We stayed again at this lovely property from 23.12.2015 to 3.3.16. Everything is to a high standard and since our stay 26.12.14 to 8.3.15 the carpets and nets have been replaced. Nothing is too much trouble to the owner who is approachable. Everything that is needed for a short or long stay is in the property. Beachlands, Howick, Botany are only a short drive away. My husband and I highly recommend this property and will certainly stay there again if we return to New Zealand.
Stayed 26.12.14 - 07.03.15. Fantastic place to stay. An extremely well equiped and very comfortable holiday home. Very pleased to have found such a lovely place and should we be lucky enough to return to New Zealand again next year my husband and I will definately stay here again. Very highly recommended.

Hi Bob and Linda, very nice to meet you both. Thanks for the comments. Looking forward to seeing you next time. Take care. Sandy 09/03/2015

Nice enough apartment but certainly not 'hidden away' as a house with family is only metres from the front door and driveway is also shared. Thankfully, neighbours were not an issue, but it was not what we were expecting for "romantic hidden away on rural property". Despite booking about eight months in advance, we were not told until we arrived that we could not use the spa bath due to "drought conditions" which was disappointing as we'd specifically booked the apartment due to the fact it had a spa.
Response from Owner
Dear Lee & Greg, As you could possibly understand clearly, Auckland had the driest summer in 50 years in 2013 when you arrived in Feb 2013. we explained to you about that and you were fine with no spa at that time. To be honest, Auckland was at emergency during those draught days. we simply could not predict the draught 8 months later while you booked in advance. In terms of the property, we stated clearly in advertising: this villa/apartment is part of the 4.5 acres rural lifestyle. the main house is about 80-100 meters away from this villa. but both have privacy as other guests commented. If you had asked us while you booked, we could have explained to you what it is. It clearly you made presumptions in many ways knowing you have not been on the rural lifestyle before. although we had 13 emails discussion, you finally paid the small deposit to secure the booking in the high season. Anyway it was nice to meet you both. If you had been upfront, we might have explained to you while we met. Thanks for staying. Sandy
