 A quirky property being very close to Oneroa 

The Grape Shed: A Uniquely Waiheke Experience.

 We had a wonderful week in the Grape Shed. The funky open plan shed and a 5 minute walk to the beach was perfect for the scorching weather. It is what I imagine glamping to be like.

 Perfect place to getaway for the weekend, located on one of my favourite streets on Waiheke! easy walking distance to Oneroa shops, beach and ferry. Simply heaven, look forward to staying again!! 

The Grape Shed: A Uniquely Waiheke Experience.

 The Grape Shed was great, very charming, rustic, and exactly what we needed!! We loved the view out the window over to the trees and grass, and sitting in sun on the comfy couch with coffee and books in hand when we weren't at Cable Bay (an easy walk) for our friend's wedding. SO CLOSE to the village, easy walk to fabulous cafes. Kind and friendly hosts - even gave us a lift to the wedding! 

The Grape Shed: A Uniquely Waiheke Experience.

 The Grape Shed was a fantastic centrally located stay - all the amenities with a bit of quirky thrown in there too !! The hosts were fabulous and ensured we had all we needed for a relaxing, enjoyable weekend on the Island - we thoroughly recommend the local walks as the scenery and views are just breathtaking.... next time we'll be making pizza in the outside oven !! Will be recommending this one for sure.
