We were greeted warmly on arrival to this idyllic place. Fabulous views and location a stones throw from restaurants and the ferry. Surprisingly quiet and amazing views of rabbit island and the estuary. A little unfinished in places but otherwise perfect! Would definitely come again!

Management response:

Thank you for your review. I do look forward to welcoming you again.

These apartments are in the MOST INCREDIBLE location...with only a few meters to walk and you are on Mapua wharf. The apartment itself is fantastic!!!

The view is...

Management response:

Thank you. I was an absolute pleasure meeting you both. Regards michelle
