GUESTBOOK FROM PREVIOUS HOMESTAY LISTING:
What a wonderful, unique, eclectic place to stay! This is not a cookie cutter hotel with no personality or style. Why would you want to stay somewhere that looks like it could be anywhere? This is a home that is welcoming, fun, and interesting. Actually that describes the owner as well. He couldn't have been more hospitable. What a wonderful ambassador for New Zealand! The perfect host. He greeted us with warmth and friendliness...and after a 12 hour plane ride that was certainly appreciated! We traveled with my 91 year old Mom, who loved the comfort and having everything on one level. She even found several books to read while she was there. (She didn't get down to the beach...which we loved...too many steps, but splashed her tired feet in the pool while consuming some of the lovely fruit Mark left for us
I spent three months here. There are no superlatives adequate for describing Mark’s warmth, generosity, helpfulness, and hospitality. He regularly went out of his way to assist me with settling in and with making certain I remained comfortable.In addition to these positives there is an almost 180° view of the bay. The opposite shoreline provides a sparkling night-view which complements the stunning daytime-view.
This was our home away from home for the time that my family and I were in NZ. The home was perfectly located for us. We went for swims in the sea in the morning and dips in the pool in the afternoon. There's a lovely park and playground for little ones 2 minutes walk away with a flying fox! There are a few cafes, restaurants, takeaways and mom and pop shops dotted within 20-30mins walk away. The layout was very open and airy, with lots of windows and the sounds from the seaside makes us feel like we're definitely on holiday. The owner was very helpful with answering all our questions and welcomed us with opened arms. We loved our stay and hope to rent it again in the future!
