We stayed at Carpe Diem to sleep four extra family members and have breakfast there daily. The instructions given prior to our arrival from the owner left us feeling uneasy. Our stay was pleasant and we left the house in an immaculate condition to be challenged via a phone call from the owner on our return home about taking a fridge rack which we definitely did not do. The experience was not positive. We will not be returning.
Response from Owner
We are really surprised with this persons review and feel a little gutted that they have made these comments, which didn’t in our opinion reflect what they emailed to us the day they left the property. The following is word for word what they emailed me after leaving the property. " Thank you Anthony, Wonderful weekend at Okiwi with our family! Great fishing and weather! We will be back" Then I received a second email the same day: "Anthony it was clean and I left it sparkling Don’t think your cleaner will have much to do!! We would love it again next year 5 th to 8 th Feb Do you require a deposit or can you pencil me in? It is a long way off. So much can change in a year! Thanks" A peace in the fridge is missing we asked the renter about this and she admitted that they removed a pieces out of the fridge to fit more in the fridge. We were merely asking if it was taken in error or was it placed somewhere else in the house that we missed. She has quickly taken offence to this and that is reflected in her above comments we feel. For the record we only want people to stay in this property who feel like they can relax and enjoy the property and we are disappointed that this person didn't feel like they could relax and enjoy their stay. Please read our other feedback to get a balanced view.
Had a great stay here with our family. The deck is great and the kitchen was very well set up. Made good use of the bbq and appreciates the three bathrooms. Only a 5min walk to a beach, maybe 10min walk to the boat ramp. Sting rays were a great find too, would definitely recommend to others
