Here is my quaint, modest 1898 cottage walking distance to the town with a spacious bedroom and tasteful decor throughout. It would suit a mature single traveler wanting conversation or quiet, comfort and great breakfast. I do welcome couples though as well.
Non-smokers only please.
I have been known to tour guide guests in lieu of them hiring a car, either taking them to vinyards or drive to Mapua or Motueka for a small cost.
Being an 1898 cottage the decor has been a little bent on French/African mixed with shabby chic. Nothing gives me more pleasure than making a guest at home. Any space is only as good as its host and I will endeavour to make your stay relaxing and memorable. The bathroom is right opposite the guest bedroom and I usually plan to use it myself when my guests are out exploring, so in effect is your ensuite.

I have an outgoing personality and pride myself in reading people reasonably well.
I have downsized my life. In another life, I have travelled and skied all over the world.I have lived in New Zealand now for 40 years; have lived in the US, South Africa, France and Germany.
My favourite travel would have to be France. I lived in the South and nearly didn't come home. I loved the people and lifestyle and of course their architecture and decor.
The things I love now, is my little cottage, my cat, DIY, decor, gardening and cooking and enjoy Arthouse movies. I have an eclectic taste in music and have spurts of reading, then nothing. I am an accomplished seamstress and amateur artist.
To have me as your host, I can provide transport if you are arriving from a bus or plane, My own style of travelling was to get to know people in the area, rather than stay in a hotel. I would have loved Airbnb as I hated paying double when travelling as a single plus the added bonus of meeting people in their own homes.
I can recommend where you can go to get a bigger picture of the area. Nelson is beautiful, cultured and the sunniest town in the country.
My Motto: People don't always remember what you have done, but they always remember how you made them feel!
