  • House was spacious, and clean

    House was spacious, and clean. A lot of mozzies. Great views. Driveway was very steep and tight for car, bushes need to be cut back. Beds very comfortable. The beach in particular is a lovely bay, we encountered sting rays. Had Wi-Fi. Kitchen has a cupboard that's like a tardis. We enjoyed our stay here, we got married on sandy bay beach and had a lovely reception at the waiheke resort palm beach. We left a white/cream top behind, hope we can have it returned if found.

    Great location and the kitchen facilities are fantastic and our boys loved biking into town every day on the Ebikes. The only downside for us was the driveway being narrow due to hedges either side so not suitable for SUV's or our VW Amrok. Wouldn't stay here again due to that reason and bringing a jetski but would recommend to others with smaller car as the house has everything you need and more.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Many thanks for the information about the driveway. The owners have taken this on board and have cut back the hedges to make sufficient room for large cars to now pass comfortably and without risk of being scratched. We have tested with the a wide SUV. We appreciate your feedback.

    If I have to say anything I think there should have been body wash in the bathrooms . And there was a wasp nest under the bottom deck.

    Property was clean had everything we required, lovely and quite and peaceful with exceptional views the only problem was leaving it behind.

  • Excellent property and location

    Excellent property and location. It was great to be able to see the whole beach just below the house and to watch the tide and boats come and go. All the owners need to do is get those power lines put underground, but overall we could not have been happier with our accommodation choice.
