We were a group of three couples that stayed here for five days. The two-storey apartment was tidy, well presented, modern features and the added bonus of having all the amenities and comfort you'd usually enjoy from your own home. The fully functioning kitchen has everything you need, (also basic cooking ingredients + tea/coffee/hot chocolate/sugar etc were already supplied!) Plus the supermarket is only a short drive or 15min walk, which means you don't have to eat out every meal - very convenient, especially for family groups!
The three bedrooms were nice, comfortable, and each fitted with queen/double beds, mirrors, wardrobes - perfect for what we needed. A high standard of bedding/linen was provided, and very clean. Both bathrooms we're modern and had toilets and showers. The laundry & dryer also came in handy.
The apartment was in a handy location to where we needed to be. Neighbours are all polite, respectful, and very quiet, making our stay very peaceful. Set across the road from Mt Eden Reserve, which has great walking/running routes that seem quite popular among locals. The summit also provides excellent views. There are various shopping centres and quality eateries close-by. Our group found the easiest way to get around was using the public transport system, which is literally at your finger tips. The bus stop is right outside, train station not far, and most convenient - Uber - which was the cheapest and most efficient. If you're feeling brave, the Lime E-scooter is a fun way to ride around and they're not hard to find either! Mt Eden area is quite hilly - similar to Wellington - so a decent set of comfortable footwear is required if you're walking frequently, as your legs will no doubt be getting a workout.
Would recommend this place to anyone! Whether you're a couple looking to getaway, or a family or group looking for something different, this property has it. Leah (the owner) was easy to deal with, very friendly, transparent and communicated in a timely fashion, making the whole process of this booking from start to finish very straightforward and easy going. We will definitely consider using this property again in the future. Thank you!
