasman National Park is easily doable as a day trip. There is a steep driveway with good parking & turning room at the top. There are approximately 16 steps up to Apartment 1 & another 16 to Apartment 2. These are normal spaced steps with good handrails. The property is managed by James and Richard of Te Puna Wai Lodge, Nelson. We manage a range of vacation properties in the area. ... more less
