House had all the mod. cons, was spotless and very comfortable. Well thought out set-up great views to the surrounding area. Beds were comfortable and bedrooms were upstairs away from the living areas and the deck outside looking over the views was enjoyed by all. Close proximity to some of the well-known Wineries, sunshine nibbles and wine on the deck,... more

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.... more

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

How to get there
Waiheke Island is very easy to reach. You simply jump on a passenger ferry in downtown Auckland, relax and admire an iconic Volcano and be mesmerized by the stunning beauty of the Hauraki Gulf. Before you know it, about 35 minutes to be more precise, you'll be stepping off the ferry and heading for the bus to take you to Grasshopper or Funky Cicada.
Alternatively, you can bring the car and catch a different ferry in downtown or head over to Half Moon Bay for the speedy Sealink car ferry. Easy!!
