The Villino at Cypress Ridge Estate

 Stunning location, excellent place to stay, very comfortable and enjoyable. Loved it, and would recommend anytime.... P.S. Walking distance to Casita Miro (5 star Spanish restaurant) is an added bonus! Cheers David 

Barefoot Spirit - Stay Waiheke

 Loved staying at this bach. Is very well set up, contemporary, great views, and so close to the beach. Would definitely stay here again! 

The Lodge on Waiheke - Stay Waiheke

 Great place for family get together with space for all ages. The property was so well set up for the number of guests. Fabulous views and quiet (except for the odd plane that flew by). 

The Villino at Cypress Ridge Estate

 The Villino has the most spectacular sea views over Onetangi & to wake up in the morning, through back the curtains in the bedroom & only see 'that view', is simply amazing. We loved our accommodation, every detail is thought of - lovely breakfast provisions, spa pool, beautiful linen, bathrobes & wonderfully private location. Simply beautiful & we will definitely be back for another stay, without a doubt.
