    Its a classic rustic kiwi bach in an idyllic location on the water front. What it lacks in modernity & comfort is more than compensated by the privacy and stunning view from the deck.

    Good location although it was never mentioned that we would be looking directly at a power station which was ugly. The floors in the property were treacherous and both my kids and myself slipped over on the floors. Why would you put slippery tiles in a cabin next to the beach? The place was not aired and smelt bad and one of the bedrooms we had to wash down the walls with disinfectant as it stank. In the same bedroom when it rained the rain dripped directly onto the bed.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for your feedback and we are sorry that your stay at the bach wasn't as expected. The bach is across the harbour from One Tree Point with the Port and the stacks from the Marsden Oil Refinery visible further up the harbour. We were unaware that the tiles in the bach were slippery or that the bedroom roof dripped during a storm, thanks for letting us know. We do regularly air,clean and maintain the bach between guest visits and sorry you found this otherwise.

    The main dining table in the bach had a leg that was broken and the table was wobbling but everything else was perfect! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay :)

    Glad you enjoyed your stay at the bach. Sorry about the dining table - a couple of the legs had come loose. We have since replaced the table with a sturdier one.

    We really enjoyed sitting on the deck everyday watching the tides come and go having our meals there and watching the birds in absolute privacy.
