Gay-Owned, Luxury Approved
Richard Hewetson & James Taylor are the friendly owners and hosts at the Te Puna Wai Lodge, Nelson's gorgeous guesthouse. The Haulashore Apartment is the perfect place to stay, with the comfortable setting and sprawling view, encompassing the harbor entrance, Haulashore Island and Tasman Bay.

      Wow... just Wow.
      Richard and Jim were wonderful hosts. A great mix of welcoming, helpful, and respectful. The Fifeshire Suite is a MUST! The views are spectacular. What we loved was how comfortable the place was. Delicious breakfast and a nice walk to "downtown" Nelson. Would definitely return.

      We stayed 4th/5th Feb'10. Couldn't recommend this place and the hosts (James and Richard) more highly. Location is stunning, accommodation is immaculate and generous, and our hosts were warm and welcoming yet respectful of our space.
