We believe great accommodation has stories that go beyond providing a bed for the night; these walls, soaked with history are now ready to make new memories. Apartment 16 is a place where you can live like a local, while creating connections to people and place, all with the comforts of home coupled with unique design touches.

A little known fact is that Apartment 16 was the base for Sir Peter Blake and his team during New Zealand’s successful Americas Cup defence in 2000. Taking in the incredible panoramic views of the City of Sails Harbour that Apartment 16 offers, Sir Peter, together with members of the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron held many secret meetings strategising their defence, before eventually becoming the first non-American team to successfully defend the America's Cup when they beat Prada 5–0.
