“Quiet location but Numerous "Do Not" Notices”
Reviewed April 27, 2010

The accommodation was reasonably priced and clean, but the ambience was
spoiled by notices both on the exterior and interior informing one in no uncertain terms what you may not do. It definitely made you feel you wanted to go home!! One example is that if you have more than one vehicle, or a vehicle and boat, you MUST park one of them out on the road. Even though the place had a number of empty units as well as daytime guest carparks available.

Reviewed April 2, 2009

A new purpose built gated apartment block with free secure private parking. We had a 2 bedroomed apartment which was had quality furnishings and new mod cons, including a washing machine, dishwasher, full sized oven, fridge and tumble dryer. There was a balcony (no view of the sea but we faced the Mount). The main bedroom had a television as did the lounge. There was no storage in the second bedroom but the main bedroom has plenty. There are lifts to all floors which makes luggage handling a lot easier. We paid $140 per night (2 nights). There is a 5 minute walk to a surfing beach and the shops, the Hot Salt Water Pools are about 2 minutes away. We ate a Kwang Chow (241 Maunganui Road) which is an eat-all-you-can Chinese restaurant - amazing value at $20 per person and the food is good.
