  • Owner, Ralph, couldn't do enough for us. Unit was hot when I arrived. He brought an extra fan and by nightfall, I was under a blanket. The view is to die for. We're wrapping up a three week trip to NZ exploring the north and South Island. Have stayed many places along the way. The Wheelhouse has been our favorite lodging spot. 5

  • We stayed at the Lookout and it certainly lived up to its name. The views were stunningly beautiful! We also got a birdseye view of the Wed night sailing races in the Bay which was fun. With the binoculars we were able to see that Ralph, our very nice host (with a very interesting life) came in fifth which was pretty good. Nelson is a great town with fantastic restaurants - some of the finest eating we had throughout our 7 week journey in NZ. We would certainly come back to the Wheelhouse- it is a great spot and only a 35 min walk from Nelson. The walk is quite hilly but we loved that. 5
