Bayview Haven, Palm Beach Waiheke Island, Auckland

 Lovely bach and great location. Very comfortable and everything is in great condition. My kids are already asking to go back to stay! 

Central Beach Front Apartment

 This property is gorgeous. The location is perfect and the kids and I had a wonderful time. 

Oneroa Beach front .Cosy in the winter by the fire

 Fabulous property - perfect location. Stunning views and easy walk to town and beach. Robbie was great to deal with and the bread and fresh pate on arrival was a nice touch! Only down side was said had sky - but no sky sport to watch the cricket :-( not that the females in the house minded! Awning was perfect for shade - just bring your mosquito spray if staying in summer! Perfect weekend away from reality. 

Coast Retreat Muriwai Beach

 This is a lovely place to stay. It was in a good location - tennis courts over the road, 5 min walk to the beach. The Coastal Retreat is very comfortable and well presented. We would stay again! 

Rosebud Cottage - HALF PRICE 3-6 FEB

 lovely bach and quiet location, great breakfast provisions 


 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.
