Within 5 minutes drive from arrival on Waiheke, your ultimate Bach 52 chill-out experience awaits. This cleverly designed, stylish space is discretely located at the end of an elevated bush-clad peninsular running alongside Anzac Bay, with accommodation and decking laid out to maximise sun, privacy and the dramatic grandstand native bush and bay s-edge views below. A private bush track leading from the house takes you to a little-known, safe, all-tide swimming beach.

The tranquil waterfront location and outlook to the Te Whau headland across the bay feels remote, yet is so central to the island s very best beaches, vineyards and cafes, as well as car and foot passenger ferries. It s a surprisingly short stroll to the shops and cafes of Ostend village, where you ll find the famous weekend markets. From here you could explore the white sands of Palm Beach - just 2-3 minutes by car. A 5-6 minute drive will have you at Oneroa village and beach, or in the other direction at Onetangi for more great beachfront cafes. Ostend is the hub of the island s bus service and you ll find a stop to take you almost anywhere, just at the end of the street.

This striking one bedroom house has undergone meticulous renovation in recent years, including a custom-built Smeg kitchen and new bathroom and toilet. Large windows throughout frame magical views - you feel as though you re hanging over the water. Bi-folding and French doors seamlessly connect all living spaces with decks which enjoy all day sun. The bedroom, also with dramatic bush and sea views, is spacious and fresh and the enormous Pohutukawa picture window gives the feeling of a tree house - just stunning when in red Christmas bloom.

B52 is the ultimate place and couple s space, to escape, chill, dream, unwind, disconnect from the rat-race and reconnect with your own pace. So easy to find, so hard to leave - unforgettable nature, seascape and landscape...

    Beautifully presented bach overlooking a lovely secluded bay, even more picturesque than the photos. Easy walking distance to the local store and not too far to the Ostend shops, it’s a central location for excursions across and around the island.

  • Property was beautifully presented with all facilities required

    Property was beautifully presented with all facilities required. Great spot -- peaceful and perfectly set up for outdoor living. Good location on the island. We needed a car to get to main Ostend shops and further afield but more active people could get by walking and using bus.

  • This Bach was beautiful

    This Bach was beautiful. Clean, comfortable, stunning views and such a peaceful yet convenient location. We loved our time here and would rate this a 9.8/10. The only thing that would have made it perfect were just some of the little details, extra towels, tongs, playing cards, paper towels, a radio etc but certainly wouldn't stop us from recommending or coming back.

    The house was extremely clean and well equipped! The location is superb being really close to everything, but extremely quiet and private and tucked away - we loved it!!!
