Wake up in the morning to beautiful sea views from your bed and more sea views from the lounge. Relax on a private balcony in the sun overlooking a lush garden with fruit trees.

Barbeque on the deck in the evening and watch the sun go down over the hills and Putiki Bay.
The property is fully fenced so perfect for children. There is a trampoline in the garden under a spreading olive tree.

Louise, Grant and Bren (and Benny the dog) welcome you like you are staying in their guest bedroom! Even though you have a beautiful apartment to yourselves! They are friendly considerate and thoughtful hosts that obviously love their side job and are super good at it!! We had a beautiful stay, the view is gorgeous and the area is amazing. Worth every every minute you spend there.

We stayed in Louise's studio one rainy weekend with our 1 year and it was fantastic. Louise was very helpful and even provided a port-a-cot. The place was wonderfully clean and inviting and warm. The toy cupboard was a winner and Olive (1) loved watching the Kereru and Tui in the trees right outside. I would definitely recommend this place. We are keen to come again in the summer so we can make the most of the kayaks, bikes and beaches.

Louise and Grant were great hosts. We loved our stay on Waiheke Island. The island is beautiful and relaxing. Their studio was very spacious, modern and private. Louise was very helpful in providing info and recommendations on what to do during our 3 day stay. Louise and Grant let us use their electric bicycles to explore the island.

Cool apartment unit in a quiet street close to town and other popular areas in the island. Grant welcomed us with tips on getting around too. The description of the unit is accurate and worth the price. Looking forward to coming back! Waiheke is paradise! And also Benny is a charm - such a cute, friendly dog!

Fantastic host from the very first contact. Due to impending cyclone Grant met us at the ferry complete with bike rack for my 2 wheels. New cable purchased so we could stream laptop through the tv. Nothing was a problem. Help ourselves to apples from the tree. Use of their ebikes (at a very reasonable cost). The accommodation was perfect. Warm.at night, cool during the day. Light and bright with everything provided that you could possibly want or need. Bed was super comfortable as were the chairs and couches. Conveniently located in the middle of everything. We will return.
