Our house is situated on beautiful Waiheke Island, 30 minutes by ferry from downtown Auckland. Waiheke is consistently voted one of the top ten island destinations in the world! It is close to Auckland but seems like a world away as it is so peaceful and serene. It is famous for its vineyards, olive groves and stunning scenery. Our house is only 50 metres from the waters edge and has gorgeous views. We have three sunny outdoor decks and the house is very well furnished and equipped. We have three kayaks, two bikes and a dinghy for your use! Waiheke has many local artists and craftspeople as well as top class restaurants and cafes. There are over 50 vineyards producing medal winning wine, olive groves producing exceptional olive oil, and many local food artisans.

The space

Our house is a modern split level home with polished wooden floors in the living areas. We have two bedrooms and a mezzanine area with a third bed. The master bedroom has a queen bed and opens onto outdoor decking. It has lovely water views. The bed has a new pillow-top mattress and is very comfortable! The second bedroom has twin beds and also opens to the outside decking with water views. The third bed is a double futon which is in a mezzanine area up from the living room. The kitchen/dining room is open plan and very well equipped. The house was renovated last year so is in top condition.

Guest access

Our house is on 4 levels from the garage to the mezzanine, although day to day living is over 2 levels. It may not be suitable for anyone with severe disabilities.


Our little corner of Waiheke is very peaceful and relaxed. We enjoy sitting on one of our three sunny decks with a glass of local wine and a bowl of locally grown olives! The views are beautiful and it is good to get out on the water in the kayaks or dinghy. We are close to the local golf course and tennis clubs and there are many walking tracks through protected reserves in the area. We are not short of excellent food and coffee on Waiheke and there are many arts and crafts. Swimming is good from our beach although it is not sandy. We are sometimes lucky enough to see dolphins, orcas or little blue penguins! If you are a keen fisherman, take out the dinghy and catch snapper for dinner!

Waiheke is consistently voted one of the top ten island destinations in the world for a reason! We have beautiful unspoilt beaches, amazing vineyards, incredible food in spectacular settings and an incredibly diverse mix of people. There are many different nationalities who call Waiheke home, including artists, craftspeople and musicians.

Getting around

We recommend a car for really getting the best out of the island. However there is a very good bus service and the nearest bus stop is less than 100m.
