“Had the best stay possible at this bach!”
Everything was super clean and all the necessary amenities (cups, plates etc) were there. Primo location and a superb view! Went with a group of friends and everyone enjoyed their stay - no complaints! Will definitely recommend to others.

“The property is in a great location with beautiful views from the deck a close to the local shops short drive to the beach.”
Disappointed with cleanliness of the property on arrival the bathrooms and toilets had not been cleaned properly and the floors had not been properly vacuumed or mopped.- Bridget, January 2023
Thank you for your review, Bridget. At Bachcare we take cleaning very seriously and have strict guidelines in place to maintain our high standards. We are sorry that in this case, this was not what you experienced. We appreciate your feedback which has been taken onboard it is worthy to note that since you posted this, we have changed the cleaning team for the property. Bachcare
“We agree with previous reviews.”
The bach is superbly placed for sea views and sun and was comfortable and well equipped. It is private and in a quiet area of Mangawhai Heads with good access to lagoon down an adjacent walkway and steps. Unfortunately our holiday was marred by a non functioning sewerage system when we arrived which though fixed meant our first day was disturbed by contractors and property manager coming and going. These things happen so we have no complaints but we were frustrated by the response from Bachcare and the owner when the sewerage system failed again the day before our departure with toilets threatening to overflow. We were not advised that it would be fixed urgently so were forced to leave a day early leaving the bach in an immaculate condition. The property manager and Bachcare were notified with full details that the bach was uninhabitable and we were entitled to a full refund. Despite being entitled to a full refund under the Fair Trade Act and Bach care's Terms and Condition stating that both the Bachcare booking contract and owner rental contract must abide by the Fair Trade Act I was repeatedly told any refund was at the owners discretion and was only initially refunded a partial payment before receiving a full refund after delays and repeated efforts on my behalf. The Fair Trade Act makes it illegal to mislead you and requires them to provide accurate information but when I asked Bachcare why they withheld a large part of my refund they did not respond.- Elizabeth, December 2022
Thank you for your feedback. We are truly sorry that this event disrupted your holiday. A Tradesman was contacted and rectified the issue within 24 hours. We are pleased that the problem was resolved and we were able to reach a satisfactory resolution with you. Bachcare
“Lovely comfortable property with terrific views.”
We had a great stay. Thank you- Kathryn, July 2022
“Unfortunately we found the place not very clean (kitchen drawers full of crumbs, dust on bedside tables) and fridge smelly, windows overlooking the view needed a good clean, microwave was inconveniently located in the laundry and the outside tiles were dangerously slimy and could have easily caused falls.”
One of the induction burners was also not working. Two of the bedrooms were well appointed but the third was not. For the price we paid, we did not think we got value and would appreciate bachcare considering some kind of refund. Thanks.- Kenneth, June 2022
Hi Kenneth, Thank you for taking the time to advise us of your stay. We apologise that the cleanliness did not meet standard and this will be highlighted with the local managed service provider. We will be in touch directly via email. Bachcare

“We loved staying at this beach house.”
The views and the proximity to the estuary would be hard to beat. Everything was provided at the house and having three bathrooms is a bonus. We will definitely be back!- Ciaran, January 2020
