Nice little place. Close to the beach. Great stay thank you.
I am pleased to announce that all of the problems above have been rectified, better beds, fresh linens and new pillows, the water had been tested and is ok to drink, the bore water is not but this does not go to the house tank and is only used as a wash down. The linen service does not include making of beds as some people think that they have been slept in already when made up.
My family of 8 adults and 2 kids aged 5 and 8 stayed at Ahiparadise for 3days/2nights in December 2015. We find it's a charming and unique house with it's A-frame. The grounds are huge, spacious for the kids to run around. The location is fantastic as it's very near the beach with beach views from the house's conservatory. We feel however that the fixtures badly need updating and overall cleanliness can be improved. Let me share the specifics: 1. The sleepout which would have slept 4 persons was not really fit for sleeping. The place was full of cobwebs and smelled musty and old. The mattresses smelled old and were sunken and weren't very comfortable. The linens were also not placed on the mattresses. We thought this little task could have been done as part of the rate we paid given we drove 7 long hours to get there and just wanted a clean, comfortable place to stay after a long drive. 2. All of my familly members complained of itchiness when we slept. I think there may have been significant amount of dustmites in the linens and mattresses. When I opened one of the linen bags, I saw a small spider came out which made me wonder how long the linens stayed there. 3. I like the green initiative of getting rain water to supply water needs to the house. The disadvantage however was when we first used the water it smelled horrible and this could be because the water from the tank stayed stagnant for very long or I am not sure if the smell came from the unused water pipes. 4. It was also difficult for us to use the water due to separate taps for hot and cold water. I believe it's a safety hazard due to potential scalding. I believe a water mixer can be added for the safety and convenience of guests. 5. The shower lacked water pressure and we couldn't really make the "warm" setting work as the water pressure was low and became too hot for use. 6. I slept upstairs in one of the single beds and the mattresses on both beds were sunken and smelled old, which didn't aid in a good night's sleep. 7. The TV rack is full of white dust and occasional cobwebs. Overall cleanliness in the house can be improved. Suggestions for Improvements: 1. Update the sleepout to make it more liveable and comfortable for guests as it contains 1 double bed and 2 bunks and can sleep 4. 2. Replace mattresses, pillows and linens with new ones to remove the old smell and sunken state of mattresses. 3. Add a water mixer to get the proper water setting and avoid scalding. 4. Inspect why the water smells funny and put a solution in place. For a marginally higher rate we paid, we got a very beautiful and clean accommodation in Queenstown but unfortunately didn't get the same in Northland (Ahipara).
Response from Owner
I am pleased to say all has been rectified, the beds have been replaced, the pressure has been increased which has eased the water mixer problem, the water had been tested and is ok to drink, the bore water is not but this does not go to the house tank, it is for wash down purposes only. The house has been given a top to toe extra clean, the cleaner was unaware to clean inside the TV cabinet. All the linens have been freshened up and we have replaced old pillows with new. We have recently taken over this property and because it was a holiday home before, we thought it was set to go. We are keen to continue to improve as we discover any new issues.
