Prime beachfront position on Waiheke Island.

 Right on the sea front with two bar /restaurants two minutes away. Big property with a couple of decks, BBQ, hot tub, and well equipped 

Private, modern, cosy, self contained farm stay

 We had a wonderful stay and would have liked to stay longer. The accommodation was very comfortable. It had everything we needed. We enjoyed walking the farm tracks with the children and found out we had a potential "Cross Country Runner" in the family. Kids enjoyed feeding the chickens and watching out for rabbits. Lovely, quiet and relaxing. We Will be back.
