It was too good to stay there.

  • 4 of 5

It was too good to stay there..the location is awesome...and the cottage is beautiful and the view from it also eye catching....i should have given 10 on 10 points but deducted two points ans one star as the cottage is about 200m up from the road....so accessing to the cottage regularly was a bit tough for my parents.....but overall it was a very good experience living there..

Owner's Response: Thank you for the good review. It's a minor disappointment when a "Five Star" Review is scaled back for a factor we can't change (Steep Driveway) :)- Please note that the Cottage is at the top of a very steep 200 metre driveway and that a reasonable level of fitness is required for access. Refer many photos showing the steep driveway and the steps up to the Cottage. We have five alternative properties on Mount Hobson with easier access. :)- Enjoy NZ.

We enjoyed staying at the bach -it was just perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the bach -it was just perfect for us. We really loved having some outside space with both the lovely garden and the park behind the house. We enjoyed being able to nip over the hill and get a bus rather than having to fret about parking in the city. It was also good to be able to do your own cooking and not have to eat out every night. Would recommend this place highly and would definatley use it again for further Auckland trips.

Owner's Response: Guests from hell. Checked with them several times during their stay - they said all OK. They left stealing knives, forks, plates, internet cable etc etc. (Petty thieves). Even when leaving they said they really enjoyed their stay. Hmmm....... Please refer other feedback from guests. Please refer our website: www.mounthobson.com Only warning sign was trying to extract payment - our terms were cash upon arrival - if not happy they could have moved on without paying with blessings.

Lovely bach!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely bach! The location was great situated between New Market and Remuera very central but we could still hear the birds singing and have a rest in the city. We would definitely like to stay there again!
