I stayed here for a few nights with a group of friends in the backpackers, what a lovely place, gardens were beautiful, the Owners were very helpful and friendly and lent us spades for hot water beach. The Backpackers had Free Tea and Coffee and was very clean and comfortable at a decent price. Freshly cut flowers in the communal...

BOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE THAT WON'T LEAVE YOU STRANDED!!! I booked for three people months out through the company's website so I know my reservation went directly to them. Received confirmation email same day as they had my credit card info. Not one....Not two....But over three business days later I receive an email from owners saying they overbooked & must cancel....

we have booked the garden lodge and were there for 4 nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we also enjoyed the lodge. There was plenty of space and a well equipped kitchen. As already written by some others, the bathroom might need a modernization but it was well cleaned, as the entire lodge was.

Fantastic place to stay, the hosts were truly lovely and welcoming. The rooms are very comfortable and the surroundings are very nice. It's a pity we had to leave in a hurry (Cyclone Cook), we would have loved to thanked the hosts properly. Thoroughly recommend.

We were in a motel unit which had a lovely outdoor area in a beautiful garden setting. The landscaping was impressive throughout the whole lodge. The units feel homely, beds comfy and the kitchen was well set up with everything you need. There was a Hibiscus flower each bed and the milk came in a white jug. It was a...

What a fantastic spot at Hahei Beach. We only had a short stop over of one night and found the Villa accommodation just so relaxing, peaceful, very well equipped and so comfortable. Wish we could have stayed longer!! Walking distance to the beach and the staff are so lovely. Thank you for having us we will definitely come again.

We (2 adults, 3 kids) stayed in the 2 bedroom unit with kitchen and were very surprised that everything was new and beautiful! Along with friendly customer service (they gave us a small pitcher of milk at check-in to have with tea/coffee in our room) and free wi-fi and parking, this was a great deal and I was not expecting...

We were in the Garden Cottage (three of us). It was really fantastic accommodation in a very beautiful area. Loads of room, a great living and cooking area and two bedrooms. There was a verandah and BBQ with sub-tropical garden space. It was the sort of place that elicits a 'wow' as you go in. Beautifully clean. Peaceful and quiet...

Let's start off that everyone loved their stay here. It's just a bit confusing to have the establishment listed with multiple names. Now down to the review. In a world of flat whites, there was a French Press in the room! 'Nuf said. Seriously, super friendly staff, terrific location, walking distance to good food, beer and beach. Perfect for a...

Great hotel with awesome owners. The hotel was clean and modern. The owners provided beach towels and spades (for hot water beach)... And made last minute dinner reservations for us. The location was close to shops, beaches, hikes... I wish we would have stayed another night or two We had a great time!
