  • Fantastic view and perfect house for 2 families to comfortably stay. Richard was very kind and let us have a late check out and shared lots of helpful recommendations of things to do on the island.
    Felicity Calvert, Apr 2024
  • Absolutely stunning location. The view over looking the bay was even more pretty in person! Great house - fully equipped. Clean & tidy. Very responsive host & easy communication. My two nephews loved playing on the beach & very safe. Highly recommend, we had the best time!
    Katie Crow, Mar 2024
  • We found the Golden Sands accommodation very enjoyable.  All our needs were met, and the location was certainly ideal with an amazing view of the beach.  We certainly liked sitting out on the deck and admiring the sea views. Thank you also for meeting us on arrival and greeting us.Everything was clean and tidy with all the stated amenities provided and freely available for use. A very enjoyable four days were certainly appreciated by all in our party.
    Chris Grainger, Mar 2024
  • This accommodation was exactly as described. There was plenty of space and the views were breathtaking. The house is old but all the appliances are top notch, the beds are very comfortable and the water pressure in the showers is good. The beach was literally at the end of the drive and the sea was very good for swimming. The bus stop was a ten minute walk uphill but we had a car so that wasn't an issue. We very much enjoyed our stay at this property with our extended family and would highly recommend it.
    Nancy Taylor, Feb 2024
  • What an incredible place to stay. We basically lived on the deck overlooking the beach and enjoying the fabulous weather. A walk down the driveway and we were on the beach for a swim. Amazing location and the house suited us well.
    Steph Cooper, Jan 2024
  • Amazing quiet location with perfect views.
    Cathal, Dec 2023

    Justine Alley, Apr 2023
  • We really fell in love with Waiheke and enjoyed meeting you and Sharonagh. Also, you were right about Wai Cab Co! Definitely the best. A graet proeprty and great location. Thanks again, Tom & Derry
    Thomas MacBride, Mar 2023
  • We had a wonderful time staying at Golden Sands. Very accommodating for us and our grown up children. Wanted something special for my 60th birthday. I was not disappointed.
    Kim-Louise Hockly, Mar 2023
  • This place wasn’t within walking distance to shops but was in a great spot for swimming, kayaking (you were allowed to use the kayaks and electric bikes) and snorkeling. There was another hidden gem of Waiheke close by … the Sacred Blessing Sanctuary .. a FABULOUS garden with the most wonderful Paul Dibble Sculptures which we wouldn’t have known about unless we had met two wonderful women who worked there. I would stay here again because of the property managers and the proximity to the water
    Kim Taylor, Feb 2023
  • Perfect house in a perfect setting. Was sad to leave but will be back next year.
    Patrick Liddy, Feb 2023

    Leanne Goodger, Feb 2023
  • Stunning location. Views from the deck were a highlight. Great little beach for swimming. House is spacious with the two seperate living areas and two kitchens.
    Marley Brady, Jan 2023
  • Could not recommend this place more! The location and view were unbelievable. Richard was a very responsive host and provided some wonderful recommendations on the island.
    Emily Steimal, Dec 2022
  • Being so close to the beach on a no exit road was so nice to hear the ocean and the birds in the bush. 
    Linda Matheson, Dec 2022
  • 5 stars. I booked the house for a 50th birthday weekend. We had an open door to anyone who wanted to stay/visit. Needless to say the house was full every day with visitors either for a day on beach or overnight for a barbecue and morning swim. The house is in a quiet location, 10 minutes from the ferry, and the beach is at the end of the drive way.
    Dominic Tolkien, Nov 2022
  • We had such a beautiful stay - the house is in the most gorgeous location, and with access to e-bikes it was easy to pop into oneroa for supplies. Our host was easy to contact and super helpful - Thank you so much for having us!!! We might have to come again sometime xxx
    Liv Kelly, Nov 2022

