The Cottage Waiheke Holiday Home

Booklovers Cottage provides approximately 110 square metres of generous living space comprising a spacious living/dining area opening to the sun with folding/sliding doors leading onto an attractive private gravel outdoor area with outdoor dining table, seats and benches and a sun umbrella.  Have your breakfast in the morning sun listening to the sound of native birds in the near-by bush.

Holiday Home Waiheke Island

At one end of the living room a well equipped kitchen with equipment to cater for up to six people, with gas cooktop, microwave oven, dishwasher and full sized fridge available for those who wish to self cater.  A gas barbeque is available if required.

One or two super-king ensuite bedrooms opening off the living room are available depending on the booking made. The rooms have pleasant outlooks either onto the adjacent sculpture park and wetlands or out towards the adjacent native bush.  Each bed can be configured as superking or two king sized singles. The main bedroom has a generous terrace providing sunny outdoor seating in the afternoon and evening or a discrete breakfast area for summer mornings.  The ensuite bathrooms each has a toilet, shower, and one or two hand basins.  The cottage sleeps four adults.

Both bedrooms have generous built-in wardrobes.

The living room is heated by a very efficient log burning fire, which provides a cheerful background on winter evenings, while electric oil heaters are available for the other rooms.  Through air circulation provides pleasant cooling on summer nights.

In addition to the ensuites there is a toilet independent of the bedrooms to provide for day time visitors, and a separate fully equipped laundry.

Transport on Waiheke

Because Booklovers Cottage is about 1km from the nearest bus stop we recommend that guests have a vehicle for their stay here. Unless you are happy to walk about 20 minutes on a fairly gentle climb to the bus, or use one of the island's taxi companies ($35 to $50 from Matiatia), we suggest using Sealink ferry (from Half Moon Bay or the City), or renting a car from one of the island's rental firms.

Minimum Bookings

Minimum stays vary according to the dates of your booking.  Generally the minimum stay will be 2 nights, however at Christmas and New Year this is extended to 5 nights and for the rest of January and part of February it is 3 nights.  Minimum stays are also extended at some long weekends.  

Bookings for two people are made for the use of one bedroom only.  The entire cottage provides for a maximum of four occupants.  An additional charge is made for each person beyond the first two or if the second bedroom is used.  

No Additional Exit Cleaning Fee
