“Get ready for a pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 28 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Seldom does one find a vacation rental with this level of attention to detail. An excellent design, spectacular views (if only it would stop raining), totally comfortable.

“A well-located luxurious apartment”
Reviewed 29 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We found this apartment to be the perfect base if you are planning to do the Tongariro Alpine Crossing or just exploring the Tongariro National Park. It is within a reasonable drive (20 mins) to the start of the Crossing and the information center. Also, several cafes can be found within walking distance, one even opened from 6 a.m. making it the perfect place to have breakfast before the hike. The apartment itself was nicely decorated and well-maintained. Bedrooms were located on the ground floor, making it easier for the suitcases. Living room upstairs was a good place to relax with a huge window/balcony overlooking the mountains. Strongly recommended.

“All about the view in this luxurious modern apartment”
Reviewed 23 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed at Parkview during our last trip to NZ in December. We were there for two nights whilst we trekked across the Tongariro Apline crossing.
The apartment was lovely, MASSIVE picture window on the first floor providing an amazing view across Ruapehu, such a treat to sit on the sofa with the fire blazing looking up at the stars or out at the mountains. The only downside was that the downstairs heating was a bit strange, fine if you're snuggled up in bed but makes for a very quick morning in the bathroom!
For a really good laugh read through the (frankly insane) comments book... some people expect way too much! This place was lovely and very modern, I hope that the plot in front of the building doesn't get developed otherwise the view may be spoilt.

“Luxury after the Tongariro Crossing.”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I booked this on a special deal but even on normal rates this place is great value for money.
We were pleasantly surprised to find a practically new , well furnished apartment on our arrival. It's modern decor featured underfloor heating, heat pump, gas fireplace, comfortable beds and modern kitchen. It had fabulous views and was a good size to comfortably house four people.
After a long day doing the Tongariro Crossing, we couldn't wait to relax in our home away from home. The sofas weren't particularly comfortable and we forgot to bring our own soap but these were minor points and we were very pleased we chose to stay here. I thoroughly recommend this place and would suspect it is one of the best places at National Park.

“A comfortable base for Tongariro National Park.”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

people found this review helpful

My friend and I enjoyed our two nights at Parkview apartments, however we did have a few issues. The tv was not working and was unable to be fixed during our stay, no handsoap provided and the knives were extremely blunt (my friend virtually used her hands to cut up a pumpkin). A few others had mentioned the latter two problems in the guest book and they still have gone unaddressed.

If not for these issues, we would have rated 5/5. The location is a perfect base for exploring the national park, everything was spotless on our arrival and unlike the first reviewer we thought the beds were amazingly comfortable! And the view is simply superb.

Thanks for your feedback. The tv issue has now been well and truly fixed. It was the satellite decoder that needed replacing. New knives are now in the apartment, and we will be providing hand soap in the bathroom for extra convenience.
