Twin Views Majestic scenic seaviews

 Fantastic house and location with gorgeous views all around! The house comes equipped with all the amenities you need for a fabulous stay. Would love to come back another time 

Birdsong Bungalow, Waiheke Island

 Beautiful house! Impeccable, clean and easy. Thoroughly reccomend it for those who want a laid-back and hassle-free stay. House doesn't have a 'bach' feel - very 'new', 'modern' and 'polished' (a bit like a serviced apartment) but if you want a house that's spotless and not rough around the edges, this is the place for you :) 

Onetangi Hillton - Stunning views for the bay

 The property had lots and lots of space and two showers so was great for our group of 6 and would've comfortably accommodated plenty more. The owners were upstairs but we barely heard them and we definitely had our own space. Would recommend to friends and family :) 

Stunning views over beach, bay and beyond

 Loved the property views were fantastic very relaxing. Would definitely recommend and stay again on any future visits.

Island Views - to Coromandel & Huruhi Bay

 well appointed house close to village with good views 

Designer Cottage - Waiheke Unlimited

 The whole package was brilliant. The location and the views just great. It was stated that the linen and towels were of high quality.....It was true and the fresh flowers placed around the cottage was a really lovely surprise. The planter boxes around the decking full of white petunias another thoughtful touch..... Thank you we certainly will be back.
