All you can ask for
As is. We had a great stay
Home away from home
Very warm cozy house , has everything you need.
We liked that we could take our own linen etc and clean the bach ourself to save on the nightly fee
Would stay again
Thank you 💕
South Bay Hideaway
Had a great 2 night stay in this property. South Bay is a lovely location.
Would only add that the property would benefit from a good spring clean.
Enjoyed it had everything we needed, as listing
Great place, everything you need at a batch.
Nice quiet location
Quiet spot out of the ‘busy, busy’ of Kaikoura. Enjoyed our stay here but disappointed with the cleanliness. The Bach needs a thorough springclean and this should be done on a regular basis. I cleaned up what looked like a year’s dust and grease off the cabinet below the tv because I couldn’t stand it anymore.
AND then to find no toilet paper! I have stayed in many baches in NZ and there was always a supply in the cupboard. No mention about bringing your own. Luckily I had my emergency roll in the car!
Hi Lyn I'm sorry to read there was no toilet paper - my apologies as we usually have a large supply at the Bach - it was a shame you did not contact me at the time as I would have ensured some was dropped into you Please note as stated on the check in information please contact us if there is any issues
Bach not clean
We realised this was an older budget style bach, but it was let down by poor cleanliness. Judging by the floor, previous guests had not swept or vacuumed the floors, stove top and bench was dirty, and there were food stains in the kitchen cupboards beside the coffee cups. The toilet seat had spots of urine and hairs stuck to it and the shower curtain was also dirty. The duvets are very old and the cover appeared to have not been washed for some time. On the plus side it's in a nice spot, close to the sea in South Bay.
We also appreciated the early check in - thanks!
We are very disappointed with this review. What astounds us is these guest were able to email us with a request for an early check in (we allowed this family to check into the Bach 5 hours early) but when they found our Bach not up to standard due to the previous people not cleaning it to a good standard they don't bother to contact us so we could have an opportunity to fix the situation rather they leave a poor review on this site that damages us. As they were aware under Bach tradition it was expected that the people staying would clean the Bach not us however we would have paid for a local cleaner to go and clean up the mess that they say was left. I hope they think in the future before they leave such negative feedback on these sites as this could all have been resolved without them hurting our credibility as host because if we do not know there is a problem at the time we are unable to fix it - they had both our contact numbers and our email address. Giving us a 2 star review is I believe really unfair.