  • Loved the area, the deck was great with close access to the beach.
    Rob Young, Apr 2022
  • An hour on a meandering ferry takes you from the city into a world of tranquillity at this cottage on the hill. With expansive views out over the Hauraki Gulf and dotted islands to the horizon, just pick what deck you want to drink it all in from.
    At the bottom of the drive lies a picturesque bay that almost felt like our own private beach and was perfect for our young family to wade at the lapping shoreline. We didn’t venture far from the property but with an abundance of world-class eateries and amazing wineries all within short scenic drives, our go to was Oneroa for amazing coffee and views out over the water.
    We had a bbq on the top deck and watched the sun sink lazily beyond the water's edge and felt any stresses we previously had sink away with it.
    Charlotte Curd, Mar 2022
  • Great views and excellent swim/play beach for our young kids. Already booked for end of year visit.
    Liz Giles, Jan 2022
  • The perfect beach front location for a relaxing holiday! Sandy Bay is great for safe swimming and we made good use of the kayaks.
    Jason Poyner, Jan 2022
  • Awesome location, well set out home, that sleeps 6 comfortably and 8 with the sleepout. Thank you great weekend away.
    Alice Wilson, Jul 2021
  • We all had a fantastic 5 days on the island, Golden Sands suited our group with the large open space upstairs and the bedroom layouts, and being so close to the bay. We will definitely be back to explore more of the island.
    Judy Nieuwkoop, Jun 2021
  • This is an amazing spot, we hired a car and it was so easy to get around. We enjoyed a swim every morning BBQ dinner of snapper caught from the kayaks, on the deck, and beautiful sun and sunsets. Lots of walks/runs and a very comfortable home base. Spectacular views endless entertainment watching all the boating activity. A great spot to be on waiheke , especially for our family who loves the water.
    Annemarie Lidgard, May 2021
  • This is such a great place. Right next to the beach. Magnificent views. Richard was also a super helpful and friendly host. This was a boys trip. Will make sure to take my family next time. We had a great time!
    Dhanjay Prasad, Mar 2021
  • Another awesome few days spent at the Sandy Bay property.  We really love it there and had a great time again this year.  Of course the fabulous weather really makes it but the house is super and has everything we could need or want.  There's nothing we were missing and we always feel very comfortable and settled there.  Once again, we will be back...!
    Becca Moses, Feb 2021
  • 'Amazing beach retreat. Highly recommended!'
    Milan Cooper, Dec 2020
  • We absolutely loved this bach. Super clean and comfy, amazing view and location, still bach-like, and awesome extras to make it a real experience. The e-bikes were a huge hit and great way to see the island. Highly recommended for families or friends.
    Wendi Croft, Dec 2020
  • Beautiful View, Good Access to Secluded Beach.
    Edmond Leung, Nov 2020
  • We had a lovely stay at this spacious, relaxing home. Richard was super helpful with his recommendations and overview of the island. A great base to explore Waiheke.
    Maggie Shui, Sep 2020
  • Beautiful idyllic spot perfect for a weekend getaway steep hill driveway but worth the effort.
    Jennifer Rihari, Jul 2020
  • A great location with outstanding views. The house was perfect for the six of us. Excellent communication from our host, Richard. We can't wait to go back.
    Lee Treadaway, Jul 2020
  • Amazing location. Loved having access to the kayaks, dingy and e-bikes.
    Frances Ramsay, Mar 2020
  • 'We had a fabulous stay at this property. We had daily swims in the ocean as you're right on the lovely beach, we took down a kayak too which was great until we had to lug it back up the steep driveway! Loved the views from the sunny decks. Worth walking 5 mins up the road to Enclosure bay at high tide, very pretty. Richard is full of local vineyard knowledge. Agree that its a bit isolated and that a car is needed- but most of Waiheke is like that! We did not use/book the sleep out'
    Chanelle Rodeka, Feb 2020
  • 'Great place! Super close to the beach, with walks just outside the front door. Good and quick communication with the hosts as well.'
    Ida Lindgren, Feb 2020
  • 'Excellent place in Sandy Bay with the beach and view at your footsteps. Everything catered for including electric bikes. Lots of space, great for a big family or friends group. Waiheke scuba diving, fishing off the boat or rocks, swimming or splashing - it’s all there. 40 minute walk to Oneroa along through the bush and along the beach just want to you before a good coffee. Waiheke 5 O - taxis - fixed price for a group is good value. Vineyards a must at cable bay and mud brick and 372 restaurant in Onetangi is beautiful food and wine at the upper end of budget. Another trip is planned.'
    Chris Butson, Feb 2020
  • 'Spacious house with a gorgeous view. Perfect for entertaining. Definetely the highlight of our New Zealand trip!'
    Pyrawy, Feb 2020
  • Awesome property in a superb location with everything there - loved the kayaks and ebikes. Well suited to our family of 6, with kids having separated accommodation in the lower level of the house. We all had a fabulous time and would definitely stay there again.
    Becca Moses, Jan 2020
  • 'Lovely family bach, plenty of space for two families and even had two balconies! There were kayaks and a boogie board available, which we loved. The beach was a hop, skip and a jump, and not too many people, which we also loved. Amazing view! Being able to barbecue in the evening sun was just gorgeous!'
    Elizabeth Fagen, Jan 2020
  • A fantastic house & location. We will definitely book again. Thanks Richard for your insight into the the Waiheke scene. Most valuable. Cheers
    Graham Head. Jan 2020
  • 5 Star. What a stunning view from the property! We absolutely rated our stay there and will book again!
    Darryn Head, Jan 2020
  • 'Lovely place with amazing views. Great for the kids as the beach was a stone throw away.'
    Poohan Nathan, Dec 2019
  • Great property and location. Well set up with separate areas for two families. Easy walk to the beach and beautiful views from many rooms of the house. The sleepout was a bonus for a quiet place to retreat which our daughter enjoyed. Overall a lovely place to stay.
    Judith Allison, Dec 2019
  • Five stars !! What an amazing trip, I've never been to waiheke and the little bay we stayed in right on the beach linked to our driveway was wonderful. Bring your own vehicle just makes things so much easier as well. Coming back in a few months time for sure.
    Jessica Dinington, Sep 2019
  • Amazing views! Beautiful location. Richard came and sat with us giving us a very in depth run down of things to do - very helpful guy. I would recommend having some transport as it is a 10minute walk from a bus stop - the view makes up for this though. It is a seriously stunning property, powerful showers and very clean. We would stay again!”
    Nikki McDonald, June 2019
  • A fabulous place to stay for a family get together. Well equipped, clean & excellent location. Sunny June weather meant we were able to make good use of the kayaks, dinghy & bikes. Would highly recommend.
    Andie, Jun 2019
  • We absolutely loved this house and location. The EBikes and Kayaks were an added bonus which we loved. Richard was very informative about the island and the bottle of wine was a lovely touch. We will definitely be back. Weiheke Island is a secret treasure and we had a wonderful time there. Highly recommend.

