Hi There, Sorry but all the apartments are separate toilet and shared double vanity bathroom. There is a virtual tour on our website where you can walk through the apartments like using Google Street View Click on Apartments then an apartment type then virtual tour ... no direct links are allowed in answers otherwise we would have provided on for you! If the Pioneer is not suitable for your traveling party, we trust you will have a great time in the Bay of Islands where ever you stay!
