Spacious house with sea view, Nelson, New Zealand

Our home is conveniently located in a quiet neighbourhood 3km from Nelson CBD and 800m from a cycle way to the city. We have small fenced garden, outdoor seating at back plus a deck at the front. There is a small park nearby.
We have three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs with spacious living area which has lovely views to the sea and hills. Downstairs we have a double bedroom and a toilet. There is a double garage with good off-street parking.
We are connected to ultra-fast broadband. We have 2 adult bikes available for use.
There are many things to do in Nelson, which is at the top of the South Island. The local airport has good connections to New Zealand's international and regional airports.
The area has great beaches, walkways and cycle tracks. Sailing, kayaking and mountain-biking are popular. There are a large number of art and craft galleries in the vicinity. Wonderful vineyards, craft beers and fresh produce are all handy.
Weather is temperate. However, if there is a cold snap we have a log fire with plenty of wood for visitors.

About Our Family

We are an active semi-retired couple in our late 60's who enjoy travel and would like to travel more. We have one adult daughter who is studying at university in another town. We also have a miniature schnauzer dog, 'Stella", who is very much part of our family. We can arrange to board her unless folks particularly wanted to have her as "part of the package."

Lifestyle

We enjoy gardening, walking, reading, going to films and being involved in various community groups, such as U3A (University of the 3rd Age), SeniorNet, Probus,Genealogy.

Robyn loves the sea and is a diver. Bob feels more comfortable on top of the water, kayaking and sailing.

We have completed non-simultaneous exchanges with a couple in Austria in 2015 and Bath, England., in 2016. We spent time in the midi-Pyreneese, France, in 2017 and Portugal in September, 2018. We are looking to do a simultaneous or non simultaneous exchange.
