About this listing

Unique Balinese-style villa 1 km from Waiheke Island's best beach, Palm Beach. Jungle-style setting. Perfect for 6 -8 adults who want to socialise together in the main house, then retreat to privacy for sleep. Child-proof/friendly. Peaceful retreat.

The space

Waiheke Island has recently made international headlines, voted fourth best island in the world, and fifth best place in the world to live (Lonely Planet) Our family home is available for another family of up to 8 people, or 6 -- 8 adults who want to socialise during the day and evening, then sojourn to private bedrooms which are balinese style "balis" or as we say in the South Pacific: "fales." Alternatively, small children or an older child might want to make use of the pull out double wall bed in the lounge, to be closer to their parents.
The main house is smallish, with a small deck perfect for drinking wine in the evening -- and a huge barbecue available to make dinners easy.
Located exactly one km from beautiful Palm Beach and a small store and iconic fish and chip shop, this is the perfect place to base yourself at while you explore Waiheke Island. We are also just a ten minutes walk from the bus stop. We do have two cars and a scooter available too, with price/logistics to be negotiated if they were needed. MINIMUM BOOKING 5 NIGHTS -- AVAILABLE ONLY FROM DEC 18 2015 -- JANUARY 3 2016 . Refundable bond: $500.

Guest access

All of it except the caravan which is used as a home office

Interaction with guests

Please note that this house has not been available until now -- previously we have rented out only one of the sleep-outs, and were on site ourselves. So it's a new arrangement and we won't be around ourselves, but will have someone on call for you should anything come up.

Other things to note

There's a couple of cats, "Baby Haze" and "Knot" -- we will leave cat food -- or can arrange for someone else to feed them if it's a bother. They're quiet and low maintenance.

This is a very special spot, I loved it. Indeed, the fale is very simple and that's exactly what gets you into this island-feeling, somewhere between "Cast Away" and "Eat Pray Love". Ingrid is a lovely person, easy-going. Stroll the beaches, go to the Saturday market, don't forget to see the Sculpture Park at Connell's Bay... and enjoy life!

Mother, business woman and yogi. Pretty chilled and the house reflects that. It's neat, clean and tidy but not uptight.
