Amenities & Room:
The kids enjoyed the lounge/cinema room
that said that all cooking had to be done outside on the BBQ
Perhaps this is something that ought to be mentioned in the listing?
This is the ultimate location for outdoor living - big covered bbq area extensive outdoor seating and tables / chairs for sitting outdoors
The owner provided some nice little extras - milk chocolate etc which was a lovely touch
The rooms are very clean and well presented and
Great selection of DVD's Nice people Just a bit perplexed after arriving and finding an awesome kichen set-up with a sign above it
the hosts were helpful and respectful of our privacy
The movie room was a hit with the kids and everything was clean and tidy
Nice property with some quirky touches that make it a classic Kiwi holiday location
The place was fantastic for a family of 5 in the summer - sadly for us the west coast turned on the rain tap and the downpour was amazing
I'm not good at BBQing pasta
The property is quirky a bit more of a motel setting than a house
A great location to base yourselves on the coast
The enormous entertainment room is very quirky and a lot of fun We would recommend this location for anyone who enjoys the good life
Nice place to stay not far from main drag but far enough that you hear native birds (and the odd chain saw) rather than traffic
