Nikau Cottage - Cosy Forest Hideaway

 The place was absolutely gorgeous, lots of privacy, quiet and very close to one of the most beautiful beaches on the Island and wonderful places to dine. The place was very clean, well equipped and had a wonderful selection of books and games for adults and children. The beds were very comfortable with lots of blankets and towels available. I couldn't have been happier! Thank you so much for making my 28th birthday so memorable. I will definitely be back. 

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. 

Stunning Onetangi Waiheke Beach House

 Very spacious and light. Loved being able to use fresh herbs from the garden! 

Whisper Cottage,Sun, Sea Views,Spa Pool & 4wd

 The house is tucked away in the bush, it's comfy with great seaviews and it's a great deal with the car. 

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. 

Whisper Cottage,Sun, Sea Views,Spa Pool & 4wd

 A lovely little spot to stay with a glorious view. The use of the vehicle was a bonus, although parking is a little bit tricky. The Bach is well equipped and I really liked the little extra touches provided, very thoughtful! I would certainly recommend to others.
