We stayed one night at Auntie Dawn's Place and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The owners were very nice and helpful in pointing out where some places to eat would be as it was the start of winter season and things were closing early. It was a quick, easy walk to Hot Water Beach and the spades and a bucket...

I chose to stay at this place mainly because of its location very close to the hot water beach but it turned out to be more than its location. The rooms were neat an clean in lovely atmosphere. Owner's daughter was helpful and friendly. It was a bit late that we wanted to buy some eggs and asked for the...

We found this place after a long drive and it proved to be exactly what we wanted. It's very peaceful; the owners were very helpful and polite and the facilities were excellent. the breakfast was top-notch, comprising fruit from the garden, cereal and toast with most excellent coffee.

We turned up announced at 10 pm at night looking for a room to stay after our whole day got messed up elsewhere. We were warmly welcomed and shown to a room which was clean and welcoming with all amenities, including fresh fruit from the garden and necessary preparations for breakfast. Little touches like real coffee and a plunger and...

Loved everything they offered from the showers to fresh grapefruit to the shovels for the hot pools. Highly recommend staying here for your visit. The staff was incredibly nice. Only one minute from the beach and all the local cafes. Such a beautiful gem of hot water beach.

We spent two nights at Auntie Dawn's place during our New Zealand honeymoon. Sadly, Auntie Dawn was in the hospital during our stay. (I'm glad to see from the other more recent stays that she is all well and good) Still, Joe made us feel comfortable and at home. We loved spending time with Jock, their dog and meeting some...

Stayed here for two weeks. Dawn and Joe are both amazing people and their stories and conversations are worth the price alone. Couldn't ask for a better location too, < 1 minutes walk to the beach. The garden and surrounds are wonderful too. Highly recommended, thanks a million guys!

My husband and I stayed here with my elderly father-in-law as well as our two young children for four nights. This apartment was suitable for the kids and was also senior friendly with it being all on one level and having handrails in the bathroom. The kids loved exploring the property and helping feed the chooks. The location was perfect...

We enjoyed staying there in November 2010. There were 3 of us ,and the room little apartment was the perfect size. The kitchen was equiped with all we needed. It is a 5 minute walk to Hot Water beach and you can borrow a bucket & spade from Joe & Dawn. We had Joe's brew on our last day and...
