    “We loved our time staying at Kereru - a quirky and intriguing holiday home!”

    Highlights were the amazing outdoor areas and indoor outdoor flow with the bifold doors, the fruit on the gorgeous fruit trees, the kitchen which is a joy to cook in, the lovely collection of books and the addition of the outdoor jenga, and the proximity to a lovely wetlands walk and the closeness of the stunning Palm Beach. It's also just a short drive to many other amazing spots ready to be discovered on the island. And a bonus is that the supermarket is so close by too. Our only suggestions ...

    Highlights were the amazing outdoor areas and indoor outdoor flow with the bifold doors, the fruit on the gorgeous fruit trees, the kitchen which is a joy to cook in, the lovely collection of books and the addition of the outdoor jenga, and the proximity to a lovely wetlands walk and the closeness of the stunning Palm Beach. It's also just a short drive to many other amazing spots ready to be discovered on the island. And a bonus is that the supermarket is so close by too. Our only suggestions to make the Kereru experience even better are: - a better curtain across the bathroom to make it more private - moving the glasses and mugs in the top kitchen cabinets down - these are quite dangerous as even when we thought they had been locked into the open position, they fell down - we escaped too bad an injury, but suggest this is something to consider for other guests! - the master bedroom bed is extremely noisy every time someone moves even slightly, the creakiness is real! - the mozzies were quite intense... but not sure what can be done about that! - the wall hanging in the lounge/kitchen space kept falling down. Overall we loved our time here and left with happy memories - thank you!!

The property

Named after the native wood pigeon, Kereru is the perfect place to call home for your stay on Waiheke. This charming 2-bedroom holiday home is a stylish and relaxing retreat in Ostend, perfect for a couples weekend away or family vacation. Enjoy ultimate relaxation with fresh linen included in the nightly rate, and all the mod-cons you'll need for your trip - including Wi-Fi, heat pumps and Nespresso machine! Kereru is beautifully decorated, with relaxed beachy vibes and eclectic pops of colour and style throughout. Take delight in the beautiful polished wooden floors, bohemian art, comfy couches and luxurious beds. The spacious and sun-drenched living areas open onto three large wooden decks, waiting for you to BBQ and picnic in the summer sun or beneath the dappled shade of a mature Kowhai tree. Wake up slow in the morning before enjoying your morning coffee in the sunshine. Sink into the outdoor lounger with a good book and enjoy the fruit trees on hand for easy summer snacking. The indulgent slipper bathtub in the bathroom is the perfect place for a soak at the end of the day. Kereru has two bedrooms both with Queen-sized beds, a large bathroom and a modern kitchen to bring out the gourmet chef in you. Centrally located near Ostend village, Kereru is a 15-minute scenic stroll to the supermarket and shops, as well as the famous Waiheke Saturday Market - treat yourself to artisan crafts and delicious homemade goods. You'll love being less than 20-minutes walk or a short drive from the sparkling waters of Palm Beach. Vineyards, adventure activities, and Oneroa are all within a brief driving distance, and the bus stop is right around the corner. Find your happy place away from the hustle and bustle, and wake to the joyful sound of New Zealand’s native birdlife at Kereru!


This house is set across different levels so guests should take care when using the interior steps between the different living areas and bathroom.

The 2 bedrooms are accessed through the bathroom from the main living area, and there is no door between the bathroom and the hallway leading to the bedrooms.

The shallow steps leading from the driveway to the front deck do not have handrails. All guests should take care when walking up the driveway and to prevent falls.

The driveway is uneven, and a 4 wheel drive car may be required in certain weather conditions.

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.
