    This is a property we would highly recommend. Perfectly located, with incredible views and privacy, full sunshine and a lovely quiet neighbourhood. The house is very clean and modern. Our Australian visitors were very impressed.

  • Spectacular location

    Spectacular location. It has its own private cliff access to the water, and very convenient access to a beach with swimming and kayaking opportunities. It's a very short walk or ride to many attractions on Waiheke Island, including most notably some great wineries.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Dale's gorgeous property on Waiheke

    We had a wonderful stay at Dale's gorgeous property on Waiheke. So conveniently located - not far from the car ferry, a short drive to the shops and many of Waiheke's best sights. The house was modern, comfortable and very well appointed. Our friends from Australia were amazed by the views from the house out to the bay with its azure waters. We will be back.
