  • One of the best AirBnbs we’ve ever stayed. It was only the two of us this time but it would be perfect for two couples, with each having their own king bed and en-suite apartment at opposite ends of the house. This is a place you could stay for an extended time; all appliances available and full-size; all kitchenware for cooking up a storm; full laundry facilities. I’d love to come back in winter to see to sit and watch the view of the mountains out those wonderful windows.

    Susan2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Superb views from this house. Very luxurious accommodation. Extremely comfortable.

    Alex2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! No words to this space justice. Unbelievably stunning home set on the hillside with views from the windows that look like paintings. Stay. HERE.

    Robin2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • This house probably has the premier location in town. Set on the hill it enjoys stunning views across the lake from all rooms - including while sitting up in bed with a morning coffee. Well equipped with everything you need and spotlessly clean. Perfect for two couples.

    Graham2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Andrew's place is located up a small incline, it therefore provides beautiful views of the mountain range. the unit itself is spacious and has all the amenities needed for a very comfortable stay. highly recommended

    Benjamin2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, what a beautiful spot to stay. The house is just as bright, clean and welcoming as it looks, with fabulous views and native trees all around. The Lake is a short 5-min walk away, and the restaurant and shop are even closer... if you need them! We took food and did most of our cooking at the house, which was perfectly set up for it. An incredibly relaxing trip. We'd happily return, anytime!

    Claire2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is an excellent AirBnB in a supremely scenic location. Andrew was a well organised and communicative host, and made checking in a breeze.T he house is immaculate and tastefully decorated. - very modern, very high quality, and exceptionally clean. The beds were very firm (some people will like this more than others). Each full-size bed consisted of two king singles pushed together to create a bigger bed, which gives the option of separate beds if needed. The house was well equipped with a good range of cooking essentials (including oil, salt and pepper, colander, salad spinner etc as well as the usual pots, pans and cooking utensils) and a very good fireplace. And the location is to die for - absolutely stunning views and a very short walk into town. Highly recommended!

    Saint Arnaud, Tasman, New Zealand

    Our fully renovated 1930s bungalow is nestled in the stunning alpine village of St Arnaud, just a short 5min stroll from the clear waters of Lake Rotoiti. Perfect in any season. In winter curl up with a book, put the heat pump on high and take in the views of the snow capped mountains. Bask in the sun, have a BBQ and pop down to the lake for a dip in summer. Just 1min away from native bush walks running alongside a stream, you’ll love the native birdsong and fresh mountain air.
    The bach has everything you need to enjoy a secluded escape. There are two main bedrooms, a master bedroom with a double bed and another bedroom with a single bed. All beds are high quality and newly purchased. The third bedroom which also features a comfy single bed, is in the fully enclosed porch area. It is worth noting that you will need to walk through this room to access the bathroom however there is a privacy curtain in the bedroom that can be pulled. We now have WIFI so you can stay connected with the outside world (if you wish to). There is a small TV with Freeview channels and a DVD player. If the alpine weather closes in you can snuggle up and watch a DVD or choose one of the classic board games to play. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything from a blender to a sandwich press as well as plenty of cooking and baking gear so you can whip up a batch of scones on a snowy day! There is also a dish drawer and insinkerator to make cleaning up a breeze. To keep you warm (or cool) the bach is fitted with a heat pump.
    The Nelson Lakes area has loads on offer including stunning bush walks or hikes, water sports on the lake, Rainbow Ski Area and trail bike tracks. Lake Rotoiti itself is a 5 minute walk from the bach either through beautiful native bush or down the paved footpath of the main road. The bach is within short walking distance of all St Arnaud facilities and the village centre. The Alpine Lodge Restaurant and Bar is a short stroll away as is the local store, cafe, chapel, gift shop, community hall and Department of Conservation headquarters.
  • Fabulous location with great walks near the lake and great food at Alpine Lodge. Cosy batch. Highly recommended.

  • Pip's apartment is the self contained lower level of the family home. It is extremely spacious, modern, sparkling clean, and set in attractively landscaped grounds. We appreciated the photos and art works on the walls. For us it was a perfect place to spend our last night in the South Island before driving to Picton the next morning and heading back to the North Island.

    Ian2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place, beautiful location, really comfortable and quiet, very friendly welcome from Pip and Finn the dog. Ideal place to rest after a long tramp. Would highly recommend.

