Location very close to Oamaru club, would be convenient if you need to go there. Easy to walk to Victorian precinct and public gardens. Handy to shops. We enjoyed the plums in the garden. The house was clean and well equipped. Some upkeep on the structure would have made the stay more pleasant.
Not sure what "upkeep" means - We presume that it was the wet weather preventing the lawn being mowed to very short - as up keep of the entire plan is always ongoing in regular maintenance done. This house is much improved from its original state with new roof - new paint - new carpet - new curtains etc.
Great location,walking distance to town and old town.The house was clean and tidy & well presented however little things could have been improved on for the price.There was only 1 roll of toilet paper for 5 people for 3 days. There was no oven mit or dish rack etc. An air bed was provided for our 5th person (3 yr old) which we were aware of however air bed kept deflating. The master bed was uncomfortable had roll together. Felt $159pn was expensive compared to other houses we stayed in.
Great location, nice and clean and lots of heaters/bedding to keep you warm. It is a little bit on the small side but well worth it. As it is on a main rd, you could hear the traffic but it wasn t too bad. All in all a great wee place, good ol kiwi Bach style.
