  • Great property, fantastic view, just a little dusty for our hay fever...

    Great property, fantastic view, just a little dusty for our hay fever prone members.

  • The bachiest bach ever

    The bachiest bach ever. Complete with awesome patterned curtains, National Geographics from the 70s and that classic bach smell. The view was completely undersold on the website. The negatives were that it was pretty steeply priced for Easter weekend (hotel prices when you have to bring your own linen?) for what you get and the BBQ was absolutely revolting & barely useable. Would have been good to know beforehand so we could have planned accordingly.

    Owner/manager responds:

    The bach's retro charm means people get a real kiwi 'bach' experience which we think is becoming harder to find :-) We will inform the owner of the property about the bbq - nobody had reported its neglected state to us previously but now that we know we'll let the owner know for sure. For 2 families you'd've needed 2 motel rooms for $270 and you'd be 5km from the Head's beach and shops This house was $275 and is massive with sea views and you can walk to the beach...Great value eh! :-) :-)

    Great location stunning view big house - kitchen was not cleaned to our high standards thanks to previous guests and a few things were broken but owners have scheduled to fix and promised to address cleaning so I would recommend!
