Almyra is a large, spacious, modern single storey home with guest accommodation in one wing comprising 2 suites and an 'overflow' room for late bookings. We did not book late (4-5 months in advance) but due to a mix up with the booking system, found ourselves in the overflow room rather than one of the suites advertised on the website. The room was spacious enough and well appointed and the mix up in no way deterred from our enjoyment of the stay. The hosts, Fiona and Ron are lovely; very warm, very welcoming, very professional and very friendly. The house is stunning; the pool which guests have use of is the perfect temperature and the atmosphere at Almyra s very relaxed and welcoming; you really do feel like you are staying in your own perfect home in the sun, with water and mountains and beautiful gardens around you. The hosts cannot do enough to make the stay as enjoyable as possible; they put on evening drinks on the patio for any guests wanting to partake but there's no problem if you don't. Ron even played golf at his local club with my golf obsessed other half which was over and above the call of duty! The views are spectacular, the attractions (Able Tas National Park, Golden Bay, Nelson, wineries) easily accessible, the the nearby village has ample eating options. We were there for 3 nights and could easily have spent a week there, it's a great place to stay. Ron cooked us a yummy breakfast every morning but I think the suites as advertised on the website have a self catering option. There are quality washing facilities for $10 a load which was very welcome.
