What a amazing place. We loved our stay at Mariner. With 180 degree sea views that you can soak up from the corner couch inside or the outside lounges. You can have dinner inside or out. Wander the sweet garden and sit under the trees. There's only birdsong and the sound of the waves on Onetangi Beach. Beds are super comfy and the hosts are marvelous. Stay here if you can. The stairs down to the beach are just a stone's throw away. Island Bliss. Thank you.

Amazing views of Onetangi from the bach! The bach is a perfect place for a romantic getaway, loved the fact we were allowed to get our two little dogs with us. Well equiped place, would def be coming back.

Beautiful stay, amazing vista, comfortable beds. Every amenity you could wish for.

Richard - Sep, 2022

A relaxing place to stay. Clean, quiet and comfortable. Bird song and views. Short stroll to the beach. Raewyn is the perfect host.

Tim - Jul, 2022

We had a wonderful honeymoon on Waiheke! The location was great, with a beautiful view to the sea and just a short stroll down the steps to the beach. A truely relaxing place to unwind. Close proximity to wineries and beaches. We couldn’t recommend the place highly enough!

Incredible stay highly recommended!

Daniel - Jan, 2022

We loved our stay at "The Mariner". It was perfectly located for what we needed and the house itself was gorgeous and very well thought-out. A return trip is definitely on the cards!

Mark - Dec, 2021

Perfect retreat with amazing views. Loved the sounds of the waves and birds Very well set up with everything you need and sparkling clean.

Sue - Jun, 2021

We had a fabulous stay at the Mariner. The King bed was very comfortable and the view from the window seat was my daily favourite place to sit. I liked how there was an iPad that held all the house information on it and Waiheke information. Communication with Stay was detailed and efficient.

Rachael - Jun, 2021

Great communication at the beginning to sort out the parking outside the place, was fast and efficient. Nice place to stay, got everything you need if you are cooking. Heat pump worked so well, peaceful view facing the sea but not too noisy. Was handy to book with Stay Waiheke with rental car together. Would book again in the future! Well done!

Weiwei - May, 2021

Lovely open plan home with all day sun on the deck. Every detail has been attended to, to make sure you have everything for your stay!

Lisa - Apr, 2021

This property is gorgeous and well appointed - private, close enough to walk to the beach but elevated enough for cooler breezes. Views are just spectacular! Good mod cons: Particularly appreciated the Nespresso machine and Apple TV for Netflix. Note that there is not a washing machine at the property although had all other mod cons and lovely extras. Beds were very comfortable and the ability to sit on the deck and just watch the changing seascape was breathtaking. Absolutely loved it and cannot wait to return!

wonderful accommodation with fantastic views! highly recommend! - Nov, 2023

Had a great couple of days staying at the Mariner, the location, cleanliness and description, matches the accommodation exactly….and the fact that the owner left us some delicious pastries on arrival, results in this Bach being highly recommended (we’ll definitely be back)
