Alan & Lyn couldn't have been more helpful. We arrived into Auckland Airport on an early overnight flight from Melbourne.When we arrived at the bach Alan & Lyn gave us breakfast and allowed to rest in their home as it was too early to check in as the previous guests had not left and Lyn need to clear the place before handover. Can recommend Lyn's homemade bread and marmalade.Fantastic views!

Management response:

You were very welcome! We know that those awful early flights leave weary travellers in need of a restful place and we are happy that we can provide that. Some arrive and immediately sleep, others have a cuppa and off they go, leaving their bags safely with us. We would like to be treated the same wherever we travel on...

The bed was perfect, soft silky linen atop of a wonderfully supportive yet supremely comfortable bed. We awoke in the morning to the smell of freshly baked bread at our doorstep. The breakfast of free range bacon and eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms with the delicious fresh bread and freshly squeezed orange juice was a wonderful way to start...

Many Guests INTEND to give feedback once they return home, but life is busy and words are cheap. To fully review shows commitment, genuine respect and enjoyment. Kind regards and good luck with your...
