Frances, the renter (stayed in Jan 2012 for 7 nights) said:

Claires house was an absolute delight. Gorgeous location, amazing views and a great pool. On the negative side, the kitchen was not as well equipped as we had expected, the bedding was not quite adequate - no extra duvets or blankets just a duvet inner in the wardrobe - and one of the childrens beds was a thin foam mattress not a proper mattress and although there was a sleepout with more beds in it, it was too separate from our room given the childrens ages. We also felt the warnings about not splashing in the pool or using the bath owing to water loss were not quite fair as water can be brought in to fill the tanks and given the quality of the house and the tarrif, playing in the pool should be part of usual family enjoyment - within reason! But, there is no doubt this is a wonderful property with exceptional views and we had a fantastic time. We loved the decor and the extras like the book and magazine library, the array of childrens toys and most of all the sense of relaxation and luxury that the house has.

The owner responded:

Thank you for your comments. We are surprised at the feedback about the kitchen, it's the first time in 50 rentals we've heard any comments about this.Short of having wall to wall appliances, I'm not sure what else we could resonably provide in a holiday home. Everything is there for cooking, via 2 ovens, microwave, an outdoor BBQ - from casual outdoor entertaining through to a full blown roast dinner. A delivery of additional serving dishes, new saucepans and fry pans etc..and other kitchen equipment has just been made to the house in response to your general comment, although it's difficult to know what was actually 'not as well equipped as we'd expected' - but I've now provided extras of all the stuff that's already there. Additional quilt blankets have also been purchased to go on the ends of beds. Surprising perhaps in January, that normal bedding wasn't 'adequate'. Of course, there was also plenty of spare bedding, lovely goose-down quilts etc.. in the studio which could have been used in the main house - just a 10m bridge walk from the laundry, so not difficult to bring in a blanket or two if it had been required. Regarding the water conservation issues. We ask that people don't divebomb in the pool. This tends to send large waves of water over the infinity edge and exacerbate evaporation markedly. There's lots of other fun you can have without doing giant divebombs I'd hope! Water issues on Waiheke are a constant issue and with a pool of this size in such an exposed clifftop position, we ask our guests to be mindful of keeping the thermal cover on when the pool's not in use. Not unreasonable, given that evaporation in peak summer can cost more than $1,000 in water deliveries within a fortnight. Likewise with baths. There are 3 great showers in the house and studio. With a full house of 10, which is usually the case with this property, having baths would certainly impact on the water tanks rapidly - especially throughout the summer months. We put baths in the house before living there and fully understanding the reality of the water issues on the island. Most Waiheke properties don't have baths for exactly this reason. If people want to bath babies and young children, of course that's fine. But we just ask adults to use the showers - it's not a biggie.

Stunning holiday home. You are spoilt with beautiful views out over the bay then you turn your head and there are more stunning views over another bay and farm land in another direction. Beautiful decor. Lots of different spaces to relax in, magazines, books to read. The kids were busy with the Lego and we all had a wonderful time.

Beautiful property, however we rented the property for a private business brainstorming session (as we have done with other properties in the past) and made this clear on making the booking. Over the two days, we were interrupted multiple times by builders and other random cars coming up the driveway, we were also told on exit to take our rubbish with us.

The owner responded:

I apologise for the disruptions. Unfortunately our builder wasn't aware of your presence when delivering some materials, as I was overseas when your booking came in and our housekeeper wasn't aware he wanted to drop off some timber for some off-season maintenance work. This normally would absolutely not happen and we will ensure all those who help with our property check through a central point in future to ensure they do not disrupt any guests. There seems to have been some misunderstanding about rubbish/recycling separation. Our housekeeper did in fact take your mixed rubbish in the back of her car to sort out herself at her home into the required bags, so she remedied the situation very well.

Perfect for 8 adults, A wonderful few days in a beautiful spot. Weather was great which of course was the icing on the cake. Instruction manual does make one think why rent it if??? but also being from the hospitality industry I can understand the need to instruct folks in certain directions. This place has the no expense spared wow factor and Claire wants to share her love, not repair it. I understand. Thank you.
