About our home

Our house was one of the original farmhouses in our neighbourhood and was completely renovated about 8 years ago, so it has all the mod-cons, but with heaps of old school charm. Recently, our house was featured in New Zealand Life and Leisure Magazine.

Nelson is an adorable town by the sea, known for it's sunshine, art, great food, wine and craft beer. We live a short, 10 minute drive from town. The Abel Tasman National Park is very close and Rainbow Ski Field is an hour and 20 minutes drive away.

It's perfect for entertaining, both the indoor and outdoor table seat 10 people and we have two living areas. We're happy to accomodate up to 9 people. There are beds for 6, we have two single floor mattresses and a super comfy, extra wide couch in the second lounge.

All the bedrooms are really spacious, with feather duvets and pillows and high-quality 100% cotton sheets. We have tons of books and games for the kids as well as a DVD player, netflix, broadband and a projecter and 2m x 1m movie screen for those rainy days.

My favourite part of our homes are the bathrooms! Really luxurious showers and a super deep clawfoot tub downstairs.

Outside, we have a huge deck with outdoor fireplace and webber bbq. There's also a trampoline, a bridge over our own creek that leads to a forest with a tree hut and rope swings. In the front yard, we have a climbing frame.

We are a short stroll to a beautiful boulder beach (not sandy) which makes for super clear water, great for snorkeling as it's the start of a marine reserve.

A weekly cleaner is included and we have a 7 seater car available to use.

Where is it?


Just a short drive from Nelson to a super special beachside neighbourhood. Down at the rocky beach we've spotted dolphins, orca and seals and plenty of surfers when the conditions are right. There's a playground and a little cafe next to the dairy farm where you can buy fresh milk. Super green and lush with one of the best day walks in the top of the South Island just minutes from our front door.
