I work for the Airlines in the UK, so myself and my husband are extremely lucky that we get to travel around a lot and see some amazing places (although have had a few mishaps travelling Standby!).
Have been to Oz a lot but this was our first time in NZ, we started off in Auckland and travelled all around the North Island. The Bay of Islands was our favourite destination, we found it in one of those books entitled ''places to see before you die''! The ABRI APARTMENTS were by far one of the most beautiful, clean and relaxing properties we have ever stayed at! The apartments (we stayed in Treetops!) have amazing views over the Bay and we found it difficult to tear ourselves away from the balcony where we had our breakfast every morning! It is only a 2 minute walk down the road to the front of Paihia where you can take a stroll by the waterfront and find lots of different style eating places, quirky shops and information centres on trips etc!
We had 3 nights at the Abri Apartments but really wished we had had enough time to stay there for at least a week!
The new owners Peter and Helen have made it a little piece of heaven!
''Thankyou Peter for also helping us when our car got stuck on our arrival!'' Much appreciated!!!
Really loved the spa bath and all the natural soaps and smellies provided, as well as fluffy bath robes!
Came back from a trip out to the ''Dolphins and Hole in the Rock cruise'', to find lovely grapes left in our kitchen area that my husband could not stop eating, he said they tasted like pure fresh blackcurrrants!
The actual apartment in general is immaculate but lovely and cosy with beautiful soft furnishings and wooden surrounds, you just feel so at home. The surrounding gardens to the property are beautiful and tropical with lots of birds to watch at breakfast!
Brochures, leaflets and a ''suggestions'' book of what to do depending on the weather is spot on!
We really hope to stay at the Abri Apartments again when we next have a trip to the Southern Hemisphere, and would recommend this property to all you travellers out there!
