Outstanding in Oneroa, Waiheke Is. *INCLUDES CAR*

 The house was amazing. Beautiful views, lots of entertainment for young children and everything you could ever want in a kitchen. Only thing, the walking distances were a bit too far for us so we made good use of their people mover.

Queen Charlotte Breakaway Bach

 The property was immaculate, very comfortable and had everything you might need. The location was peaceful and just across the road from the water. There are a couple of good kayaks with all the gear. Set In the beautiful Marlborough Sounds but just a 25 minute drive from Picton. Very welcoming hosts. Would definitely stay there again. 

PALM  BEACH  DELIGHT - Palm Beach

 Palm Beach Delight is perfectly named - the cottage is set in a wonderful, private garden with great sun and just a short stroll down to Palm Beach. The cottage is stylish and comfortable, with every detail just right. We don't think we've ever stayed in a nicer place. We loved the resident wood pidgeons, the super comfortable beds, and the great magazine collection. We've been to Waiheke a couple of times before but this was the best yet because the cottage just made our holiday.
