 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. 

Palm Beach Holiday Apartment

 Amazing location, 2 mins to the beach, very private, and perfect for a weekend getaway. Unit is newly deocrated and has everything you need, all in a beautiful setting and opposite the bus stop if you don't take a car to the island.
