This was a really fantastic accommodation choice we stayed in a studio apartment which was so beautiful and had a little balcony that looked out over the trees and a little bit of the ocean. The room itself was perfect size - spacious with kitchen space to self cater, tv, air con, really nice bathroom and ironing board etc.
Unfortunately we weren't able to spend much time there because we were on Waiheke for a wedding and had to go back to Auckland the next day! It would be such a lovely getaway, for a couple.
The location was maybe a 10 minute walk to Palm Beach which is stunning! At the bottom is a convenience store and a yummy fish and chip shop. It is a bit of a walk back up the hill.
If you need to catch the local bus, there is a bus stop at the bottom of the hill, we caught it to the ferry terminal.
A word of caution if you are using taxi's - it may be cheaper to rent a car as taxi's on the island are really expensive! We were charged $40 for a 10 minute drive!
There is quite a steep walk up to the reception area - people who are less mobile may need assistance, it is best if you get dropped off by a taxi or car right at the doors of the reception.
I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone wanting to go to Waiheke Island! I would love to come back to use more of the facilities.
