“Highlight of our NZ Trip!”
Reviewed 18 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Mary responded quickly to any emails, sent us detailed directions and was the perfect host. She greeted us warmly on arrival and showed us the apartment (it's like a penthouse), which has the wow factor the minute you walk in the door! It is clean, spacious, beautifully furnished, has a well equipped kitchen (plus a washing machine) and the most fantastic views plus amazing balcony to sit and enjoy the sunshine and watch the world go by. There are restaurants nearby so no need to drive which is brilliant and then back to watch the sunset from the balcony - perfect!

With non stop overnight stays this has been our favourite accommodation so far and has totally spoilt us for the rest of the trip! Photographs don't do it justice but be assured you won't be disappointed. However don't make the same mistake as us ... stay for more than one night! It really is fantastic!

“Exquisite apartment and sea views to die for”
Reviewed 19 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We had just the most wonderful stay at Arrow Rock! The view and position just above the sea was sublime so relaxing and the apartment is so well appointed you couldnt want for more. Mary was lovely and the booking and finding the apartment was very straight forward and easy. One of the best places we have ever stayed and we will definitely be back. We felt bad because we left without writing in the guest book... but we will be back!

“Best place we stayed at in New Zealand”
Reviewed 6 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016
person found this review helpful

We had a 13 day honeymoon in New Zealand and by far Mary's place was our favorite that we stayed in on the entire trip. Mary is an absolute professional -- sent detailed maps and instructions ahead of time (with photos for easy guidance), gave us a great welcome tour, had detailed information about everything in the apartment, and provided free breakfast. The apartment itself feels very recently renovated -- beautiful large deck, lots of wall to ceiling windows and natural light, new bathroom, etc. It feels like a luxury hotel. Mary also has a lot of pride about the country and Nelson in particular and provides some history of the city, and also has a fun collection of vintage New Zealand travel books (fun to see how some areas have changed in the last 30-40 years). The views are spectacular and it's fun to watch the large ships go by. Highly recommend and would love to stay again!

“The view! ”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My wife and I stayed here while in Nelson for our 40th wedding anniversary. We returned to Nelson as we had our honeymoon all those years ago at Kaiteriteri Beach.

Firstly we sincerely thank Mary for having us as guests in the apartment. I do not believe you would easily find other accommodation with such a magnificent view across the harbour to the distant ranges. The location is excellent (especially for walking). The inner city is walkable distance and a harbourside walk is right over the road.

The apartment is comfortable, modern, spacious and very well equipped, furnished and maintained. The little extras for guests is very thoughtful. The large deck gets sun from mid-morning through to sunset.

My only caution would be to those with mobility restrictions, elderly, or who can't carry luggage or heavy items. Access is via a steep driveway and there are a considerable number of steps from the car park to the apartment. For anyone else it is arguably good exercise.

In summary it was the most wonderful experience and exceptionally good value.
