2 Bedroom - Bay Vista Apartment/Ocean Views

 Beautifully located property in very nice condition. Great views and close to shops. The availability of a secure car park just outside the main entrance was much appreciated. We would happily stay there again. 

Spacious House.Secluded yet close to everything.

 We absolutely love staying in this property . It has a large living area and happily sleeps 8 people . It is very central to havelock North and because its down a drive is very quite and peaceful. I can not recommend it highly enough .
