Wonderful place and view of a lifetime!
This place is very unique with a view that does not quit. Lodging very clean, simple and very comfortable! It had everything that we needed. Jenny was super helpful in everything. Location is perfect to see everything but then go back to a super quiet place. Thank you for sharing your paradise!
Thank you for enjoying our piece of paradise.
Peaceful and beautiful view
We had a short stay but there is nothing like waking up to that beautiful view. We were lucky to be there while there were some swells and so the view was particularly gorgeous. Pictures don't do it justice. There were spades to use for the hot water beach and check in was very easy and straightforward with little signs pointing the way to the guest house once you get to the property. Highly recommend!
Thank you for visiting and for the lovely review.
A little bit of paradise!
What a beautiful & relaxing place to start our New Zealand travels. The view is truly amazing, our hosts very helpful & generous & we had all we could want for a happy couple of days. Experiencing the complete lifecycle of the Monarch butterfly on one beautiful plant was an added bonus!
Thank you it was a pleasure meeting you. All the best for your on going journey.
If you go to New Zealand, you must check this place out!!! Jenny was a fantastic host and the house was perfect! She met us on arrival and explained everything up front and adding in some local info for us! The house had the most amazing view!!! We didn’t want to go anywhere else in the area. We cooked our own meals (be sure to ask about where to stop for groceries as the local local markets don’t have much). The amenities were perfect for 4 adults. The beds were comfortable, the facilities were extremely clean and we had everything we needed. Jenny checked on us to make sure we had what we needed. There were 2 couples in our group and the accommodations were quite comfortable. We will be back when we have another trip to NZ! Beautiful! Thanks for everything Jenny and Chris!
Thank you. It was a pleasure to have you stay and enjoy our piece of paradise. Thankyou for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy also. You are welcome to return.
Not as comfortable as expected for a home stay. More like staying in a hotel
We stayed at several VBRO properties during our stay in NZ, our stay at Hot water Beach was our least favorite. The furnishings were extremely uncomfortable, the bed was super low to the floor and very uncomfortable, the couch and chairs left a lot to be desired for a night of lounging and watching a good movie. We stayed for 4 nights and were given 1 towel each for our entire stay. That would typically be ok if we had a washer and dryer but the home doesn’t come with that either. If you are staying near beaches you are going to want to wash your beach towels and swim wear, unfortunately we had to wash our towels and swimwear in the shower. We felt like everything was rationed out so it lasted for the 4 days only. The windows do not have screens which would typically be ok but there is a situation going on with wasps or hornets making a nest near the kitchen window , these hornets were constantly coming into our living space. The space is actually a garage that has been converted into rental space, this means the homeowners are right next door making you feel like you do not have the privacy you paid for.
I totally refute this review. These people are obviously trouble makers. They booked for one adult and two children and arrived with 4 adults. There are screens in each room but not on the French doors. There are no hornets only a harmless mason bee at this time. The bed is a normal height and often we get comments that it is the most comfortable nights sleep that they have had. The fact that we live next door is clear on the site and we assure privacy to our guests. The cottage is a purpose built dwelling not a garage conversation. I checked with the guests during their stay if they needed anything and they said they were all good. I mistakenly gave them a good review as I thought it was for another guest. In fact they left the cottage very dirty.
We go to great lengths to clean the cottage to an imaculate standard and do everything in our power to help our guests have an enjoyable time, this is very disappointing. Most guests are extremely happy but I guess you get all types. Maybe they were just having ‘a bad hair day’.
Great cottage, breathtaking views, privacy, yet right on Hot Water beach. Cant fault it! Simply awesome.
Thank you so much. It is our pleasure to help you enjoy.
