The property at almyra is absolutely stunning. Our favorite moments were accompanied by a bottle of wine and a breathtaking sunset overlooking the bay.

Fiona is an incredible accomodating host who caters to her guests' needs and plans. We were provided with a stocked fridged for breakfast with fresh organic ingredients and were given great restaurant recommendations. Highly recommend this high end B&B!

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.

Room Tip: Kina Suite for couples and solos Kina and Tasman for families and two couples.

Being a frequent visitor to Upper Montere area near Nelson, we sought a new location to stay and were attracted to Almyra because of its location - convenient to Motueka, Richmond and Nelson. While the amenities of being served meals was available, we chose not to as we were visiting friends almost every evening.

But, coming back to Almyra was like coming home... despite an excess of rain in the week we were there. A peaceful vista overlooking the water ... a hot shower ... a comfortable king-size bed ... and the amenities of a modest kitchen that offered us the basics we needed.

Owners Fiona and Ron were happy to share their knowledge of the area. The staff was always there to help with the 'little things.'

Would we go back? In a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Almyra has only two suites. Both are equally appealing. At the end of the day, it comes down to the kind of accommodation one wants.

Expect a genuinely warm welcome from owners Fiona & Ron. We loved the rural location among fruit farms and vineyards with easy access to Nelson city and airport, the Moutere wineries, Kaiteriteri for access to Abel-Tasman and Mapua Wharf for waterfront restaurants and bike hire. Our favourite trip was to the estuary village of Marahau, strolling along empty beaches, eating at "Hooked", and walking (you could kayak) to split-apple rock beach.

The guest wing of their beautiful modern property has it's own entrance, private decks with furniture, and access to the extensive landscaped grounds. The garden is home to a great variety of birds - bring binoculars. Views extend westwards across a tidal lagoon, as far as snow-capped mountains. We stayed in the Kina suite, including a luxurious shower room, large double bedroom with extremely comfortable bed, leather recliner and excellent views through huge windows. The open plan sitting/dining/kitchen room has leather sofas, microwave, hotplates, fridge etc, and is fully equipped for cooking. A welcome grocery pack included eggs, milk, bread, cereals, fruit, butter, jams etc. Additional supplies are available at nearby country stores and supermarkets.

There is access to the family swimming pool and (at small extra charge) laundry facilities.

I suggest you contact the owners directly, to discuss your accommodation options.

A very scenic 4-hour drive took us across the mountains to the west coast, for the next stage of our trip.

We stayed in the Kina suite, which was decorated to the highest of standards, with the finest of furnishings and fittings.
This trip was a long time in the making and Fiona has made emailing the organising a pleasure, with her efficient friendliness.
We ordered the most amazing gourmet platter, which put all our taste buds into overdrive, wonderful.
We were welcomed like old friends, and hope that we can now remain so.
The views and the location are just superb, I cannot rate this property or its owners highly enough.
