This home was very comfortable, well decorated, spacious, warm and relaxing. Had everything we needed for a relaxing getaway. Short walk to Onetangi and wineries close by. Highly recommended. Thank you
Lovely sunny house for mid winter. Clean and tidy inside. Everything you need for a stay - library, DVD's, Sky TV, internet. Hosts quick to make contact and answer any questions. Highly recommended, can understand why they where voted the best. :-)
We stayed for a full week, and had a lovely stay! The place is really nicely decorated and is a home away from home : ) Nigel the owner is really helpful and replied promptly to our emails. The heat pump keeps you warm and the entertainment system provides a great option on those days when the weather isn't great. No sea views, but is very peaceful and within walking distance to the beach. (What a gorgeous beach Onetangi is too!!!) Plus at the end of the road is a pizza shop, service station, and at the end of the hill a couple of places to eat on the seafront! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay on Waiheke Island!!
