We had a 1 bedroom upstairs waterview apartment. The view of the water was great - the balcony was small so not really designed to sit for a long time but both lounge and bedroom had sliding glass doors and full wall of windows so view could be appreciated from inside.
The apartment also looked over the road which is extremely busy but the traffic was minimal from about 10pm to 7am for the four nights we were there so sleeping was not an issue at all.
Our teenage daughter had a queen size fold out couch in the living area - said it was one of the most comfortable she has ever slept on. It did make the living area a bit tight for moving around when opened. The main bed was also very comfortable.
Split system air conditioner in the living room only so not sure how warm the bedroom would get in the warm weather - we took advantage of the beautiful breeze and had the all the doors open while we were there until bedtime.
Whole complex was immaculately clean and the hosts friendly and able to provide ideas of what to see, where to eat and also book tours for us.
10 minute stroll to the main shopping/dining area of Paihia along the waterfront.
