The bach is in a nice quiet location but the cleanliness is real issue and the bach is not up to the standard of the pictures.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your feedback and we are glad to hear you enjoyed the location! At Bachcare we take cleaning very seriously and have strict guidelines in place to maintain our high standard. It's unfortunate that this was not what you experienced and we will follow up with our local team to improve this. We do hope you enjoyed your time on Waiheke and look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Our stay at Bay Cottage was mostly lovely just a few issues with cleanliness.

Stayed December 2018

We liked many aspects of this home. There is a lovely partial view of the ocean, and you are just a short walk down some steps to the beach. It has a unique lay- out that makes the home feel bigger then it is, with lots of nooks and crannies to get comfortable. The living room furniture was quite comfortable, as were the master bedroom beds. Nice shower as well. And the bedroom in a separate unit was a welcome nest for two of our teenage girls. There is a hot tub which looked great, but was malfunctioning due to a lightning storm that had hit the island a few days earlier. The cleaning service which prepared the house for us was not as thorough as we would have liked, but I suspect that will be improved. Also, if you plan to take advantage of the beach, be sure to bring your own beach towels, chairs, etc. All in all, it was a nice house in a lovely setting.
