Reviews from Past Guests

Review by Brad (Stayed in May)

Great place to stay, beautiful piece of Bush outlook with a huge amount of bird life, great island, everything was perfect, thank you

Review by Maren (Stayed in January)

We loved this home in the middle of Waiheke bush and very close to beautiful Hekerua Bay. We felt incredibly welcome and had a wonderful relaxing time. The house is compact and is will equipped.
It has two lovely deckings and most of the day the big tree, which the house seems to have been built into, provided shade for us. It would have been great to have sun lounges, but that was the only thing that we missed. We stayed for over 4 weeks and it was still sad to leave. We can highly recommend this Holiday home.

Review by Julie (Stayed in November)

Absolutely perfect. Had a lovely time and planning to come back. It was exactly as described, beautifully clean and the beds were comfortable.
