Stayed April 2021

Warm and cozy home, perfect to spend a few days near the beach. Good neighbors. The pictures make this house look bigger than what it actually is, but still a good place. Rooms a bit too small but clean and comfortable.

Stayed January 2021

It's pretty old and tired but what we expected for the price. Check that the hot water is on when you arrive We know everyone's doing their best to sort out the rodent in the roof and for promptly repairing the door lock. It could certainly do with some upgrades around security as we were concerned leaving our belongings with only one basic lock. Great location though and it's got a real traditional feel to it.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your review Ciara, we are glad you and your family enjoyed the location of this classic bach. We apologise for the hot water issues, we will ensure that this is turned on sooner with more time to warm up moving forward. Since your stay the possum issue has been resolved. We hope to host you again in the future!

This bach was not of a standard we would expect from Bachcare, and we would not recommend it to family or friends. We have stayed in a few older, well maintained baches across NZ. This bach is not well maintained, and raised many health and safety concerns for us, such as windows that were very stiff and difficult to close, an insecure external door, a hole in the floor in the bathroom and patches of spongy floor in the kitchen. It also had a pest problem throughout our 9 night stay - with a possum living in the ceiling space. With such a great location it is a shame the bach has been let go.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your feedback and we are glad to hear you enjoyed the great location. We have passed along your comments to the owners of the property to make any repairs required. I am also happy to advise that the owners have sorted out the possum in the ceiling.

This is a lovely older style bach. Very clean and excellent location, but old. Has everything you need and in an excellent location. We will be back!
