This cute bach has recently been renovated for comfort with an authentic twist. Grab a bargain while the garden area is still unfinished, the house is ready for a wonderful holiday on stunning Waiheke Island. The house has wrap around decks, with large, covered areas, so you can use the bbq anytime. Relax in mid-century style, mixed with contemporary highlights. Curl up on the couch and enjoy the eclectic book collection. Wander down the road to the famous Ostend market on Saturday mornings, walk the new Te Ara Hura walkway which goes straight past the bach, or enjoy some of the neighbourhood cafes. Bring or rent a car or bike for the short trip to any of the beautiful beaches - Palm Beach is only 5 minutes away by car.

This is a simple house with a semi-rural outlook. It does not have a sea view, but the closest beach is a 5 minute stroll away. The cottage has its own off-road parking and sits on over half an acre of landscaped grounds, approx 30m from the main residence. A great base for a short stay or extended holiday on the island.

Doing some work on the island? The bach has unlimited free UFB WIFI and we can offer black and white and A3 colour printing if you need it. Reasonable printing charges apply.

We have TV on a cool mobile screen trolley with DVD and Chromecast, stream video from your mobile device or laptop, great for personal use, won't overwhelm the lounge.

Available all year round, for short stays and longer holidays. It has been insulated, and we have good heating, extra blankets for cold nights and plenty of hot water bottles for cold feet.

Here's a tip: download Yoome Waiheke for up to date travel info, facilities, weather, vineyards, restaurants and cafes nearby etc. Available for IOS, Android and Windows 8 devices. Its definitely the most useful guide to Waiheke you will find.

Special conditions: No fences around the property, may not be suitable for small children. Over for a wedding, meeting or event? We will accept single night bookings between Easter and mid-December, but please note these attract a $40 surcharge.

  • The bach is very near the supermarket and other services

    The bach is very near the supermarket and other services. Although there isn't a sea view there is a nice outlook over the valley - plus it's only 5 minutes by car from great beaches. The bach is charming with a lot of attention to the retro vibe details, especially the old radio tuned into RNZ, the amazing cocktail cabinet full of board games, the 70's pottery and furniture etc. The wifi was excellent, much appreciated by my sons. No oven -so don't plan roast dinners! Good value for money.
