2 Bedroom Fully Furnished Waterfront Apartment

 Great 2 story apartment - very comfortable and well appointed, although the internet connection was a little slow and spotty at times. 

Stylish waterfront getaway for couples or families

 An excellent experience in every respect. The location is very special and the standard of accommodation met our expectations entirely. Thank you

 A super property exactly as described, well appointed in a great location that makes easy access to all that the Bay has to offer. Great host and highly recommend. We have already rebooked for next year 

Quiet Napier Retreat

 We originally chose to stay here because of its proximity to The Old Church and were very impressed with how well set up and family friendly it was. We would definitely stay here again.
