Description

  • A very private setting with lovely waterfront views. Decks on two sides of the house
  • Rata Retreat embraces the charm of Waiheke without the busyness that goes with its popularity.
  • Family oriented home with sand pit for the children. 2nd living area has large reading couch & dvdTV

Rata Retreat is a one level holiday home that plenty of space. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the outdoor living in the summer or cosy fire in the winter.

There is no need for a car as the No 1 bus from the Matiatia ferry stops right outside the front door. The Oneroa shops restaurants and bars are a five minute walk / one minute bus ride away.

The location is also handy to the vineyards at Mudbrick and Cable Bay for that special occasion.

There are decks on both sides of the home with outdoor dining/BBQs on each deck. This means Outdoor living can be enjoyed irrespective of the wind.

This is our family haunt, so it is well set up for the grandchildren with a sandpit and a second living area. In the second living room (which opens out on the BBQ deck), there is a large reading couch where we read lots of books to the children. There is also a second TV with freeview and a DVD player. There is a myriad of books and games for people to use. There are three kayaks with life jackets for people to use ( Mid Feb 2017 - late March 2017 only one Kayak will be available).

The property is fully fenced making it child safe. At one end of the south facing deck, the childen can feed the ducks and the ells with live in the stream that runs along the property's west boundary line. A highchair and a porta cot can be made available if required.

There is garden is full of herbs so cooking with fresh herbs is a real pleasure.

There is plenty of offstreet parking and the house has wheelchair access.

Special conditions: While family gatherings are welcome parties are not. Definitely no camping permitted on the lawn. The lawn has a network of pipes from the Biolytx sanitary system and any pipe damage from tent pegs would result in an expensive repair bill. No smoking inside. No pets

  • Rata Retreat is a lovely property in a great location

    Rata Retreat is a lovely property in a great location. It was well-equipped, spacious and the outdoor areas were beautifully kept. Perfect for kids to play and adults to relax. Michael kindly provided portacots and a highchair which we were very grateful for. I highly recommend Rata Retreat and hope to visit again.

  • What a fabulous family Bach, thank you for sharing it with us...

    What a fabulous family Bach, thank you for sharing it with us Gaileen and Mike. Your Bach had everything we needed / wanted, and more. With two small children the sandpit, hammocks and bikes went down a treat and when the crazy summer storm came we all got cosy on the day bed and watched DVDs. We had a wonderful time and would love to stay again.
