Gull Cottage is an authentic NZ family bach at Orapiu on Waiheke Island where the 360 Ferry docks. It has great views, select vineyards with restaurants, wonderful walks and private beaches. You’ll love my place because of the original 1930s bach, silent nights, birdsong and clear skies for stargazing. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers and also for a family of four. The third bedroom is joined to the main house by a continuous deck. Parking - see below.

A nice two bedroom cottage half an hour from the ferry point. We spent our time exploring the island and a vehicle is required. We have made some suggestions for improvements. Were asked to bring own towels which wasn’t ideal coming from Australia. Appears to be lived in aside…

Hi Jaimee. A family bach, much used but not lived in. Will clear out some possessions but the problem is that it is small - 1930s style. We spend on it constantly and can't spend more. Shower and toilet cistern brand new. Other improvements to come.

Gull Cottage is the perfect place to get away from it all, the view is spectacular and all you need to do is sit on the balcony, listen to the wildlife and the ocean and watch the ships go past, so relaxing! It is further away from the tourists in Oneroa which I loved but you wi…

Hi Natasa. You were the perfect guest. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. The little house gets a bit musty when locked up but the sea breezes usually clear it out fairly quickly. Jenny

We didn't want to leave! Fell in love with Gull Cottage, the 'Far End' of the island and indeed every bit of Waiheke that we saw. Gull Cottage is very special. I gather that most tourist accommodation is on the other side of the island. Orapiu area is peaceful, pretty and full of…

The Bach is in a wonderful location, far away from the crowds. Great fishing spot at 500 m.

HI Fien Thanks for being a great guest. I have only just got over to clean again. I have to go from Auckland and take the car, so the clean often occurs quite a while before a guest arrives. Jenny

I am a counsellor and a researcher. I have a large family and this house at Waiheke is very much a family bach. I am a keen environmentalist and interested in positive politics. I am more interested in quality of life than in money and possessions. I am careful with my own things…
