My husband and I stayed here for two nights in ealy January. We did not realize that the property is managed/owned by two separate companies. The company that managed our unit was Waiheke Unlimited. We were surprised to find out that there was a swimming pool at the facility but only the guests who booked through the other management have access to the pool. Waiheke Unlimited does not advertise the pool or a restaurant on the property. There is no phone or internet service in the unit but there is TV service. The unit was relatively clean but the floor was very sandy.
We stayed in a studio unit (#44) which did have a view of the beach from the balcony. Unfortunately, it was at the bottom of a steep drive with very limited turn around space. There were numerous units along the road and cars parked all along. We did not realize until we first went down the road to unload our bags that there was no space to turn so we had to back up the curving drive with a very narrow path between parked cars and a concrete retaining wall. It was a bit challenging as we are Americans and accustomed to the driver's position on the left side of the vehicle---and this was our first back-up of this trip. The drive was always full of cars during our stay so we ended up parking at the top of the hill in the rather overcrowded lot rather than attempt the challenge again. Parking in general at this facility is tight.
Because of the parking situation, I would be very hesitant to recommend this facility. I am not sure if this is the situation at all of the resort facilities on Waiheke. It is a beautiful Island and we truly enjoyed seeing the beauty of the entire island.
