Designer 1 Bedroom House With Stunning Sea Views!

 like the view, the freebies. 

The perfect weekend getaway in this romantic bach.

 Loved the deck and the beautiful views! 

Beach house with stunning views over Hauraki Gulf

 Everything we could need was supplied - along with piano, games, lovely coffee table books, BBQ. Two double bedrooms. Magnificent view of Oneroa Bay and very easy walking distance to village. Ideal spot for a stay on Waiheke Island. 

Studio 33.  Sunny and spacious by Oneroa Beach.

 A great place. Clean. Comfortable. And wonderful proprietors. A few minutes walk to shops, restaurants, the beach, and tramping tracks. If you're energetic, a nice walk to and from the ferry and even a few wineries. And a sunrise every morning just outside your window. We hope to return again. 

Studio 33.  Sunny and spacious by Oneroa Beach.

 The property was lovely and clean, it had everything that we needed for our 2 night stay. The location overlooking the beach was magnificent, and within walking distance to the Village Shops and Cafes. We even saw the sun rising in the mornings. 

MAKO  COTTAGE. (FREE WIFI & SKY) Convenient+

 Great appropriate property for our needs (wedding up the road). Very clean and tidy with everything we needed (and we could take our dogs --- well fenced in garden so we could leave them occasionally). Great location for shops, restaurants, beaches, wineries --- all walkable to, and a park across the road. A competition with the tuis and kererus for the fruit!! Recommend.
