We stayed here over a long weekend and it was absolutely stunning! You truly feel like you are in paradise – with breathtaking panoramic views over the ocean and only a two minute walk to the beach. The house itself is beautiful and stylish with a gorgeous open plan living area, wrap around deck, and beautiful bedrooms overlooking the water. We also loved the spa in the evenings! I will absolutely be back again – we loved every minute.

We really enjoyed our stay at this property, the open plan nature of the kitchen/living flowing out to the decking made sure that even with a larger group there was plenty of space. The abundant views are undeniably stunning – even from the spa! We would stay here again and highly recommend.
Abbey - December, 2017
Such a wonderful place to stay. We loved the stunning views from the expansive deck looking out all the way to Auckland while we soaked in the spa pool. A short stroll down to the beach for a dip and a stop at the cute little local cafe on the way back up. The beds were so comfy and the bird song made us feel like we were truly on holiday. Thank you, we will definitely be back!

We had a lovely stay. The view is absolutely stunning and it is great being so close to The Ostend shops. The big open plan kitchen is fantastic. The deck and the spa is such a plus. Gorgeous house, I can’t wait to come back!

We stayed at Sunset Sanctuary on Waiheke and absolutely loved the house! So bright and clean when we arrived. The large deck was great to hang out on, loved having spas in the evening. Each room had fans which was really nice on those hotter still evenings sleeping. The kitchen had everything we needed, the open plan ease really suited our family. We would love to stay again!

Spacious, private and relaxing

Stunning views in a stunning location. It was a nice escape from the mainland and an easy set up perfect for a base to see the wineries of the island. Definitely bring your swimmers for the spa pool!

Beautiful spot - would recommend

We loved our week here - two families of four and we were all very comfortable. The house is clean, modern and well equipped. The views back to the city are spectacular and the large balcony around three sides of the house provides great indoor/outdoor options all day and into the evening. We would return.

Alana - December, 2018
Spectacular views, clean and comfortable!

In our group 4 couples stayed at the Sunset Sanctuary. The property was spacious and had everything we were looking for. Quality bedding/towels, comfortable beds, plus all the amenities you could want. The appliances were all top of the range, easy to use and worked perfectly. The hot tub was fantastic with a view to die for. We loved the fans in the bedrooms, the bean bags and the eco friendly products around the house! Our stay felt very luxurious all round, thanks for an awesome time!

Samantha - February, 2019
“Perfect place for a weekend away with a group of friends. Mel from Waiheke Escapes was quick to reply to messages and very helpful. Would highly recommend”
Peter - February, 2019
Great location and outlook. Clean and tidy with a very responsive host.

Great place in a wonderful location. Relaxed and easy. Everything was there that we required for our stay. Fly screens the only thing missing with mosquitos in swarms at night. It meant keeping everything shut after dark. However, small issue overall during a beautiful stay.
