Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Carol was a wonderful host. We stayed only one night, but both Carol and her husband were most gracious.

    March 2014
  • Carol and her husband were very friendly. They made us feel at home right away and gave us lots of information when we arrived. They also shared their experiences and stories with us during breakfast. The bedroom/bed was small for two people but very clean and tidy. Also we were given a large and luxurious private bathroom to use during our stay.

  • Carol and Gary are very welcoming and hospitable, the room and the bed comfortable and the bathroom was large, clean and well equipped. It 'a pleasure to spend an evening in a so cute place after traveling all day! Definitely recommended!

  • Carol and Gary were WONDERFUL hosts! I am so glad I happened upon their Air BnB ad. Their house is beautiful and comfortable and they make you feel absolutely at home. They are also really fun people to talk to, and their Italian exchange student Ema is a fun and sweet boy, too. I would highly recommend staying with them, especially if you are looking for a real Kiwi family experience.

  • I booked in late in the day and when I showed up at Carol and Gary's home, I was immediately welcomed in. Carol and Gary were very warm and friendly. Travelling on my own, it was nice to have a place where I felt like I was 'at home'. I enjoyed many conversations with both Carol and Gary. They are a lovely couple. I would highly recommend staying there. They have a large home. My room was sufficient with a single bed and desk. The large bathroom was great. Both hosts were helpful when I had some car problems.
    Their home is about a 10-15 minute drive to wonderful beach and shopping areas. They live in a nice neighbourhood. I would definitely stay there again. Thanks Carol and Gary.
