The apartment’s elevated position offers unobstructed views of the ocean. On a clear day Great Barrier Island, Little Barrier Island and the Coromandel peninsula can all be seen in the distance. The location is simply spectacular.

The apartment is modern and freshly decorated, with luxury touches throughout giving the apartment the feeling of a boutique hotel.

The master bedroom offers a queen-sized bed and a spacious en-suite bathroom with shower and bath. The second bedroom offers a split-king bed that can be separated into two single beds if required. Next to the second bedroom there is a second, smaller bathroom with shower and toilet.