    Excellent location for lake activities and bush walks. This bach is one of the closest to the the lake in St Arnaud. Also convenient for more adventurous tramping expeditions. Located on the edge of Nelson Lakes National Park. Warm, spacious living in a solidly constructed bach with peaceful surroundings. Wi-Fi broadband internet included.
  • A great place to spend a relaxing quiet few days.

    Brian2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very peaceful old style bach, super clean, close to lake. Were only 2 of us, but would also work well for a bigger group.

    Penelope2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying here. Surrounded by woods. Warm and welcoming space with many places to relax. Wifi works well. We walked down to the lake every evening to watch the sun set and say hello to the eels under the jetty. The cottage got a bit warm in the afternoon on a hot summer's day, but there are many doors and windows to open for airflow. Would recommend!

    Scott2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay in this fab classic Kiwi bach - so close to the lake and perfect for a family visit to Nelson Lakes. Highly recommended!

    Sonia2020-01-26T00:00:00Z

    Philip2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • This place is an authentic Kiw bach. With all the charm that you would expect. It had free wifi, washing machine, large living area, plus cosy and warm rooms. It had a fire place and ample utensils, good fridge freezer, parking and hotwater. Close to Kerr Bay walking distance from the bach. Easy to access, good communication. Loved it.

    Tracey2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Don's house is located in front of Lake Rotoiti. It is very close to everywhere. The house is quite large, very comfortable and well-equipped. We went swimming in the lake. Everything is fine. It is recommended to attach a hair dryer. After swimming, you can let the long hair dry earlier Thank you, Don

    2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great value. Everything you need Is in this Bach. Lovely location and nice and clean. Don is easy to communicate with and responds quickly. Thanks again Don!! We will like to come back again.

    We are located to the right of the DOC Visitor Centre at 15 View Road (not 11 as it says above!). Spacious and sunny, Fyfe's Place is surrounded by a balcony, perfect for soaking up lake and mountain views and being serenaded by a chorus of native birds. We feel privileged to have our own private track down to the lake. There is plenty of indoor heating as well as a well stocked open fire place to gather around on wintry evenings. Relax and enjoy.
    Spacious, comfortable and light with wonderful views and full amenities. We have a well resourced kitchen with 2 fridges, microwave, dishwasher, stove top, oven and a variety of coffee making machines. There are 2 toilets, a bath and a shower. Guests love the open fireplace. In a cupboard in the kitchen there are a multitude of board games, jigsaw puzzles. Sky TV is provided and there are lots of books and magazines to browse.
    Plenty of parking.
  • Awesome place, very warm and comfortable.

    Yvette2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great location for access to the lake & loads of boat parking. Very well equipped bach with a great garden for kids to play which also gives direct access to the lake. Enough room for two families. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Simon2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Jane2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely warm place with access to the lake through the backyard, modern comfy mattresses and a well equipped kitchen.

    Michael2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Fyfe’s place was an unexpected little gem. Surprisingly well sized, with that all too familiar Bach smell. They’d just had new beds put in which made the experience even better. The lake was an easy 5 minute stroll. Cable TV for those movie nights. Great size for a family or a nest to have people around. Nice collection of games and puzzles. Fully equipped kitchen with lots of fridge space. Even a coffee machine! Will definitely be coming back!

    The Woodsman's Den is a 2 bedroom guesthouse set in your own private corner of our 10 acre property. An amazingly secluded haven that looks out on lush native forest. Wake up to the cacophony of birdsong, fresh mountain air and a sense of well-being. The surrounding area sits nestled amongst the mountains and has an array of outdoor activities on offer. Or how about snuggling by the fire with a book, soaking in the hot tub or wandering down the road to one of the local eateries.
    Just a wander into the village for a meal, a stone's throw to the beautiful Lake Rotoiti and the many outdoor activities available. The Woodsman's Den also offers delicious organic free-range eggs and fresh seasonal produce from our Woodsman's Pantry garden.
    The Woodsman's Den is a safe haven surrounded by a stunning back-drop of native forest and vast mountain ranges. The local village has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

    Nick2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Really totally amazing place. Not enough stars available. Family all adored it. Anna is great host.

    Mark2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay at the Woodsmans Den. The location was absolutely stunning and we loved the views of the old growth forests right out the back door. B The house was pristine and was very cozy. The hot tub was a nice treat at night too. Make sure you take some time to tour the grounds as the little trails and gardens are quite fun to explore. St. Arnaud is quickly becoming one of our favorite locations in NZ, but come prepared as the local restaurants and convenient store present limited options for visitors to the area. Apart from that, Anna was a lovely host and made sure all our needs were met. We hope to be back again soon!

