STATE below. 1 No heating entire time of the stay. 2 No breakfast entire time of the stay. 3 Coffee only had a few times and then asked me if I would want some coffee I said yes then she told me you need to buy it your self.and that's out of 59 days 4 TV  in our room doesn't work and in the common area she won't let you watch her TV while she is home which is 90% of the time except for the two weeks when she was in Australia. 5 Toilet paper was provided for two weeks and two more rolls were provided on the the first of November of our stay as we had to walk to get more about 48 rolls as we had to buy on our own which is a 25 minute walk one way if you keep a good pace. Shampoo and conditioner and body wash are over night  size that she never replaced the whole time of our stay. 6 Views are misrepresented from the photos as there is no sandy beach views. Unless you take 8 minutes to walk to the beach Also any view that is provided it has to be seen mainly through a screen as she has told us that Sun will damage her rugs and reminds you when you try to open them that it's her house and please leave the screens shut 7 Diana comes over and complains about the refrigerator doors been open for to long just as it was opened  and slams it almost in my face and your just putting your groceries away she comes to shut the door and I literally opened up the refrigerator to fit 2 items in on my five inch shelf a carrot and 4 tomatoes I just had to wait to finish putting them away when she leaves. Another very uncomfortable situation. 8 Also the time to get to Milford market door to door is 25 minutes and not the 10 minutes that's quoted. 9 Complained multiple times about how much she can get for our room and you got the room to cheap and that's why she didn't want to include breakfast also told she could get $90 a day for our room that's why she hasn't been hospitable with us and I said this is a monetary matter but she ignored me and complained about how the French girl lowered the price and she told her that would help you rent the room she was right it was right in our budget. Had we knew we were going to be treated this poorly we could of looked elsewhere. In conclusion we like to express our thoughts when we arrived here on October 2  she had a young French girl staying here from help x which we saw our host Diana have her work 9  to 12. hours a day that made us feel very uncomfortable although she got a roof over her head...

Response from Diana Sylvia:
Reg and Akemi wanted everything as cheap as possible which I find hard to fathom as they are in Real Estate as Brokers in Los Angeles and to travel ones needs to have a certain amount of money. It seemed they were always wanting a bargain. I was only too happy to help them by driving them out to shop and to extend an invitation to join a group of friends to an Irish pub but when they did not offer to buy me a drink or some chips I decided it was one sided. They already had a backpackers price for a very large room and own bathroom for $48 a night for 2 people but were still asking and expecting more and it is true the room is worth more and most people would be more than happy but not them. Reg is loud and his opinions are not welcome when he tries to manipulate others in my house. He was watching his money it seemed all the time when in actual fact to catch the bus to the local supermarket with the Hop on card it is $3 and I suggested if he does not like the instant coffee and he wishes to drink my Moccona that he gets he own jar! He did use all the Milo in the kitchen which he was welcome too! I'm not surprised by their comments but I had hoped they would be more appreciative as my helper spent a lot of time setting up their I phones (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) applications for them when they first arrived plus cooking and preparing a meal for their 9 guests which my flatmate and helper did most of the work and cleaning up the dishes also. There are always 2 sides to every situation and as a host I found there stay too long as they were never satisfied.

The house is in a very quite zone while just walk distance to Castor Bay beach and Milford beach, and 5 minutes drive to the Countdown supermarket. Diana is a very kind person. We love talking with her and living here just like in our own home. My son love the house and Diana very much. He enjoys playing his toys on the lounge ground. We would love come back again next time we come to Auckland.

We had a lovely time at Diana's place . The house is comfortable , the view is superb, the area is quiet and close to beaches . For us it was a great way to end our stay in New Zealand after 6 months on the road. Nous avons passé un moment très agréable chez Diana. La maison est confortable, la vue est superbe, le quartier calme et proche des plages. C'était pour nous une très bonne façon de terminer notre séjour en Nouvelle Zélande après 6 mois sur les routes.
