“First Class Apartment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

I found the Village Apartment through Holiday Houses and immediately it stood out amongst the listings with all the facilities and features I was seeking. The apartment was stylish and beautifully furnished with thought given to every detail and all mod-cons one would expect of a five star motel. The apartment is centrally located with the village on your door step offering great shopping and some lovely eateries. I would highly recommend this apartment with the hosts being extremely friendly and respecting your privacy. I found the standard of accommodation far superior to a motel and great value.

We stayed at the Village Apartments for a short two night stay in Havelock. Found the accommodation lovley, clean and warm with the gas heaters. Location was great in being able to cross the road to the lovely township of Havelock. The kitchen was great for cooking and surrounds better than a hotel/motel room. Owners were welcoming and accommodating offering us a late check out the morning we left. When we return to Havelock later this year if this accommodation is available we will be staying here for sure.

We found Village Apartments great, it was spacious, clean and had every facility you need for a weekend. Perfect location and friendly hosts in a quiet setting.As we were there in winter the heating was very good and easily kept the rooms at a very comfortable temperature. Couldn't ask for more or a better option.

We stayed at the Village Apartment after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor.This is the first time we have booked this kind of accommodatio; we usually opt for hotels. We needn't have worried though. The apartment was fully self contained and private. The owners were very welcoming, gave us our own space, but made it clear they were there to help if need be. The apartment is spotlessly clean and modern. It has everything you could possibly need. The location is excellent, literally a stroll from the village. We wil return next time we want a weekend break.

We found that the Village Apartment was the perfect place to stay when visiting Havelock North in the glorious Hawke's Bay autumn. It is spacious, bright and clean and a very short stroll away from the village shops and restaurants. The kitchen has absolutely everything you need. The previous reviewers have got it exactly right. This place is absolutely perfect.

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.
