the property is very spacious and modern with everything you need. considering the price and the additional cleaning fee the presentation wasnt up to scratch upon our arrival (including a decaying bird left on the balcony) but the staff are very quick to respond and offer to fix the issues.

Great spot, tons of potential, imperfect execution

  • 3 of 5

This house has a lot to love. Pleasant location, four bedrooms, comfortable beds, lots of style in lots of areas of the house. And the ping pong table is good for hours of entertainment (on a rainy Rotorua day) if you're into such things. The kitchen also has a great deal of dinnerware, which was helpful.

And you get a lot of house for the money, which is really nice. It's big and comfortable, which is great.

That said, there are things other prospective guests should know. The bedrooms are lovely. But none of them have enough storage space for clothes. All of the closets in all of the bedrooms are locked. So there's no place to hang clothes. In fact, there's not a clothes hanger in the entire house. And in the one small dresser in the master, the tracks are gone for two of the drawers, so they don't work. What results is your stuff is all over the floor in the bedrooms because they're no place to properly store clothes. It's odd for a house that could otherwise be a great match for long-term vacationers.

A few things didn't work right or work at all. The oven didn't work, one of the burners on the stove was malfunctioning, and a toilet seat was falling off (revealing just how filthy the harder-to-clean parts of the toilet were). We contacted property management and would hope those things get fixed before the next guests.

The place was generally very clean but, in spots, quite dirty. For instance, the top of the bead-board rail in the upstairs bathroom appears to never have been cleaned. Same with the top of many of the baseboards. They were pretty bad. There is a kitchen cabinet that is packed with random used supplies but not particularly clean. It's not clear if those items are there as a courtesy to guests or because someone actually lives in that house.

Then the kitchen, while generally a pleasant place to be, is quite peculiar to live with for days. There were only two dish towels, and they were in the condition of shop rags. Frustrating. While there are tons of plates, and tons of flatware, there is a strange shortage of basic drink ware (ample wine glasses but no water glasses, for instance).

Would I discourage anyone from staying at this house? No. It's stylish and pleasant. But it's one that doesn't quite live up to the photos. That said, i think most of what's going on with it would be easy fixes, and I hope the property managers tackle them, so this lovey spot lives fully up to its potential.
