“Great location but the house was a huge disappointment due to the downstairs flat being unavailable.”
We booked it for a family gathering many months in advance and we’re informed of the change on the day of arrival.

“Sorry to advise but we found the property dirty, lawns not mown for a long time.”
Downstairs was cold and damp with a musty smell and a dehumidifier running upon arrival. Carpet appeared to have been uplifted. There was mould on the wall. We were unable to stay downstairs at all. We requested a separate freezer and received a email from Bachcare saying there was, 10 months prior to arrival, however there wasn't. Information said there was a BBQ - a disgusting one in the shed. Upstairs pullout couch had food and hair etc when opened up to sleep on seeing we couldn't use downstairs at all.- Lenva, October 2023
Thank you for your feedback, Lenva - we're sorry to hear the property was not up to standard for your stay. We have since removed the downstairs unit from the listing while the owners work through some maintenance issues. We will work through the other issues you have raised with our local services team and the property owners. Bachcare
“This property has serious issues!”
The musty stench is overwhelming! I suspect the roof is leaking along with the add-on conservatory… Please prioritise changing the carpet in the master bedroom, and investigations in the bathroom, and back of the house as to why the stench is so bad. At least air the house if guests are coming to stay (the house not having been rented for 9 months, is no excuse). No aerial thus no television, bring a chrome cast and extra internet if you want something to do on a rainy day, and outside of the lounge, really cold. Maybe offer some additional blankets. To make matters worse, the deck cracks under foot and the steps and railings are past their prime. Not the property for anyone with young children. A tradesperson turning up to give a quote for roofing and guttering was the icing on the cake. Surely it wouldn’t have been too difficult to have arranged that visit when guests weren’t staying. Please paint the exterior cladding on the bottom storey, you have what looks like exposed asbestos weatherboard…A kid kicking a ball on the driveway that accidentally hits that wall, could aerolise fibres if it is asbestos board Good Things: I struggle…an ocean view. We were lucky the weather was beautiful for our 5 day stay in Whitianga.- Ellie, September 2023

“Kia ora, We really enjoyed our stay and appreciate that it was possible for us to bring our dog.”
Everything was as described. Our teenage son enjoyed having the area downstairs to himself. The neighbourhood is nice and quiet, the views from upstairs are great. We hope to come back next year!- Ute, December 2022
“The house was awesome to us.”
The railing on the porch needs to be bolted and fixed as it's really loose and it's only gonna take one heavy person to lean on the rails to cause an accident which could even be fatal and lawn could do with a mow. Other then that we are definantly booking that same house for my birthday weekend at the end of October. LOVE IT.- Kerri-ann, September 2022
Thanks for taking the time to review your stay! You will be pleased to know we are currently looking into the issue you have raised. Bachcare
“Nice bach to stay and lovely view from balcony.”- dolly, February 2022
“My family enjoyed there stay.”
..I did read the reviews and it is quite retro and maybe up grade the couches but we weren't fussed. Would do it again...not suitable for older people as the stairs maybe a challenge but there is the sleepout which is fully furnished.- Tatiana, October 2021
“We had the perfect stay in a very kiwi bach thank you.”
The house was exactly what we expected, the view was great and the property contact was very helpful and even ensured the house was warm and cozy upon arrival. We will definitely be back thanks.- Maree, June 2021
“Property is neglected, leaking in sun room and bottom unit.”
Furniture dated , mattresses are old The steps to property dangerous in wet weather. Location to beach facilities is perfect.- Sharon, April 2021
Thank you for your feedback Sharon. We agree that Casa Carambas location is great and are happy to hear you enjoyed it. We are sorry to hear you didn’t fully enjoy your stay and will follow up with the owner to get any repairs required organised. We have a note on this property about the stairs and recommend using the handrail when using them. Bachcare
“Great, quirkly place, 2nd time we have stayed here.”
Very clean, tidy and suited us.- Leesa, January 2021
“This is a cheap property for a reason.”
Nothing wrong with the facilities or the layout (except no dishwasher). We still had a good time in Whitiaga. But the 1970s decor of the house is in bad need of rennovation.- Doug, January 2021
“The house was lovely, well-cleaned, spacious for 5 people and one furry friend looked same as photos, near by the beach, well equipped!”
It was a pleasant Stay- Jess, March 2020
“A good traditional kiwi bach, just what we needed for a quick weekend break.”- Matt, February 2020
“Typical kiwi style batch suitable for smaller groups.”
The property allows dogs, but bear in mind that it is not fully fenced. There are also stairs up to the property and this is the only way it can be accessed.- Sacha, June 2019
Hi Sacha - glad you enjoyed your stay - we have added more notes to the listing to clarify about the stairs and garden. Bachcare
“A reasonably priced property comfortable for 4 adults in a good and convenient location.”
