This apartment is absolutely stunning. With its Beautiful pool and walking distance to the shopping and center of town. 10/10. If you don't stay here you WILL regret it.
It's placement in Havelock North and is so close to all wineries, attractions and beautiful scenery. The wife and I will be back for sure.

Thanks for choosing the apartment to stay..... also for your positive comments and feedback. Karen and I always enjoy seeing the pool getting used especially on hot days it makes it all worthwhile.

Yes a perfect way to spend a few hours after visiting wineries and the like. There is always the bikes as well, however not much good for you this time with your leg out of action! You never know....you may come back this way again and try some of the Hawke's Bay River Pathways. Rex & Karen

We stayed here for three nights in January 2017 on the recommendation of previous visitors. The condo, separate but part of a larger private dwelling, is ideally located close to the centre of Havelock North enabling easy walks to a generous supply of lovely eating places and quality boutiques if inclined to shop! The swimming pool was an added luxury and most welcome on our first night arriving to hot temperatures from the colder southern part of North Island. tTe condo is ideal with a large bedroom, ensuite shower room, exceptionally well equipped kitchen, associated dining area and a sitting area with Sky TV and Wi-Fi on tap. Tumble drier washing machine and hairdryer on hand, my idea of excellent accommodation. We shall certainly stay here again when visiting the delights of Hawkes Bay. J and B 20/1/17

Thankyou Barbara for your wonderful review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and got the chance to use the pool! Yes the weather has been very kind to us and I think we are still participating in the best weather in New Zealand here in the Hawkes Bay.

I do hope you can make it back this way sometime in the near future.

kind regards Rex & Karen Bartlett

Stayed at the apartment for 5 nights. It is very comfortable and well equipped with everything you need. Whilst being very close to all the amenities of Havelock North, it was private and quiet. The village is well placed for exploring the wider area.
It was great to be able to use the pool, which again was private and quiet. We would certainly recommend this property.

Well located in Havelock North within easy walking distance to restaurants, cafes and shops. We stayed for two nights over a weekend and the apartment is comfortable with free wifi and Sky TV. Well equipped, and in a quiet location. There are bikes and a pool available for use. We didn't take advantage, maybe next time.

Thank you Pat.....your review covers all aspects we hope to cover.....location, perfect distance to cafes/restaurants and shops, glad we delivered! Yes the pool is a favorite with the the guests in the summer and bikes come in handy for the many bike trails in this vicinity. The Hawke's Bay Trails network covers 200km of cycling pathways the largest network of easy cycle paths in New Zealand. Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and for your lovely comments Rex & Karen

We booked this apartment after reading all the reviews here on Trip Advisor and also because it has a central location in Havelock North and is only 10 mins walk from our family's home.
We honestly could not have chosen better, the apartment is very spacious and extremely well equipped. It is very difficult to add to the previous reviews as they are all correct. Rex and Karen are really nice people and obviously been "doing this" for a long time so have "got it right" they were there to make sure you had everything you could possible need but were also very unobtrusive. We stayed at the apartment for 19 nights in November and we really had over and above the facilities any Motel could offer, also we noticed quite a lot of alterations and building work happening in Napier and a lot of Motels had "no vacancy signs" which would suggest a good few building contractors are in residence. There is a little work going on in Havelock North but coming to an end ( small retail unit) that will enhance the already lovely central shopping area which is just across the road ( 2mins) our point being this is another plus for the quiet individual apartment. To sum up, yes we would definately book this again and would recommend to anyone needing a quiet home from home to stay and the option and space ( garden and pool) to invite family and friends round. " Whats Not To Like" ?

Room Tip: It's a one bedroom apartment privately located
