Response from the owner Kia orana Thank you for the feedback of your stay at Pae Moana. As I have mentioned to you in reply to your email to you that it is always our incentive to make sure that our guests are comfortable with their stay at Pae Moana. We do normally have 3 kayaks at the property but unfortunately one was damaged by previous guests and was being repaired at the time of your stay. There is definitely 3 kayaks there now. The glass problem has never been to that extent over the last 4 years as you've pointed out. Unfortunately, the glass problem has extends to at least 500m north along our beautiful beach - the sections along this area of coast use to extend out at least 10m towards the lagoon and the rubbish holes were often in that area as it's the back of the house. As erosion has moved the usable land boundary further towards the road, I suspect that these old rubbish holes are being scoured out and glass and other inorganic refuse is being carried onto the beach during rough seas. Most of the glass that ends up on the beach is from large brown bottles which indicates the age of the bottles as no one drinks from these bottles anymore and haven't done for many years. It is an issue that the government/Environmental agencies need to address as soon as possible. It is unfortunate that your group of 7 experienced this during your stay. We also hope that you enjoyed the complimentary bottle of wine, dozen beer, fruit bowl, tea/coffee/sugar, milk, juice and lastly the $100 Tamarind House Meal Voucher as a gift in celebration of your birthday with your sister. We sincerely hope that you will visit us again.
