Amazing sea views, contemporary architectural home

 This is a property with some wow factor, in an incredibly quiet location with stunning views. A real pleasure to stay here, and the ideal location for some R&R. Property owner was a friendly fella to deal with too.

Valhalla - Stay Waiheke

 Property was perfect for what we wanted. Somewhere close to the beach, but great entertaining space for us to relax and enjoy the views and have dinner. Kitchen was also large enough for 2 or 3 of us to prepare food and chat with those outside enjoying the pool and those inside chilling out, so never feeling left out. Great property, we'll be back!

 This delightful and meticulous cottage sits amongst manicured gardens and stunning New Zealand native trees and palms. It's incredibly private and quiet apart from the bird life..tuis, fantails and Native pigeons. Everything is provided to make your stay very special. I would definitely like to return in the winter to curl up on their comfy sofa by the wood burner. 

Home away from home Sunny holiday home in the Bays

 The house is good, it was set up with everything we could possible need. It has a nice garden with fruit and veggies for us to eat. Very nice! A big deck around the house and two dining areas, perfect when following the sun :) The location is also great. Close to the beach and Browns Bay "central", both within walking distance. The bus stop just up the road which was great for us as we didn't have a car the first month and a half.
