We had a great 3 night stay in 2012, so when we were passing through again, we arranged for another stay - this time 4 nights. Once again it was a terrific stay.
Our daughter was a toddler this time, but the apartment was still great - and the pool was used with her every day. We were less flexible with going out to meet friends at restaurants for dinner this time (toddlers don't go down for night sleep in the buggy as easily as babies!), so it was great to be able to invite friends to the apartment for dinner. Kitchen pretty well kitted out, but had to buy a couple of utensils - though I didn't ask at reception whether that had any of the things I needed.
The area is great for non-drivers like us, with enjoyable walks up and down the coast with the buggy.
We stayed on the top floor, and I was fine with going up & down the stairs with the buggy, but others might prefer ground floor.
The bad - well the $10 wifi charge still strikes me as cheeky & overpriced - given it's free at many nearby shops, etc. Also, it was a mini heatwave when we arrived, and the apartment got pretty muggy at times. Still, better than being cold!
Anyway, we'll definitely stay here again the next time we're passing through between UK & NZ.
