“Beauty near the beach”
Reviewed 29 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

This is a lovely property with amazing views, good cooking and laundry facilities and plenty of space for a family of four. It is situated in a quiet, residential area and only 10-15 mins to the beach. Everything was spotlessly clean and there was a great selection of dvds and books for a relaxing evening in. My only request would be for a wifi connection as we were travelling around NZ and it would have been useful to do some research in the evenings and plan alternatives for wet days.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

“A perfect retreat!”
Reviewed 10 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We had an amazing time. It was perfect for my husband and I and our 2 year old daughter. It was so much bigger than I expected & had everything we needed plus more. The location was perfect so close to a beautiful beach & a cool cafe.

“A fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 9 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed at Grasshopper for 6 nights and really enjoyed all it had to offer. It is set amongst native bush but a short walk (10 minutes) to the beach and local cafes.
Highly recommended

“Fantastic accomodation, house was filled with sunlight . Home away from home”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Funky art adorns this home away from home from first moment you walk inside the door. Apex window in the high ceiling in dining room makes the place airy and light. Doors open to deck with bush views. Very private.
All amenities you need plus close to beach. Owners easy to communicate with. Definately would recommend to friends . Left feeling relaxed and refreshed!
