Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This newly renovated accommodation features a spacious bedroom with queen sized bed, shower room and covered outside area with carpet, café table and chairs. The whole property is a no smoking area. Tahunanui’s stunning beach is a 15 minute stroll with its recreational facilities, cafes, shops, bars, restaurants, takeaways, dairies and convenience store. Historic Nelson city centre is a relaxed 7 or 8 minutes by car with plentiful opportunities for coffee, great food and wine and craft beers.

The space
The accommodation is at the rear underneath the main house and has its own lockable entrance which faces west with views over the tidal Waimea Inlet and Western Ranges. To the north the view extends over Tahunanui beach to Tasman Bay and Abel Tasman National Park. There is ample parking on the road and the room is accessed down a sloping, hard surface driveway. Being as the accommodation is directly under the main house you can expect some transfer of noise but there’s usually only the two of us and we’re not very raucous so hope you’re not either!

Bedroom: Queen sized bed, two comfortable arm chairs and bedside tables with lights. In the wardrobe there is space for hanging clothes, a chest of drawers, a small fridge, kettle, toaster, cutlery, crockery and glasses. Coffee bags, tea bags and sugar are provided. Breakfasts are not provided. The room is well insulated and double glazed. When heating is needed there is a standalone electric radiator and an electric blanket is provided during the colder months.

Bathroom: New shower, wash basin, toilet, fan heater and heated towel rail. Soft bath and hand towels, shampoo, conditioner, shower wash, soap and toilet paper supplied. Beach towels for river and beach swimming are also supplied. We use as many eco-friendly cleaning, shampoo, and soap products as possible.

Outside ‘room’: Enclosed on three sides and open to the front, facing west. Carpeted with new café table and chairs at which you can enjoy your morning coffee/tea while looking at the Moutere Hills, the Western Ranges and the waters of the Waimea Inlet illuminated by the rising sun. Enjoy the sunsets with a glass of wine while listening to the evening birdsong.

Garden: The garden slopes away from the house and is terraced. Feel free to explore its nooks and crannies and sit in a quiet corner. But take it as you find it!

Parking: The road is like a quiet, leafy country lane with little through traffic and plenty of off-street parking for your vehicle.
If you want to leave the car at home there is a regular bus service between Richmond and Nelson. Nelson’s airport is about 5 minutes by car as is Nelson Golf Course. The Nelson cycle link to The Great Taste Trail is just down the hill from the property.

Nelson, New Zealand

The beach at Tahunanui is 5 minutes by car or a 15 minute stroll. There are lovely walks around the hills of Tahunanui including the challenging Tamaki steps, all 360 of them (but they're not compulsory!). Tahunanui drive has shops, bars, restaurants and cafes as well as a GP surgery and pharmacy. Historic Nelson city centre is 7 or 8 minutes by car. We are happy to recommend places to drink, dine and visit.
