Can’t believe this property ever got a negative review! The view is amazing, all the mod cons... loved just hanging on the deck watching whakaari and the birds over the ocean. Would love to come back some day!
Thanks Amy , you are for sure welcome back!
Thanks Bianca and welcome back any time!
Peace & quiet in a stunning location.
The second stay was just as enjoyable and delightful as the first time.
Hasn't the olive tree done well!
Thank you Geoff, glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes the olive tree has grown! Welcome back again any time.
This place has a million dollar view and is secluded.
We had to do a fair bit of cleaning upon arrival, as things such as the vent a hood was very dirty and moving stuff on the counter tops had bugs and other various particles behind.
Both bedrooms are extremely hot. The bottom bedroom could use a fan also, as we could not leave the doors open or cracked after we were warned of potential possum visits. The side windows in this room do not provide much air when open.
Took two days to get a shower curtain to cover the "picture window" in the shower. I did not notice this feature in the listing, I realize it is remote, but still not something we were comfortable with.
The furnishings especially in the living room are in need of replacement. The couches are thread bare on the cushions and falling apart. Get some slip covers if you are going to continue to use these couches that could be washed and adequately cover the wear and tear.
If you are coming from out of the Country and intend on "venturing out" to various day trips it is a minimum of an hour and a half to things such as Roturua. This place is ideal if you are looking for peace and quiet away from it all. As the only sound you hear is the beach and the birds. Though the beach is really only accessible by car or a VERY steep walk up the road to the house.
We appreciate your feedback, and we're sorry you didn't have an optimal stay!
Cleaning is of course important to us and we'll do what we can to double-check the cleaning between guests.
Regarding the bedrooms it's a pity you slept with all the folding doors closed - they provide a great cool airflow in summer and possums have never entered the house.
We realise our shower is really special, and though most guests love it, it is not for everyone. There should always be a curtain available in the bathroom cupboard which I understand you could not find. Sorry about that and we'll improve the information on where to find it.
Finally we agree that the road down the hill to the beach is steep (though it's definitely walkable). Again, we will try to improve the information on the site for others.
Thanks again for the feeback and enjoy the rest of your stay in New Zealand!
Cheers Simon and Jenny
This place really is a home away from home...just in a far more stunning setting!! From games, to water toys, even super sharp kitchen knives, it was all there! Surrounded by natural bush, a breathtaking view of the ocean, we revelled in the sounds of nothing but waves and birds!
The one thing we missed was a fan for the top bedroom, as it got really hot.
This really was the most amazing bach! Thank you for sharing it with us!! The Wilford Family
Thanks Eileen! Glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for the input regarding the fan. We'll make one available in the future.
Outstanding property 😃beautiful beach home. Welcoming to family or friends 😃a hidden treasure 😎
A well deserved five night stay with my husband and our three children. The property is just amazing with everything you need to accommodate you’re family. All the extras and beach views. Staying on top of a ridge hill, is quite friendly people near by. The weather and scenery will not be taken granted for. To the owners of the property we thankyou for allowing myself and family to stay. 💯 satisfactory😃much respect and we will come stay again in the future👍🏾
Thanks for your review! Welcome back any time.
Simon, Margo and Sandee
Though Homeaway has placed the location of the house under the 'Ohope area', please note that the house is in Bryan's beach/Waiotahi which is near Ohiwa and is approximately midway between Ohope and Opotiki.
