We thoroughly enjoyed our spontaneous getaway to Waiheke, made that bit more special with our little Bach by the sea. It was clean, fresh, well appointed and in such a good location. We could easily walk to the beach, bakery, restaurant, cafe, grocery store, bus stop and even right into town. Highly recommend!

We had a great stay, the place was really cute and nicely furnished. Was great to be right by the beach and have plenty of places to lounge in the sun. The service was great and the place was clean and tidy. Thanks for having us.
