A very lovely place to stay with the Nature. Staff are helpful and efficient. The only trouble: some residents were not considerate at all. Late noise disturbed sleep despite it violated house rule. Should get tough on those hooligans.


AMAZING. Luke was extremely helpful and welcoming. He made our trip. The location is unbelievable. The next time I come to Waiheke (from NYC) I'll be sure to stay here


Very friendly and helpful stuff, homely atmosphere, good equiped kitchen but no lockers in the rooms and it was not quiet clean... But a good location for short trips, not really for longer stays.


I loved it. The kitchen cleaning facilities were a wee bit manky but that was overshadowed by everything else being really lovely. It's a family atmosphere with comfortable beds and beautiful views from the lounge. I totally recommend it and will go back there!

Had a great stay at Kina this past weekend (19th July), facilities were great and clean. Really comfy and relaxing lounge area with sky TV. Warmly welcomed by the owners who couldn't be more helpful, gave us ideas on local attractions and checked we were happy throughout our stay. Overall very happy.

Decent place. Friendly and accomodating staff, clean kitchen. Beds and rooms are a little cramped, but overall no real complaints! It seemed to be mostly for people who plan on staying in the area and working for a while rather than travelers passing through.
