The apartment was very comfortable and appropriate for our needs. We were near the ferry terminal for our wonderful trip to Tiritiri Matanga Island. There was plenty of parking down by the pier for 9 am.

Tiny, modern studio with well appointed mini-kitchen. Close to the ferry and harbor. Check with the host about parking.

Response from Steve & Karen:
Thank you for your feedback Gayle. Sorry for the confusion re parking - we assumed Suzanne would let you know where to park but it sounds as if there was a communication break down. That road is actually a private road to the gated complex at the end so the body corp likes to try and flex their muscle sometimes! I have now updated our listing with the parking details. Thanks again. Regards Karen
