Palm Garden Apartment- private and secluded

 The property is in excellent order, is spacious and very comfortable. The welcome hamper was a lovely surprise and a very kind thought . In fact the owners had thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable. Advice was offered on transport as we had chosen to be without a car in St Helier and on local amenities.The whole property is very well equipped and a short walk to the beach, village and bus stop.We liked everything about both the property, location and delightful owners.

Character apartment in the heart of Mission Bay

 Property was perfectly situated close to the beach and 2 minutes walk from restaurants, bars and transport links. Definitely stay again. 

Mission In The Bay -   Free Hot Spa !

 Lovely spot. Nice tidy rooms and very close to the beach. We had a great time! Thanks! 

Attractive character inner-city townhouse

 By now we are back home in he Netherlands, but in our mind we are still in NZ! We very much enjoyed our time at 51A Napier Street . The house was well appointed and very clean on arrival,both times! The beds were very good and cosy couches in the living room. Excellent shower too and a fully equipped kitchen. Very good location between Ponsonby, Victoria Park and the CBD. Just two minutes to the supermarket. Hope to return there on our next visit. Thanks!!! :-)

 The retro feel, and how close it was to Restaurants at Mission Bay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
