Village Apartment
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

We recently stayed here for a week and cannot speak highly enough of the quality of accommodation, attention to detail as to what is provided, the cleanliness as you walk in and of course the excellent location. As others have written , "it is a home away from home". This place is better than some so called high quality hotels we have stayed at due to the provision of Foxtel/TV entertainment channels and the freshness of the apartment including a welcoming vase of flowers - it's the little things which count the most. A definite "must stay again"!!

Hi, thankyou for your very positive comments, so pleased you enjoyed your stay. The weather continues to be warm and sunny, however not so good for the farmers. Even managed to have a swim today, first time ever at this time of the year. All the best and all going well see you again in the near future ! Rex & Karen.

Karen and Rex made us very welcome and at home in there lovely home.
We loved being able to park the car and walk across the road to all the lovely restaurants and cafes. This place is very handy and central to the village.
The place had everything we could ever need and after a long hot day it was lovely to be able to have a swim in their pool.
Thankyou and will definately be back.

Hello Val thanks for the feedback so pleased you enjoyed you stay with us and the weather was kind to you. Great that you used the pool, we have managed to extend the swimming season by installing a solar heating unit, good while the sun shines! However first time for Karen and I that we are still swimming end of March . Might see you next year Mission concert 2014.

We stayed at Village Apartments in November 2012 when we were visiting Havelock North for a wedding. The apartment was perfect. Totally self contained, it has all the mod cons and quality furnishings and linen. Karen & Rex are great hosts and have a great knowledge of the area. Just a stones throw from the village and the great cafes and bars. Couldn't have wished for better accomodation and we will definitely be back to stay when we are next in Hawkes Bay.

A beautifully appointed luxury apartment, with full kitchen and all the quality utensils you could need. Less than 2 minute walk to the centre of the village, beautiful shops and cafes, and less than 30 minute drive to over 40 wineries. Havelock North is a modern, very stylish village, every shop is charming and service friendly and helpful.
Only a 20 minute drive from the beautiful art deco jem, Napier.
Our second stay here, last time in September 2009 and we will definitely be back. Rex and Karen offer advice and help when needed. Perfect for a week of relaxation, but not quite warm enough yet to use the pool!

Room Tip: This is a single apartment under a house, not a hotel. Listed under wrong category.

This apartment is spotlessly clean, very well appointed and situated in a private, leafy garden.The appliances, crockery, utensils etc were modern and clean and the instructions for everything were clear and easy to understand. It is in a perfect location; walking distance to shops and restaurants and close to the nearby vineyards. Havelock North is a charming place with a real village atmosphere with Hastings and Napier easily accessible.

This apartment is centrally located and yet still very quiet. It has everything you need, is very nicely appointed and spotlessly clean. Havelock North is our favourite place to stay whilst visiting Hawkes Bay and we will definitely return to this apartment.

A great place to stay and particularly easy access to the fantastic Hawkes Bay vineyards. Some are only a few minutes away and the furthest took about 20 minutes to reach. Both Napier and Hastings are also very close.
Havelock North is a delightful village with beautiful shops and great coffee at several locations. Not a $2 shop in sight. Wonderful walks around the village as well as on Te Mata Peak.
The Village Apartment was brilliant - well equipped, blissful bed and tastefully decorated. A real feeling of luxury and quietness but so close to the village amenities.

Room Tip: Only one apartment, centrally located but quiet with leafy outlook. Very well equipped and classy.

Thanks for your wonderful comments, so pleased you enjoyed your stay in our apartment and that you had a good experience in our Village. Yes we agree so much too do, I think someone mentioned you can try a different coffee place each day of the week! Hopefully we will see you again in the near future when you are down this way again.
