Waiheke Island Accomodation over Summer

Myself and 2 friends are looking for accomodation on Waiheke Island over summer whilst we work at one of the restaurants. We are having trouble finding anything in our price range ($300-320 p.w) for the 3 months we will be there. We are looking in the Oneroa, Surfsdale etc area. Does anyone know of any good websites or people to get in contact with?

You could try renting a holiday home through www.holidayhomes.co.nz, www.holidayhouses.co.nz or www.bookabach.co.nz. I would hazard a guess that most of the places are more likely to be charging $300 per day than per week but you might be able to negotiate given that you want the place for a guaranteed period of time. Good luck.

mmm...not trying to be too pessimistic but,

Assuming you need a furnished place, as you are only looking for a 3 month rental - over summer on Waiheke I would say you have absolutely no chance of finding anywhere for your stated budget of $300pw for 3 of you.

Can you not ask the managers of the restaurant that you will be working in, for some suggestions ??

Hi there,

Unfortunately you will expereince considerable difficulty securing suitable accommodation - even in a higher price range. Many holidy home owners will return to the island during this busy period, and besides there is a huge demand for holiday accommodation over the same period. Suggest you place an advert in the Gulf News which is our local weekly and see what comes up - classified@waihekegulfnews.co.nz - www.waihekegulfnews.co.nz

Good luck, but peristence will pay off. Do you know anyone who owns a property on the island? You may have to book into one of the backpackers lodges. But someone may be advertising for flatmates!
