Absolutely lovely beach front accommodation

 A delightful place to stay with sea views in a quiet location . This downstairs apartment is beautifully furnished and has a real sense of history while also being warm ( we stayed in early autumn) and convenient. We enjoyed using the kayaks and walks in the area. The property manager was extremely helpful. We look forward to returning again. 

Coromandel Cottage  - Romantic Rustic - Sea views

 View was great. Two living spaces great for our family. This cottage was perfect. Our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer. 

Pinehaven Riverside Cottage - Escape the Rat Race

 Absolutely spectacular place. We loved coming home to such a beautiful, tranquil and private setting. The stars were amazing, especially from the hot tub. Great location to explore gorge, Waihi beach and easy to hire bikes. Would definitely recommend this place and look forward to coming back. 

Beautiful Bliss Cottage

 Absolutely loved our stay, very comfortable, very cosy, very clean and the cheese and champagne waiting for us was a special bonus. 

You cant get closer to the water if you tried

 Best view on the beach and a very comfortable and clean place to stay - will be back 

Stunning Onetangi Waiheke Beach House
