Viaduct Harbour Water View Apartment

Located in: Auckland
This compact apartment is located in Lighter Quay and has an open plan kitchen & living area that overlooks the water, with a bedroom that can be screened off with sliding doors.

Here are 3 things people love about our Viaduct Harbour Waterside Studio:

1. The water. You have so many choices of how you enjoy the private waterway directly below the apartment. You can enjoy the water views from the bedroom, or while you eat at the table, or you can sit back and relax on the balcony directly off the kitchen.

2. The location is simply outstanding. Lighter Quay is located in the Viaduct Harbour precinct at the base of Wynyard Quarter. It is little more than a stone's throw away from the hustle and the bustle of the city, but provides a quiet relaxed setting. You will be isolated from the noise of the central city, yet at the same time however it's just a short 5 minute walk to most of Wynyard Quarter, less than 10 minutes walk to the restaurants of the Viaduct and less than 15 minutes walk to much of the CBD. This apartment within this fully gated, secure complex is the ideal base from which to explore Auckland and it's close to the many national and international corporate offices.

3. The compact nature of the apartment means living is easy and the abundance of daylight is simply staggering. The size, style and location is very popular both for leisure and business travellers. A comfortable bed with quality linen guarantees a good night’s sleep.

Here are 3 things to consider before renting our Viaduct Harbour Waterside Apartment:

1. The apartment is in a residential area and close-knit community, so no parties are permitted in the apartment at all times during your stay. This applies to all residents, so ensures you will have a peaceful and quiet stay yourself. Although private, the apartment is located in a central city neighbourhood, so you will be surrounded by buildings and other residents. That’s not a downside, since the neighbours are generally a very considerate group of people, but you will be aware of their presence on occasion. Most people actually love it, since you will have a chance to meet locals and quickly strike up a conversation. Live like a local amongst locals and you will love your stay.

2. This apartment does not come with a car park. This isn't an issue for most people as the fantastic location means it's easy to walk to your destination, catch an Uber, or take advantage of the convenient bike share (OnzO or Next Bike) or car share (CityHop) schemes. If you have a car, you can park on the podium for loading or unloading, and either park on the street (see below for prices) or the Maritime Carpark is located just 2 minutes drive away.

3. Living in a close-knit community requires some basic rules to make things easier. We ask that you abide by these rules and that you are a considerate neighbour. By all means, live and enjoy yourself, just be mindful of noise and loud music both inside and out and you’ll have a fabulous time.

We have furnished this recently renovated apartment with new modern contemporary furniture.


Sit back and relax in style on the comfortable Norwegian leather recliners while watching Netflix on the 43" HD Smart TV. The wifi is connected to an unlimited high-speed VDSL internet connection.


The generous bedroom area can be separated by sliding doors for added privacy and features a queen size bed. Comfortable duvets and high thread count sheets will ensure you’ll enjoy a good night’s sleep. The closet is stocked with plenty of clothes hangers.


The kitchen and lounge offer views of the internal waterway/marina. The small table and chairs on the balcony offer a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee or a drink at the end of the day.


The kitchen, while compact, has everything you need to cook a delicious meal, or prepare a delicous beverage. It has a Nespresso coffee machine and a milk frother, as well as a hob, oven, dishwasher and compact bar fridge.


The laundry includes both a washing machine and a dryer, and we supply EcoStore washing powder.


Most of Wynyard Quarter is less than 5 minutes walk from your front door, and the main Viaduct restaurant area is less than 10 minutes.

Our place is less than a 15 minutes walk or a $5-10 Uber ride to much of the central city, including Westhaven, Wynyard Quarter, Viaduct Harbour, Queen St, and Ponsonby. If you want to catch a bus, there are bus stops within 300m.


This apartment does not come with a car park. This isn't an issue for most people as the fantastic location means it's easy to walk to your destination, catch an Uber, or take advantage of the convenient bike share (OnzO or Next Bike), e-Scooter (Lime) or car share (CityHop) schemes. If you have a car, you can park on the podium for loading or unloading, and the Maritime Carpark is located just 2 minutes drive away.

The rates for parking on the street are:
- Free every night 6pm - 8am and all day Sunday and Public Holidays.
- Monday - Friday 8am - 6pm $3/hour for first two hours, then $6 per hour after that.
- Saturday 8am - 6pm $1/hour.

There are plenty of bicycle racks located inside the secure parking building.


Portacot (additional $5/day). We can provide Jolly Jumper Roma 2-in-1 portacots that have both bassinet and cot level. This model has passed safety tests and is recommended by Consumer NZ. We'll also provide cot sheets and blankets.
