“Marvellous aspect”
Reviewed October 6, 2014 for a stay in August 2013

I rented this villa long term in 2013 for about 4 months, from mid-winter into the beginning of summer. It is very well appointed with a high standard of chattels and furnishings. There is a longish staircase from the street to the front door but not too taxing and also a motorised bag lift to assist half way if you need it. It was warm and dry in the winter and light and airy in summer. The neighbourhood is pleasant with many gardens and well kept houses.
The view is superb! There are many vantage points within the villa to appreciate it and it really does make the villa quite wonderful, certainly to the extent that you think twice before going out if you have to, i.e. it's a very relaxing getaway place, private and attractive.
There's no doubt it is an expensive rental, but worth it in my opinion.

“Perfect base, perfect view, perfect location”
Reviewed December 1, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

My business partner and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Able Tasman villa for two weeks.

We were in Nelson for business however searched for a place that we could relax at the end of a days work and enjoy the best of Nelson.

Nelson has so much to offer however you will find it difficult to leave the villa with its perfect setting overlooking the harbour entrance and Tasman Bay with the most amazing sunrises and sunsets.

Morning and evening walks around the surrounding hills and along the water front are a great way to absorb much of the special ambience of Nelson. Home to the villa in the evening for a BBQ and relaxing taking in the sunset. Heaven! A 15 minute stroll and you can be in the city shopping and nightlife or down to the famous Tahunanui beach and cafes. Not to mention there are a number of world class restaurants within just five minutes walk if you decide to eat out 'locally'.

Nicola the host goes out of her way to make sure that you settle in and she has all the local knowledge to ensure to get to those special places places that will make your trip all the more memorable.

Yes, we highly recommend the Able Tasman Villa.

“A cut above...”
Reviewed November 9, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

Situated on the hill directly behind the famous Nelson 'Cut' -the channel that divides the inner harbour from the sunny Tasman Sea, Abel Tasman Villa is a well-appointed, sun-drenched retreat with indoor/outdoor flow and fabulous views of the ever changing Nelson seascape.

It is up several flights of stairs,so you get a good workout coming and going , but your luggage is transported by a baggage gondola, so don't sweat!

Our 10 day stay was like living at home, away. I love cooking and the kitchen has all the necessary equipment..and more. We were celebrating, so the champagne flutes were spot on!

There was plenty of linen and bathroom goodies. A garage for the car and broadband and music are available if you get sick of the al fresco lifestyle and views.

All in all, a wonderful experience.

“Wonderful Views of Nelson”
Reviewed November 2, 2011 for a stay in April 2009

We were fortunate enough to stay at the Abel Tasman Villa for some months while settling into Nelson. The Abel Tasman Villa is excellent accommodation with spectacular views across the Nelson Bay to the mountains.
The owner is extremely helpful and very professional. the Villa is tastefully decorated with all the comforts of Executive Class accommodation with stunning views.

We would recommend the Villa to anyone coming to Nelson and wanting quality accommodation with wonderful memories to take home.

“DELIGHTFUL!!!!!”
Reviewed April 18, 2011 for a stay in April 2011

Stayed in this lovely villa for 4 days....HEAVEN! Nicola is sweet, helpful and has set this place up for TOTAL comfort and convenience. The villa is beautifully designed, built, furnished and decorated. Attention to detail is unparalleled. Normally, we would have gone out to eat every night, but the kitchen was so well-appointed and the dining area so pleasant, we bought fresh local seafood, prepared and enjoyed several gourmet meals in the villa. The views from nearly every window are stunning. Bedrooms and bath facilities are plush and super-comfortable. The neighborhood is secluded and quiet, yet a short walk to town. We would HIGHLY recommend this villa. It is thoroughly enjoyable....we hated to leave. Thank you, Nick and Nicola, for making our stay in Nelson so delightful and memorable.
