About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

Character-filled and spacious, a self-contained holiday apartment on the ground level of a large house on Ruby Bay. Absolute waterfront on swimming beach. Two bedrooms, enormous open-plan kitchen/dining/living room, one bathroom, separate entrance, own courtyard. High pitched roof with skylight so it feels more like a house than an apartment. Set in half a hectare of park-like grounds, with lots of off-street parking. Double kayak, pookl table, croquet and barbecue. An ideal spot for trips to sunny Nelson, Kaiteriteri, Abel Tasman National Park and Golden Bay. Close to Mapua village shops and cafes. Handy for touring Moutere wineries and galleries. Situated on Tasman's Great Taste Cycle Trail. Plus, fish-and-chips at the gate if you don't want to cook!

Special conditions:

This two-bedroom apartment is available at a special discounted rate if rented by just one couple: $185 per night instead of the usual $235 for two couples. Pets welcome by arrangement.

Extras: Linen (included); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave;

Not much we liked at all.

Not much we liked at all. We didn't know the owners would be living above us and you could hear them moving around along with guests in the unit next door. Lost of garden but no real privacy. Even your courtyard is open to other guests and the owner walking past. Very little lighting. No light at all in the courtyard for being outside at night to gt away from the heat. Just lucky it was only between 20-25 or we would have cooked as the sun beat on the roof made it like a sauna/glasshouse.

Owner's Response: We have been letting our apartments to satisfied guests for 11 years. None of our advertising has ever suggested water views. Guests' happiness is vital to us. Our living area is set forward on poles, so ground-floor rooms have a high stud and private, yes, private courtyards. In record El Nino heat, fans are supplied, and guests have the option of the barbecue and dining area (well-lit!) under the deck on the cooler seaward side. If extra lighting was wanted, these guests had only to ask.
