Our Story

Want a home away from home, in a location that will make your heart soar? This is it! A beautiful 13 minute drive just north of Nelson centre, Big Sky is 300 meters (900 feet) above sea level, with commanding views of Tasman Bay. Enjoy complete privacy, gorgeous sunsets and sunrise if you're up early. 

Our B&B rooms are modern, offering uninterrupted panoramic views. Situated on a separate floor of our own modern-style eco house, the guest rooms have their own spacious ensuite bathrooms, king size beds, private entrance and deck. There's a fridge, a kettle, microwave and toaster in the kitchenette. Have your coffee or breakfast in your room, in the shared breakfast area or the middle deck.

All spaces (naturally) enjoy the ever-changing view. 

And the views are superb, the atmosphere relaxing, and you will be perfectly situated for daily excursions in the region. Stop by for 2-3 nights or immerse yourself longer in the tranquility and peace of Big Sky.

We are delighted that practically everybody who stays with us wish they had booked another night, if only to just sit and relax. After all, you're already "in the view".


A Classic Celebrity Hideaway, Big Sky offers sanctuary, seclusion, privacy and total anonymity in a fantastic location - to give you the perfect Time Out.

At Big Sky Nelson we practice the Golden Rule, applying it to people as well as to the planet. Our grounds are organic, as are the products we use, we harvest rain water and sunshine, recycle of course, and our car is 100% electric! If you arrive by EV, you can charge your electric car for free!

We look forward to hosting you
