Recent South Pacific property reviews

  • Like staying at a friend's house

    "I happily recommend this modern, clean and well-equipped property. It felt like I had taken over a friend's apartment for a week, because everything you could want in a vacation rental is here. Good computer connection, well equiped kitchen with all the extras provided to make a good meal (spices, flour, oil, etc.), comfortable bed, roomy shower. Very nice outdoor area too, with barbeque and outdoor table set. Excellent and friendly communications with the owner. A short walk to the bus into central Auckland (no transfers required, about 1 hour), or else bus and ferry. Howich itself a nice little village with decent restaurants, and a supermarket less than five minutes walk away."

  • Stunning views

    "Incredible view from the balcony/living area. Really spacious. Cottage a bit dated so it's got that musty smell. Contact tel. numbers not working so we had some anxious moments a few days leading up to the rental date but everything turned out as promised. E-mail messages were promptly addressed. Bottom line - we'll go back again if the opportunity arises. Can't beat the views, the space and the privacy it offers."

  • Exceeded all our expectations !

    "My husband and I stayed here for 3 weeks (Dec 2012 / Jan 2013) and will definitely return on our next visit to NZ. It was the perfect location for us ... an easy, 20 minute walk to the holiday park where our family have a caravan ... and a stunning, tranquil retreat to escape back to each evening. Our late evenings in the hot tub, admiring the starlit sky became a daily favourite. The owners went out of their way to make our stay memorable and as pleasant as possible. There is plenty to do in the area ... amazing walks / hikes, stunning beaches, national parks, boating, great wineries, good shopping ... something for everyone. I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone visiting the area."

  • Moorea's Best

    "Although we did not book this beautiful home, we visited the owners and toured the property. My wife and I have been to Moorea more than 20 times, each time staying there nearly a month, so we speak with experience. We have visited many private homes, major hotels, small hotels, and bungalows on Moorea. This home is, by far, the most beautiful that we have seen. The home has construction of the best quality, amenities and furnishings that are absolutely first class, gardens that are perfectly manicured, and a spa/hot tub that is optimally situated for privacy and vistas. But the very, very best feature of this otherwise perfect home is the magnificent panoramic view of Moorea's turquoise lagoon, the coral reef, and the Pacific Ocean. It is truly breathtaking. Summary: Very highly recommended. As a footnote, when we visited the owners for dinner and a tour of their home we recommended that they place their property on VRBO. The arrival date in the "REVIEW" is the date that we viewed the property."
