Waimea Estuary is the largest estuary in the South Island and is home to wide range of bird life; terns, herons, oyster catchers, kingfishers, spoonbills (occasionally) and of course seagulls. We also have the usual songbirds waxeyes and finches.

At high tide the sea can comes up to the road at the end of our driveway. It is an ideal spot for kayaking, windsurfing and swimming. We are a couple of minutes away from the boat ramp and jetty. The jetty is a popular spot for taking a dip and fishing. We have a small sit on kayak if you want to have a paddle.

Cycling is very popular around here. We are 3 minutes from the Great Taste Trail, an extensive country and coastal cycle trail that takes in the best the region has to offer.

Imagine waking up to the aroma of freshly baked bread... We arrived on a very rainy day and received a warm welcome from Francie and Craig and their sweet dog Gus! It was very rainy while we were there but that didn't affect the lovely view of the Nelson bay from their deck. Very quiet and peaceful area with a fun pub and good restaurant nearby. We especially liked the fresh baked bread and jam for breakfast. Special thanks for all your recommendations but especially the one for Pic's Peanut Butter factory tour... Really fun!

Frances and Craig were great hosts during our 3 night stay. This was our first airbnb experience so we did not know what to expect. They were very hospitable and flexible (our schedule was rather erratic!). Monarco is beautiful at high tide and a relaxing place to walk. The neighbourhood is quiet and friendly and we had chats with the locals during our strolls. The use of the bicycles was helpful and Gus the greyhound is gentle and well behaved. Our room was very hot in the summer weather, but on the positive side I loved the espresso coffee.. flowers in every room... perfume selection available in the bathroom... plenty of seating indoors and out... fresh home grown fruit for breakfast... home made bread! Altogether many lovely personal touches that we appreciated. I felt relaxed there and Frances and Craig were very friendly and engaging.

We were welcomed and given a tour of the rooms. As first time airb&b users we were not sure what to expect. The upstairs facility was somewhat difficult for my wife, as has had surgery in both knees. The location is in close proximity to the Nelson airport, with tidal estuary almost surrounding the area that made it very picturesque at full tide. Our host and hostess were friendly. I have no idea as to how they would rate, as we had no previous experience to draw from.

Thanks for your feedback Ken. Dorothy would have been welcome to use the elevator if we had realised she was having problems with the stairs. I hope the rest of your holiday went well.

Our first Airbnb experience and what a pleasure it was! Craig and Frances were fantastic hosts and really made us feel welcome. We were treated to delicious homemade breads and loved waking up and going to bed with a warm fire. Their B&B is in an ideal location- easy access to the shops and walking paths and surrounded by so much beauty! Such a warm and lovely experience. And of course Gus the Greyhound was our favourite :)

Frances and Craig are real Superhosts! Their house is perfectly located to enjoy Nelson with its Wineries and Craftbeer houses or to explore Able Tasman. Both made our stay perfect and we can recommend to stay at anytime. We also could use their bikes and rods as we liked. And we now understand a bit more of rugby!

We received warm hospitality in a beautiful home right across the street from the sea; not much more one could ask for. This B&B offers great comfort with thoughtful hosts that will make your stay in Nelson unforgettable. Breakfasts with freshly baked bread each morning was a real treat.
