We have just spent a lovely few days at the Iluka B&B on Waiheke Island. The hosts, Kathy and John, could not be more welcoming or accommodating.
The rooms were comfortable and quiet; perfect for recovering from a flight from the UK. Kathy has a great attention for detail and the rooms contained pretty much everything we needed. The rooms are not in a fully self-contained annex, but are integrated into the house. Having said that, there is plenty of privacy.
The breakfasts were generous and delicious, with high quality ingredients, really setting us up for the day.
Iluka is set off the beaten track and away from the more touristy parts of the island. There are lovely views of the sea from the breakfast room and it is a stone's throw from the start of a great tramping track along the coast/cliffs to the Te Whau winery, which has one of the loveliest views on the island.
