Beach Front on the Reserve Upper unit

 Awesome place, so relaxing which was just what we needed. Nice sheltered bay. A couple of kyaks in the garage would be great. Would definitely use again.

Beach Front on the Reserve Upper unit

 Great apartment, in a very quiet and peaceful with a beautiful view. Apartment was very modern and comfortable, I would highly recommend 


 Property pros: well-presented. Great spa. Not as far down as the 309 as feared! Close to Waiau Falls and actually a few things within walking distance. Very airy. Plenty of cutlery and kitchen gear. Driveway is a challenge, but so is the rest of the area driving-wise.

Poppy Apartments, 2 apartments with stunning views

 This property is amazing, unparalleled views, beautiful rooms, its just a pity there was so much rain from the cyclone! If I were to come back to Auckland I would definitely stay at this property again. LOVELY.
