You'll feel at ease the moment you arrive. A minutes flat stroll to a safe quiet beach and big grassy reserve, casual bach with 4 bedrooms (3 freshly renovated), plus large covered deck off lounge gives you an extra living area - no matter what the weather is doing!

 The property suited our needs perfectly. There was an area for our dog to stay and plenty of great places to walk him. The bach itself was very well presented, comfortable and very well resourced. It had everything you could possibly need or want. The area where the bach is located is handy to some wonderful vineyards and is only a short drive from the ferry building. We had a great time at the bach in Rocky Bay and would definately recommend it to anyone. 

 Second time we had stayed here. Love the fact it's like a home away from home. Fully equipped and tidy with lots to do at the house and in the area. Thanks for having us! 

 Had a lovely stay! Great location! 

 The property was great - perfect for what we needed as a base to explore the island and the outdoor area was perfect for our little pooches - had a great time - a great spot - and would totally recommend this property - perfect for families 

 Nice relaxing location - away from the main touristy parts of Waiheke. A very typical kiwi bach - comfortably furnished and practical with lots of bed/bedrooms, not a huge living space but large covered deck that we used in lieu of indoors. Great flat lawn off the deck. Well set up, games, books, magazines everything you need on home.
