    “This property is all about the location - you can't get any better for PIHA - patio deck is awesome, view of Lion Rock iconic.”

    Some issues that impacted our stay - TV not working, main bed not made properly nor cleaned under, despite a hefty cleaning fee. Bunks are not suitable for any person over 5'5" tall - kids bunks really. Patio umbrella is broken and not useable without some mcgyvering. It is a typical Kiwi bach, ad hoc renovations over the years. Kitchen is impractical, no counter space., although it was well stocked with utensils, glasses and plates etc. We prep'd on the main dining table which has a stainless ...

    Some issues that impacted our stay - TV not working, main bed not made properly nor cleaned under, despite a hefty cleaning fee. Bunks are not suitable for any person over 5'5" tall - kids bunks really. Patio umbrella is broken and not useable without some mcgyvering. It is a typical Kiwi bach, ad hoc renovations over the years. Kitchen is impractical, no counter space., although it was well stocked with utensils, glasses and plates etc. We prep'd on the main dining table which has a stainless steel top. The path from the road is just sand, fairly steep and can be difficult carrying luggage etc. 15 min walk to North Piha beach and surf club. Be aware, with the linen fees, cleaning fees and admin fees, the nightly rate doubles.
