A one-night stay. 3 bed apartment was spacious and met our needs. Only issue was with air-con! Late check-out for $45 was really appreciated. Allowed us to make good use of the pool on the last day. Struggled to find breakfast locally - surfclub wasnt serving this weekend. Id stay again :)

Glad you had a good stay. The late check out option is very handy when available and great for guests wanting to extend their stay but not stay another night. Thanks for your feedback and hope to see you next time for a longer stay :)

Visited with friends in early October 2016 & stayed in a 3 bedroomed, ground floor apartment. Each apartment has a parking space allocated with lots of room on the street if need be. The accomodation was a little tired but all in all, clean, satisfactory & well equipped with dishwasher, microwave, oven etc & all the essentials. Ideally located on...

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Not sure if you booked direct with us but its always a good idea to give us a call and we can send photos of apartments that are available.

Thank you for great feedback. Whilst we have some higher apartments that have lovely views you can't beat a ground floor apartment when you have children. You don't have to worry about them going up and down in lifts as they can walk straight out the back door to everything they need. So glad you enjoyed your stay :) It's...

Easy underground parking with choice of elevator or stairs. CONs: Bedroom was not dark enough at night as shutters did not block enough light. Cigarette smoke from other...

Thanks for your feedback Cate. I think you might have stayed in S11 which is a lovely apartment. The plantation shutters in the bedroom probably do keep the bedrooms a bit lighter. All of our apartments have different décor some with blinds and others with block out curtains. Something to think about when next you book. I think you'll agree...

This was our 4th stay and feels like we're returning home. Faultless accommodation. On-site managers and their staff a credit to the complex. We are now "recognised" and are welcomed back each time. Well worth paying extra for a second bedroom and bathroom. Luxury to have fidget/snore free sleep! What a way to escape some of the winter in Northland,...

We stayed for 8 days and really enjoyed our stay.
