Relax at Beautiful Palm Beach

 Great bach to stay in. Awesome view and lots of room. Good for 2 people or 10. Thanks. 

Extensive Island Views

 Great location, frightening drive up to property but wonderful when we got there. Views were lovely, house was perfect for the 5 of us , and very convenient and handy to my niece's wedding in Church Bay. We had a great time - we would come again. Thank you 

Palm Beach Retreat Waiheke

 Great location with wonderful views over the gulf. Need a car to get most places although Palm Beach bus close by. Two issues. We ran out of data so maybe a way for the tenant to purchase and pay for additional data from the ISP? Also although technically possible to sleep 12 people, 5 of those places were either roll out beds or couches in common areas with no privacy. Okay for kids sleeping in with their parents or in living room but not really for adults.
