What Past Guests Are Saying
A quality place to stay
We had a wonderful three night stay here - four of us shared two bedrooms with a kitchen lounge between. Great place to stay - very clean, good rooms, very comfortable beds, good views. We loved having a swimming pool - few lodges seem to have them. Fiona and Ron are very hospitable hosts and good at recommending activities and restaurants. We preferred it to staying in Nelson because it is much closer to Tasman National Park. This was one of several lodges we stayed in on out trip and was one of the best
Response from Fiona & Ron - 02/05/2013

A highlight of our NZ trip
We spent three wonderful days at almyra where our hosts, Ron and Fiona, did everything to make our stay as relaxed as possible. Almyra is a wonderful location, beautiful architecture in a spectacular setting, pool, great views, long walks at the nearby beach. The apartment is tastefully furnished and very comfortable. Almyra was certainly one of the highlights of our NZ trip and we greatly enjoyed our time at this wonderful place.

A wonderful area of South Island
Almyra was in an excellent position with wonderful views, peaceful and tranquil. The surrounding coastal area, Abel Tasman, is just wonderful with very easy taxi service to get around the beautiful bays. The accommodation at Almyra is very comfortable with everything you could possible need and Ron and Fiona are thoughtful and attentive hosts. We have many fond memories and it was one of the highlights of our tour of NZ.
we've had the most beautiful stay at this place, marvellous view,hosts and a stunning appartement-what more do you expect?
The place is perfect for a lot of outdoor experiences, especially Tasman National Park offers a great variety.
You'll enjoy the peace and quiet and the luxuary place!!
We loved this stay!
The home and the service was grandiose. The location is very beautiful, a view over the water to the mountain. Theres was a nice terrace, where we made barbecue.

Our 2 nights at Almyra at Kina were by far one of the best memories we'll keep from our honeymoon in NZ. The room was really well-designed, everything was thought of for us to have a wonderful stay! The view on the peninsula was really nice and the situation very pleasant!
Fiona and Ron were great and friendly hosts, attentive to every detail!

Hospitality, fantastic flat and a great view
Hi Fiona and Ron,
unfortunately we are back home in Germany. Here is May but nobody knows it, due to the wheather we have. Daily rain and only about ten degrees. But we had a save and scheduled flight back.
So to our stay in Almyra. It was a perfect stay. What a view from bed in the morning via the lagune while the sunrise in your high quality and comfortable flat. Everything was totally professional.
New Zealand was in addition one of the best countries I have been ever. What a magnificant environment.
We hope to have the choice in the future to meet you again to have further nice days with you in your suitable home.
A very kindly hello and thank again to you.

Luxurious comfort with stunning views
Recently we spent two memorable days and nights at Almyra at Kina. We recived very a warm welcome from Fiona and Ron and were most comfortable in a very well appointed apartment from which we had stunning views over the estuary. I would not hesitate to recommend Almyra at Kina to any of our friends, especially those from Australia.

A piece of paradise
A very relaxing experience having all the facilities that were required. Nothing was to much trouble. The home had a very comfortable interior with plenty of space to relax or take a swim outside.The location was perfect, beautiful views and fantastic sunsets.The house was within a short drive to a number of beaches, shops and restaurants. The Abel Taman and other sights were an hour or two away. I liked everything about this property, there really was nothing to complain about.

Casual luxury in a great location.
We stayed for a week and enjoyed our time immensely to the degree that we spent a lot of time just enjoying the accommodation, the views, and relaxing. Fiona and Ron are great hosts, we felt very welcome, and even had the chance to "dog sit" one evening - very special.
The accommodation is excellent quality and Fiona has taken special care and thought it out well, with the best facilities to meet the needs of the guests.
The surrounding countryside offers everything for a great holiday - crafts, art, great seasonal fruit and vegies, excellent eateries and coffee stops.
Best - the ever changing views across the lagoon; the feeling of being on your own, but close to everything; Fiona and Ron.
Worst - Having to say goodbye.
We really loved Almyra, very comfortable, beautiful situation and good area to explore. The accommodation is excellent and the use of the pool is a real bonus

Relaxing,modern self contained apartment with wonderful views
We spent a wonderful week at Almyra where our hosts Fiona & Ron did all they
could to make our stay special. The apartment was nicely furnished, well
equipped and from the patio that overlooked their large garden the views to
the ocean inlet and to the hills beyond were spectacular. The location is very
convenient for touring the Tasman and is less than an hour drive from Nelson.
It is also only a short walk to the beach. We recommend it highly and will
certainly stay there again on our next visit.
Friendly, welcoming hosts.
Gorgeous home, fantastic bedroom and bathroom facilities.
Fantastic location, close to Nelson, Motueka and Kaiteriteri.
Loved the views over the Tasman estuary.

A delightful place to stay. Quiet and modern. Great views of the beach and lovely walks.
Fiona and Ron are very friendly people who make you feel very welcome.
I highly recommend Almyra at Kina.
Fantastic long weekend break away
Beautiful views and lovely modern comfortable accommodation. Well stocked
fridge and kitchen. Lovely big, well maintained pool. Very quiet, our hosts were
friendly, helpful, yet unobtrusive.
Great location close to Mapua, Kaiteriteri and Golden Bay.
Palmerston North, New Zealand
Beautiful, romantic hideaway.
• The view is really lovely.
• The hosts friendly and accommodating but not overbearing.
• Access to the main house swimming pool is a huge bonus in summer.
• The accommodation is very modern, stylish and has two awesome decks to
use. The kitchen is a mini-kitchen (stove top but no oven) but there is a
great little barbecue on the deck near the kitchen. We glazed a little
Christmas ham in the bbq and it came out great. The bedroom is excellent
and has huge windows to take in the view. Nice modern bathroom.
• Beach about 3 minutes walk away.
Only thing I would change is to have lounge chairs on one of the decks rather
than both decks having upright seated furniture. It would have been nice to
lay back and really relax on the deck on a lounger chair.
Otherwise a wonderful stay... the best stay of our 10 day South Island driving
