Ahuriri Townhouse modern and spacious ,free wifi.

 Very nice place. Roomy and clean and tidy. Has everything and close to shops. Thanks very much had a great time. Hopefully will be back. 

New 5 bed Penthouse including secure parking+Wifi

 Very spacious accommodation with all the bells and whistles you require for a great stay away from home. Close to waterfront, shopping and great cafes & restaurants. Views of the sunrise & sunsets from deck of a morning and again at night are fantastic. 

Historic Colenso Cottage

 It considerably exceeded our expectations. The building is of historic significance, but completely updated inside. The rooms are immaculate, beautifully decorated, generous in size and very well appointed. Comfortable bed with good linen. Very quiet and private, with completely private courtyard The location is great and close to Central Napier. We would never stay anywhere else in Napier now! 

Rural retreat 5 mins from Havelock North village

 The location was very close to Havelock North and it is easy to drive to Te Mata Park where there is stunning scenery. Just brilliant. 

New 5 bed Penthouse including secure parking+Wifi

 The apartment was amazing . so close to the centre of Napier and had the most amazing views. The layout suited us as there were four of us ladies from the same family , with ages ranging from 23 to 81 years. The apartment was very clean and tidy and the beds comfortable I would recommend the apartment to anyone
