The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The house was spacious, quiet (except for the roosters!) and beautifully tiled. We were quite comfortable staying there in the end. However, it was not quite as advertised nor ready for our arrival. The refrigerator didn't work, some of the beds weren't made, some of the sheets were dirty, and it was closer to a 15 minute walk to the beach rather than 5 as advertised. The kitchen was easy to use and well equipped.
The local manager, Victoria, was kind and responsive, and did what she could to help us out, bringing in a cooler and ice on the 2nd day and a new refrigerator on the 3rd day.
I stayed with my mother for 14 days. It was a colorful and beautiful studio.
It was a bit out of town and we could look down on the city lights on one side and see the mountains on the other. Hiking, birds, and beautiful smells coming off the desert.
Limited water, but we never ran out. Also it tasted good, well water. 5 gal hot water tank but that was also not an issue.
Wendy and Phillip were courteous hosts. And there was a lovely backyard.
The road in was a bit bumpy, the last little bit was unpaved, but easy to find, and we made it easily in an economy car.
All in all a lovely friendly city. A great experience.
The room was very large much larger than I had imagined from the photograph. It has its own bathroom with a very pretty sink cold water only though the shower and the kitchen sink both have hot and cold).
Wendy was very nice. She stayed up late to let us into the room even though we didn't get in until after 10 pm.
It backs up to beautiful mountains and both nights we were there we had amazing sunsets.
Wendy's cottage, with the dessert sun and the views of the mountains, is absolutely beautiful, and we loved our stay. The cottage is separated from the house by a large garage, and felt very private. Wendy was a great host: available if we needed her, helpful (e.g. when American Airlines decided not to include our luggage on the airplane and therefore had to deliver it the next day), but eager to let us have our space.
In case you are arriving at the end of a long day of travel and planning to cook, do know that the nearest grocery store is just about twenty minutes drive each way.
Wendy was an excellent and very friendly host. The space was enormous, well appointed and very comfortable. It is out in the country so the final mile or so is on rough roads, but worth it to be in such a beautiful environment.
After a long day on the road, Wendy's studio cottage was a breath of fresh air! It was exactly what we needed - in a safe, beautiful location (it's in an amazing part of the desert!), her cottage was clean, warm and very comfortable. We arrived late, and Wendy was more than inviting and showed us to our lovely studio cottage for the night. Thank you so much for accepting us at such short notice!
Wendy was a fantastic host. She was able to provide some excellent hiking recommendations in the area, all of which were within a 20 min drive. The location has a great view of a mountain range, with views of the sunset and sunrise. The place itself is surprisingly large, the pictures don't do it justice. The bed was super comfy, and I felt right at home.
It was definitely cute and large. Be aware that it's in a remote area, but very quiet, nice hikes in walking distance, and 20 min drive to town.
Wendy's cottage was way bigger than I expected and was furnished quite nicely. Outside, there's a great view of the nearby mountains during the day and an amazing view of the stars by night. You would do well to follow the given directions - our GPS claimed the cottage's road would connect with the road we were on, but it ended abruptly. Due to that, we ended up spending a fair bit of time on the local dirt roads (not that we minded, it was pretty fun).
A1 guests. Only here overnight but everything perfect.
Wendy and Phillip were welcome guests, friendly and personable, eager to taste what Dunedin had to offer. I would thoroughly recommend them.
Wendy, her husband and her two grown up boys stayed for a few days while visiting Sydney. A delightful group and thank you for inviting me for a very delicious roast dinner. I would recommend to other Airbnb hosts who Wendy would like to stay with total confidence..
We really enjoyed having Wendy & Phillip stay. Great guests to share a glass of wine and travel stories with. They were polite way gong and respectful of house rules and booking proceeded with out a hitch. Highly recommended
Wendy was a PERFECT guest; self sufficient, conscientious and easy! We highly recommend her!
It was a pleasure to host Wendy and her husband Phillip. I hope our paths cross again in the future. I look forward to their return to the Big Island!
