About this Holiday House

"Sanctuary in Sandy Bay" is a beautiful family home with stunning views over the northern side of Waiheke. It's in a wonderful secluded location in a quiet neighbourhood. It has everything you need to have a fabulous family holiday. This is a unique property in that it is 2 houses in one - it would be ideal for 2 families holidaying together. Each house has it's own kitchen, lounge, bathroom and laundry. It is available over the christmas / new year period to rent as a whole OR to just rent the downstairs house while still being able to use the upstairs deck. Option 1: Rent whole house $600/night (max 8-10 people) 5 bdrms, 2 kitchens, 2 bathrooms, 2 lounges, upstairs deck area Option 2: Rent downstairs house $350/night (max 4-5 people) 2 bdrms (bed in lounge if needed), 1 kitchen, 1 bathroom, 1 lounge, laundry, use of upstairs deck area. The upstairs house has 3 bedrooms and downstairs has two. The two levels are connected by a stairway in the garage - easy to access but separate enough if you want your own space. There is also access via the stairs on the deck. The views are beautiful from each floor and from the grounds on the northern side. Both the upstairs and the downstairs house have been partially renovated. The living areas (including the upstairs deck), and the downstairs kitchen are of a very high standard. The bedrooms and bathrooms remain in their basic 1970s glory! They are however very comfortable and great for busy families... at the end of the day, you're on waiheke for the outdoor lifestyle :-) We also have 2 very gorgeous cats (1yr olds). They are very low maintenance and great with kids. They just need their food and water bowls kept topped up and preferably we like them to sleep inside at night. (They are toilet trained and don't need kitty litters ). Down the road is our local beach Sandy Bay which is a lesser known one so a bit more secluded. You could also pop down the road to Enclosure Bay for a snorkel - both are perfect for families and children. Little Oneroa with it's famous dragon-fired pizza is an easy 20 minute walk away - great for families with a shop, pizza, beach and playground. A bus stop is there if you prefer to bus back up rather than walk. The rest of Waiheke is easily accessible by car from this very central location - playgrounds, beaches, shops, supermarket, vineyards and restaurants. It is also well located if you wish to use the buses. It's a 2 minute walk to Pope's corner bus stop which will connect you to Oneroa, Onetangi, Rocky Bay, Palm Beach, Ostend, and Matiatia. We are looking to rent our house to families only please. Netflix is available and we also have plenty of games, lego, toys, books, etc.

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

There are 3 beautiful beaches within walking distance - Sandy Bay is about 7 mins walk down the hill, which is a lovely family beach off the beaten track. Enclosure Bay is a further five minutes down the road - a great beach for snorkelling at full-tide. Hekerua Bay is another couple of minutes in the other direction from Sandy Bay - only accessible by boat or foot so very secluded. Sandy Bay is very central on Waiheke - Oneroa village or the shops at Ostend (including supermarket and saturday market) are just a few minutes drive away. The beautiful beaches of Oneroa, Palm Beach and Onetangi are very accessible by car as are the great vineyards scattered all over Waiheke. There are two great playgrounds within 5mins drive at Little Oneroa and Palm Beach. You could walk down to Little Oneroa in 20mins.
