My modern 2 storied home is in 'The Wood', a very favoured inner-city suburb and is an easy walk to town. I welcome non-smoking mature travellers and offer Bed & a healthy continental Breakfast, and make my guests feel very welcome.
The sunny bedroom is upstairs and offers views to the hill suburbs of Nelson. I offer a choice of cereal, selection of fruit, yoghurt, toast, tea & coffee.
The area is quiet and close to the award-winning 'Sprig & Fern' bar/ restaurant, a corner store and takeaway. Around the corner is The Wood Retirement Village. Walking distance to Trailways Conference Centre, the Riverside Pool, Founders Heritage Park and The Centre of NZ (25 minutes). The Suter Art Gallery always has great exhibitions and the Suter Cafe is hard to beat with views over Queens Gardens with some of the best cafe food in Nelson.
I have interesting art in my home and a pretty garden to relax in. I'm used to welcoming people and have a warm personality.
'The Wood' was originally settled by many Italian families who came to grow Tomatoes in Nelson as far back as the 1840s. Where Casa Bella is situated was where the glasshouses were, hence me giving it an Italian name. Many of the streets and lanes have Italian names and today the Italian families are a very visible part of Nelson.
Guests have access to the lounge, share bathroom, the garden and of course the Internet. The bathroom has a hair dryer, body wash, shampoo and conditioner.
Interakcija s gostima
I have a great knowledge of what's on in Nelson and can help guests to find that special restaurant, attraction, or the walks that are close by, and I have brochures available. See the wonderful Saturday Market, cycle The Great Taste Trail, Do a Lord of the Rings Helicopter Tour, walk the Able Tasman, and more.
The bus terminal is in the centre of town, and as a good timekeeper, I'll see you don't miss that vital link.
I was previously a Homestay person and have had students from Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Brazil. Saudia Arabia and Chile.
No smoking in the house please
