Via Del Lago - a place for family or friends.

 Close to lake, great set up of house for multiple families staying with several small children. 2 living spaces provided enough room for us all without is "tripping" over each other. Loved the kitchen! 

Auckland Beachfront Retreat

 The bach fits so many of us and we even had an amazing backyard view and beach access. Very well equipped kitchen and clean and tidy showers. Would definitely recommend this place. 

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

 Huge house with lots of beds! Great for extended families, sports teams etc. $9 taxi to town centre so in a good location. Very private property. We had a great stay. Thanks. 

The Lodge on Waiheke - Stay Waiheke

 The property was very impressive with large open kitchen and lounge area opening onto a large deck as well as another kitchen and lounge just next door. It has 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms as well as a loft for extra accommodation if needed. BBQ and tables, furniture and great sound system. Everything was catered for including dishes to prepare food right down to coffee & tea. Really fabulous Lodge for a big group for a relaxed and enjoyable weekend away with friends!!!
