    Compared to other properties we have stayed at it is way over priced considering we had to dispose of our own rubbish etc. Fridges had to be cleaned before we could put stuff in, great washing machine but it leaked, and nowhere to hang cloths, only the 2 wires outside by out door shower which held 3 towels. Bottom single bunk bed needs some attention to the base, other beds average. Average cleanliness. The beach was perfect for the children and safe. We won't be back to stay.

    Owner/manager responds:

    The bach is in a rural coastal location in Central Hawkes Bay & one should understand that you need to take your own rubbish away & there are no external cleaners to clean the bach so we rely on the honesty of the guests to do this. Both are stated in the criteria if you book. For the last 7 yrs we have rented the bach we haven't had a problem with cleanliness, wire line or questioning the beds from previous guests. Most of the fixtures & fittings fitout was new when house was built.

  • The location is the highlight here

    The location is the highlight here. Absolutely stunning wee beach, and the house is perfectly located to the beach, and laid out brilliantly. I'd suggest a more detailed clean from time to time, as some people's standards and being left closed for periods detracts from its potential. An improvement might be cover over the trip from lounge to bedrooms. Definitely plan to return.

    A great location to get away from it all and relax (shingle road last 10km). Not many people around and not a lot to do. The bonus is that it was so quiet we had lots of early nights. I did want to bake muffins with our toddlers . We took the ingredients but there were no muffin trays or cake tins, there were 2 slice tins. They had a plunger so take coffee. We did drive into Waipukuarau to take kids to the local hot pools one day. Kids enjoyed learners pool and the playground outside.

    We had a really nice weekend stay. Weather was terrible, but cosy inside. Bah had everything we needed. Clear directions on how to get there. Prompt emailing from host. Would recommend! Lovely secluded beach.
