The kitchen was stocked with everything you needed for a weekend away, and there was so much to choose from. The bedrooms were spacious...

We had a 2 night break here from Auckland and had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. The hosts, Fiona and Peter, were fantastic and we couldn't find fault with anything.Having the use of a car meant we could explore the island also. Thank you!

Our 4 day stay at Hei Matau in January introduced us to the best New Zealand has to offer.. Great hospitality, unique architecture, delicious breakfasts & evening bits, accurate advise on trails and things to do.

An amazing location overlooking the water. Peter and Fiona the hosts look after all your needs including preparing beautiful canapés each night, supplying an amazing cooked breakfast each morning all freshly prepared, picking you up from the ferry, making restaurant booking and taking you to and from the restaurants which are close by. The little extras they provide make your...

A truly magnificent experience. We stayed for a couple of nights after our wedding and were so happy with everything Hei Matua Lodge had to offer.

After around 11 days spent in Auckland we wanted to enjoy some peace and quiet on Waiheke Island, but we were not prepared for what was waiting for us there.
