  • We didn't want to leave! What a beautiful spot, so peaceful. Look forward to coming back.

    Miranda - Apr, 2021

  • Great stay. Stunning house. Well worth every penny.

    Jay - Feb, 2021

  • I’ve never stayed in a property that ticked every box in every way as this one. I am from America but travel to New Zealand every year a few times a year. I often am there for extensive work and this time I needed a place to recharge. I was blown away by the check in process, the hospitality, the absolutely perfect property, the suggestions of restaurants/vineyards and activities. Jacque who manages the property was AMAZING! Can’t even describe. New Zealand feels like a second home and a place I love so much. This experience heightened that. 10/10 or 20/20 if I could! X

    James - Nov, 2019

  • Amazing. The house looks like it came out straight out of a magazine. The view from the house is life changing. Perfect location too. Had the absolute best time in Waiheke. Looking forward to coming back!
