Inlet Villas was a wonderful place to end our honeymoon. Though it is not so easy to get around on Waiheke Island, these villas are pretty close to a few of the excellent wineries on the island as well as the beach a couple of miles away (we actually did the walk in just under an hour and really enjoyed it!) There is also the water access for kayaking right on the property.

Jenny was a caring and generous host, connecting us with excellent food and wine as well as helping us get settled in early when we arrived unannounced during a brief bout of rain. She made our stay easy, relaxing and enjoyable.

The villa was beautiful--clean, light, airy and tastefully decorated. The balcony was the perfect place for a morning coffee and a little sun. What a great place to end our two week trip.

The Inlet Villas were brilliant. Modern, New, Clean, Beautiful views, free wifi a bonus! Close to supermarket, and gorgeous restaurants, hmmm you have to go to Casita Miro - awesome experience, if you want the best pizza eat in or take out - Stefanos. Absolutely no complaints and would go back again.

What a beautiful setting this is.... my husband, my 2yr old daughter and me stayed at these wonderful villas for the weekend and it was the most relaxing and serene environment. The villas were spotlessly clean, cosy and with beautiful interior decor. The glass inset gas fire was the perfect touch for that 'getting away from it all' feeling. Our visit was made more delightful having seen the villas 'in construction' years ago, and to now go back and see them completed was just wonderful. We would not hesitate to recommend Inlet Villas, an absolute 'writer's paradise' - luxurious, peaceful, picturesque and with wonderful hosts. Thank you for a lovely getaway stay!

Room Tip: If you're travelling with a little one needing a travel cot bear in mind the single room villas...

Inlet Villas comprise of 3 couples units and the larger main building. They've been well thought out and executed and are surrounded by olive groves filled with bird life, with a view looking East. We stayed in the big one and enjoyed it greatly. Nice and clean with a heated bathroom floor for our winter stay and a bath to warm up in after our walks. Jenny could not have been more welcoming. We'll be back.

My partner and I stayed at the villas over a long weekend to celebrate my birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this calming and beautiful environment, inside and out. Stylish and modern interiors, yet so comfortable and inviting. The gas fire places and heated bathroom floors made our winter stay all the more special. On our arrival we were greeted by Jenny and her warmth and friendliness was really appreciated. Location is very private yet very close to the cafes, vineyards etc. We will be back.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the villas over the Easter period and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The villas were new, clean and complete with all the trimmings needed to enjoy every bit of your holiday. Locationally, they are 5 mins from the central hub which is great as it is private yet convenient. The view is amazing, although the river is tidal which didn't bother us however if you wish to kayak etc need to do in the morning. There is a place to swim in the beach a pleasant 10 min walk down the road. Stunning location and room. A car is an absolute necessity (as with anywhere on the island) Definitely recommend to friends and would stay again. But whatever you do don't leave the windows open all day (or be prepared for Mosquitos) as there are no fly screens.
