Welcome to our little piece of paradise nestled amongst historic trees in a secluded part of Waiheke Island. This property is ideal for an extended family looking for a home-away-from-home holiday. There is ample of room for everyone to relax on bean bags on the sprawling lawns, by the pool or in one of two sitting rooms. There is even a baby grand piano to tinker on making it an entertainer's delight!

It comes with all the toys to make your stay enjoyable, including two kayaks (already by the water), boogie boards, a surf board and we can also leave a selection of children’s toys behind for entertaining the kids (under 5 years) on request.

Kitchen is fully equipped including a bread-maker and Nespresso coffee machine. We will leave some supplies but recommend you stock up on coffee (Nespresso) before you come to the Island.

Like a number of properties on the island, our driveway is steep but is sealed and there is plenty of room for turning and parking. Bus stop is conveniently located 50 metres away and we will also leave you our old 'runabout', 2 door 1997 Suzuki Vitara.

We want to reiterate that this is a much-loved family home ideally suited to families looking for a comfortable and relaxing island escape. We do have a tenant who lives in a self-contained part of the house (with own entry and entertaining areas). We ask that any prospective renters respect her privacy.

Pets considered and by negotiation.

  • A beautiful family home and a little child's paradise - and adults'...

    A beautiful family home and a little child's paradise - and adults' as well! I almost don't want to say how lovely this property is because I want it to be available the next time we want to stay. Great pool, views, open living space, toy room, range of outdoor living areas etc etc. It was very stylish and felt like a home rather than a corporate rental. Highly recommended.

    Incredible views, open plan living, lots of different spaces so everyone could find their own area. Music, toys, arts & crafts available and the pool is just magic - the perfect place for a family/extended family to stay with children. Thanks so much - we actually want to move in full time : )

  • Our stay at Putiki Bay Retreat was marvellous

    Our stay at Putiki Bay Retreat was marvellous. Family of 6 with dog. We spent Christmas here ( a busy time on Waiheke) but we really felt that there was not much need to leave the house!! - of course we did - couldn't miss the wineries!! The house is luxurious with magnificent water views from the pool area and most windows. Might try and book for next Christmas!!
