Kids are asking when we can go back lol. Host was amazing!
Kids are asking when we can go back lol. Host was amazing!- Deb, January 2023
Stunning veiws and very comfortable. The pool and spa were amazing and the park over the fence was awesome for the kids. Will definitely stay again,the best place I've booked so far. Thankyou:)- Yvonne, October 2022
“We had a lovely stay.”
The house is in such a fabulous location right on the waterfront, the kids loved having the playground right outside, and it was great walking along the beach in winter and returning for a soak in the spa. We were very warm and comfortable and there was plenty of room for us all (we had three kids with us). The owner/host Ian was great and made sure we were very welcome. The only minor point for improvement was the beds - they’re getting on a bit and could do with replacing. We also found Bachcare quite difficult to deal with, for example telling us to bring all our own linen (when we didn’t need to)- no reflection on the property or the owner though, and once the owner took over corresponding everything was marvelously easy. Thanks Ian for a wonderful weekend away at your lovely home.- Helena, August 2022
Hi Helen, Apologies we can see that you received the incorrect email regarding the linen. You will be happy to know that that issue has been fixed. Bachcare
“Great location handy to all the amenities, Great little beach and outlook to Rangitoto island.”
Great little getaway for the family!- Shaun, May 2022
“This was our second time staying at Ian's property & undoubtedly we will be back again.”
Fantastic facilities, awesome location & a great shower - what more could you ask for! We've only stayed as a couple but I could easily see this working for families or a group of friends. Highly recommended!- Jo, August 2021
“Just left our wonderful beachside appt after 10 days stay in Auckland.”
Had our family of 5 adults and plenty of space for us and managed fine with one bathroom. Loved the pool and spa and swam most days in the sea. So wonderful to have had such a lovely Bay and sea on our front door step. Also great to have Picnic cafe literally around the corner for the best coffee and breakfasts Appt was incredibly well stocked with coffee milk and extras Enjoyed the DVD and book selections too. Plenty of towels ( bathroom and beach) with an efficient washing machine which was perfect for our family.- Pip, January 2021
“We property was well situated right on a park and beach front.”
Excellent host and amenities. We will definitely return.- Christine, January 2021
“Great location, friendly host, however the place was full of personal items, opened condiments, and certainly not up to a hygenic standard for even a two star rating.”- Pamela, June 2020
"Thank you for your feedback, Pamela! Great to hear you enjoyed the location and appreciated the property's super friendly host! One of this property's many charms are some of the items that are on display, as decoration, that the owner of the property likes to share with their guests (such as the hat collection, for example). We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy them, and have passed on the feedback about any personal items that could potentially be removed to improve the guest experience. The windows and garden that needed attention hadn't been done for a while due to delays caused by lockdown during the Covid-19 crisis, but these have all been sorted now that everyone's back to work and catching up with backlogs. Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience. We hope this didn't put a damper on your stay and that you had a nice time at Castor Bay regardless!" Bachcare
“The property exceeded our expectations!”
We wanted somewhere peaceful, roomy, warm, comfortable, clean and affordable. We received that and much more. It was home away from home, right down to the little necessities required in a kitchen. We look forward to returning, especially in the summer to make use of the sea kyaks and the swimming pool. Our host was very kind and thoughtful, checking to see if he could make our stay more comfortable, which we thought was a really lovely touch. Thank you!- Karen, June 2020
