  • A great location on Waiheke and easy walk to Onetangi Beach

    A great location on Waiheke and easy walk to Onetangi Beach. The Bach itself provides a nice spot to kick back away from the hustle and bustle. ...also a great place to launch for the nicer Waiheke wineries, beaches, treks and drives to the east where the influence of Aucklanders and tourists is more muted. We would definitely book this place again.

    Great property overlooking some lovely bush and within a short walk to Onetangi beach. Very tranquil whilst still being close to amenities.
