Nice house

This 4 bedroom house is very beautiful. Spacious modern and clean. It has full kitchen with utensils, coffee machine, refrigerator, oven, microwave oven, washer and dryer, etc. Has a very nice and spacious living room, dining room, patio and BBQ facility. Well kept. Nice for family vacation. Not far from the beach and grocery stores and restaurant. The Indian restaurant “Chad” delivers food to the house. Delicious food. Also, nice couple that owns it.

A home Away from Home

Hosts made our families welcome and had everything perfectly ready for our stay. It was easy to get to accommodation from airport and ideally situated for activities on North Shore and further North with lovely beaches and shops nearby. The house was well appointed with everything we needed for our stay, like being at a home away from home. We were surrounded by bush and bird song and enjoyed the lovely large deck off the living area. Access was easy from the undercover carport into living area and with two bedrooms and bathroom on bottom story ideal for a less able person. The upstairs bedrooms and bathroom allowed each family group to have their own space while the open plan living made the most of communal times. Ideal for family holiday accommodation.

Pros: It was clean tidy and well appointed, good location and handy to shops and beaches. Also with four bedrooms able to accommodate our extended family.

Cons: More clarity around the deposit, bond and cleaning fee as I was not aware that they were all required as part of the tariff.

Very nice house!

The hosts were very friendly and helpful. They made us feel very welcome and showed us around. The house is very big and beautiful. The living room had warm colors and was very comfy. The kitchen had all ustensils we needed. The bathrooms were provided with soap, shampoo and conditioner. We really loved the huge purple bedroom. Everything was really clean. When the sun is out, you can sit on the Large deck, where is also a bbq. We really loved this please and would definitely stay here again!
