Good location and comfortable, but with rooms for improvement
The four of us stayed in this unit for three nights in late October. We used Hamilton as a base to make day trips to Hobbiton and Waittomo glowworm cave. The unit was in a quiet neighborhood. The beautiful Hamilton garden was only a few blocks away. The property has two living structures—one in the front and one in the back. There was a narrow drive way on the side of the front unit that led to a spacious carport between the two units. The rental was in the rear. As arrived, the drive way was partially blocked by over-grown bushes. Passable, but they scratched the car. Inside, we found the lawn not mowed and a couple of deck chairs fell sideways on the lawn. Adjacent to the carport, there was a half collapsed empty tin tool shed that looked junky. They fixed the problems on the second day. The unit itself looked new and clean. The big room in the middle had a living room in the front section and kitchen and dinner table in the back. Two bedrooms are on the two wings of this big room. The living room had a TV on the left and couches on the right. No coffee table though. The kitchen was adequately equipped with new appliances. No range hood. There was a washer and dryer inside the closet next to the kitchen. We could not find washing powder, which they supplied the next day. The big room had a ductless heater/AC. It was quiet and made the big room cozy. But the two bedrooms had no head/AC and we had to leave the bedroom doors open to get some heat in. It wasn’t effective though and we felt cold at night. The two bedrooms were identical. Beds were comfortable and rooms were clean. The size of the room was somewhat small. There was only room for one end table, with a small lamp. One of the rooms had no light bulb inside and we found a blown bulb next to the TV. It was not replaced before we left. The bathroom looked new and fresh. The shower stall was spacious. There was no vanity light above the sink. The only light source was the two heat lamps which provided both light and heat. It worked fine for us, although I think the room might get hot in the summer. They provided a small bottle of hair shampoo and conditioner, and a small hand soap, for two people three nights. I voiced the inadequacy to the manager. They supplied more the following day, but not before telling us there was another soap in the other bathroom. Odd.
Overall, I think the location is great. Interior is new and generally comfortable. But there are rooms for improvements.
Cosy little place in the burbs
Great spot close to town, the gardens and in and out of Hamilton by the highway. Sunny little deck to rest your feet after a long day exploring. Enough space for friends who appreciate privacy.
Very good for our needs but no tea towels and no salt in the condiments tray (plenty of cracked pep
No salt in the condiments tray and no tea towels were a hindrance to our stay as we were cooking in house.Also one bathroom wasnt cleaned adequately but the other one was.
Nice, tidy house
Nice, tidy house. Had everything we needed to be comfortable. Thanks!
Home from home, but tidier!
An excellent property. Everything we need. We have stayed here before and planned our trip to Hamilton around the dates this unit was free. We hope to stay again. Thanks so much.
