A stunning aspect, handy to everything, by car or walking. The views were remarkable. There is quite a lot of road noise, but to be expected, it didnt disturb sleep. The dining chairs need to be replaced as soon as possible the vinyl is all cracked and split and a couple of the chairs are actually unsafe to sit on. A very comfortable apartment, but a bit tired. Would I stay again, at that price only if the furniture was fixed up and the curtains rehung.

The view was beautiful and the living area was spacious. The second bed room was an unusual shape making it small for two single beds. All of the beds were very hard. They urgently need to replace the mattresses or at the very least get toppers.

Very convenient location for tavel in the area and adjacent eateries, walks also every secure. Housekeeping more frequent, only once in days! The apartment was a good size, well appointed and the bed comfortable. The carpets had multiple stains/marks and curtains were not completely attached to th rails, worked ok but not a good look, for the room rate. Overall, a good location and stay

Beautiful apartments in a fantastic location

Turned up after 6pm to be greeted by Neville at reception. We were allocated a beautiful well equipped spacious apartment overlooking Tahunanui beach. Very conveniently located to cafes and restaurants. Thank you Neville for a great stay.
