Stunning property in an amazing location! Excellent accommodation for two couples. We had a really relaxing stay. Great location for Abel Tasman national park. And not too far from wine country! Thoroughly recommend it.

If I consider all the properties I love spending time at in New Zealand all but one has handed the reins on to a new owner. Only one of those properties radically altered its proposition and I no longer visit it. Mel and Richard Hunt, the new owners of Almyra have very sensibly decided that if Almyra isn't broke don't fix it. Beautiful clean lines inside immaculately kept gardens and a wonderfully maintained swimming pool means “the more it changes, the more it's the same thing” and one can, therefore, soak up the stunning views to Mount Arthur across the estuary and walk the deserted beaches of the coast digging deeper into the area without distraction or disconnection. On a purely practical level, the Kitchen Inventory has been given a slight spring clean and I really loved using the brand new Broil King a super-efficient Bar Be Que as well as listening to my music through a new Bluetooth speaker which allows your music to bloom without intruding. Almyra not only has commanding views but because it is set in substantial grounds and was purpose-built to provide separate self-contained guest accommodation the suite has that all-important sense of discrete privacy. That added to the "location, location location" is what makes it so special and of course, one thing hasn't changed a jot the area itself which is teeming with hiking trails, stunning coastline, extraordinarily beautiful national parks, wineries and is populated by this countries trump card the Kiwis a nicer nation you could not wish to meet. I will be returning again for a seventh visit in the knowledge that all is well in Paradise and that I am twice blessed with hosts who are as special as the location.

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.
