Guest reviews for Pilots Rest

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed June 2021

Bachcare was great with correspondence and ensuring our stay here at the property was good. The property didn't go without its hick-ups even though the earlier reviews were quite positive. We couldn't have stayed at a worse time during the rain and wind season, which meant we were confined to the property the whole time. Andy thank you for taking the time out to come and help remedy the power situation it seems to me this is not an isolated problem so perhaps the owner could get this sorted before people get electrocuted. Hopefully my next visit the Billy Point Wharf will be fixed.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your review Sheryl. We are sorry that your stay was affected by some power points not working at the property. Unfortunately, as it was a public holiday it was not possible to get an electrician there immediately. You will be glad to hear that the owner is getting the issue sorted so it should be ready for your next stay!

Really sunny and lovely family holiday spot.

Stayed January 2021

Perfect spot to unwind and relax. Dog friendly, but unfenced.

Stayed April 2019

Great location - kids and adults loved watching the planes. Place is a little tired but has everything you need

Stayed April 2019

Nice little property, nice having the open space of the airfield and being able to watch the planes, close to all amenities - shops and beach only a couple of minutes walk away.

Stayed January 2019

The property is in a great location particularly if one likes aircraft and helicopters -- typical kiwi Bach but needs urgent maintenance and repair . Didn't feel good value for the rate charged.

Bachcare replied

Hi Garth, thank you for your feedback! We totally agree about the unique location and absolutely love it. Thank you for providing feedback to your local holiday manager to be passed on.

Stayed December 2018

Enjoyed our stay, while quite small and nothing flash, the place is very well set up and in an excellent location close to beach and amenities. The only issue we had was the fridge was more a freezer so hopefully that has been addressed. Proximity to the airfield adds interest to seeing the range of aircraft come & go - and wasn't too noisy at the time we were there (I suspect the week over New Years it could get a little tedious for the non-aeronautical).

Bachcare replied

Hi Hayden, Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, and thanks for the feedback re the fridge which we will get checked.

Stayed November 2018

The location of this holiday home is superb. Close to the shops and a lovely outlook. It was easy to be there. We thought the 3rd bedroom with its external entry was going to be a drawback but in the end it worked out wonderfully well. It meant the 1 year old could have daytime naps away from the rest of us. Plenty of parking , great clothes line and we loved the dining room table. A comfortable holiday home that I would happily stay in again . Thanks for giving us the opportunity to use your home.
