Absolutely delightful place. quiet private ocean beach, swimming pool and hot tub, views of water, beautiful lawn, impeccable furnishings, not too ornate, but extremely tasteful. Sorry for the run-on sentences, but I could run on and on about Hei Matau. The lovely owners provided food for the trip and great suggestions of things to do. The island of Waiheke is a perfect launch pad to New Zealand with its wineries, restaurants and local/organic flavors. Couldn't recommend the place more. We stayed with our three kiddies in the main house and it was perfect.
