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.
Great place to stay
Loved South Bay, this bach is in a great spot. Really well laid out and equipped with all you need. Mr 6 was expecting a tramp and bunk beds from the images online, but we went down to the ocean (super close) and he forgot about that real quick! Would def stay again.
Hi Miriam Thanks for your review I'm sorry there was no tramp as it was damaged recently when there was a big wind We have now updated the photos showing a new tramp we purchased and put up along with updated photos of the second bedroom I'm happy for you to stay a night free when you next wish to visit Kaikoura
Pleasant family stay
Adequate facilities including a generous kitchen. But online photos a bit dated and bunk beds were replaced with a double bed. Peaceful backyard compensates for the lack of view. Handy to beach on foot and 5 mins to town by car. Completed full cleaning as requested but cleaning fee in addition was a negative.
Hi Peter I'm not sure I understand what you mean in regards to being charged a cleaning fee??? We did not charge a fee and never do as with all people staying they are required to clean it before departure. This part of the review is incorrect!
Clean and tidy kiwi Batch.

Great wee stop warm and cosy will definitely go bac. 👍
