About this Holiday House

Recently refurbished with brand new shower room, Riversong is located next to the beautiful Maitai River which flows through Nelson City. This peaceful location in the quiet residential neighbourhood of The Wood is right on the edge of the central city, a five minute walk to Nelson's rich array of cafes, shops and restaurants. This two bedroomed townhouse is fully equipped to ensure that it feels like a home away from home. The sunny living room has windows to the north and west ensuring all day sun. With views over the flower filled garden to the tree-lined Maitai River this is a wonderful spot to relax with a book, listen to some music or watch a selection of TV channels on Freeview on the 32" LED flat screen TV. Free WiFi is also included. The living room also has a dining table to seat 4 people and is next to the kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with a hob, oven, fridge freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster, and pantry basics such as tea, coffee, herbs, spices and olive oil are provided. In addition to the essentials, experience a real taste of Nelson with the Nelson Pantry – a selection of locally made products for you to enjoy during your stay. Items include Pic’s Peanut Butter, Tasman Ridge olive oil, Sublime locally roasted plunger coffee, dukkah, local chutneys and jams and other treats! However if you've forgotten anything the nearest supermarket is only a 3 minute walk away and the Milton St Dairy, Milton St fish and chip shop and the Sprig and Fern pub within 5 mins walk. The two bedrooms have comfortable beds and feature quality cotton linen. Each bedroom has a built in wardrobe, bedside tables and bedside lights. The new bathroom features a shower with great water pressure, vanity, heated towel rail, extractor fan, mirror cabinet and toilet. There is a washing machine and outside clothes line for drying laundry. The peaceful flower filled garden at the front of the property gets all day sun, has a dining table and chairs and has lovely views across to the river. Riversong is an ideal city retreat for couples, and children over 9. Riversong too big or too small?

I spent January 2017 in Riversong,great position by the river,quiet and peaceful ,but easy walking access to everything you need in town......and there is also everything you need in the house for a comfortable relaxing stay, plus a very pretty front garden.
This little home is very comfortable ! the locations is ideal, as it sits beside the river which you can cross and follow into the town centre or continue walking along the pretty river bank. Homely, very comfy beds, aboslutely everything you could need ! The cottage garden out in front is gorgeous, to sit ( table chairs, umbrella at the ready). Cute retro kitchen, modern renovated bathroom. We loved the books and folders that were there to share.... Such a special spot in a very special city - love Nelson !!
Great place to stay. Very clean and suited our needs perfectly. Great location, short walk into town and only a short walk to the Sprig and Fern on Milton Street. What more could you need? Would definitely recommend.
