- “We loved our stay at Bach on Burrell!! Not only was the place perfectly located for everything we had planned on Waiheke, but the Bach itself was perfect. Very clean and comfortable. I think the best part though was the view! We loved waking up with that view during our stay, and even saw Dolphins one morning. It was just all perfect. Richard was a wonderful host, and even stopped by to show us some of his favorite things to do on the island. We would absolutely stay again! One note for travelers, only because we had some set backs, is be sure to book your ferry ride over a day or two before. We didn’t, and had to wait for a later ferry to get over from Auckland. They fill up quick! Thanks again Richard for everything!” Jessica Jessee Fen 2018

John Steven, Nov 2015
- We loved the privacy of the bach and found the location really handy. Only took a few minutes to get to from the car ferry. Gorgeous views made relaxing a pleasure especially with the spa pool on the deck. We didn't do any cooking while there but everything was there if required including a BBQ. Over all we were very happy.
Raewyn, Nov 2015
- The accommodation could not be better. We absolutely loved it and my husband said that it is by far the best accommodation we have ever stayed in, in all our travels. The view was spectacular, the interior of the house was perfect for 2 people, clean, neat, modern and really comfortable. Heating for the cold nights, BBQ with a view and a private Spa pool with a view. It truly was an incredible experience. We did not want to leave.
Lindi Boyd, NOv 2015
- The property is very well set-up and the location is fantastic - west facing so it gets great evening sun. The only thing missing is an auxiliary cord to connect an ipod or phone to the stereo system. We will definitely stay again!
Nick Francis, Oct 2015
- The photos really did not do this beautiful little slice of heaven justice, i would definitely recommend this place to friends and family and the view was spectacular.

With thanks Jim & Elizabeth, Brisbane, Aug 2015

The outdoor spa was a real treat as was the easy outdoor flow from the inside living area to outside deck for the morning coffee or late night drink! We had a fantastic weekend away and our first trip together leaving the kids in 8 years! (8 year old and 2 year old). We couldn't have picked a better place to relax! Thanks Bach on Burrell! :-)

- An awesome and quiet place for the prefect getaway! Very happy with our stay!
Siu Langi, Aug 2012
- Props to Richard for knowing instantly that we were Aucklanders haha! Took his advice and left the blinds open all weekend long. Bach on Burrell is a very unassuming property but when you walk in and take in the double deck and AMAZNG views, you realize you're going to have a perfect stay. Spa was incredible, loads of peace and quiet and great place to BBQ and just chillax. Thanks for a great stay, will try and make it back.
Mridula Narayan, Aug 2012
- After reading all the reviews, we booked this bach for our first anniversary. It is as everyone says...the perfect romantic getaway. The interior is beautifully furnished and the view from the deck amazing. It’s a great location and we took in a few walks nearby before soaking in the spa... a great way to end the day. Bach on Burell was far better than the honeymoon room we had when we married in Waiheke. Would definately go back.
Tracy Di-Cesare, May 2012
- An amazing spot, beautiful place with lots of sunshine and privacy. Would definately go back there again. Photos dont do it justice.
Kerri Gorrett, Mar 2012

The perfect weekend getaway in this romantic bach. Great views over the water and a very relaxing place to stay. The weather was wild but our time at Waiheke was still thoroughly enjoyable.
