Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Nelson is a relaxed, friendly city set in scenic Tasman Bay at the top of the South Island. Our region is a popular holiday area. Abel Tasman National Park is easily accessible by car or bus from Nelson.
Our home is situated in the central city beside the Maitai River. It is a short walk to shops, cafes, theatre and the tourist infomation centre. Nearby Tahuna Beach is easily reached by car or bus.
We have a two bedroomed flat with open plan lounge, dining and kitchen. The living areas have river views. Our home is comfortable and very easy to live in. It is cool in summer and warm in winter with a log fire and a heat pump. We have an outdoor sitting and barbeque patio at the back of the flat. There is space for two car parks.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our location is close to the city centre. An easy walk or a short drive away. We have good shopping and many restaurants and cafes. The museum, art galleries, gardens, churches and theatres are all in the city centre. In summer our street scene is enlivened by outdoor cafes and occassional buskers. Every Saturday our market attracts many people.
There are pleasant walkways and cycle paths along the river and into the Maitai Valley. Walkways and cycle paths also go down to the port and out to popular and safe Tahuna Beach. Lovely views can be seen from the beach and from Rocks Rd on the way to Tahunanui. Near Tahuna beach Tahunanui village has cafes and bars.
From Tahunanui it is just a few minutes ride to join the Great Taste bike trail. This trail includes popular Rabbit Island beach and passes vineyards, cafes, etc and eventually ends in Kaiteriteri with its golden sand beaches and mountain bike park.
Nelson is the home of wearable arts and the WOW gallery of wearable art and classic cars off Quarantine Rd is worth a visit.
Richmond town centre with a modern shopping mall is about 20 minutes drive away.
