Directory:Amber House Bed and Breakfast Guest House
When our family home was built in the latter part of the reign of Queen Victoria, it stood on the southern shore of Nelson's Haven, with fat little Weka running up and down the strand.
Now the vibrant and exciting city of Nelson has grown up and outwards around Amber House, but our home remains a peaceful and helpful haven for travellers with all of our city's attractions just a short stroll from our front gate.
Our guests can amble to the nearby Miyazu traditional Japanese gardens and listen to the water bell, take a look at the new wharekai on Whakatu Marae, or simply sit on our verandah and enjoy the fragrance of our irish roses in the front garden.
On Friday afternoons, the Farmers Market is just opposite us in Founders Heritage Park while Saturday morning sees many of our guests off to visit the `World-famous-in-New Zealand' craft and artisan market in nearby Montgomery Square where they mingle with locals prodding organic vegetables.
Although crystal chandeliers hang from ceilings more than eleven feet high downstairs, we do have a new 21st Century hot water system, satellite dish, Broadband Internet, en-suite bathrooms and our Rose Room even has air-conditioning.
Upstairs, the en-suite Blue Room has its own balconies with a view over Tasman Bay to the Arthur Ranges on one side and the Sugar Loaf and Botanical Hill (geographical Centre of New Zealand) from the other balcony.
All our rooms are BIG - large enough for two Queen Beds and our Green Room is very good value for families and those on a limited budget and willing to share a bathroom.
Guests compliment us on our hot breakfasts cooked to individual order. Many folks have enjoyed one of our "Ulster Fry"s - or you can just help yourself to fruit any time and from a cold (or `continental' style) buffet breakfast if you`re watching your weight.
Most city buses, the Charabanc and Double Decker city sightseeing tours and all long distance coaches stop right outside Amber House Bed and Breakfast (B & B) Guest House - so you can lie in a bit longer if you're off on a day trip to the Abel Tasman National Park or paragliding that day... We have a garage for Bikes and Kayaks and we grow many of our own vegetables organically in the sunniest place in New Zealand.
Because we have children at primary school we do not allow smoking anywhere on our land. (If you are a Smoker, then the Milton Chalet Motel just down the road would be a good choice of accommodation since they do allow smoking outside some of their budget accommodation units...)
Both Anne and Adam Amber are born and raised in Nelson and we would very much enjoy giving you tips on how to get the best out of your stay in the Top of the South...
