Wallace Apartment - Herne Bay

 Geoff and I love staying here. Di and Buzz are brilliant to deal with. It is a home away from home. Veryhandy to all amenities. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. Thank you so much. 

Perfect, sunny haven - close to St Heliers beach

 This place was perfect for us. It was ideally located for us to catch up with old friends and stroll around the incredible area around St Heliers. We couldn't find fault with the property, which had everything we needed, and was the perfect size for our family to relax in. We wish we could have stayed longer.

 Fantastic! Can't wait to find another free weekend to stay! 

Postmodern luxury apartment with stunning views

 The location is fantastic, for shopping, cafes bars and the general CBD, if you're up for a walk through K road to Ponsonby it is only 20 minutes with lots of shops to look at on the way.
