Village Apartment
Reviewed May 7, 2012

I was thrilled to be able to spend a few more days at Village Apartment in April having first stayed in August last year. It felt special to return to such a lovely place "a home away from home" and knowing just what to expect made it even more enjoyable and comforting! It was as lovely as my first visit with everything still in tip top condition, spotlessly clean, peaceful, relaxing and yet so close to the centre of town where its all happening.. I wouldnt want to consider anywhere else. The hosts are so friendly and accommodating and yet you are rarely aware they are there, leaving you to just get on and enjoy your time there. And thats what I did - many thanks again Rex and Karen :)

Its a cliche, but the Village Apartment really is a home away from home. We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay in Havelock North. Rex and Karen have thoughtfully provided almost everything a visitor could need and the location is perfect. We thought we might be making more use of the apartment's extensive cooking facilities but the great dining options in the village and at some of the nearby wineries meant we didn't cook dinner for ourselves at all. Dinner at Craggy Range was a real treat and Pipi's was a lively place for great pizza.
Great location, great facilities, and great value for money. Thanks again. Louise & Chris from Melbourne.

We recently emigrated from Hawkes Bay to Wellington. We have family, friends and some business interests in HB so we need to return on a regular basis. Without wanting to impose on family etc., we were seeking a central location in which to base ourselves. Village Apartment suits us ideally as it is clean, tidy, well appointed and has everything that we require. Thank you Karen and Rex for your hospitality and look forward to using your apartment on a regular basis. Phillippa and Roger Gardiner

We stayed here when we came to Havelock North for a wedding. Recommend it very highly. Very clean, spacious and relaxing. You can walk everywhere into the village. The owners are great and just completely leave you alone which is what you want when you are on holiday. We went to pipi's cafe in joll rd and that was amazing. Casual, great atmosphere and lovely food.

We found this gem of a place on the web five years ago when we first started visiting family who had emigrated here. As a result we have appreciated Rex and Karen's warm welcome, and thoroughly enjoyed stays every summer since then. The facilities and location perfectly meet our needs.

The Village Apartment is a perfect place to stay for a couples weekend (or week!) away. This modernly decorated apartment has everything you need, including a full kitchen and stylish living space, and nicer feel than staying a hotel complex.

Rex and Karen are lovely hosts. I definitely recommend staying at the Village Apartment!

We were here March 12-14 and enjoyed every minute. Very well equipped modern apartment - we booked it because we liked the idea of strolling into a village for provisions and North Havelock was a great place to do that. Great specialty wine store in the village as well as all the usual supplies for bakeries, groceriesetc. One note of caution - things are a little slow in the evenings in the village - but that's when we really appreciated the kitchen inour unit. The surrounding area has much to enjoy - especially if you want to be front and centre in one of NZ's biggest wine regions - Hawkes Bay. Many cellar doors visited as well as great walks and really enjoyed nearby Napier with its abundance of art deco. We wished we could have stayed longer.

Hi , thanks for your very positive remarks. So pleased you enjoyed the hawkes bay and all it has to offer. Yes there are some fantastic award winning vineyards & restaurants very close to havelock north. its a pity you didnt get to try out local bar DIVA, thats where it all happens late into the night if you are looking for the music/people scene. All the best and safe trip back to Nova Scotia
