“A delightful apartment!”
Reviewed 26 September 2011

I recently spent a short break in Havelock North. When I found the Village Apartment on the internet it seemed like the ideal place to stay, and I was not disappointed. This apartment is beautifully appointed with all possible mod-cons and high quality furnishings and linens. The location is ideal - just a short walk to the village - but it is also quiet and private. Perfect!
Thank you Karen and Rex.

We were so impressed with this lovely apartment. It was so comfortable with modern furnishings, quality linen, towels and impeccably clean. We have a 3 month old, so we were concerned about it being too cold, but we found it toasty and warm. It is the ideal location, just a short walk to the village cafes and perfect base to explore the gorgeous vineyards. Thanks Rex and Karen, we will be sure to stay at your apartment next time we visit the Hawkes Bay, what a pleasure!!

Spacious and well equipped apartment with all the utilities provided, including free wi-fi. Peaceful surroundings yet close to all the shops and restaurants in Havelock North and ideally located to explore the Hawkes Bay region.
It compares favourably with the best self-catering properties we have rented in Europe.

Rex and Karen were lovely hosts - left us alone after welcoming us - but the apartment was so tastefully fitted out - we couldn't ask for more. To top it off the local supermarket is just over the road and all the bars and restaurants are with in an easy walk. A wonderful short stay and I would highly recommend it to other couples.

Great accomodations: Centrally located, private, contemporary design, full kitchen, en-suite laundry and super fast, secure, FREE internet connection. Whether a business trip or on holiday, this spacious apartment has all of the conveniences of a hotel but ALL of the comfort and amenities (like laundry) of home.

Karen and Rex are great hosts -- although because of the orientation of the apartment, I was barely aware that the apartment was adjacent to their home. Very private space - and private, covered parking is available right outside the door.

Location is more central than any ot the other lodging properties in Havelock North -- less than a 2 minute walk door-to-door to either the local full-service gorcery store, bus stop, restauarants, shopping, or pubs. And Havelock North is easy to get around both on foot or by car. There is also bus service to Hastings and Napier (and connections to locations farther afield available from both Hastings and Napier).

While local lodging properties offer a partial kitchen (2 burner "hob" aka stove top and microwave), this property has a spacious full kitchen with 4 burner stove, oven, microwave, coffeemaker, electric teapot, toaster, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher and a full complement of contemporary cookware and dinnerware.

Large-screen LCD TV with both local & SkyTV, as well as DVD comes with easy-to-use instructions. Internet connection is FREE, secure (password protected, but password provided to guests) and FAST. No problem using it for Skype and internet phone,

Washer and dryer located within the apartment itself, along with an ironing board, iron and hair dryer. Modern bathroom with shower (great water pressure in the shower).

While the apartment was ideal for my two-week stay (hotels can get very small during an extended stay), it would make a great homebase for a short stay to explore the many wineries and restaurants of the Havelock North/Hastings area.

It was such a wonderful experience and infinitely better than staying in a motel. It had all the conveniences of home away from home. We appreciated the personal contact with Rex.

Totally self contained, warm, comfortable, clean, great instructions for appliances, fully equipped kitchen, thermo oven and gas hobs - perfect place for an escape for couples. Two minutes walk to Countdown, cafes and fantastic Havelock Village which has the amazing deli called Bellatino......