    Liz2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is an outstanding place to stay. The photos do not do it justice. It is modern, stylish, quality accommodation in a lovely location. The hosts are very helpful - we would strongly recommend the ‘Den’

    Gary2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful place, set in a stunning landscape. There were so many thoughtful touches throughout the accommodation - brilliant coffee, eco toiletries, great goody bag and what a view from the hot tub!

  • What a beautiful artistic home! It was so comfortable, clean, great kitchen for preparing a meal and perfectly situated for our stay in St. Arnaud. 2 couples enjoyed the home, from the table with an incredible view of the lake, to the outdoor soaking tub and sauna. A water taxi took us out to the end of the lake for a walk about and back home to pizza take away! We highly recommend this home for a getaway!

    Sam2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Ben and Marcia's place is absolutely amazing! Everything was perfect - the house, the amenities, the views. We didn't attempt to drive up the driveway as our car is a bit low, but the garage is close so not a problem. Favourite bits: underfloor heating in the bathroom, sauna, spa, view, kitchen and super snug 'snug'.... everything really. We didn't want to leave :-)

  • Leisa’s place was just perfect for a Christmas getaway. The house was perfectly clean, and the trouble had been made to set up a Christmas tree and thoughtful decorations around the house to make it feel like home! The house has SO many amenities, which was great as we spent most of our time in the house with friends. The pantry has been thoughtfully stocked with a few key items, which is great as St Arnaud selection is limited. The house does back onto the main road, but as it’s such a quiet place this wasn’t an issue at all The house is about a 10ish minute walk down to the lake (bug spray necessary, but that goes without saying :)), and only a short drive to the Mt Robert car park if you are planning some more adventurous hikes. After a nine hour day hike, the house was perfect to come back to and curl up by the fire. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area :)

  • We really enjoyed staying at Leisa's place and enjoyed the scenery in the area. The house is modern, tidy, clean, and very cozy. We just felt like at home. The amenities were awesome. Love the thoughtful and generous stock of the convenient canned food, milk, coffee and cooking ingredients and gear. It's highly recommended! Thank you, Leisa.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Louise’s place with its panoramic mountain views. The room is super spacious, spotlessly clean with a giant marshmallow bed! We arrived later than planned and Louise recommended pizza at the nearby Cow Shed restaurant which didn’t disappoint. All in all a great start to our west coast road trip.

    Our log cabin is located on a 50acre lifestyle farm in a hidden valley an hour south of Nelson and 40 minutes north of Murchison. It is peaceful and private with stunning mountain views and space to relax. With no traffic noise, the only sounds you will hear are the native birdsong and the Little Hope River running gently beside the property.
    We are fully off the grid and operate our own hydro-electricity unit and solar water heating. There are no power lines, no internet reception and no cellphone coverage. Come to us for a break from technology, reconnect with the natural surroundings and recharge your soul. Past guests often tell us it is so relaxing here they wish they’d stayed longer, so if you have the time consider staying an extra night or two. The river running through the property offers many scenic river walks to swimming holes, picnic spots and even an old railway bridge. We run a lifestyle farm on our side of the property, and you are most welcome to come and meet the animals and learn a little of what we do. Triple Tui is located in one of New Zealand’s best trout fishing areas. Your host Steve is an experienced fly-fishing and hunting guide, and would be more than happy to arrange a fly-fishing or hunting expedition for your stay. Our log cabin is perfect for a romantic getaway where you can simply relax and unwind.
    We are up a quiet rural valley, so you will mostly hear birds and the river. Not many cars venture passed us in a day. You will have total peace and tranquility.
  • Their place was amazing! We absolutely loved the nature - the views from the cabin, the sound of the river, our hike up the river to the old train bridge, the animals, and our nice indoor fire. It was so peaceful being off the grid and we wished we could have stayed longer. It was very private. Tracey was very friendly and kind and we enjoyed our chats with her. We loved the adventurous car trek through the paddocks to the cabin as well :) This was a very memorable experience and we would definitely return.

    Rebekah2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and quiet place near river scenery, kind and helpful host.

    Klara2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

Thanks again for an awesome stay!

    Ann2020-01-12T00:00:00Z

    Sarah2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • What a special place! Being cut-off from WiFi and mobile network, we enjoyed our time a lot. The lodge is completely built of wood. A beautiful place with a warm atmosphere in the forest. River close by and lots of nature will recharge your soul.

