Luxury apartments with great amenities. Clean modern and with stunning views, Close to great restaurants and 2 minutes to the wharf. Great kitchen facilities for those wanting to self cater. There is nothing better than sitting on the deck watching the boats and people go by.

We had the pleasure of staying in a lovely apartment in this prime location in Whitianga . The apartment had every possible facility and was in a great waterfront location. We happily had dinner next door at No 8 and this too was a very enjoyable experience. We hope to be back very soon.
