“Fantastic place”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

SeaDream is located in the heart of the small village of Oneroa. Shopping and restaurants are just a few steps away. The room is clean, comfortable and luxurious. A small sun room offers a place to relax and admire the gorgeous view of the sea. Outside the back door is a lovely patio with table, chairs and a barbecue grill. A path leads down to the beach. We didn't meet Carrie while we were there, but Trevor was a wonderful host. He even drove us to an electronics store to buy a New Zealand cell phone and sent us text messages while in the store to make sure I understood how to work the phone. He couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. We definitely would recommend SeaDream as a beautiful place to unwind and enjoy the sounds and sights of the ocean.

Room Tip: Wonderful place to stay.

We stayed a while ago, I'm writing a very late review here. We stayed in December 2011.

We stayed in Figtree for two nights and it was lovely with beautiful views over the bay. Everything we needed was there and it was luxurious with a homely atmosphere. There are two apartments situated down a drive in Oneroa. This makes it an easy walk to shops and restaurants but were very private and secluded. We found them great value for money compared to some of the very pricey hotels dotted around Waiheke.

Trevor was a great host, he dropped us off at the ferry terminal when we were leaving.

A wonderful little retreat from the city hustle and bustle. I would recommend if you want to chill and soak up the Waiheke vibe.

Room Tip: Figtree is larger.

Spending time at Seadream is like escaping to another world. The location is spectacular and the views are probably the best on the island. Carrie and Trevor are wonderful hosts and go out of their way to make your stay memorable. The Kowhai unit is extremely comfortable and has everyything that is needed for a short stay. The two essentials I look for in accomadation are a comfortable bed and a good shower and the Kowhai unit provides both. Seadream is top of my list of places to stay on Waiheke.

Room Tip: Both units at Seadream are sunny and well located. Kowhai is smaller than FigTree and is probably mo...

Tucked away down a long drive underneath a big house are the 2 seadream apartments
with spectacular views out over Oneroa bay.
The apartments are lovely, well laid out and spacious with everything you need for a short stay
and they are right in the heart of Oneroa - close to shops / restaurants.
The apartments had Sky TV (cable) with a full range of channels and outside there was a path that joined up with the main path down to Oneroa bay.
This is a truely magical place and our only regret is that we only had 1 night to enjoy it.
We would definitely stay here again when we come to Waiheke Island.
