There is no TV and no Internet. (Not even a radio!) We understand that electricity costs are very high on Stewart Island, but we would have gladly paid a daily rate if internet had been available. The driveway is not paved. It is very steep and there are then several stairs leading up to the unit. You must be very fit to stay here. If it rains you must also be very careful not to slip and fall. There is construction on the house next door. The work was constant, even on Sunday and even after dark. The builders park in the Baywatch driveway and are coming and going throughout the day. It was very noisy and very disruptive. As we were walking down the hill, one of the builders almost hit us with his car! He was going way too fast and did not look out for us! Very scary!! The unit was not super clean either. The carpet had not been vacuumed very well and there were stains on the duvet. The good parts of this unit were the view of Half Moon Bay and the Kaka that came to visit us every evening.
Fiona was a great host, picked us up from the ferry and gave us some good tips for stuff to do on the island. There isn't heaps of space but Baywatch is warm and very close to walk to town. Quite steep and some steps to get up to the house but this pays off with a beautiful view over the bay, either from the lounge or the outdoor picnic table. Cool to have Kaka come up to the deck too. We had a great stay, thanks for having us!

Comfortable accommodation with lovely view. Great location and view for a relaxing holiday - close to the township - hotel, cafe, museum etc and handy if you want to be more active and hires bicycles, take the ferry to Ulva Island and wander the local walking tracks. Not suitable for people who have a mobility issue - steep driveway and steps. Hosts friendly and helpful. The only things I would have liked are a bigger coffee plunger and stainless steel cooking utensils!
