“Eye for detsils and clean, excellent!”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2016

This property had more than everything we needed. It was well layed out and was very clean. The views werebbetter than advertised and is well located to enjoy a very beautiful town with lots tosee and do. We expect to be booking this property again.

Response from the owner Thanks Ron - we're looking forward to seeing you back! We offer an 'alumni' discount for return guests... Cheers -Stephen and Judith

“Warm, comfortable, clean, and location. It was just what we want”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2014

Our family of three (along with another couple) had the opportunity to spend a long weekend at this property for a ski trip to Whitewater. All in all, the property met or exceeded our expectations. The furnishing is modern and there have been recent renovations to the kitchen and bathrooms. The view from the living room and full size deck is great. Being able to stay in Nelson is great too - as the town has lots of neat restaurants, coffee shops and local merchants. Thanks for the stay. I expect we will return!

Response from the owner Thanks for kind words, Chris! You'll have to come back in the summer - there's great mountain biking and hiking just steps away from the house (and hanging out on the deck watching the sun set down the Valley is pretty sweet!) -S&J

“Stunning views and beautiful accommodations!”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2014

First off, are the owners. Stephen and Judith go out of their way to make sure your stay is perfect. Very accommodating, they go out of their way to make sure you have everything you require and that your stay is as comfortable as possible. Like previous comments, check the fridge when you arrive! A mix of the local craft beers?? You won't find that at any hotel! As for the house, it's very tastefully decorated, very cozy and very comfortable. One of our group had a 2 year old and it was fantastic to see a play pen already on site for the child. Very kid friendly, with games in the television cabinet and an area out back that you can slide down. The kitchen is perfectly appointed, for making either a quick snack or a gourmet meal. The patio out back is large, and when the weather was warmer it was great to sit outside and watch the sun go down. I would highly recommend this booking to anyone who is looking for a home away from home. At the price it's equivalent to a hotel, but with the comforts of home and the ability to stretch out in front of the fire after a day of skiing with a glass of wine in hand. Really, what more could you ask for?

Response from the owner Thanks Jeff! We do like to try to add some nice touches for our guests like a little 'welcome home' 6-pack of Nelson Brewing Company's best... Stretching out in front of the fire after a day at Whitewater is our favourite thing to do too. Cheers, and thanks for the kind words! -S&J

“Amazing experience with friends”

Reviewed 16 Feb 2014

It was my second stay and it certainly won't be my last. With friends who live in Vancouver and Victoria, and myself in Calgary, Nelson is the perfect meeting spot and this is the perfect place to stay. Enough room for six adults and one toddler we all were able to enjoy the time without feeling packed in. The best part is how much there is to do. While some of us went skiing others enjoyed tobogganing and cheering on Team Canada around the fire. Also a plus was the fully stocked kitchen. Often I find place will have one pot or two knives. Not here! We were able to prepare gourmet meals with ease. A real plus when you're traveling as a group or family. Check in and out were a breeze. Cannot wait to come back to this gem.

Response from the owner Thanks Julie - we're glad your group had fun! Living at the house part-time means we get to keep it stocked with all the things we need, and that means that guests get the benefit of a 'home', not just a 'rental'. (and the back alley is perfect for tobogganing, since it's one of the few in Nelson that isn't used, so it's safe and snowy!) We look forward to having you stay with us again, Cheers, -S&J

“Ski & Snowboard Vacation”

Reviewed 13 Feb 2014

My husband, son (10 years old) and I had a wonderful and unforgettable stay at Judith & Stephen's Home. At first glance we knew we had selected the perfect place to spend our 28 day snowy vacation. Their home itself was the perfect 5* accommodation and provided a heavenly peaceful and relaxing atmosphere after a busy day snowboarding/skiing at the legendary Whitewater ski hill. We would highly recommend the Best View in Nelson for couples or families alike and will definitely return for a holiday in the near future.

