A great private residence in the Spencer on Byron building in the heart of Takapuna. This is a privately owned One Bedroom suite, exactly the same as booking a One Bedroom suite through the hotel, including the same interior and decor. The apartment also includes complimentary wifi (the hotel charges extra). Guests of this suite are also entitled to all the leisure facilities of the Spencer complex including:
- Thyme Restaurant & Bar
- Heated outdoor swimming pool & jacuzzi
- Outdoor tennis court
- 24-hour front desk
- 24-hour security
The bonus of booking this apartment would be a guaranteed quiet suite on a high-floor (sub-penthouse, 19th floor) with views of Lake Pupuke from the bedroom and sea views from the lounge. It is also north-west facing for all day sunshine.
I am an owner/occupier so the appliances e.g. TV in bedroom, kitchen appliances, cutlery, utensils etc. are of a higher quality than the hotel provisions - well suited for long-term stays. I also provide Apple TV (you will need your own iTunes account) and a wireless printer.
The suite includes:
- Lounge & dining area
- Separate bedroom
- Ensuite with shower over bath
- Kitchen including oven, stove, microwave, kettle and toaster
- Fridge & freezer
- Washing machine and dryer
- Iron and ironing board
- 32" Flatscreen TV in the lounge, 40"LED SmartTV in the bedroom
- Apple TV
- Bluetooth unit compatible with smartphones and iPods
- Wireless printer
- Complimentary tea and coffee and cooking basics
- Good quality range of cooking appliances including a slow cooker, food processor, cake mixer
- Brand new linen as of April 2016 (all bedding: duvet inner, pillows, mattress and pillow protectors, covers and sheets, bath towels and beach towels)
- Additional storage units handy for long-term stays
- COMPLIMENTARY WI-FI
There is plenty of off-street parking free during off-peak hours and all day Sunday, or designated parking in the building can be pre-arranged for a small fee.
I am happy to let the suite out on a weekly basis, short-term weekly basis or a long-term monthly basis. Please enquire.
*NB. Facilities are exactly as per hotel (however does not include a phone). I will guarantee a better rate with proof of hotel quote. I live in Takapuna so I am available at any time if there are any issues or for local suggestions. I am able to meet you personally to hand over keys and walk you through the suite if necessary.
**Photos of the apartment are of the suite next door (previously owned by me). The one listed now is the one right next to it (with more sea views). I also have an adjoining Studio Apartment available if more room is required. Please see the other listing.
