we finished our tour of NZ here. the apartments are 5 min walk out of the centre but because of their elevated position above the beach, have possibly the best views of the bay of islands. our apartment, apartment 8, is possibly the best in the complex being on the top two floors both with balconies. the first floor consists of a large lounge/diner, good kitchen and a spa bathroom. the upper floor master bedroom, shower room laundry facilities and second smaller bedroom. the views are to die for and we spent more time on the balcony watching than we would normally because so much was happening. expensive but worth it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it, the only downside was that the manager was the least friendly person we met on our tour round this wonderful country
