Visitor Reviews

"From the moment we first started considering Ah House, through the final moments saying goodbye to our hosts, our experience with Ah House was top notch! Mark and John were exceptionally responsive to our initial inquiry, and we had a nice conversation when we booked the room, during which Mark offered anything he could do to help us plan our time in Nelson. When we finally arrived, we were greeted warmly, and made to feel at home immediately. Our stay in the lovely garden apartment was delightful, and we took advantage of the opportunity to share part of the evening on the patio with our hosts and others. Breakfast was served ready for us exactly when we asked for it, and Mark had set a lovely table on the back deck, complete with linens, fine china, and scrumptious food! Home made museli, fresh muffins, toasts, jams, cereals - the works. Overall, our stay left us with extremely fond memories of the last major destination on our honeymoon in New Zealand."
