We visited the Piha Beach-stay before giving a deposit to the owner. What we saw was a fantastic building in a breathtaking location. The Kitchen was tidy and the rooms at a glance were good too. What a shame that when we moved in a few days later the kitchen was a real mess, lots of washing up, so much that it was impossible to fill a kettle. This remained the same till after 9pm. No on asked the other guests to clean up after themselves. The bedding was clean but the room was not. It needed sweeping and the bathrooms had sand on the floor. The cherry was that another guest went in our room when we were making a cup of tea and took one of our towels. We decided to leave. We had paid Bed and Breakfast prices and expected a clean room, tidy shared kitchen and a safe environment. So sad as this place could have been idyllic.
