Hartley Cottage 10 mins walk to beach.

 Very clean and tidy, and very well equipped with all necessities for an enjoyable stay. Thoughtful additions like milk in the refrigerator and welcome chocolates were appreciated. Good clear instructions for everything. 

Sunny property in quiet central location

 Close to Onetangi Beach, Quiet :) 

Hartley Cottage 10 mins walk to beach.

 This is a great place to stay. It is clean and modern, and brilliantly well equipped: we found everything we needed for the kitchen, the bathroom and the bedrooms, and for leisure and outdoor activities. It's really quiet, with a lovely big garden and two areas to eat outdoors and enjoy the sun. Really handy to the shop and petrol station, and just a short walk to Onetangi beach, the best place on Waiheke! Would definitely come back here, and would highly recommend to all.

Hartley Cottage 10 mins walk to beach.

 What a great place. Well equipped and good location. It felt very comfortable and the fully fenced section would make it great for children. Only suggestion I would make is to install insect screens on at least one window in each room. The weather was a real scorcher when we were there but couldn't leave the windows open at night due to mozzies. Wouldn't put us off though, will definitely book again.

 Close enough to beautiful beach, ideal place to explore the island from of you have a car or are super fit with bikes. Immaculately clean and newly renovated.

 Great location, very well looked after, nice property, everything provided. Onetanga is a fantastic place to go. Lovely beach, nice bush walks, good beach bar and good vine too. Very remote and quite, ideal for a „good time out“.
