Barbara and Gordon Dicker were born in Nelson but having travelled extensively
in New Zealand and overseas know the type of accommodation which will
suit a variety of clientele.
They have been involved in many outdoor activities and are happy to advise you
on places to visit for those who want to explore Nelson and surrounding
We warmly welcome you to Beacon View, a name chosen not only because of the many
harbour beacons that can be seen from the house but also to reflect the
long family connection with Nelson Lighthouse. Gordon's Great,Great Grandparents
were lighthouse keepers for almost 30 years from soon after the lighthouse
was erected on the Boulder Bank in 1861. He can recall the many stories
his Great Grandmother told of her day to day life on the Boulder Bank
and the family has continued to have strong connections with the sea.
