The Owner Recommendations

My recommendations are based on my experience and local knowledge.

  • Best taxi company: Waiheke Independent Taxis 0800 300 372
  • Closest money machine: Oneroa village
  • Closest liquor store: 5 mins away - there's a Liquorland by Onetangi petrol station
  • Closest grocery store: Countdown supermarket in Ostend, milk and paper at Onetangi service station at bottom of hill
  • Best grocery store: Waiheke Fruit & Veg shop in Oneroa, lovely deli stuff, lovely staff and every spice you'll ever need.
  • Best free activities: Walking on Onetangi Beach, coastal walking tracks. Most of our guests can't bear to leave the house and pool and hide away from the world!
  • Best paid activities: Kayak tour on a sunny day. the Eco-Zip line at Onetangi
  • Best night restaurants: Mudbrick at sunset, get there early & enjoy a glass with the sunset over Auckland in the distance. Poderi Crisci (15 minutes away in the country) is a real find, great long lunches but bk in advance!
  • Best lunch eateries: For a real country experience, Man O War's beautiful tasting 'shed' - lovely wines,platters, right on the beach. Idyllic,worth the 20 minute drive - a taste of Waiheke away from everyone else.
  • Best breakfast eateries: Wai Kitchen,Oneroa - great food, sunny terrace,lovely staff
  • Best local café/coffee: Charley Farleys down on Onetangi Beach does great coffee
