  • It was a fantastic stay. We really enjoyed it. The place was well equipped and very comfortable. The hosts - Diane & Gordan were fabulous and perfect. This is the best accomodation we found with reasonable price and superb home made breakfast. We will surely be returning here and referring to friends and family. A++++++++++ Ashok and Raziya 5

  • The stay for two day was just ok...the couple were friendly when we arrived.the lady showed us the mop as soon as we entered the room to wipe the floor if we wet it!!shocking!!Next morning breakfast was late and the lady cleared my plate while i was still eating!!horrible!! Later on we were told by the lady not to sleep under the duvet since its hard for her to do washing!!!there was no privacy at all since the lady kept coming in the room without asking and even checked my feet for dirt before i entered the house that evening!! she was being very GRUMPY and made us feel very uncomfortable. ..She didnt even allow us to use the laundry facilities.Gentleman was very friendly and helpful and the view was great...wont be going back ever!! 1

  • It is good to get peoples responses to our service and we do take notice of it. Firstly when guests have never stayed at a B & B before and not used to the concept of a "wet bathroom" we endeavour to show them the manner in which to use the facilities. Indeed on Saturday evening when they went to dinner we had to take the equivilant of a bucket of water from the floor in the bathroom and spa room that they left with the floor awash. Breakfast was not late on Saturday, they ordered it at 9.30 and then they were still late and on Sunday they were an hour early, but we were ready for them. As to the laundry, we offered to do their washing for them and they declined the offer. All we asked was that when people come up from the beach, that they wash the sand off their feet in the place provided outside. By the way they spent 2 hours driving around Whitianga trying to find us and even drove past our large outside sign as they left the details of where they were staying in Auckland
