Absolute waterfront in the heart of Ruby Bay, on cycling's Great Taste Trail. The apartment is big and self-contained, and feels like a private, stand-alone house, with its own entrance on the seaward side, lots of light, high stud, and private courtyard. Garden views. It's on the ground level of a large house, the upper part of which is set forward on poles. Enjoy nearly half a hectare of sheltered lawns and garden, metres from high-tide on a swimming beach.

The apartment has two bedrooms (one queen, one double) with built-ins, and a huge open-plan skylit kitchen-dining-living room. One of the sofas here makes into a sofabed which can accommodate extra guests.

Quality linen and interesting art and design throughout. BBQ, double kayak, laundry. Gourmet takeaway at gate and 3km drive or low-tide beach walk to Mapua's shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants.

Special amenities:

On The Beach at Ruby Bay is in the middle of ever-changing Tasman Bay. Facing north-east, it makes for front-row viewing from sunrise till moonrise. Accommodation is casual and self-contained, set in 0.4 hectare grounds, absolute waterfront. Minutes from all the activity of Mapua. Walk a few steps up the path to enjoy the long sweep of Ruby Bay's stony-sandy beach with 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. The garden beside the apartment is perfect for lazing under the silk tree, barbequing and eating out, playing croquet. And, if it's windy, it's sheltered too. And, heavens forbid, if it should rain during your stay, there's a huge under cover area on the seaward side with dining table and chairs, etc.

A lovely two night stay at 'On the Beach' in Ruby Bay. Lots of natural light made the living area feel open and spacious. The beach is a short stroll away and it is an easy walk to Mapua village. We were very grateful for the return of a phone charger that we had left. Thanks for a lovely stay.

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!

Nearby attractions & activities

Private and relaxed, in the heart of the tranquil Ruby Coast Scenic Route, and on the Great Taste Trail for cycling, 3 km to Mapua boat ramp, restaurants, cafes and shops (enjoy the low-tide beach walk), a pleasant walk to our local fruit and veg co-op. Close to Motueka, Richmond, Kaiteriteri, Abel Tasman National Park and the Moutere. Fast drive to Nelson, day trip to Marlborough or Golden Bay. Swimming, kayaking, fishing, lazing, walking, markets, galleries, acclaimed wineries.
