We had two wonderful nights at The Charthouse- Main Deck and wished we were staying longer. The owners have thought of everything you could need. The apartment has an absolutely stunning view that can be gazed at for many hours. Breakfast in the sun, on the deck, was a wonderful way to start the day. The amenities are very comfortable...

We stayed in the Charthouse Main Deck, seen in many of the photos loaded by other travellers. I could have just stayed looking at the view all day. Even on a rainy August day, we sat in the warm living room and watched the sky change colours and the activity in the bay. Nelson is a very chilled town with...

We stayed in The Look Out at the Wheelhouse Inn and it was everything we hoped for. The views are stunning, morning, noon and night. The property is spotless.

I absolutely recommend The Wheelhouse, in particular the "Crows Nest". We only stayed for 1 night, but could have easily based my family of 4 there more than comfortably for a week or so. The facilities are clean, well maintained & the attention to detail is second to none. The views from the "Crows Nest" are breathtaking.

This place is absolutely amazing. The views are incredible from the panoramic windows in the living room, from the deck and the large windows in both bedrooms! Fully self contained, you can cook yourself dinner or take the very short drive into town. Or if you prefer the walk or bike it's only around 4k to hardy street. The accommodation...

My daughter and I with my granddaughter stayed in the 'Lookout' for 6 days and thoroughly enjoyed it, we had everything we could need and the views were to die for. Waking up and looking out at amazing views with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Nice and quiet too. The hosts and crew were very friendly and generous. The best view...

We stayed in the Main Deck house as this was all that was available. It had a absolutely gorgeous view and was really private. The place was clean and had good cooking facilities, comfy bed and was generally a really nice place. Wish we could have stayed for more than one night!

What a great place to stay. Absolutely stunning view over the water with a self contained apartment with was lavishly stocked with all you could want. Seperate bedroom, bathroom, sitting room and kitchen, it was huge for 2 people. It was a short drive to the restaurants but the view was so wonderful, we decided to eat breakfast on site....

This was the best place we stayed in NZ - private, absolutely spectacular view, lovely hosts, all mod cons. You could just stay on that balcony forever ! I recommend the Crows Nest, but am sure all the apartments are first rate. Do yourself a favour - just book this place.
