"Champagne Quality On A Beer Budget" Relax and chill out here over summer. The apartment is sunny, immaculate and is a very tranquil location to enjoy while here on holiday. It's fully furnished, newly renovated a year ago with all the mod cons and great indoor outdoor living plus BBQ. All appliances are near new, new carpet, and decorated to a high standard. New linen, towels, cutlery, crockery, cooking utensils etc. provided. We have been told by our guests that they are very pleasantly surprised when they get here, as it looks smaller in the photos, but happy to see it has a lot more space and the rooms are of a great size. You will have your own parking space down the driveway and in the carport. Close to cafes, restaurants/bars, airport and the beach. This would suit a couple/2 couples or family with 2 children. Ideal for a romantic retreat for newly weds. I am the owner of the property and live upstairs above the apartment with my partner. I have my children stay here every 2nd week, they are 7, 11 and 13. When we have guests staying we will be very respectful and as quiet as possible however there will be muffled traffic noise. We are both well travelled, I (Vaughan) have been in the advertising industry for the last 25 years and my partner Tracy has been in the holiday accommodation industry for the last 10 years and was a wedding and conference coordinator. We are excited to host you and our aim is to give you the best experience while you are here in Tauranga.

Special conditions: No pets allowed, no smoking inside however you can smoke outside(smoking butt box provided outside). Please respect our property. There are neighbours close by and we do not want to annoy them with loud noise, especially at night. Suitable for 1 or 2 couples, or a small family with 2 children.