Response from the owner Thanks again for staying with us - we're very appreciative that you chose our home for your home! Groups like yours have become the cornerstone of our guests - family with extended fam or friends. There's enough room for everyone to feel comfortable, but cozy enough to feel like you're getting some good time together. We'd love to have you back, anytime! Cheers, -S&J

This beautiful home is nestled in the mountain and says welcome home from the moment you drive up. The view from the deck is amazing all day long. Nelson is hot in the summer but the nights can cool down so that there is a soft breeze blowing in through the windows allowing you to sleep in comfort. It is so close to several pools and the lake. The yard was also a huge plus for us having children who adopted a neighbors cat while we were visiting. It felt just like home!

Response from the owner Thanks Karen - we're happy your family had a great stay in Nelson! Because we live in the house ourselves part-time, we try to keep it feeling like home, whether its us staying there, or guests. (and we like the neighborhood friendly animals too!) Hope to see you again, -Stephen and Judith

“Stunning views, perfect for families”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2013

We really had a fantastic time staying here with our family. The position was perfect for us, a quiet road about 20 minutes walk (downhill!) into town, close to a lovely park and waterpark The house had everything we needed for our stay and more. The rooms were spacious, nicely furnished, clean and tidy and the covered deck was just amazing with beautiful views over Nelson. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. It was more than a vacation rental, Stephen and Judith share their lovely home with their guests and for us, it felt like home from home.

Response from the owner Thank you for choosing us for your stay in Nelson! A group like yours was exactly what we had in mind when we started offering the place for vacation rentals: mom, dad, kids, plus grandparents! It's nicely set up for a group like that, with enough space that nobody ever feels like they're getting crowded! After your adventurous start to the vacation with the moose encounter, we're very happy that the rest of your trip was fun and relaxing! Cheers, Stephen and Judith

“Extraordinary !!!”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2013

This home was the perfect solution to our needs. Our son recently got married in Nelson and several friends and family members traveled from far and wide. The home was extremely comfortable and the host and hostess left no stone unturned when it came to amenities. Loved it. Will be back Thank You for your hospitality Stephen and Judith The Hoskins Family

Response from the owner Thanks so much, and we're glad that you chose us for your stay! A big part of the reason we bought the house in the first place was because it could host family and friends for get-togethers, both on the deck, and inside. The house isn't huge, but it's well suited to having groups over for a bbq and beverages! Thanks again, and we look forward to seeing you again! Cheers, -S&J

“Great value, great location”

Reviewed 30 May 2013

Incredible views from this home in the middle of Nelson. Comfortable rooms and excellent amenitities provided. We particularly enjoyed the huge outdoor space and bbq. Highly recommend this for families or groups who want to have the perfect home base from which to explore the Kootenays. Great value, great location, great rental. We will be back.

Response from the owner Thanks Doug, and next time, you'll have to make a trip from Vancouver to Nelson on your Triumph! The winding mountain roads (with little traffic) along Hwy 3 are amazing for motorcyclists, I'm told.

“A lovely long weekend”

Reviewed 23 May 2013

I stayed at this vacation rental with six friends over the May long weekend and we had an amazing time! The house sits high on a hill over looking the valley and the large covered deck provides a great location to sit back and enjoy the spectacular views. The deck and outdoor kitchen provide an excellent space for bbq'ing and bar tending. When things cooled down in the evening we were able to move into the large living room to relax in front of the fire. This house easily accommodated the six of us, with room for extras! The location of the house is also great, just a short walk or drive to downtown Nelson. The little touches are definitely what sets this vacation rental apart. From the slippers provided to the basket of toiletries you may have forgotten, you get a touch of hotel with the comfort of home. Stephen and Judith haven't overlooked anything, they are amazing hosts! I would definitely recommend a stay at "Best Views" to anyone planning a trip to Nelson.

Response from the owner Thanks for the kind words, Jill! I'm glad your group had a good time in Nelson. It's a bit of a drive to get here, but that's part of what makes it a special place. Judith has a long history in the hotel industry, and those touches like providing slippers and extra toilletries are definitely all her! Thanks again, and we're looking forward to welcoming your group back for a ski vacation! -Stephen and Judith
