We stayed several nights and it was a really good place for two couples exploring and riding in the area . The position is scenic, the layout of the apartment is good and we had a very pleasant stay. I think for a place of this quality and cost it is missing two things - Sky Sport and a dishwasher.

If you travel for adventure and fresh insights but include within your journey the familiar there is always the danger you will hit the law of diminishing returns. After 8 blissful nights in the Kina Suite I can say such a law did not prevail. This was the most fulfilling visit not least because New Zealand is having a wonderful summer (thats if you are not working or back on the school run). The property is being maintained to an exquisite standard and feels as fresh as four years ago. Ron and Fiona remain extremely intuitive hosts knowing how much to step back or step forward and offer help in what is after all is their property. If you wish to live here for a week the kitchen has a two ring hob and small convection oven as well as a Barbeque and Mapua has good shopping facilities where you can obtain excellent produce not least from the Gourmet Butchery. The other point I appreciate, making an extended stay, is their is proper storage for you to put all your clothes away rather than live out of the suitcase. The Abel Tasman and Nelson beckon at either end of the coast 30 minutes or so away. But the trump card for me is the beach at Kina. Mile after Mile or is that Kilometre after Kilometre of unspoilt Beach where you might pass 2/3 people and its 5 minutes from your front door. The walk can be before or after supper or a glass of wine taken on your private terrace as you look across the estuary to the mountains.You can round your evening off as the sunsets and pop down to the arbour for complete seclusion for your final coffee. And of course lets not forget during the daytime after hiking or adventuring If its 30 degrees then there is THAT pool. Back next year for the law of increasing returns you bet.

Everything about our 3 night visit to Almyra was just perfect. The four of us arrived after a beautiful, but very long drive up the west coast from Franz Josef, and within minutes we were relaxing on one of the several decking areas available in the beautiful garden. Having booked both rooms, on arrival, my daughter said she must have our bedroom as it was so luxurious, but ours was even better. The fridge was fully stocked for us including a very nice and much appreciated bottle of wine, and having decided to have the platter for our middle night, can recommend it as a lovely way to finish a busy day of activity in the National Park. Almyra is located about 30 minutes away from the park, and I can honestly say you will not find anything as comfortable and relaxing any closer to it and it formed a perfect place from which to venture into a truly amazing part of the world. It is worth noting though that the beaches within a short walk are also beautiful and Mapua, just a 5 minute drive away is a lovely little town with a collection of restaurants, bars and gift shops. One of things that really made the visit special for us was the help and advice provided by Fiona. She provided lots of ideas while I was planning the trip and booked restaurants and excursions that I would never have been able to find myself, and would have been too late to book once there. Once we arrived we could not have been welcomed in a more friendly way, and nothing was too much trouble, even posting on phone chargers my daughter managed to leave behind. We could have easily spent much longer there and that is our one and only regret of our wonderful time at Almyra. A really great place and cannot recommend it enough.

Had a lovely stay here, it certainly is a nice property done to a very high standard. One of the things I dislike about b&bs is having to be up for breakfast and talking to other guests and your hosts when you might just want peace and quiet, and so I loved the setup at Almyra. The fridge was full of yummy food and we could make and consume our own breakfast at our own pace before heading off for the day. Perfect! The price initially made me balk, but this area of NZ (Mapua) is pretty expensive in general, so we were quite happy in the end with our little 3 day slice of paradise. Yay!

Thank you for your positive review which is much appreciated. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay so much and that it was a very relaxing and enjoyable short interlude/honeymoon after the frantic time you had been having. We do find that many of our guests do enjoy the freedom of being able to make their own breakfasts at a time that works for them - rather than having to get dressed and ready for a breakfast where they may not feel like having to talk to people or be sociable! Our rates do reflect a medium price bracket for this area and we do feel that we offer value for money in such a stunning location, together with the swimming pool (in season of course!) and the most amazing views, together with the privacy and seclusion that Almyra offers and the ability to come and go out via the separate guest entrance and parking area without having to stop and speak to hosts or engage in conversation if one doesnt want to. We hope that you will visit us again one day if you come back to the Nelson area.
