  • We have just come home from 10 days stay at the Waterline...

    We have just come home from 10 days stay at the Waterline with our 2 dogs Lillie and Garett. The accomadation was perfect. Daily swims from the deck, just sitting and watching the water, we all needed a break and this was the perfect getaway. The facilities are awesome with lots of extras, the kitchen is amazing. We loved every minute. The locals were friendly and made us feel welcome. There is a huge amount of history in the area. We cruised the harbour and drove to Tane Mahuta, Mitimiti and Opononi. When the library next door was having some maintainance done with a Jackhammer!- Grant was so apologetic and even sent us round a good bottle of wine and some local jam. A truly fabulously positioned and presented property. Thank you so much!
