Stayed there for one night last weekend. Building has weather-tightness issues which were not disclosed at the time of booking (in fact not disclosed at all...). The upper levels stunk , the carpets were worn through and appeared rotten in places, TV in the main bedroom was "out of order" and the balcony off the lounge was unable to be...

The couple who manage this place are the rudest people I have ever come across. Not worth the stay & if you do decide to stay just remember to NEVER have visitors because you are NOT allowed them at all!

This review was extremely difficult to write. After reading some absolutely horrific reviews about these accommodations I was a little worried about staying here. However, after staying I thought it best to try and set things in a more realistic review. Trish and Maury are an older couple who manage the complex and they are very kind, generous, and friendly....

Sadly, not a good experience at all. Apartment was badly detailed, booking had been carefully chosen for closest locality to a wedding venue with a request (as offered on website) for a slightly earlier check in to allow time to get to the venue. Request not even considered even though a weekday and no explanation given...check in was actually late...

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment and found the property to be clean, comfortable and very reasonably priced. It was in a great location to the beach and had a lovely balcony outlook. We found the managers to be very helpful and were appreciative that an extra car park was provided despite the fact only 1 parking space is...

We did the worst thing and booked a 3 bedroom for two nights without checking it out on Tripadvisor first!!! We have no one to blame but ourselves but PLEASE dont ever go here... our nightmare of a unit that cost $350per night had the following: Tauranga District Council notice advising the balcony not safe (never disclosed on any websites)...

If I could give this place less than 1 star I would. The managers of the apartment complex are the rudest people I have ever come across. Why the apartment owners employ them I will never know, The balcony is not accessable as it has a notice on it from the Council that it is not safe. Management do not...

We booked a 3 bedroom. The 3rd bedroom was at the back of the garage. The carpet was worn out and stain. The balcony doors were locked with a padlock and there was a warning sign in the window issued by the Tauranga city council warning that the balcony was unsafe. The furniture in the living room was covered with...

Work on your customer services Trish, truly shocking. Devoid of life. Place is a dump. Better off bringing a tent and sleeping on the beach then coming to this hell hole. Broken or non functioning appliances, moldy smelly rooms. Can't even tell you how gutted we were. Saw other guests and spoke with one group of people who were also...
