The Gatehouse - Waiheke Island Holiday Home

 Excellent Property, looking forward to be back 

Three family homes in one- Room for everyone!!!

 This holiday home is perfect for large groups, close to town and to the lake. 

Tidal Waters Loglodge spectacular water views

 This is an excellent property for a large group. There were only 10 of us but it comfortably sleeps twice as many and would be great for a number of families. Beautiful expansive views over the bay, great sun and excellent outdoor area. Great games room with pool table and table tennis. We didn't swim down in the bay because it was so windy, but enjoyed walks and golf at Tolaga Bay. Brent was very hospitable and brought us some crayfish on our first day! Location is not sign-posted.
