"Gulf View has the best view on the island" is the common comment we receive from our visitors. As recent converts to Air BnB Robyn and Colin are excited to share their special place and home on the island.

Adjacent to a popular walking track that links two of Waiheke's iconic beaches, Gulf View has stunning views over the beautiful Hauraki Gulf and back to Auckland city.

The space

Access to guest accommodation is gained from a private deck on which beanbags and an armchair provide seating for relaxing and enjoying the view to the birdsong of our native Tui's.

The living area is a bright and open space with a comfortable couch, TV, dining table and chairs.

A microwave, fridge and toaster are provided along with quality china, glassware and other kitchen essentials.

A plunger and a nespresso machine caters for coffee lovers and a range of teas for guests with a tea preference. Milo and hot chocloate is also provided.

The bedroom has a pillow topped queen bed and is dressed with bamboo cotton sheets and a feather and down duvet. Pillow options include bamboo.

Additional bedding and an electric blanket will keep guests cozy during winter months as will electric heating.

A clock radio is provided and the bookcase has a range of books and magazines for guests to peruse. A wardrobe provides hanging space for clothes.

The tiled bathroom has a large shower (excellent pressure), toilet, vanity and a heated towel rail.

Guests have a private deck or they are welcome to join their hosts on the upstairs deck and courtyard.

Robyn is a wonderful and friendly host. She is there if you need her but will also give you all the freedom you want. Her apartment is very cosy, comfortable and clean. It is located close to all the wineries and main areas. It would be best to have your own transport if staying here though as walking might be a but of a challenge (unless thats what you would like!) We highly recommend a stay with Robyn, Colin (and Ollie)!

We had such a wonderful stay there. Everything is just what we needed. Beautiful view, clean and tidy place, big breakfast and great hosts. Nothing was too much of a bother. We highly recommend it.

I wish I could rate Robyn's Airbnb 6 stars based on her amazing hospitality alone! Robyn went out of her way to make my stay incredibly relaxing, and I appreciate it so much. The accomodation is fantastic too, with everything you need and lots of lovely touches eg fresh flowers, and a generous and delicious breakfast. A highlight was reading a book on the deck in the afternoon sun, enjoying the beautiful view (which included a rainbow!) across the valley to the water. Thanks Robyn!!

Highly recommended accommodation. We could have stayed a week!! Warm, cosy, tidy and modern and then a huge, home-cooked (I'm talking fresh warm bread and home made granola) breakfast delivered in the morning. Robyn is the consummate host - helpful, caring and obliging. If you'd like a romantic getaway with great views, don't hesitate. I hope we'll be back :)

Response from Robyn:
Thanks Tim for your lovely review. We look forward to hosting you both for alonger stay next time.

Robyn User ProfileRobyn is a superhost.

A move in 2013 to experience the Waiheke lifestyle and escape the rush and bustle of city life in Auckland resulted in the purchase of Gulf View in early 2014

Robyn's career is in HR management and Colin is a management consultant working locally and in the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea. He is also a director of an online learning company.

Our greatest pleasure is to share a delicious home cooked meal and wine with friends and family whilst enjoying fabulous views regardless of the weather.

A favourite past-time is to attend the Waiheke Movie theatre where we sink into a comfy couch and enjoy an ice cream whilst watching the movie. Robyn loves foreign films, Colin prefers thrillers.

Our favourite destination is Turkey however we have yet to travel anywhere that we did not enjoy!

Our style of travel is to agree an itinerary and conduct our own research into accomodation options and activities. We prefer bnb accommodation and freedom travel as opposed to tours.

Our goal is for our guests to appreciate the beauty and lifestyle of Waiheke Island, our guest accommodation is viewed as clean and comfortable and they will be returning for another visit.
