I chose this property for location and cost as there were 4 of us travelling and weren't disappointed by either. I was annoyed by the owners tirade of abuse towards Aucklander's within 30 seconds of my arrival and finding out that's where we were from. More disappointingly was when i checked out after one night to be asked "which one...

I cant comment on the abuse about Aucklanders, as we came from there ourselves, and have no idea what you mean. We are sorry if you took offense to our question, regarding the fire door damage.But as Building Managers we are well within our rights, to find out if we can, who damaged the door.The fire door is Regulated by...

This is a very modern, well equipped block of apartments in a quite beautiful spot. The apartments have every modern convenience - including a fully equipped kitchen (and I mean "fully"). the staff are really excellent but unfortunately the wifi was down whilst we were there and with no phone signal, we had to rely on trips to the library...

Yes, it's a nice location etc. etc. but our stay was spoiled by the management the next morning. On the way out I made a couple of helpful suggestions (pleasantly), boy was that a mistake. Got told several times that these are apartments, not hotels. Ok, well for $500 a night for a three bedroom "apartment" I would expect a...

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a fantastic stay. The managers are lovely people and go out of there way to help you with anything.

We are from Orewa, NZ. Spent 3 nights with son and new daughter in law while they were in NZ, on holiday from London. Great apartment, central location, all mod cons. Building site managers very professional and particularly enjoyed the swimming pool. Highly recommended.

the apartment was immaculate however at $300 plus dollars for the night I expect air conditioning and fly wire. We were eaten to death by Mosquitos and keep up all night by a show on at the local pub. To make matters worst, you are expected to pay for the Internet.

I would give it 5 stars if it had air-con but it was way too hot so I couldn't sleep,even with the windows open because it was noisy outside. Also the bed I was expecting to be queen was actually a double. Overall it's in an excellent location and the views were great. I loved the swimming pool. The gym...

This was our second time staying in the 3 bedroom penthouse apartment. Perfect location and view, the apartment had everything we could need. (The only criticism would be they could have better quality toilet paper).

I do hate writing negative reviews as this property is rather nice in Whitianga. However it's close proximity to town was a major downfall if staying during peak season as you just cannot sleep due to noise of band music and drunk people outside shouting until 2pm. Every Night!! Due to weather being so humid in summer I found it...

Huge, clean, well appointed and just what we needed. My parents and I had spent 6 days travelling around NZ north island, eating out every night and this was the perfect spot for a night in. The facilities were just as good as you'd have at home and the 2 locally situated supermarkets were super convenient for supplies. Area closes...

“Ask the managers if they are aware of any smokers in any of the apartments...and if so ask for "the other side".”

“Our view of the pool was very pretty, but I think a harbour view would be even more attractive, and possibly somewhat quieter.”
