Reviews from Past Guests

Review by Michelle (Stayed in July)

A lovely spot to spend a peaceful few days exploring the Eastern end of Waiheke. Views are beautiful, and there are some nice walks around. It was wonderful to have a wood-burning stove on our winter visit, and with the supplementary gas and electric heaters we were not cold. Very spacious, and nice to have a rear courtyard which gets afternoon sun. The property has a very "batchy" vibe. Nice in winter, but would be a great spot in the summer when you can get in or on the water. Excellent service from Waiheke Holiday Homes, and a very accommodating owner around late check out, and changing dates, which was much appreciated. We would stay here again. Recommend arriving during daylight when you first turn up in order to get the "lie of the land", as the property is down an unsealed road with a fairly (but not excessively) steep drive.

Review by Lynn (Stayed in March)

We had a wonderful holiday in this beautiful home , the beds were comfy , the linen was top quality, everything you needed was there , we will definitely re book to stay at this place , thank you !

Review by Carl (Stayed in December)

Great place to "get away from it all". Far enough away from the crowds at the other end of the island. Well appointed and short stroll the beach, which was perfect for swimming ( particularly at high tide). All had a great time , including the dog....
