Don’t miss an opportunity to stay at this wonderful place the "Absolutely" unit. The magnificent view alone is enough to make it very special, while the accommodation itself is spacious and light, comfortable and quirky enough to add interest. As well as plenty of indoor space, “Absolutely” has its own private terrace overlooking the amazing view. Everything we needed was already provided, and when we did need something extra, it was supplied promptly and with a smile. Our hosts are charming, friendly and discreet in their attention. We spent eight nights there. I confidently award it ten out of ten and recommend it to you for a wonderful holiday.

Stayed for 2 nights but could easily have stayed for longer. This accommodation has "absouluely" everthing than one could possibly need plus more. Will definitely be back.

Only had two nights here but we so enjoyed the very stylish,spacious and unique accommodation. Stunning to sit on the decking with a glass of wine in the evening. Do be sure to browse around the gallery and look at some very interesting work done by two very talented people.

This gallery is a short distance from town with a great view for those of you who need a place to stay while visiting this town.

The artists have a nice selection of art work available in various sizes as well as unframed ones too.

The larger accommodation that is available has a nice patio with a beautiful view. Enjoyed staying here as it was in a quiet neighborhood and Walter and Brigitte went out of their way to make our stay pleasant.

It was by chance that we went through Walter and Brigitte's gallery while visiting Kaikoura. We purchased an abstract gilded sculpture which was captivating in style, and the quality of the workmanship was brilliant. This was cased into a well made box that accompanied us around the South Island for 5000 km. And when opened back in Napier was in gallery condition.
Since then we have bought another painting, that we liked while visiting the gallery.Walter couried it to us in Napier, and it to arrived in excellent condition.
Walter and Brigitte are a pleasure to deal with and I hope to purchase other works of theirs in the future.
It is my choice not to include any photos of the art to avoid it being copied.
