Are you looking for the perfect Waiheke accommodation where you can escape to for a few days and treat yourself to a well-deserved beach holiday? Waiheke Island is just a short ferry ride from downtown Auckland and features lots of places to stay, things to do, and breath-taking views to see – the ideal getaway for an individual, couple, or family. At Visit Waiheke Holiday Homes, you can find a beautiful holiday home where you and your fellow travellers can stay, relax, sleep, and enjoy the surrounding area on your holiday.
You could go lots of different places for your holiday, so why Waiheke?
It’s family-friendly. Some of the vineyards in Waiheke are family-friendly, offering perks such as play areas and snacks for kids. However, you can also find plenty of other things to do here with your little ones, including playing at the beach, stopping for gelato, going out for pizza, taking advantage of the free BBQ spots around the island, or exploring the island via kayak or even on horseback.
It’s also romantic. If it’s just you and your sweetheart, there are endless things to do here for two, such as having a picnic on the beach, touring the local wineries, treating yourself to a lovely dinner out, and much more.
It’s easily accessible. From downtown Auckland, the journey to Waiheke Island is an easy one. A 40-minute ferry ride will transport your entire group in comfort from Auckland directly to your destination. There are a number of ferry companies that offer rides complete with Wi-Fi, bars, and cafes operating every day of the year, so transportation to and from the island won’t be a problem no matter when you book your accommodation in Waiheke.
There are many wonderful places to stay on Waiheke Island. No matter how much you love your accommodation, however, you probably won’t want to stay in it the whole time you’re here. When you’re ready to go out and about, be sure to check out some of these fun things to do.
Book a wine tasting tour. Waiheke Island is home to 24 vineyards – a surprising number, considering that the island itself is only 92km2. As you can imagine, it’s hard to visit Waiheke without stumbling onto at least one winery – and that in and of itself is enough of a reason to visit.
Check out Ecozip Adventures. Start with the complimentary pick-up from Matiatia Wharf and take in a commentated bus tour on your way to Trig Hill. You’ll check-in and get geared up before flying smoothly through the air with a partner on three 200m dual ziplines. Then, take a scenic interpretive walk back to base, learning about the local plants and wildlife as well as the conservation efforts around our natural environment.
Travel the island on a kayak or bike. Kayaks and bicycles are two great ways to get around Waiheke Island – do both while you’re here to get the best out of the experience. Schedule a day to get out on the water in a kayak with your friends or family. Or, hire a bike and take advantage of the many local trails.
