Lovely View - quiet, relaxing but very basic
Positives: Great communication with property manager, beautiful view - relaxing to sit and watch, loved the binoculars, peaceful and quiet with hardly anyone around. The futon couch ended up being a life saver as a place to sit. The linen and bedding was clean. The washing machine worked well.
Negatives: extremely basic, lots of bugs - ants everywhere, shower is terrible, bbq took ages to get going then even longer to cook on, the queen bed was ok, the singles were not that great, the tv took a while to get working, we went to watch a couple of dvds and noticed they weren't in their cases. The white couch was not very comfortable and was quite dirty. It is a 1960's batch that hasn't really had much done to it, so the carpets are worn and tired. You have to remove all your rubbish, we found the transfer station which was close by but first time it was closed, that would have sucked if you missed it before leaving and had to take all your rubbish with you.
To summarise, if you are looking for a fishing escape and have a boat this would be great. Alternatively, if you are looking for somewhere to crash at night and travel during the day and aren't that fussed with modern luxuries it will be fine. Our intention was to sightsee, fish off the beach and come home and relax - the problem was it was just a little too basic for us. Fishing off the beach didn't produce anything. There are some amazing beaches, truly beautiful which we loved but with restrictions and accessibility issues, a boat would be best. We did enjoy our trip but honestly wouldn't stay again as its just too basic, we were dying to get home to our shower and beds which was nice as it made us appreciate the little things. Each to their own, for some people this will be a great fishing/boating crashpad just not for us.
Will definitely return
Will definitely return. So peaceful and relaxing. Will just love some Wi-fi to keep my only child busy
Great Stay and Great Getaway
My wife and I had a lovely stay here. Everything was pretty basic but it was perfect as a place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle. The view was spectacular with nice beaches and town nearby.
Can’t get enough of that view and was so comfortable and had everything we needed for a family with two pre-schoolers. Absolutely loved the area, will definitely return again!
Fabulous views over Tokerau
Really enjoyed our stay here. Stunning views. Clean, comfortable accommodation with everything we needed. Warm, sunny weather. Couldn't ask for more really. A great stay 😊
Was a nice and relaxing getaway, enjoyed the simpleness of our stay, a rest and recharge experience that did the trick. The view was outstanding! Thank you :)
The Karikari peninsular is surrounded by fantastic beaches, amazing views and the salt water fishing is exceptional.
