Valhalla - Stay Waiheke

 Property was perfect for what we wanted. Somewhere close to the beach, but great entertaining space for us to relax and enjoy the views and have dinner. Kitchen was also large enough for 2 or 3 of us to prepare food and chat with those outside enjoying the pool and those inside chilling out, so never feeling left out. Great property, we'll be back!

Stunning Award Winning Twin Ocean View Beach House

 When looking for a house to rent, we had one simple brief-to find the best rental house in the North Island that sleeps 15 people. I scoured every rental, across every site, and Oke Beach House was the cream that rose to the top. We had very high expectations before arrival, and they were, without fail, exceeded. The house is fully equipped to the highest standard,and setting is mind blowing. I unreservedly recommend this house, and have no doubt a number of those who stayed will return 

Bach and / or cottage - you decide

 Our family of, 9 adults,2 toddlers and 1 dog all loved this bach! Plenty of room for everyone, the beds were all comfortable. Super safe for the toddlers and dog. Loved the two decks and the fact that we all got a seat around each table for eating (inside and outside) so that we could have our family meals together. Location is one of our top favorites, super close to the beach, dairy, and cafe. Already planning to return next year!
