Great place for a group. Appreciated having space for a young child also. Thanks for having us!

Stayed March 2022

This property is fantastic for extended families, we had heaps of room for everyone. So close to the lake a 2 min walk was perfect. The house was very clean and presented well. We will definitely stay again.

Stayed June 2021

Great property, perfect for sports team as plenty of space and amenities

Stayed April 2021

Great property for stays with family & friends. Lots of room for adults and kids to enjoy their own space. Excellent boat parking and is very warm and cosy for a winter stay,

Stayed February 2021

The property still looks like it needs some love - the stairs are missing railings so for any kids (not that we had any there) this would be a risk factor and it's been like this for years. To top this off we had no hot water for the entire stay - the gas system was shot so we couldn't have hot showers and had to boil the jug for doing dishes that couldn't go in the dishwasher. The owner of this property really should consider spending some money on the property before increasing prices for no real benefit to the people that choose to stay there. I have used this property for several years now but will consider alternative options now if prices continue to rise in comparison to other equally if not better properties that I use for the purpose of our weekend.

Thank you for your review Andrew. The property owners are very focused on the guest experience and work constantly on improvements for Choice Wharewaka. We're sorry that you felt like this wasn't the case during your stay. In the past 4 years, the property owners have upgraded the kitchen, installed new garage doors, new outdoor furniture, new heatpump and new insect screens, along with countless upgrades around the house. You may not be aware that the railing had broken in January and it had been removed until we had a chance to repair it, which is the reason for the note on the special conditions. We appreciate that you decided to stay when we were unable to fix the sudden hot water issue immediately for you, despite attempts, given the lack of availability in the area over this busy weekend. We were glad we were able to come to a suitable solution for compensation for you due to such a vital amenity not being available unexpectedly which we feel is important to note.
