 The property was well equipped for a great relaxing and 'waterfront' holiday. Amazing location, with views that make is challenging to leave. Whatever the weather this place was the perfect place fro a family holiday with lots of adventure at your doorstep.

Perfect Getaway for Couples and Families

 The house suited our needs for our Great Lake Relay Team, the location, off street parking and the two bathrooms were a real help. There was great communication in setting the rental up and arranging to meet to hand over keys. Will definitely be in touch for next year’s relay! 

The Gatehouse - Waiheke Island Holiday Home

 What an amazing view! The house is set out really well for a large group, we especially liked the shady gazibo outside. We managed the steep driveway well enough in our cars as there is room to turn around at the top. So lovely and close to the beach for a swim! The bus stops right outside the property from the ferry. We all raved about the house and would love to stay there again. 

Zodiac Bay Lake Retreat

 Great location for children with nearby playground and lake 

Stunning Award Winning Twin Ocean View Beach House

 When looking for a house to rent, we had one simple brief-to find the best rental house in the North Island that sleeps 15 people. I scoured every rental, across every site, and Oke Beach House was the cream that rose to the top. We had very high expectations before arrival, and they were, without fail, exceeded. The house is fully equipped to the highest standard,and setting is mind blowing. I unreservedly recommend this house, and have no doubt a number of those who stayed will return 

Napiers large quiet family friendly holiday home

 Great location, out of town so quiet, but hand to the shops and Napier city!! Great experience!
