Cottage | Onetangi | #17961
La Maisonette is a completely private cottage situated some 80m from the main house and about the same distance to nearby neighbours’ properties.
It is totally self contained and self catered with entry down a ramp leading off a small metalled road. There is off street parking down a concrete drive leading to a covered downstairs entry.
If you’re looking for a luxurious private hideaway for a weekend or longer La Maisonette delivers it in style. The cottage was completely refurbished and redecorated with all new furniture and fittings in October 2011. It sits above an award winning garden of nearly an acre with your own outdoor seating area.
The bedroom has a superior queen bed and 1rollaway single bed in the lounge providing for a maximum of 3 guests with all linen supplied. There is an additional charge of $30 per person per night when the rollaways are used. A Portacot is provided but no bedding or linen.
The bathroom has a heated towel rail and large soft towels, a shower, toilet, bath robes and a hair dryer, there’s a large walk in wardrobe. The kitchen has a double ceramic hob, microwave and fridge with all the pots, pans, cutlery, china and glasses you’ll ever need. Purified drinking water is on tap in the kitchen.
The dining area is adjacent to the kitchen, the lounge has comfy chairs, a 32 inch LCD TV with Freeview and a DVD player. There’s an MP3 docking station in the lounge, a good selection of books, cards and board games.
From the Juliet balcony off the lounge you look out over the tree tops to several award winning vineyards and out to the Barrier islands. This balcony has an outdoor table and chairs and is the ideal spot for those late afternoon drinks. The other balcony leads off from the bedroom and has similar views.

Peaceful location, very well-kept property. Delightful experience. Everything that is needed is to hand. And Casita Miro in walking distance; as is Onetangi Beach. We coped without wifi (!), but it's kind of a staple these days - maybe it's a thought for the future! But, as the owner explains, its not feasible technically to install it. Accordingly, upgraded to 5 stars as everything else is top line. Don't hesitate - just go and stay!
La Maisonette is a great place to stay on Waiheke. The house is lovely and tidy. We went in winter and found it wonderfully warm. The kitchen is well equipped. There are interesting books on the shelf and games in the cupboard. The surroundings are peaceful and the gardens are beautiful. Onetangi beach is only a short distance away. We went to Casita Miro two minutes walk down the road and recommend them too!
La Maisonette is a lovely, well decorated apartment with everything you need. The gardens Richard's wife has created are beautiful and really quite unique, great to stroll around and relax. Just a short stroll form Castro Miro Vineyard where we had a lovely meal (With Al Brown eating there too must be very good!). Lovely view from the apartment and as you walk down to the beach.
Very homely feel, interior decor and attention to detail in the cottage was very welcoming. All amenities provided (including bathrobes, books and information on the Island). Sunny, bright and charming cottage full of character. Water views and outdoor seating areas. Would definitely book here again.