    Peter2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for sharing your slice of paradise with us! It was a great place to getaway for the long weekend- even though it rained most of the time! The fireplace and DVD selection was great!

  • We wish we could give our stay at the Gowanbridge B&B more than 5 stars, because it was such an amazing experience for us, and Sandra and Peter truly went above and beyond as the perfect hosts. We're so glad they allowed us to stay on the farm with our 4-year old son, because he will be talking about his wonderful adventures with the horses, donkeys and tractors for years to come! The setting is unbelievably gorgeous and peaceful, the hosts are absolute gems, the apartment is spacious, comfortable and exceptionally clean, and the breakfast is delicious. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

Everything is spotlessly clean and well provisioned including a nice selection for breakfast. Don’t look further if you need accommodation in this area.

    Carl2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous!!!! The space is very big with plenty of beds for everyone. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything you could need.

We both really enjoyed getting to chat with the hosts and we would highly highly recommend this place to anyone traveling through the area.

  • I had a wonderful time staying at the Tophouse!Sadly, I was there for one night but I wish I spent more time there. Beautiful location and wonderful accommodations that are close to Lake Nelson National Park. Getting to know the other guests during our stay and during breakfast was a bonus! I loved the history of the place and how it was exhibited throughout the place. The interior design kept true to the history of the Tophouse! I hope that if I have future trips to New Zealand that I can stay there. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

This place has so much character and history which Helen and Miles will fill in for you. The room is small, but very well appointed with very efficient use of space using antique furniture and period accessories right down to the lace doilies. Helen and Miles will happily answer all your questions and go out their way to make your stay comfortable. Great bed and very clean throughout.

    My cottage is close to Nelson Lakes National Park and Rainbow Ski field. You’ll love my place because it's set amongst farmland and has a wonderful view over the river. The bed is a European King size bed with 2 single mattresses and is very comfy. Your room has it's own TV and is next to the bathroom. If you are looking for an experience, then a bath under our beautiful starry sky will be one you won't forget.
    My home is a modest New Zealand style cottage furnished with European furniture and decors. It is located in a valley away from traffic noise and has a million dollar view! On site is an outdoor bath ( surcharge for use) and plenty of space to chill out in. This is a place people come to to enjoy nature, tranquility and the sound of birds to wake to. Nearby is the Nelson Lakes National Park. Fishing, hiking, walks, 4WD, mountain biking, hang gliding and skiing in winter are a few of the activities on my doorstep. Within 1.5hrs drive are Nelson, Blenheim, Westport, Abel Tasman National Park, Wineries and Arts and Craft galleries. I love to be outside, read, paint, work in the garden and cook using home grown products. I am a Kiwi but have lived in Europe for over 20 years. I speak Dutch, German, Italian, French. I have come back to NZ to enjoy the outdoors and bring with me a touch of the European flair in hospitalilty and food.
    There are no neighbours to be seen, just cows, sheep and nature. Down the road is a waterhole in the river. There is plenty of parking on site and the area is very safe.
  • Jennifer is a warm host. The house is very nice and quiet. The dinner tasted excellent. The room is cozy. Nelson Lakes is a nice area for hiking. I really enjoyed the days.

    Barbara2020-02-05T00:00:00Z

  • Helen & Myles are super hosts. They are accommodating, friendly, engaging, informative and helpful. The Tophouse is very interesting, set back in time, but with modern amenities. Everything is there to make you feel comfortable. The common areas are designed to inspire conversation and interaction with the hosts and other guests. Perfect. You'll enjoy. I recommend this stay.

  • A good and secluded B&B with a lovely Labrador as a company.

  • Lovely, historic Inn with lots of interesting info about the history of the place displayed. Helen and Miles were friendly and accommodating hosts. We had a great view from our bedroom window over to the mountains, the bed was very comfortable and there was a lovely breakfast provided the next day. We even got a chance to see inside the historic bar - thanks Miles! Would definitely stay again if we were in the area.

  • Helen and Miles are amazing hosts. Super accommodating and friendly. If you're as lucky as we were you'll get greeted by a cozy fire and the world's friendliest Labrador, Kacie!

  • Fantastic spot - beautiful scenery, great accommodation. We stayed in a cottage and it was great for us. It's interior and facilities are just perfect. Very well designed kitchen.
