10 ladies were in my group and everyone was very impressed with the house, delighted to find heated floors in bathrooms, water pressure in downstairs shower was so good, big comfy beds, would definitely recommend to anyone, thank you

Great house, superb location, amazing deal! This place was a great find for a few days away in the school holidays, had nearly everything you needed. The sunrise & sunsets were pretty epic, and the kayaks were a nice addition given that you could access the water right from the backyard via your own private waterway access.

This was my first time staying in the water ways in Pauanui and none of that Pauanui magic has been lost. You arrive and it's almost like there is a stress shield about the place it's not allowed and you just relax. never been there at anytime of year were the summer time chill isn't about. The shops close early ish the internet is sub par but you get cell reception. A proper kiwi holiday with the nicer bits in life all around you. I have never felt like anything lacked at a place I have stayed every place has been just the right amount of extra bit's. This place is no exception the bluetooth music system was right on point. the seemingly private yet panoramic rear glassness of the place looking out over the waterways with the bush laden hills in the background amazing. it almost felt a shame to have to leave everyday instead of just relaxing on the patio or the deck off our room. The Pier made for a great way to see and say hi to the neighbours when as as you felt but you never felt closed in. will be keeping an eye out in future to stay again.

I found Bachcare company itself very professional and customer service orientated. Very visible and present when needed. And willing to make amends when things went wrong. The property was nice, a little bit small for the price, I thought. But well kept and clean and beautifully situated. It was very disappointing, however, when we arrived to discover that there was no wifi available to use, despite the smart tv and the property clearly having it there. I think that properties particularly like this one, which costs a considerable amount of money, per square footage, need to have wifi these days. It’s a standard expectation that people have nowadays. My children enjoyed very much the use of the kayak at the house in the waterways. It was also a nice place to do some evening walks, and bike rides, with lovely expansive views of the mountains out the back. We had an issue which woke us up at 8:30am on our first morning and caused us to have to vacate the property for 5 hours that day. A chemical cleaning company knocked on the door and said that they were contracted to clean the exterior of the 4 unit building that day. I was not happy about this, to say the least. My son has a strong aversion to chemicals and is highly sensitive. They sprayed litres of chemicals through the air, which soaked into the lawns and even ran off into the waterways. I was appalled that they were permitted to do that so close to the water and when people are holidaying in perk season/bank holiday weekend. Instead of relaxing, I spend a lot of time on the first day of our holiday talking with with from Bachcare on the phone. However, I found them very understanding and professional and sympathetic to our situation. Cathy called and offered us 1 nights refund in lieu of the inconvenience, which I thought was considerate. And Amelia was very considerate and kind and came over with her partner to help us with the tv and oven and empathise with our situation. She also relayed the story of what had happened to the owners. The following day, the owner sent us a bottle of champagne, cheese and crackers, through Amelia, which was a thoughtful touch.

Bachcare replied

Hi Fiona, sorry to hear your stay was spoilt by the chemical cleaning company. Unfortunately this had been arranged by the building management company without informing us. Happy to hear that Amelia was so helpful and the owner also recognised that this incident spoilt your experience
