The room was super cost with... More

Wanted a lovely quiet place for Christmas this year and after searching came up with Absolute Bliss. Should be called Absolutely Perfect, because from the moment we arrived that’s what it was. We stayed in the Gold apartment, and found it provided everything we were looking for. Also loved the outdoor deck, table and chairs (with large umbrella) and enjoyed... More

Really good sized apartment for 2. My boyfriend and I are pretty private people and we had exactly that - piece and quiet and left to our own devices. We had planned lots of walks around the islands and where amazed at its beauty. The apartment is close enough to get the amazing views, without all the noise of the... More

Getting your car up the VERY, very steep drive is not for the feint-hearted, but once there, you are in for a warm welcome and excellent, comfortable, spacious accommodation. Good kitchenette allows self-catering. Drinks on balcony, with its stunning views, a must. We loved it here. We walked easily into town, got good exercise on foot to Waitangi. Emjoyed ferries...
