Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 7)
I was born in Auckland and have lived here all my life. My husband was born in Montreal, Canada, and his family moved here when he was 15. We have 4 lovely children who are married and we are lucky that they have also chosen to live in Auckland.

Why daleey718 chose
Waiheke Island is only 35 -45 minutes ferry ride from Auckland across the beautiful Waitemata Harbour and has everything you need for in a holiday - so why drive for hours to find that! It offers award-winning vineyards, beautiful beaches, excellent restaurants, kayaking, fishing, coastal walks, and bird reserves.
What makes this House unique
Our beach house is stunning because of its simplicity. From opening the front door and looking down the hall at the view, to the privacy of the house and the peaceful setting. The northerly views capture all day sun and this also means the concrete floor retains the heat through the day and evening. The location is superb. It is only 150m to a beautiful little safe beach with pontoon, only 1 km to 2 vineyards or 5 minutes drive to more beaches, cafes, and vineyards.

This property has everything you need for a relaxing getaway. Our stay in August was warm and cosy thanks to a fireplace. Bedding and linen were excellent. Kitchen well stocked.
Friday night Karaoke at the local Irish Pub - hilarious.... Would love to come back in the summer.
Thanks for that lovely review. Pleased you enjoyed your stay and you left our place absolutely perfect. Welcome back anytime
Another lovely stay at Bonnie Doon.
Dale went out of her way to leave the car for easy pickup from ferry terminal, which would have been amazing if we came in on the same ferry.
All that aside, the fire wood was stacked, lovely clean sheets on the bed and we had a lovely weekend despite the bad weather.
Fabulous homey house
Found the house really homey and relaxed yet modern with everything you need and more. There was so many things for the kids to play with. They loved the dress ups, movies and having their own wing of the house. The view from the back yard was beautiful. So nice to wind down with a Waiheke wine in the late arvo watching the kids run around the plentiful grass. I have no doubt we'll be back.
Great place to stay, kids enjoyed there own room upstairs and the play house outside. Great being able to fish from the rocks below the property, pity we ran out of time and didn’t use the kayaks available. Complementary chocolates and wine a nice touch :)
Perfect Christmas on Waiheke with friends
Fantastic home. Very well equipped. Luxury accommodation. Fantastic location walking distance to small bay where there is a swimming platform and you can use the kayaks provided with the accommodation.
Views that take your breath away and very accommodating hosts
Will definitely return
Was an absolute pleasure having you and your friends from the UK stay at our place. Thanks for those lovely comments and for leaving our place spotless. I'm so pleased you had a great time and you would be welcome back anytime..
Fabulous home for a family weekend away. Clean, lovely indoor, outdoor living. Dale was so accomodating, everything we needed was there, we arrived earlier than planned, and left later than expected. Nothing was any trouble, and Dale even left a car for us for a small fee. I would highly recommend this beautiful home for a visit to Waiheke, and I will certainly be back during the Summer. Can't wait
That's such lovely feedback. It was a real pleasure to deal with you and so happy you enjoyed your stay. I know you had perfect weather for one day and you are welcome back anytime. Thanks for leaving our house in such good condition.
Besides Waiheke being renowned for its vineyards, restaurants and beaches, there are some spectacular coastal walks with wonderful views across the harbour and back to Auckland City. These take approx. 1 hour and you will need comfortable walking shoes.
