Absolute waterfront in the heart of Ruby Bay. Two roomy self-contained apartments on ground level of a big house set in half a hectare of sheltered lawn and garden, metres from high-tide on a swimming beach.

Each apartment feels like a private, stand-alone house, with its own entrance, lots of light, high stud, and glass doors to separate walled courtyards.

One has two bedrooms (one queen, one double) with built-ins, and there is a very large open-plan skylit kitchen-dining-living room. One of the sofas here makes into a sofabed.

The other apartment has a huge bedroom, with kingsize bed plus single and built-ins, and kitchen/lounge/dining.

Quality linen and interesting art and design throughout. Shared BBQ, double kayak, laundry. Takeaway at gate and 3km drive or low-tide beach walk to Mapua shops, bars and restaurants.

Special amenities:
Ruby Bay is in the middle of ever-changing Tasman Bay facing north-east. Front-row viewing for moonrise and sunrise. Accommodation is casual and private, set in 0.4 hectare grounds, absolute waterfront. Minutes from all the activity of Mapua. The long sweep of Ruby Bay's stony-sandy beach has views from Moutere Bluffs to D'Urville Island to French Pass to Nelson city to Rabbit Island and Mapua Inlet. Lovely swimming at high tide and lovely wandering at any tide.

Nice location - felt a bit more like a B&B (without the b'fast) as the owners also live onsite.

Kids loved having access to the beach and the extensive grounds

Very peaceful and comfortable king-bed suite, with separate living & kitchen area. Good sized fridge, small gas stove, all necessary cooking equipment. The beach is a 2 minute stroll up and over the bank, good walks & fossicking at mid-to-low tide, best for swimming around high tide. Good starting place for Abel Tasman day trips, or even for Golden Bay & Farewell Spit day trips. In the heart of the Moutere wine district, many nice eateries in easy distance. Friendly and helpful hosts Carol and Kester made us feel welcome. Would stay again!
