Nelson Accommodations

Arriving in the port city of Nelson places you at the top of the South Island of New Zealand. At your leisure, a visit to galleries and the arts centre – with a relaxing pause at one of the outdoor cafés - makes for a pleasant day. For a serene glimpse into the past, the Victorian inspired Queens Gardens is often a place for social gatherings. For the ultimate sea-side experience, head to Tahunanui Beach. Build a sand castle. Hang on and go windsurfing. How long has it been since you went roller skating, or played a game of mini golf? This family-friendly beach is where you can join in a game of volleyball and the kids can play at the playground. Take along the picnic lunch you prepared in the kitchen of your vacation rental accommodation, or stop for a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants. Book a helicopter ride for a high-in-the-sky bird’s eye view of this spectacular part of New Zealand.

Put up your feet upon your return to your holiday home accommodation and plan the next day’s activities. Privately-owned vacation rentals are convenient. What is a Skywire? Where can you hop on a four-wheel quad and take a tour, or enjoy horseback riding on forest trails? Happy Valley Adventures is the place to be for an adrenaline rush or family fun. Get ready to hit your target in a game of paintball. Spin in a circle and play in the mud on the Amphibious Argo Ride. Later on in the week, you just might want to go kayaking or snorkeling in Cable Bay. Billed as an easier trail in the beginning and with the road ending at Wayward Point 3, get in gear for fanatic mountain biking. At Wayward Point 4, you will stash your bike and continue on by walking towards the Maitai Caves.

Read what others have to say about vacation rentals. What did they like about their accommodations? Owner Direct Vacation Rentals has all the details, with photos, to help you with your decision to stay in a vacation rental for your lodging accommodations, rather than staying at a hotel. There are condo rentals with an ocean view, or a condo rental in the heart of a city. Historic villas or farmstead villa rentals are often large enough for an extended family or a group of friends - making villas a popular choice. Navigate this easy-to-use website and you can photos of chalet rentals, cottages and cabins.
