The Gatehouse - Waiheke Island Holiday Home

 What an amazing view! The house is set out really well for a large group, we especially liked the shady gazibo outside. We managed the steep driveway well enough in our cars as there is room to turn around at the top. So lovely and close to the beach for a swim! The bus stops right outside the property from the ferry. We all raved about the house and would love to stay there again. 


 Excellent location and the big house is ideal for large family groups, especially for children. 

Clifftop family friendly holiday home

Well equipped with everything you need for a great holiday, plenty of space for the kids, great views and we made delicious pizza's with use of the pizza oven. Fully recommend you hire this holiday home for your next holiday.
