“Dream accommodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2011

We stayed here for the first 4 nights of our tour round New Zealand. It was just what we needed after 24 hours flying. The setting was perfect; wonderful view from the balcony/sitting room windows over the harbor and Auckland Bridge. It felt like being on a cruise ship. The apartment was large, comfortably furnished, well equipped and quiet. it was ideal location for walking to the shops, restaurants, tourist information and transport links. Booking via the internet months before couldn't have been easier; friendly, helpful, personal emails by reply. The only problem was having to leave - we could have happily lived there!

Arrived 1am into Auckland and Graeme met us within minutes of our late phone call to advise of our arrival at the waterfront. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment for 3 nights and the accommodation was spacious, modern and very clean. The apartments have great views, are perfectly located for all transport and only 5 minute walk to the city heart.
Many restaurants and bars are very close by and as far as noise is concerned I think some previous travelers are over exaggerating.
Great hosts and would recommend for anyone to stay here.

My wife and I have just returned from an 8 day stay at the Auckland Waterfront serviced apartments. We had a 1 bedroom apartment .These apartments are excellent value, there are dozens of restaurants within walking distance, the ferrys, buses, trains are all within 500 metres. We were initially concerned there would be noise from the bars etc, however we did not hear any noise from the bars/restaurants. This is a working wharf so there was the occasional noise of generators and gantrys etc, however this was only back ground noise and did not interfere with a peaceful nights sleep. We paid extra for a car space, as there is no free parking and casual parking rates are expensive.The apartment was fully equiped with, ceramic hot plate, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and clothes drier. They are individually owned so the level of fitment can vary from one unit to another. For one bedders they were spacious, with a large lounge dining room,and seperate bedroom.

we stayed here for six days and loved it. great views over the quay, watching the ferries come and go. also good fun watching the working port in action. we had a minor problem with downlights in the kitchen, which the agent said only the owner could fix. but apart from that, we were extremely happy with the style, furnishings and equipment.

Normally stay at another waterfront location on the Viaduct, but fully booked due to Luis Vutton Cup. Found these apartments on the web. First thing that strikes you on entering is that the sliding doors right on the harbour front slide back to the width of the room, bringing the harbour almost into the room - fabulous! Very quiet location ( was in shed 24 block) & never saw any other occupant during the 3 day stay in mid March 2010. Was lucky to have the world's largest sailing ship - EOS - dock right outside the apartment on my first night - fascinating to watch the amount of work going on on-board while this almost 100m yacht was in dock. Expected some noise because of this special visitor, but slept with the sliding doors open & never heard a sound! Highly recommended, but don't rush the bookings, I want an apartment when next I'm in town. Ken

I am impressed. It was the best stay in Auckland I ever had. The apartment offers a fully equiped kitchen and laundry facilities. All bedrooms and the living room have an amazing view to the bay. The balcony is huge.
The location is the best. Just 1 minute away from the Viaduct and in a close distance to the Queenstreet. Perfect for me.

Thank you, Annie. It was a great stay and nice chocolate.

We spent two wonderful weeks in Auckland in a 2-bedroom apartment which was absolutely stunning. (Didn’t hurt that we had great weather and that we were able to see the Louis Vuitton Pacific Series racing boats come and go every day). The apartment was very spacious, immaculately clean (we also were grateful for the free cleaning after the first week), and very well appointed. Towards the end of our stay we had a couple of friends from Auckland over, and they were all awed as well. It’s hard to beat the view and the location of this place. Some prior postings have talked about the noise. I guess it very much depends on the location of the apartment. There are restaurants on the ground floor of the pier, but they are closer to the beginning of the pier. Those restaurants have outside tables (which are very nice, but then maybe not as nice as your own balcony!) and if one had an apartment at that end of the pier there might be noise at night. Our apartment was closer to the end of the pier and it was absolutely quiet. (Actually it is nicer than the Hilton on the other side of the pier, since cruise ships dock on that side almost every day. You could wake up one morning and have a passenger look into your window. Those ships are huge!) In sum, we would highly recommend these apartments. Next time we stay in Auckland, we certainly will try to stay here again.
