Pam - March, 2019
Close to Oneroa and simple to find way around. Nicely appointed house. Good for 3 couples to stay in. Lots to do on Waiheke.

The property was in a great location, not in the heart of busy Oneroa, just a few minutes walk through the park to Oneroa where there were fabulous cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. The property is a nice 15-20 minute walk to the beautiful Cable Bay vineyard. The amenities were fantastic. Melanie from Waiheke Escapes was brilliant, very quick to respond to any queries we had and extremely friendly.

I highly recommend this bach, it is a short walk to Oneroa, very clean, has everything you need and is super cute. We had 6 adults stay and there was plenty of room for all of us.
Laura - September, 2019
We stayed at the Island villa for 8 nights over the new year break and it wad absolutely perfect. The house is in a fantastic location, 5 mins walk to the Oneroa shops (with lots of cafes, restaurants and little grocers) and only a 15 mins walk to Oneroa / Little Oneroa beach. The villa itself has everything you need for a relaxing stay, with lovely interiors and big front deck - perfect for al fresco dining and sundowner drinks in the afternoon. Would highly recommend to anyone considering a trip to Waiheke.

We had a delightful five week stay at the Mako Street residence. It really felt like a home from home! The house is perfect for a family with four generous double rooms and two en-suites. A large open plan kitchen/dining area perfect for entertaining in. It’s wonderfully located, very close to the Oneroa shops and beach so for those without a car it’s a great house. Waiheke Escapes were great to deal with and I would recommend this property to anyone coming over to Waiheke for a short or long term stay.

Fabulous stay in Island Villa. Excellent location, a short walk into Oneroa and close to the ferry. Would definitely book again! Thank you Waiheke Escapes for going above and beyond to make our stay possible!

'Better than we could have imagined!! We booked this stunning place for our bridesmaids and it was perfect. The host was very accomodating and lovely to deal with. All the little touches were an added bonus!'
Eroni - May, 2021
We absolutely loved Island Villa. The house is beautiful and suited us perfectly. It is spacious, and has a great view and indoor outdoor flow. It worked really well for our group. We also appreciated the location. It is within walking distance of the ferry, shops and Cable Bay vineyard. Perfect! We will be back.

Property Description

Step into this beautiful vintage villa and relax – your holiday has begun.

Enter the front courtyard garden with its four outdoor white chairs positioned for the afternoon sun. The front porch leads you into a spacious and airy lounge with large comfy couches and open plan kitchen and dining area. The well-appointed kitchen has everything you need to create a culinary masterpiece or simply to heat the takeaway gourmet pizzas.

Open the French doors to the large deck complete with BBQ, an outdoor dining setting and bar stools, where you overlook the park-like grounds at the rear of the home. Enjoy your coffee in the morning and drinks at the bar in the afternoon from this inviting space.

Two generous air-conditioned bedrooms are on this upstairs level. The master, with stunning bay windows, is twice the size of a normal bedroom and has its own basin and heated towel rail in the room. There is also a dressing table, chaise lounge and a freestanding wardrobe. From this bedroom you have direct access in to the family bathroom with separate shower and villa style bath, a rare commodity on the island. The second double bedroom has its own ensuite and a separate reading area and overlooks the back garden.

Walk around the side of the house to access the additional two garden bedrooms downstairs – one with a queen bed and the second with a double bed.

Kick back and relax in the shade on the lower verandah which is a great place to read your book or have a snooze in the hammock. The big grassy area is perfect for pets, for kids to run around or for a little back yard cricket.

Island Villa also has on offer:

- Full onsite laundry facilities. Washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board

- Full suite of cooking and entertaining appliances and utensils

- Heaters and fans for the lower bedrooms to keep them comfortable any time of year

- Child’s portacot and high chair

- FreeView and wifi

This is the perfect place to come home to after exploring the island and just a five-minute walk through the park to the shopping precinct for a long lunch, walk on Oneroa Beach or a leisurely dinner out. There is a Four Square supermarket, boutique bottle shops and the Island Grocer for your gourmet items. You are also minutes away from the community-run Waiheke Community Island Cinema and the Waiheke Community Art Gallery.

PLEASE NOTE: An exit cleaning fee of $155 applies to each stay. All linen and towels are supplied but please bring your own beach towels.
