  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We felt very much at home as soon as we walked in the front door such is the ambience of the house. We were two families each of four adults and had plenty of space to relax. We hope to return both to this house and to Waiheke.

    We can't rate this property highly enough - our stay was a 10+! The Villa is beautiful, comfortable, well appointed and well located. The smiles on our faces as we arrived said it all. None of us would hesitate to stay here again and in fact, we all hope to!

    Lovely character house which was ideal for a family gathering. Gorgeous views and swimming pool. We loved our stay and made our first visit to Waiheke memorable.

    Beautiful property. We absolutely loved our time at the villa. Perfect for large family groups. Lovely heated pool and stunning setting. Super location close to shops and the park. Would highly recommend staying here!

  • Lovely location, very quiet with beautiful views

    Lovely location, very quiet with beautiful views. It suits 8 people ideally but does have an extra bed in the pool room. The actual villa was so well presented and had so much character. I felt I could have moved in there and enjoyed it just as it was - liked the furniture and bedding etc. We wished we'd taken some towels for the pool as there was only one towel per person. A small criticism for an amazing house with everything you could possibly need.
