Rodger and Judy's Nelson home is a superb combination being comfortable, terifically organised, with the immeasurable bonus of fantastic sea and mountain views from every bedroom and their sheltered deck and eating area. Our family spent Christmas there and it was an absolute pleasure to cook in the well equipped kitchenand well stocked larder. We loved visiting Nelson with its characterful markets and gallery's. Day trips to the Nelson Lakes and Abel tasman kept us fit with hiking and we also relaxed with some great food and wine tastings at the local vinyards. We were grateful for the loan of the car which allowed us to explore the local area extensively. This exchange was a high light of our trip to New Zealand. Thank You
Judy and Roger had picked us up from the airport to their gorgeous and so clean house. We had a delicious lunch prepared by Judy with succulent bread made by Roger. It was a real pleasure to talk with them. The view from the house is simply amazing. There are many things to do in the area. There are many museum and art galleries.(Suter Art Gallery, Parker Gallery, Nelson Provincial Museum) Very interesting. We visited Queens' Garden; wonderful We had great sunny days for walking and hiking. We enjoyed Nelson Tantagee trail, Maitai cave trail and particularly Abel Tasman park, fantastic! Everything was perfect in this swap. Thank you so much Judy and Roger!
Landing in Nelson at our host's house was like landing in paradise. The house was large and spacious and had a million dollar view. Every last detail was addressed to make us feel at home. A delicious meal was provided on our arrival. The owners checked back with us regularly to ensure the exchange was going well. Our national flag was flying from their flagpole when we arrived. We had room for guests and the house had every possible convenience.
Our 10 day stay in Nelson was a great experience and we loved their home and the ever-changing views and sun-sets - the house is near the city, though you need to be a 'mountain-goat' walking back, as the road is steep, so we suggest that guests use their car. Roger and Judy were amazing and helpful hosts and the house was very clean and well presented - 5 star rating from us thanks guys!
We expected that Nelson would be a great exchange destination, and it certainly was, but Judy and Roger's care in making sure we were comfortable went far beyond our expectations. Their home is spacious, warm and immaculately maintained, with every possible convenience. And the view! Ever changing water views across Tasman Bay to the Southern Alps, sometimes snow-capped, and some brilliant sunsets. Fantastic memories, thank you so much Judy and Roger. And thank you also for taking such good care of our home and car in Australia. Peter and Maggie
very comfortable, Nelson a joy to visit
We loved the house and Nelson. The surroundings are stunning and our hosts made sure we had all the information to enjoy them.
