We enjoyed 3 nights at this lovely villa in Nelson. The view is elevated above the town, yet close enough to run down for a meal or to shop. Breakfast was delicious, and offered early for our morning excusion to Abel Tasman Park. Wayne and Val were very personable, and stored our luggage for 2 nights while we hiked and...

We stayed in the loft suite - a large, most attractively decorated and furnished area. Warm welcome from the very helpful hosts Wayne and Val, and an excellent breakfast. Very handy position so close to the cathedral and shopping areas.

Shelbourne Villa was one street from the main street in Nelson so a five minute walk to the best coffee shops and restaurants. Perfect location a...

Very conveniently located in nelson township, easy walking distance to all the pubs and restaurants. We stayed in the loft apartment which was spacious and (apparently) a bath to die for! Great comfy bed (super king?) that resulted in a great sleep. Breakfasts were fantastic with home made muesli and fruit followed by a cooked breakfast that varied. Wayne is...

We stayed in Loft Suite which had amazing views over Nelson. House is very conveniently located close to city centre and excellent restaurants. Within easy walking distance. House is so quiet and comfortable and the hosts' attention to detail is second to none. Would highly recommend it.

We absolutely loved staying in the Garden Apartment of the Shelbourne Villa. Judy and Wayne are the most hospitable individuals and made us feel right at home. They had plenty of recommendations and helped us accomplish all of the things on our New Zealand honeymoon bucket list. Breakfast was an especially exciting highlight -- they are both wonderful in the...
