Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ever dreamed of absolute sea front, no overshadowing by high rise, a skip and a hop and you are in the ocean or spend a 5 minute walk and be in the Gisborne CBD then go no further. A modern spacious apartment well appointed, heaps of space and fantastic view up and down the coastline, always something to see. The hosts Dennis and Dail leave no stone unturned and make you feel so welcome. This is a standout.

From the minute I walked through the front gate of their beach-side apartments, Dail & Dennis treated me like a long lost friend.
I stayed in the penthouse apartment for the two nights of November 30th & December 1st, 2010 and enjoyed every second. The view is amazing, the rooms are immaculate and Dail & Dennis are the perfect hosts.
I did not have a vehicle but Waverley is an easy walk from central Gisborne and with the beach at the front door there are great walks in both directions.
If you're going to Gisborne do not miss out on staying at Waverley.

Waverley Apartments have a beautiful location on Waikanae Beach. And it couldn't be more convenient to town. I enjoyed not staying in an impersonal hotel, rather relaxing after a work day soaking up the uninterrupted view of the ocean.

Dail is a great host with a relaxed and welcoming greeting. Everything we needed was there. Thank you and hope to return again.

Stayed two nights in the penthouse apartment. Great location right on the beach and an easy walk to the Main Street. Use of a washing machine and drying rack was very helpful. Garage parking. Wonderful.

We rented the penthouse apartment and one of the B&B rooms . The welcome from Dail and Dennis was very friendly and helpful, as had been all our contact with them prior to our arrival. We were blown away by the location and the wonderful views from the apartment. Everything you needed for a comfortable stay was available. The kitchen was well equiped and the bedrooms and bathrooms were well appointed. Wifi was free and a reasonable speed. There was a lift and our own garage and a balcony where we could watch the sunset. It is a great set up and a fantastic place to stay. Thanks Dail and Dennis!

You couldn't stay at a closer place to the beach in Gisborne. Denis and Dale were welcoming hosts, the apartment was spacious and well-equipped and the view was unbeatable. Wake up early and walk along the boardwalk and breath deeply!

We stayed in the penthouse which is great for two couples, both bedrooms have their own ensuite. We found that the hosts had kindly supplied provisions to assist in making us feel comfortable. The actual apartment is a reasonable size, comfortable living with wonderful views out over the beach and sea, also could watch ships being loaded in the port. It is located reasonably close to supermarket and restaurants and is somewhere I would be happy to stay at when we next visit Gisborne

What a great location this luxury apartment is in with wonderful views out over the beach and harbour. Everything was provided in the self catering 3rd floor apartment with generous amounts of milk, coffee, bread, spreads etc. There is comfortable seating both inside and on the deck where we enjoyed a wine as the sun went down.
Both bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and there is secure covered parking on-site.
Hosts Dail and Dennis couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful

Thanks Dail & Dennis for our one night stay in your beautiful B & B. Great breakfast in the morning and fantastic views over the ocean. Lovely to have the chat. Thanks once again. We used the B & B unit on the ground floor which was very comfortable with it's own ensuite.

With individual ensuites the apartment is ideal for travelling couples and has all the cooking facilities and utensils to make a stay exceptional.

It doesn't get any better than this.
