 The accommodation has easy access, is modern and nicely appointed, very clean and has amazing views. The car provided was also very good. We would definitely return if visiting Waiheke Island in the future. 

Villa Pacifica - Single Unit2 - Free car/transfers

 Can't speak highly enough about this place, and the people. Thank you for your great communication beforehand and awesome hospitality there. The hosts and Villa Pacifica, you are the total package. Your place has it all - bush at the back door, incredible sea views out the front, clean, tidy, peaceful, plenty of space indoors and out and to top if off ferry shuttle and a loan car while there. Should we ever return to Waiheke, this will be the first place we contact for accommodation.
