The location is unimprovable. The feel of the place is traditional kiwi bach. The partment was spacious, and the best part is that they go out of their way to make the trip feel relaxed. There is none of the nickel and diming and penny pinching that is a feature of so much accommodation. Just a great, relaxed, well done...

Working at a motel makes me fault-finding without even meaning too. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, we did move the couch to watch the tv in more comfort. We highly reccommend and will stay there again. The managers were very friendly, welcoming and helpful.
