    Outstanding location and amenities (all the things you need (great shower, bed and quiet .... and more) - immaculate and every little thing catered for. Would highly recommend this place - its far enough out of Wellington to feel relaxed and chilled and yet easy to get places. The tuis in the bush were the cream on the cake! Thanks for a great stay - hope to return soon.

  • Only one word - superb

    Only one word - superb. The weather was not too friendly but it was warm and very well appointed. For those with a vehicle the location is fine.

    The apartment was very clean and contained all you will need for a self catered stay. The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom is great. We loved the back deck and the views of the bush.
