My wife and I spent two nights here to tie in with our booking for the White Island tour. Our studio apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped, including flat screen TV with many stations. It was serviced daily and included free wifi for numerous devices.

Best night's sleep ever in the super king-size bed in the commodious front bedroom in the back bungalow. With three windows open I could hear a morepok call from the nearby bluff. Loved the up-to-date but old kitchen with its meat safe and bins for flour and sugar. Delightful.
