Mary thought of everything. The unit is so nicely decorated and very comfortable and pleasant. The view is spectacular!

“arrow rock winter one night stand”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2013

My partner and I were looking for a one night stay in Nelson. Many "decent" looking places have 2 night minimums, but mary at arrow Rock was happy to offer us one noght. What a treat, really. Very spacious one bedroom suite, self contained, beautiful and comfy lounge suite, good home theatre system and movie selection - perfect for a cold winters night- and a most comfortable bed...all with a view to die for. Walking distance is 8 minutes to Tahnunanui beach - where you can walk or jog for miles. (If you do walk down the Tahnunanui...take care crossing the main access way wakefield quay , on foot - ditto with a bicycle. Traffic is nasty and I live (in hope) for the day when it isn't a commercial through route for the big trucks!) Boatshed restaurant is 400 metres to the north, several cafes and other eating places 8-10 minutes walk to the south. Comparisons? ...we have stayed in the nearby Wheelhouse Inn several times in the past - but we found it both pricey and, for our tastes, the beds were uncomfortably hard. Mary was exceptionally helpful in organising our stay, parking, ...nice to have the owner nearby too.

“What makes a good holiday.”

Reviewed 10 May 2010

Trying to determine where to stay when planning a holiday is extremely hard when you have never been to a spot. Mary & Peter's was like finding a winning loto ticket in your pants pocket.It is a new place and they have all the added touches such as big screen TV, Movies, Stereo, BBQ and the best of all the most magnificent view you could ever want. We actually felt that we did not have to leave the unit as you could never get a better view and the sun was shining the entire time. They have added a great deal of personal touches to the place that make it a pleasure to stay at. Your hospitality was outstanding and there is nothing negative we could ever add to this experience. Gentlemen this is the place to take your partner for a nice glass of wine and sit on the balcony and watch the view.

“Probably the best apartment in NZ”

Reviewed 8 Apr 2010

The title is meant honestly: spectaculous view over the sea, nice balcony, very nice hosts, tasty cookies, a bottle beer in the fridge, more entertainment equipment than we have at home... nothing missing for a wonderful holiday. Thanks again.

“Fabulous accommodation”

Reviewed 5 Apr 2010

We have stayed at many places around the world and the Arrow Rock Waterfront apartment was one of the best. It was great value for such luxury. Mary was so friendly and we wished we had have stayed longer. The view from every room is outstanding and enjoyed watching the sailing boats and sunset while we cooked seafood on the barbeque and drank a lovely bottle of wine. Definately add this apartment to your list.

“Superb accommodation”

Reviewed 30 Mar 2010

We had the most wonderful two nights at Arrow Rock Waterfront Apartment. Mary was just fantastic and went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable with those lovely extras such as the bottles of beer and the Arrow Rock Sauvignon Blanc wine all nicely chilled, masses of fresh fruit,a loaf of bread, milk, plus a great selection of breakfast cereals. There was even a picnic hamper available. The apartment is very nicely furnished and has a large terrace with BBQ, so instead of going to one of the local restaurants, we chose to dine-in and take advantage of the late afternoon sun and the beautiful view. We would thoroughly recommend Arrow Rock as the perfect holiday apartment - apart from such fine hospitality, the view was absolutely superb. We will return. Thankyou Mary and Peter.

“Arrow Rock Apartment - rocks!”

Reviewed 6 Mar 2010

The view is wonderful - harbour constantly changing and comfortable balcony seats encourage you to chill out and rest! Facilities inside are superior - everything you could want for a self-catering holiday and generous provisions when you arrive as well - milk, bread, fruit, etc. Hostts friendly, approachable, helpful but not interfering. An excellent place to stay - nothing more to say!

“Unexpected gem in Nelson”

Reviewed 3 Mar 2010

Absolutely fabulous apartment on Nelson's waterfront. The views were amazing - we could sit on the balcony for hours! About half an hour walk to Nelson centre, or 15 mins the other way to the beach. Cafes about 5 mins away, so perfect location. Modern and contemporary inside, to a very high standard and extras such as wine, bread, milk and cookies on arrival, free wifi and apple tv for free movies were fantastic. Really private and great service from our hosts. Amazing value for money for the four/five star accommodation. We stayed 10 days and it was brilliant - thoroughly reccommended!!!!
