I hardly dare to review this, in case it gets too popular!
Absolute Beach is a new, small, apartment block on the beach road at Tahunanui. Although the road is busy, I did not hear any traffic noise through the double glazing, and it is the only obstacle between your apartment and the beach, so it did not worry me at all.
The sea view is amazing, especially at dusk, and the beach is large and safe for swimmimg.
Ann and her son have created (in my view) a perfect place to stay. The decor is fantastic, attention to detail astonishing and it's all spotless. On top of this, there is parking, easy car access to Nelson and the airport is 5 minutes drive away!
I had a downstairs double room, with a sea view and shared deck. The bed was so comfy, the bathroom gorgeoues. I could go on and on...
Ann and her partner, Alan, are the perfect hosts. You can have breakfast in their area upstairs, or in your room, but I suggest upstairs so you can spend some time with Ann - she's great and a real character. Her years in the hotel industry are interesting to hear about and she really knows how to look after people. My breakfast was lovely and she went the extra mile with any requests I had.
Stay here, especially if you are on your own, or in a couple, and you will not regret it.
I wish I could live there permanently!
