This is the only stand alone ABSOLUTE BEACHFRONT, self contained studio in the immediate area metres from the high tide on the Ruby Coast. Enjoy the peaceful ambience of our beach and unobstructed views of the Nelson lights, D'Urville Island, Rabbit Island, the Kina Cliffs and up the coast to the Abel Tasman National Park. The bonus is you can swim or fish from the front door virtually and as the tide starts to lower start a beach walk to the Mapua wharf and village or the Ruby Bay bluffs. Great for couples wanting a special location, close to local restaurants, vineyards, galleries, cycle tracks and more.Use our bikes to peddle the all new cycleways or hop in the double kayak available and explore the lovely sanctuary of the Waimea Estuary or just go for a fish or paddle out in the bay. BBQ, fridge, double gas burner, microwave and all you need to relax and self cater.
NB: We have updated the kitchen and made the area more spacious for those who have enjoyed RUBY BAY WATERFRONT previously.

Thank you Tina and John (not forgetting Madge) for a really enjoyable stay in your studio. It was well equipped, clean, comfortable and the location was superb. Thanks also for your suggestions on walks and days out.

What a great spot! fab views, great accommodation, every we needed and Tina and John (and Madge x) made us feel very welcome.
We can't recommend this place enough -so close to Golden Bay and Nelson. You will need to stay for more than one night here...then you won't want to leave.

We had a fantastic stay at Ruby Bay. The little unit was perfect for me, my husband and our dog. It was so close to the sea with beautiful views and great walks. In between Nelson and Kaiteriteri so easy drive to both. Bbq available too for food with a view! Would definitely stay again.

Thank you Tina and John for the most fabulous weekend. The studio was just perfect for a relaxing weekend away, and is so close to the beach we really didn't want to leave. Listening to the sea at night right outside the door was just heaven. the use of the kayaks and the bikes added to the comfort and ease of the studio. We will definitely be back and have recommended this studio to anyone who wants to stay in the region. Thanks once again.

Just want to thank you for THE MOST AMAZING stay in your wee studio. We had a fantastic time and would have loved to stay another night. WOW...wow we really can’t get over how – absolutely WATERFRONT it is!! Going to sleep at night listening to the pounding surf and waking up to utter silence (as the tide was out) taking that early morning walk on the HUGE expanse of beach, then watching the speed of the incoming tide. The vast vista of ocean, sky and sand is awesome and overwhelming...... we loved just sitting and watching it all change before our eyes!! WE WILL BE BACK ..... needless to say we are also telling everyone about your fabulous wee pad.
We found access to the beach quite easy and our wee dog, Purdey, thought she was in heaven!!

There needs to be rocks for erosion control. This is the first time a difficulty has been found accessing the beach via the rocks. We do it daily as do many who visit us via the beach.
My dog and I have just returned from a wonderful holiday staying here. The studio is well appointed and literally at the edge of the seawall at Ruby Bay. Going to sleep each night with the rhythm of the waves was a joy, as was the relative solitude of the beach. These owners should be congratulated on offering dog-friendly accommodation; it was very hard to find a quality place to stay with my dog. The only 'downside' is that the sea wall prevents direct beach access because of the large rocks (unless you are willing to take the risk). A short walk down the road and there is a public access point, however. Recommended and I hope we can return some day!

Alex and I had a wonderful time here. Tina and John were great hosts and we loved being so close ot the sea with wonderful sunsets and excellent swimming too. There's lots to do and see close by; around Tasman and Mapua and beyond. ;-)

Lovely spot and great hosts. Recommended to anyone looking for a nice cosy place to spend some quiet time. They are dog friendly and our dog, Lucy, had a wonderful time with us!
