    Property was in a good location, however the house was infested with Ants and Grass hoppers. I had to clean ants off the bench numerous times. The double bed was also uncomfortable, it sunk in the middle. The worst part of the stay was the host, he was quite unprofessional, he had told us a lot of things we couldn't do in the house, which made it feel like he couldn't trust us, which made it feel uncomfortable to do anything. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

    Thank you for this response, As your booking was booked for only two pax, your friends arrived before you which turned out the booking was actually 3 pax which we knew nothing about. They arrived drunk and boasting how fast they got to paihia which had put me into a cautious mind-frame which anyone who rents homes would be, and as for unprofessional your lucky i never reported your friends for drunk driving as you work for the corrections department you of all people should know PROFESSIONALISM

    Owner/manager responds:

    We had informed you not to leave food out other than inside the refrigerator as there could be ants from previous tenants children leaving soda spills all over kitchen which had attracted ants, which I had cleaned up as best as possible given the arrival dates of your booking. We couldn't get industrial strength bug cleaners as the home would have been out of action for your stay. Had we been made aware of other problem we could have rectified them and made your stay more pleasurable
