The Gatehouse - Waiheke Island Holiday Home

 What an amazing view! The house is set out really well for a large group, we especially liked the shady gazibo outside. We managed the steep driveway well enough in our cars as there is room to turn around at the top. So lovely and close to the beach for a swim! The bus stops right outside the property from the ferry. We all raved about the house and would love to stay there again.

 Great location, amazing views and very big house! Does have a very steep drive way so elderly might struggle to walk down to the beach.
