Stayed August 2020

Well located to the beach. Large sized home with separate spaces, perfect for a big group (family).

Stayed April 2020

We stayed in one of their houses for 3 months. The house is great, but our experience with them was terrible. We agreed on a special price if we rent the house for at least 8 weeks. They even told us that we could let them know when we were ready for the second booking of 4 weeks and they would proceed with payment. When we intended to do this, they told us the house was already booked. We had to call them several times, as they promised they would see the issue and contact us back. They didn't. For this reason, when whe knew we were going to need 4 extra weeks we did it in advanced. We were ask to have a middle-stay cleaning, which we agreed and paid for it (a service of 4.75 hrs of cleaning). They came and do a very basic superficial cleaning which took them 2 hours tops only (we were in the house when the cleaning was held) but then they wanted to charge us for 15 extra minutes of cleaning. We contacted them and the only reply was: "sorry seems we misquotated the cleaning hours". No explanation. Now we left the house, and we left it in an standard way, we only left behind a bunch of food and cleaning products we couldn't take with us. They told us because of that cleaning took 16 extra hours. Thus a total of 20 hrs of cleaning. Really? This can't be serious, how long it takes to chuck stuff in a rubbish bag? 1 hour? We are very sorry about our experience, as Mount Maunganui and the House were incredible, However we left with the feeling that their policy is: "we will try to charge as much as we can to our customers, and if they don't say anything, better". How can you trust a business like this? I have seen that many customers have complained for similar reasons. It's a pitty that a business is run in such a poorly manner.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your feedback. As the cleanliness of our houses is of utmost importance to us and future guests, we ask that houses are left in a tidy manner and rubbish is regularly put out during long term bookings. However, in this case the house required an entire deep clean including all blinds, kitchen cupboards cleaned inside and out, and as rubbish had not been removed from the property for the entirety of the stay, this necessitated several hours to remove. There was hazardous waste left in the bathrooms. All of this was communicated prior to charging, and a warning was given about the state of the house and likelihood of extra cleaning after the mid-stay clean to give you the opportunity to bring it up to standard. We are glad to hear you otherwise enjoyed the house and area.

Great place to stay for a big group. Lots of space for everyone and nice and close to the beach.

Good value, close to the beach!

Stayed December 2018

Lovely big house in a great location at Mt Maunganui. We were two families with a combination of adults and teenagers and there was plenty of space for everyone.

Stayed November 2018

Highly recommended stay for the larger family and boat. Location absolutely perfect with the beach a couple of steps away. Grocery shop within a few minutes walk. So enjoyed our stay there. Many thanks.

Stayed November 2018

Great location - pop over the road to the beach and an easy walk/scooter ride into Mt Maunganui. Bach great for 2 families - well equipped and very practical. Comfy beds and great showers.

Stayed October 2018

Very clean and tidy, good value for money. Would certainly stay again if holidaying in the same area.
