Cute, tidy and funky house, loved laxin on the couch, walking to nearby Charley Farleys along the beach and so close to vineyard and bus stops! Thanks so much! We would definitely recommend! It was my sister who found this place and organised our first ever trip to Waiheke, it won't be the last, that's for sure! more

Altogether fabulous! Grasshopper was all we had hoped it would be. A retro bach, with lovely features that added to the ambience. We really had a lovely weekend. Communication with the owner regarding the booking was very friendly and helpful. (Steps to Onetangi beach great for going DOWN..not so good for the unfit like me!) more

This is a lovely property with amazing views, good cooking and laundry facilities and plenty of space for a family of four. It is situated in a quiet, residential area and only 10-15 mins to the beach. Everything was spotlessly clean and there was a great selection of dvds and books for a relaxing evening in. My only request would... more
