The best stay ever! Great house with everything you need and fantastic views over the valley. Short distance to the Onetangi beach - the best on the island. Highly recommend!

Fabulous little Waiheke hideaway in Waiheke Island - and good location with a short walk to the beautiful Onetangi Beach. The property is well set up with all of the mod cons.

About the neighbourhood
Grasshopper and Funky Cicada are a short hop to the best Waiheke Island has to offer - Onetangi Beach, beach bars, highly-acclaimed vineyards and restaurants, Waiheke Golf course, the bird reserve, weekend markets, the supermarket and more.

Waiheke Island is a scenic 35-minute ferry journey from the heart of Auckland City. Voted one of the top 12 holiday destinations in the world by Frommers Travel Guide (2009), the island has a sub-tropical climate and is famed for its golden-sand beaches, world-class vineyards, gastronomical delights, lively art scene and unspoilt nature.

Onetangi is the jewel of Waiheke Island. Located on the northern coast of the island, Onetangi is home to the longest and most spectacular beach on Waiheke Island, stretching a magnificent 2.4km of pristine coastline...
Car advised
How to get there
Waiheke Island is very easy to reach. You simply jump on a passenger ferry in downtown Auckland, relax and admire an iconic Volcano and be mesmerized by the stunning beauty of the Hauraki Gulf. Before you know it, about 35 minutes to be more precise, you'll be stepping off the ferry and heading for the bus to take you to Grasshopper or Funky Cicada.
Alternatively, you can bring the car and catch a different ferry in downtown or head over to Half Moon Bay for the speedy Sealink car ferry. Easy!!
