The house was just what we needed - a short walk to the bus stop, plenty of pots and pans for cooking, and killer views out all upstair windows. We would love to come back when there is some sunshine as this house is amazing.

  • What a great place to stay. Amazing views across the island with multiple different bays and islands all around. An excellent deck for entertaining with plenty of room for the BBQ. The hob wasn't working when we were there but a temporary one was dropped off the next day for us to use. We would certainly stay there again as it suited the three couples with upstairs and down stairs accommodation.
    Andrew Wilson, Apr 2022

  • Highly recommend staying here! The pictures don't do the view justice! Easy walk to town and to nearby beaches and treks. Beautiful spot!
    Erika Flavin, May 2021
  • The house is amazing, views are impeccable. Rooms are just a perfect size with 2 bathrooms and a separate toilet that is great for a big family or extended family.Not far from Oneroa and the bus stop isn’t far at all if Taxi’s are too expensive. I would totally recommend a car when here so you can go to the supermarket and get the essentials you need.
    Kate Lawton, Apr 2021
  • We enjoyed our stay at this great family property. It was great for a larger group, with lots of room for everyone. The deck and outdoor space has an amazing view and the property was close to Oneroa and the shops, restaurants and wineries
    Alice Paul, Mar 2021
  • Lovely, tidy, private and the most beautiful views!!! Very self contained- if you bring your own groceries and plan to cook you'll find all the utensils there. The layout of the house was great and was able to cater for a large amount of us. Highly recommend staying here. 
    Courtney Wheeler, Feb 2021
  • Great views and manager in Richard who was very helpful. Clean.
    No WIFI was a surprise - useful to have in case needed these days (even though people are meant to be on holiday)
    Could do with a bigger TV but the view out the deck is much better.
    Vincent Chan, Jan 2021
  • Great for a group of people, relaxing accommodation.
    Danielle Swart, Jan 2021
  • This stay was absolutely fabulous! The house is amazing and Richard took extra time and effort to meet us and give us the low down on how to have the best time in Waiheke and make the most of our stay. Fantastic. Couldn't recommend more highly.
    Danielle Swart, Jan 2021
  • Our family stayed for a week over the height of summer. Our kids loved the property with lawn out the back for games and the deck has amazing views. Well stocked kitchen and comfortable bedrooms.
    Hannah Croft, Dec 2020
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in oneroa at Bayview Retreat this weekend. The weather really came to the party for us! We especially loved happy hour on the deck with the beautiful view, spacious lounge which was great for kids and comfortable and clean rooms. Bit of a walk to the beach (back home all uphill) but worth it once you're there. Can get a bit hot on the deck with no shade but was excellent for short stints outside in the sun. Will definitely stay again.
    Rebecca Poole, Nov 2020
  • 'A spacious Bach with the most spectacular 270 views of oneroa, little barrier island and the coromandel! Photos don’t do this place justice! Park up on the north facing deck and soak it all up! Definitely the best side of the island!! Thanks for a fabulous stay!'

    Joanna Lewin, Jan 2019
  • Amazing views and great open plan living.
    Amazing views, lovely light filled rooms. All you can hear in the mornings is the birdlife. The open plan kitchen/living area was really easy going. We BBQ’d quite a lot on the deck (photos do not do it justice) and the back garden was perfect for lounging around in under the trees.
    Overall a really easy and enjoyable place to stay, lots and lots of book reading on the deck went down. Would definitely recommend.

The house captures all the amazing things of Waiheke with the panoramic views of the island from its large deck. The house is no less than 5 minutes from the main town square. It is a hidden gem on a beautiful island. Highly recommended.
