Guest reviews for Aylmerton

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed March 2021

We enjoyed the great views from comfortable furniture and beds. Spacious house and relatively handy to the waterfront. The bathroom fittings, however, are somewhat tired and so consequently, given that there was also no wifi, we felt the rental rate was higher than would be expected for the quality of this amenity.

Thank you for your review Grant. We are sorry to hear you felt it was overpriced, we do try our best to fairly price our properties taking into consideration their amenities, location and the other properties in the area. We do also list which properties have Wifi so if you are looking for this specific amenity we recommend applying it as a search filter when booking.

Great house for us for a weekend. Lovely views and great deck and sitting areas. Nice walk into town through the nearby Garden of Tane.

my family enjoyed staying at Alymerton, stunning view and typical rustic south island interior decorating, plenty of room for kids to play. very organised and clean kitchen and bathroom. After the trip, my 4 year old kid was saying that he wants go back to Alymerton because my house in Auckland has no sea view.

Amazing views, rustic holiday home with a log burner that is perfect for winter...loved our stay!

Stayed July 2019

We adored our stay! Terrible weather was just perfect for sitting with the log burner enjoying the INCREDIBLE VIEW in this idyllic spot. The house was great, very much appreciated the cleanliness and comfort. To give top 10/10 the beds in the non- master rooms could be better and there was no kitchen rubbish bin. Also, we brought our own linen but did not realise there would be no hand towels or bath mats....perhaps just specify that.

Excellent property, clean, good size. value for money

Stayed May 2019

Amazing views and cosy fire, great spot! Maybe a 10 minute walk down the hill into town. Easy communication about the key. Would definitely go back!

Stayed October 2018

What a fantastic view and the most comfortable place I've ever stayed in. It's my first time ever to stay in a Backcare home. My friends and I absolutely loved this place and I will not hesitate to book it again. Highly recommended!
