Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to bring?

You need to bring with you all linen (sheets, pillowcases, towels etc), and all personal items and food. We do not have a linen hire facility in Whangamata. All other bedding is supplied, all cooking facilities available, washing machines, BBQS etc are available in most places however we cannot guarantee that the bottle will have gas in it. We do ask owners to check their bottles before we rent the property but some forget. It’s the luck of the draw. Bottles can be filled in Whangamata at “Bubba’s”. There is a full list of chattels listed on each home listing.

Do I have to clean the house when I leave?

Short answer – yes. We inspect the homes before and after you leave, and expect it to be left as you found the property. For a small surcharge we can arrange a cleaner for you when you depart. Please make a note on your application form if you would like a cleaner.

What are the Peak Times?

Christmas, New Year, Beach Hop. These are times when there is extremely high demand, so expect to pay a little more than other times of the year, with minimum booking times.

What is the minimum number of nights I can stay?

This varies depending on the time of year.  We have a 2 night minimum regardless.  Because of the extremely high demand, Christmas/New Year is a 10 night minimum and Beach Hop is a 4 night minimum.

At Christmas and through New Year the rates can change. Here is a guide to the periods and minimum booking times:

Why rent a holiday home and not a motel or B&B?

Mostly at peak times all commercial accommodation in Whangamata and environs is fully booked months in advance. By renting a holiday home, you have the privacy and seclusion, just like being in your own home.  There are no interuptions by well meaning staff, no one looking at you from the next unit, you can eat when you want, and do what you want (within reason of course). All in all, it just feels like home!
