This is the third time that we have stayed at the New Zealand House. As usual, the service and the hospitality were excellent. My only complaint was the weather which the hosts, Warren and Rick, were not responsible for. The other guests were quite open to visiting with. That is the one main difference that I see from other gay...

This was my 4th time to stay at the New Zealand House and each time has been a wonderful experience. Warren and Rick make you feel like it is you own place.

I just arrived back from my stay at the NZH...looking at the pictures again makes me miss the house terribly! I went with 3 of my mid-twenty friends, and we all walked away with a truly magnificent experience. In fact, one of the most favorable parts of our stay - the most talked about and inspiring - was the house....

This is the first vacation I could afford in a long time. I had reservations about the Florida gay scene and of going to an "All gay Male Resort". My pre concieved notions were put to rest as soon as I rang the doorbell. Warren answered and I felt already at home. He was extremely friendly and made sure that...

When we turned down our bedspread in our room we discovered poop stains on the bedsheet from the previous occupants of the room. We were horr'ified. Management did nothing about this when they were notified and in fact were rude, indignant and non apologetic. Needless to say we will not be returning to this place again.

The fiasco here lies with the guest. They stayed with us twice before within the last 2 weeks and had no complaints. I made up and thoroughly cleaned the room myself. There was a fresh stain on the top sheet which was put there by this guest. I can only guess the motivation was to get some compensation such as...

I've stayed at the New Zealand House three times now, after numerous stays at other gay guest houses in Fort Lauderdale. My stays at the NZH have been consistently great. Each of the three different rooms I've stayed in has been comfortable, and meticulous maintained. Hosts Ric and Warren not only keep the place beautifully maintained, but contribute significantly to...

As always, we had a great time at this hide-a-way in Ft. Lauderdale. The owners are wonderful and helpful. This is the place I always check first for my travel plans to SE Florida. New wireless internet worked flawlessly.

We had a wonderful time. Everyone was very nice and willing to help out in any way they could. All of the guests were VERY friendly, introducing themselves and sharing cocktails at the pool. This all made for a wonderful and relaxing afternoon lounging at the pool enjoying the south Florida sun. The rooms were more immaculate very well appointed...
