Villa Pacifica 2bdrm Apartment: Free car/transfers

 Great property with fantastic views. Nice and secluded. Came with a well equipped kitchen, and helpful hosts. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone. 

Villa Pacifica - Single Unit1 - Free car/transfers

 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. 

Stunning ocean front beach apartment

 The property was ideally located in a central location, close to the beach and in between two different restaurants. It was well-equipped and very comfortable. 

The Jazz Loft In Onetangi

 Totally recommend. Amy made everything so easy and went out of her way to help us. The view was beautiful. The loft had everything we needed and was really clean. 

Studio and Spa by the Beach

 So handy to transport, beach & wineries, but nice & quiet area
