The climb up the road to Big Sky may be a bit daunting for those not used to New Zealand's roads but it's worth it for the view. Avner is an excellent host, welcoming and attentive. He recommended a great Thai restaurant for us on the Nelson harbour front for our first night.The room was nicely furnished in a minimalist...

When I spoke with the owner and mentioned that I plan to come for one day, he recommended me to stay at least 2 days and I am so happy we did as he advised. This place is up on the mountain and has the best view of Nelson, the ocean and the entire bay. Basically I recommend everyone to...

Avner was a fabulous host, with great input on local hikes, local restaurants, Marlborough wineries, and Abel Tasmin...He even went above and beyond with some help arranging transport for the great hike nearby.

This place is gorgeous! I have never stayed somewhere with such outstanding views. It is located on a hill overlooking the vast expanse of Tasman Bay- amazing sunsets! The place is contemporary and well thought out, the hosts gracious and thoughtful. Highly reccomended!

Here's what I wrote for Airbnb -  Highly recommended. The accommodations are just right (private, modern, very comfortable), the view couldn't be better and the host is friendly, knowledgeable and enormously helpful. We were very well taken care of. It's a must-stay if you're planning to spend the night in or near Nelson!

Thank Mcarmonany
