About This Property

This Waiheke Island property has that special 'wow factor' and enjoys the ambiance of your own intimate boutique resort! The stylish 6 bedroom residence wraps around a private and spacious sun drenched Pool Terrace, complete with your own heated swimming pool, (heated from October to April) and hot spa pool. Outside the fenced pool area is a lovely garden area with outdoor furniture set in a paved arbor beside the Petanque Court - perfect for enjoying a game and a glass of champagne! Enjoy wonderful views over the gardens and Onetangi Bay from the pool terrace, the petanque court and almost every room in the home.

The paved Pool Terrace has perimeter fencing with glass balustrades to ensure the view is not interrupted. The Pool Terrace outdoor furniture includes a large dining table and chairs plus an outdoor lounge setting with a large sun umbrella. The spa pool is under cover and also enjoys views over the bay and Onetangi Beach. Wide glass sliding doors open from the Pool Terrace into the main living room, which opens on the opposite side to another lovely and peaceful deck.

The home is shaped in an 'L' around the Pool Terrace. Along one side are the bedrooms and bathrooms, along with the Games room and the 2nd living room. Across the other side you will find the main living room and the huge, open plan kitchen and dining room as well as another lovely deck opening from the dining area, all overlooking the swimming pool and Pool Terrace and the beautiful views.

The Nelson is in a great central Island location and is just a few minutes drive to either Palm Beach or Onetangi Beach and to Ostend Village where there is a supermarket and other services available. But it's our guess that once you arrive at The Nelson, you'll never want to leave!

    Reviews from Past Guests

    Review by Anahera (Stayed in April)

    Our whānau (10 adults + 2 kids) absolutely loved our stay at The Nelson. While the weather could have been better, the accommodation was warm, clean, relaxing and had everything we needed. Every day was spent in the heated pool and the spa (even in the drizzle) and in-between relaxing naps we took advantage of the games room. The host was accommodating and allowed us to check-in early and we couldn't have asked for more. Highly recommend.

    Review by Grace (Stayed in March)

    Our group had an amazing weekend stay at The Nelson! Such a wonderful holiday house, with everything you could want for a relaxing weekend away. We were a group of 13 adults and there was plenty of space for everyone, comfortable beds, multiple living and dining areas and plenty of bathrooms. The pool and spa were fantastic, perfect temperatures, and very well used during our stay. The whole place was clean, tidy and well maintained. Claire was a great host and very welcoming! It was handy to have her there for check in and check out and just made the whole process easy. We'd love to stay again!

    Review by Jenny (Stayed in March)

    Our stay at the Nelson was great. The house had heaps of room and the heated pool and spa pool were great. The house itself had everything we needed. Lots of space to chill out. While we were aware the owner lived on site, she was away the weekend so we didn't meet her until our last night. She did come to the house on our last morning to collect towels, water plants etc which was a bit off-putting. Just thought she should have waited until we left which was before the 10am check out time.