  • Our stay was wonderful thank you. Great property with a lovely view. 
    The property manager was very helpful on arrival also. 
    Very minor issue with the smoke alarm so close to the kitchen meant it went off while trying to cook anything but otherwise holiday was perfect.

The beach in particular is a lovely bay, we encountered sting rays. Had Wi-Fi. Kitchen has a cupboard that's like a tardis. We enjoyed our stay here, we got married on sandy bay beach and had a lovely reception at the waiheke resort palm beach."

Having access to kayaks, electric bikes! just adds so much to the experience of Waiheke. Attention to detail such as the bbq tools, lighter and equipment laid out ready to use shows a real consideration to making the experience fantastic. Highly recommended. Thank you Richard and thank you Golden Sands!"

    Raywin Rae, Aug 2015 
  • Excellent location overlooking the beach which is a stone's throw away. House is lovley and in great condition, has everything you need for a weekend getaway. Just needs to be clearer in the description that bedroom 3 is an outside sleepout, not part of the main house :)
    Kathryin Lee, Apr 2015
  • Fantastic property in a glorious setting. Well supplied in terms of equipment and so on - wish we could have had a week to try everything out! 
    Tooki Proctor, Mar 2015
  • Golden Sands is the ultimate Waiheke holiday home. It is luxurious, comfortable, has a very well equipped kitchen and the deck off the lounge is simply the best. You can sit on this deck all day long and watch the world go by. The views are simply stunning and you are so close to the water that you can hear the waves lapping against the shores of Sandy Bay. It is perfect for families, (the beach is super safe) and groups and is a very spacious well set out home. They have thought of everything for this beach home and we could not have had a more relaxing, invigorating, peaceful , happy holiday. I cannot speak more highly of this property to rent at anytime of year to enjoy this incredible part of Waiheke island. Downstairs can be used as a teenagers retreat leaving the upstairs for adults - everyone undisturbed and happy ! This really is an incredible home and well worth a visit. I am still dreaming about sitting on the deck and looking at the sea view ! Bliss.
