We enjoyed the bach with its beautiful view across the harbour. It was well appointed and quiet, wish we could have stayed longer! Hope to come back in the future. Many thanks Janet and Murray
Comfortable with a great view
We enjoyed our stay and would come back again.
Stunning views, great beaches and location, sadly let down by overall presentation of the bach.
The property has clearly not been maintained nor has the level of previously attested cleanliness.
Examples regarding maintenance include the damaged deck sliding door, holes in the bedroom walls, broken kitchen drawer handle (now fixed), broken bathroom sink plug (now fixed) to the blown light bulbs in the stove extractor fan and living room ceiling.
This is the fourth bach we have stayed at on our trip so far and the other three were exemplary in both presentation and cleanliness.
In terms of cleanliness we spent two hours on our arrival cleaning all the dirty surfaces in the kitchen and living rooms. - the bench tops, fridge, sand off the furniture, dried food off the dining room chairs and dirt off the placemats.
We started hand washing the dishes, cutlery and utensils to remove the dried on food but gave up and put the whole lot through the dishwasher while scrubbing out the cutlery container and drawer to return the cleaned items.
The inside of the refrigerator and freezer and all the cupboards were grubby with food debris.
The bathroom and toilet mirrors were too dirty to see yourself in (now cleaned). The bedroom fan was full of dust balls.
The BBQ was too dirty to use, the oven when turned on was so dirty that the entire living area was filled with the rancid smell of baked on food. On first use of the cast iron pans one was so dirty it 'smoked out' the living area.
To add insult to injury the property instructions specified that it is the NZ tradition to leave a bach clean and requested us to do so!
It was obvious that the state of this property in terms of grime and dirt were long standing and had not just been "left" by the previous tenants.
At least the sheets and towels were clean even though the duvet was covered in dog hair!
Given the above I am seeking a refund of the monies paid and an apology for the state of the property.
Good location. Well appointed property
Nice and tidy. Good location
Lovely Bach with a stunning view and great location for exploring the Hokianga.
We stayed on a rather wet weekend but still enjoyed lying with a glass of wine in the recliners as the sun peeped out on occasions through the clouds.
We had a great walk along the headland from the lookout point and as far along the beach as the tide would allow.
Trip by boat over to the sand dunes we had been looking at was a definite highlight. The sun shone and the walk over the top to the rock formations and back along the beach from the west coast stunning!
We returned to Whangarei the long way round exploring the Hokianga as we went.
Can recommend the Thai restaurant at the I.Site in the evening.
Very comfy Bach especially the bed !!
