This is an outstanding set of small on-farm holiday homes very close to Nelson. The views are exactly as the photos and other comments indicate. The resident owners are hugely helpful and fun. This is a very agreeable place.

We've done farmstays in NZ before, but Harris Hill takes the cake. Not only is this a HUGE farm with many many many animals, but the accommodation is beautiful as well, with the self-contained cottages providing for a really comfortable and cozy stay with brilliant sea view to boot. Throw in the friendly, thoughtful host family and the perfect vacation...

The place was like a hidden gem. The drive up the hill was through an ordinary driveway along the street but once we turned in, we knew it was no ordinary place. We drove up and up, round the hill and was soon greeted by a breathtaking sight of the boulder bay down below and the turquoise expanse of the...

We stayed at Harris Hill cottages for two nights in October as part of our honeymoon! We had an amazing time! We were greeted by a sign welcoming us and a lovely map showing us where our cottage was. We stayed in Grandma's Cottage and it was clean, quaint, and had amazing views! There was even a quail who visited...

What a gem! Stunning views, an enthusiastic, helpful and friendly host, cows, sheep, an excitable goat, dogs and an ugly pig! Value for money, and not too far from Nelson. Would definitely recommend! It's a quintessential kiwi experience...

Every morning I looked out on the Tasman Bay toward Abel Tasman and thought, "This is ridiculous! I'm so fortunate." The view is world class, but I felt so at ease because the people were so nice and we could feed our food scraps to the Kuni Kuni pig. Weird, I know, but we just loved it there. Another aspect...

The horizon dividing the sky and the sea is the first thing you see through window when you wake up in the morning and open your eyes. After that, when you sit in your bed, you’ll see another line, dividing the green grass and the morning sea. Get up, make yourself a coffee and go onto the deck to share...

My husband and I stayed at Sunshine Cottage for 4 nights of March 19 - 22, 2014. Lovely and simple cottage, with a beautiful view of the ocean on top of a hill. We enjoyed our meals on the decking looking across the waters towards the city. Sue and Mike were great hosts, with simple touches of a "welcome note"...

We are just back from a weekend in nelson and feel so happy to have found this wonderful accommodation. The views are the best I have EVER seen, quite breath taking. I only wish we could have stayed longer as we were just getting into life 'up a hill'. A great place for little ones too as so much to...

I could run out of superlatives to describe our two-night stay here but the main theme is this was the best place we stayed on our 22-day circle of the South Island. So quiet and peaceful, top-of-the-mountain views, comfortable with everything you need for self contained cooking and relaxing, and the famil who owns it could not have been nicer...
