Tigers Den outstanding water views

 Lovely place to stay, with a lovely view. Friendly to deal with and suggested several places to go to while we were there. Thanks. We all had a lovely holiday 

Fitzroy Heights -Great for families & large groups

 Lovely house, love the extra touches and such a great price. Can't fault it, thanks 

Wild Bay Villa, Premium Waiheke Accommodation

 Really lovely location. You get 3 sea views at the same time. Older house but nicely accessorised and decorated. Well provided for with cooking gear etc. Very private. The downstairs room could use curtains though- very hot. 

5 Bdrm Beachfront Family Escape

 Incredible location that is not much more than a few metres from the sandy beach, where we swam, and launched the boat and kayaks. Very enjoyable surroundings, with eye-candy views across the bay from the living room, kitchen and deck. Spacious living area and lots of options for sleeping arrangements making it ideal for more than one family and friends. We will be back again next year! 

Beach Retreat A fantastic beach setting.

 Great spot, clean and tidy and suited our group really well. Thanks for everything. 

Villa Rosa - a charming turn of the century villa

 Love Villa, great location, added bonus of breakfast being supplied.
