Beautiful accommodation, million dollar views and just so spacious! The beds were so comfortable, the spa was an added bonus and it really felt like a home away from home. We highly recommend.

Great house with amazing views and a spa pool. Perfect for one large family or two smaller families. We had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend this holiday home.
Debra - June, 2022

Relaxing sanctuary away from city life but conveniently close to the ferry and Oneroa. Well-appointed deck complete with cover and fireplace for use in any weather. Amazing in the morning sunshine.
Sarah - May, 2022
The hosts were really easy to communicate with and the place had a beautiful view. Looked exactly like in the photos and the hot tub was the best part of the accommodation.
Wendy - May, 2022
Gorgeous setting with beautiful NZ birdsong. Easy walk down to Rocky Bay. The kids loved the spa, and the accommodation had everything required. Great communication from hosts.
Katie - April, 2022
Sunset Sanctuary easily accommodated 8 people. The house was modern and clean with all the necessary amenities along with beautiful views over Omiha Bay and beyond.
Waiheke Escapes were great to deal with.
Highly recommend this place and Waiheke Escapes.

This lovely property sits on a large, heavily-forested lot, so it's really private and peaceful -- while still providing a fantastic view from the deck over Omiha Bay. The kitchen and bathrooms are modern and clean, the kitchen has pretty much any utensil and appliance that could be desired (along with a supply of spices and some staples), and the beds are comfy and roomy. The only way I could see this property being even better would be to have more chairs and some footrests in the living room. [I would say that this bach only accommodates 8 people if 2 of them sleep together in one of the large beds, otherwise it's 7.] Our group loved this place, and would definitely stay here again!

Augustus - July, 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.

Oliver - March, 2019
“A wonderful home in a beautiful location. Attentive and responsive host.”
Philippa - March, 2019
Amazing place to stay great views, thoroughly exceeded expectations, spa pool was a bonus!
Andrew - March, 2019
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

Courtney - December, 2018
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
Absolutely loved our stay, so beautiful. Loved the spa.

Amazing stay, perfect view, comfortable, homely. Lots of beds. Very very impressed. So thank you :)
Kyrrah - November, 2018
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!
Christian - November, 2018
The booking experience was seamless with Waiheke Escapes they were prompt and concise in their communication. The property far exceeded our expectations, the wrap around deck is an underrated feature of the house. Above all it was clean and tidy, and provided all the facilities & amenities we needed. Highly recommend this property and look forward to booking in the near future.
Luke - September, 2018

Melissa - July, 2018
We absolutely loved our stay. The house had a warm, cozy feeling to it and was very accommodating. It was the perfect place for a family getaway and kid friendly. The host was very responsive and was flexible with check in times. Topped up with great amenities like a spa with a stunning view of the island. Hope to return again soon.
Sara - July, 2018
Fantastic property, location was great and views were unreal! Can't wait to come back and stay again. Waiheke Escapes were great to work with, always got back to me quickly and were very friendly and helpful.
Ann - April, 2018
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!
Natalie - January, 2018
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.
Anna - 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!
