Wild Bay Villa, Premium Waiheke Accommodation

 The villa was so beautiful, nice and tidy with sea views. Just amazing place to be. 

Close to lake, lake views

 A fantastic property, just the right size for our large family. The sleepout allowed the grandparents a good night sleep away from the grandchildren! Very well equipped, like your home away from home. The spa was a wonderful added bonus, such a treat to be able to wake up with a hot spa, even in the middle of summer! We're look forward to a stay in winter and using it then :-) It would have been nice if the back garden was fully fenced allowing for safe toddler play but that's a small thing.
