Nice, light, airy apartment in easy walking distance from town - well equipped and it was lovely sitting on the balcony looking out to the bay watching the boats go past. The manager was very helpful with local restaurant and attraction recommendations. One drawback was that drinks were not permitted on the upstairs deck within the spa fence so we... More

Stayed for last four nights of our holiday in New Zealand. Rita and Bob were very welcoming and helpful with suggestions of places to visit and eat and when we had trouble with our wi-fi Bob quickly sorted this out. We prefer to do self catering and the set-up here is ideal as the apartment was well appointed with everything... More

On arrival we were early we were told no earlier than 2pm check in even though unit was vacant as a real estate was going through it within the hour. See you after 2pm we were told firmly with no offer to store our luggage, which we thought we might be able to do. Rita complained and is happy to... More

I got married in Whitianga and stayed at Crowe's nest for 2 nights. The staff knew I was getting married and therefore let me check out later which was very good since I was getting married at 12:30! They didn't have a problem with my grooms men coming over in the morning either for the photo shoot. On top of... More

Nothing wrong with the apartment but everything seems geared to making the management's life as easy as possible, check in only between 2-6, spa can only be used between 11-6, so you come back from the beach to relax in a fantastic rooftop area & the spa has more chains on it than a slave ship. A few highlights from... More

Stayed here for two nights over Auckland Anniversary weekend with my partner and our disabled friend. When I first enquired about a property suitable for our friend months ago I instantly knew this was going to be perfect. Bob dealt with my enquiry and was very informative. Upon arrival I was delighted with the standard of the apartment, safe secure... More

We stayed here just after new years, though the apartment themselves were reasonable the service was very bad. We were clear in telling the staff upon booking that we were staying with four children and four adults, and specified the ages of the children. The management came to us after a two days there and said that the children were... More

The quality and cleanliness of the apartment were of a high standard. The service of much less, though. The internet access was very limited and expired on our second day of stay - for the price they charge for the apartment the internet should be unlimited; it costs a little these days. The managers were not very accommodating when the... More
