What a lovely apartment with fantastic views. Nothing is too much trouble for Thelma. We spent two days at Christmas whilst visiting family in Whitianga. The apartment is comfortable and spacious - wish we could have stayed longer!

Thelma looks after this place and her service level is outstanding, nothing is too much trouble. The apartment is large and well equipped,although not modern.The views are stunning,although the road noise is a bit annoying. Location cannot be bettered,everything is walkable to,and the beach is just over the road!
