Great host and stay
The place was roomy, comfortable and stocked with some good bread and great jams. The hosts were friendly and helpful. I was a bit afraid that the place had only a hot plate (2 burners) and a small grill to cook on but I was wrong. They had an electric skillet, toaster, panini maker, water boiler and everything you would need to cook. The owners even offered for us to use their oven if needed. I would tell friends to stay here or come back in the future.
This was a beautiful peace and quiet place to stay. The owners are friendly.
Hi Ali. Thank you for your review. We enjoyed having you and your work associates. The flat was left in a neat and tidy condition. We look forward to your next visit. Regards shawn.
Lovely spot & great hosts
My family and I had a great time staying here. The place was very clean and well equipped, and the hosts were very welcoming but unobtrusive.
The kids enjoyed exploring the garden and, despite the owners living upstairs, we absolutely felt like we had our own space and privacy.
Very handy location: supermarket just up the road, and only a short drive to both the Mount and city centre.
Thank you for your review. We enjoyed listening to the piano playing (you were very good!) and seeing your happy kids making rock play areas in the garden was special. You are welcome back here anytime!
Great place to stay with family
A wonderful place for children to explore, lots of board games to keep them occupied. It had everything we could have needed.
Thanks for your review. It was a pleasure to host your lovely family.
Claire and Shawn made our stay extra special we can not rate them highly enough. This was a very special trip for our family; three generations travelling from the UK for my youngest son's wedding. The Dawsons set up is immaculate with many extra touches to make any family holiday comfortable and fun. Local guides with hints and recommendations, games, books, breakfast all coming with a pool and privacy. Would definitely recommend them! :)
Comfortable but dated.
Great neighbourhood and only 15 mins to town. Great Hosts-very helpful and friendly. We appreciated the fresh fruit, milk, jam, bread and cookies that were provided to us.
Hi Sandra. Thanks for the review. Enjoy the rest of your kiwi adventure. Regards shawn and clare.
