Great hosts and good location...great amenities

6/10 Good

This property is a room in a converted basement The steep stairs going down to the room would not be good for those with mobility issues. The foliage has not been trimmed and so the view is obstructed. There is smoking allowed on the property and the smoking drifted into our room and triggered my husband’s asthma. We felt this room was overpriced and the website is misleading when it is called a “lodge.”

6/10 Good

The host and hostess were great. It is important for guests to know these rooms are converted basement or lower floor rooms of a home. We felt the listing was misleading when it was called a “lodge.“ The bathroom lacked a few amenities as in enough shampoo and conditioner for two people and it would’ve been nice to have lotions provided. We would have appreciated an iron. An issue for us was cigarette smoking that was allowed on the property. My husband’s asthma was triggered from the cigarette smoking that was allowed in the front of the house which drifted into our room and caused us a problem. There are narrow stairs that lead down to the room and would be difficult for some who may have mobility issues. There is a trip hazard in the bathroom which the host pointed out to us. That needs to be remedied.

Great stay. Owners are lovely, property immaculate and really private. Very close to Paihia township, I would by far prefer to stay here than at one of the many motels/hotels in Paihia.
