  • The property itself was very clean and tidy and a nice size

    The property itself was very clean and tidy and a nice size. Reasons for less stars is hugely on the driveway/parking situation, that is not suitable for more than one car, we parked on the road side (which isn't very safe) due to difficulties of getting in and out the driveway. There was tea and coffee provided but no milk. As well as the neighbours were very noisy, continuing to wake us up even at 4am ( which although not their fault exactly, it was not relaxing).

    What a terrible review, can't believe that I missed it! "Dirty"??? We have this bussines for 6 years now and we advertise it on 4 different website and our guests ALWAYS note how clean the studio is. And It's one of the cheapest options on the island! And I have no idea why you washed dishes in the bathroom sink as there is an outdoor sink specifically for this! Sorry about the milk :-/

  • Location is beautiful, Onetangi beach is down the road

    Location is beautiful, Onetangi beach is down the road. Seaview road is quite long so its very handy if you have a car or if you are very fit. The place is very clean and tidy, the BBQ out the back is really good!. I wish other people who used the driveway were accommodating but in this situation some people dont understand you must need a run up to get up it sometimes. To Olga credit she did inform us about it and how to proceed in her lovely emails :). Great place to stay for a few days!
