BLUFF HILL, NAPIER: Each of the three bedrooms comes complete with an adjoining ensuite making it suitable for guests or bigger families. My pick of the bunch has to be this wonderfully large bath placed in just the right position for a spectacular view over the ocean. Some candles, a dash of bubble bath and a glass of white and voila - the perfect relaxing evening. <a href="http://www.trademe.co.nz/property/residential-property-for-sale/auction-643103672.htm" target="_blank">Check it out.</a>
