My partner and I visited Waiheke for a weekend break and had a perfect experience with our stay at Hei Matau. Every aspect of the accommodation and hospitality was world class, with Peter and Fiona ensuring that we were well looked after (even before we arrived). The views from our room were stunning, offering the perfect amount of seclusion and privacy in idyllic green surroundings just meters from the beach. The communal areas are fantastic, offering equally stunning views across the gulf, and provide a good opportunity to enjoy the company of the hosts with a glass of local produce and some delicious home-made canapés! The breakfasts were another distinguishing feature, with a fine selection of fresh fruits, muesli and hot savoury offerings to enjoy (if you still have room!). Hei Matau is truly a special place with fantastic hosts, and i cannot recommend it highly enough.
