This was my third visit to the property, which itself speaks volumes. It is as others have remarked, high quality, discrete, purpose built accommodation, set in a stunning location with far reaching views to the hills across the estuary and THAT swimming pool. In a broader sense the location is ideal, 8 minutes from Motueka (a neat real little town with interesting eateries and all your shopping needs ), the walk along the breath taking and tranquil Kina Beach literally a few hundred yards away and Almyra is within easy reach of the Able Tasman national park, a tramper's paradise, finally Nelson is just 40 minutes away.
I travel solo and look after myself and nine of my evening meals were made in the kitchen of the Kina Suite, but couples traveling together or a family could buy the additional room as well, not feel cramped, and use the Kina Suite as their cooking hub.
Ron and Fiona are the ideal hosts for me (the good neighbour) unobtrusive but always ready to respond if necessary.
All of that is a given, but for me it has to come at the right price and after five years of visiting New Zealand I am happy that its a great offer in every sense of the word which is why I have already booked my return visit with the longest ever duration.
