We have stayed in several homeaway places with quite a range of experiences. So, when we booked the Smoko Room, all we sought was reasonable accommodation close to Castlepoint where we could take our dogs to the beach. The Smoko Room is one of the better places that we have experienced and we personally really liked it and would like to return. The proximity to the sandy beach was great for our dogs. Eating breakfast at the table on the decking with the sea view was just perfect. The cooker worked great. The woodburner warmed the property amply. The entire place was clean and spacious. The bed was comfy. The owner was prompt to respond to communication. To see the shearing shed was particularly interesting. Many thanks for having us stay.
Just what we were looking for a weekend away. Right on the beach , unobstructed veiws. Kotahi had everything we needed or wanted. Clean , tidy and a fun cottage to stay in. Would use it again but for longer next time.
