    Located a bit off the beaten path near a car dealership, but close to grocery store, etc, as long as you have a car. A Gem of Comfort 2 is much nicer than A Gem of Comfort (they are on the same property). Only thing that was missing was some basics like a dish cloth, and the fridge was empty - would've been nice if there were condiments, etc though maybe that's not allowed in NZ.

    The location was nice for our party of 7 on our last evening before flying home. It's close to the airport and main highway, while still private and quiet. It would be nice to have more same-sized cereal bowls and other kitchen items.
