PLUM TREE COTTAGE, WAIHEKE ISLAND NEW ZEALAND
Indulge yourself in the quiet comfort of a beautifully restored and spacious 1920s one bedroom Kauri Cottage, set amid fruit trees and a pleasant garden. Delight in the views over Oneroa Bay gazing at the many yachts that moor for the night to enjoy the ideal anchorage of a protected bay. Listen to the native birds singing in the Pohutukawa trees and watch the wood pigeons dart and frolic.
An easy 5 minute stroll to the beautiful beach at Oneroa or the lively cafes and restaurants of the village, make this an ideal location. (Oneroa Village is the main retail centre on the Island; the No2 Bus arrives almost outside the door & it’s only a 15 minute downhill walk to the passenger ferry Terminal at Matiatia!)
Charming and relaxing describe this gorgeous getaway; a perfect break from the hustle and bustle of a busy and stressful life.
"In a word 'Delightful'...
Following the Christchurch Earthquake in February 2011 we had a wonderful week at this peaceful Waiheke Kiwi Bach (Holiday Home).
Fabulously equipped and in a brilliant location in Oneroa - we couldn't have asked for more. Blissful sleep (oh, how we needed that) in a wonderfully comfortable bed ...and the lovely crisp sheets (courtesy of Mother Nature) took me back to my trouble free childhood.
But no lack of creature comforts here and within strolling distance to the most wonderful restaurants - we wanted for nothing but the opportunity to return."

Plum tree cottage was certainly a pleasure to stay in. They have thought of every little thing and there are lots of lovely little extras to make you feel like you are in a four star hotel. Down to the robes and slippers, soaps, towels and tissues etc. So many places don't even have salt and pepper but definitely nothing has been forgotten here. Such a pretty little cottage with a great view. Absolute pleasure. Would definitely recommend.
What a lovely cottage. So sunny and warm - with lots of wonderful homely touches.
A great balance between attractive interior decoraton and a relaxed feel. A wonderfully stocked kitchen - so nice to have decent glasses, good sized coffee mugs and even champagne flutes! The location is fantastic - close to a bus stop and a short walk to the beach and village. We will definitely be back for another stay in the near future. A Kristen, 2012
We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Plum Tree Cottage recently and would highly recommend this cottage for anyone looking for a unique place to stay on Waiheke that is within walking distance to the ferry terminal and Oneroa village.
The cottage is in a great location (only 5 min walk to Oneroa village), lovely hosts, clean and tidy, and extras like the magazines, BBQ and spa pool with a view made our stay even more enjoyable.
Thanks Preston and Catherine.

The cottage was everything the reviews said & more! We loved the little touches; plunger coffee, milk in the fridge, wine to purchase, lovely towels and linen and so on. The location is perfect - just a few minutes walk to Oneroa & the bus.
Lovely, old fashioned bach, very nice interior in a nice and quiet location with great views. Would stay again.
Cute cottage with everything we needed and more. Very close to shops, bus stop right outside cottage and Preston was lovely. Will definitely be staying here again next time we're at Waiheke.
Preston was amazing, he helped me plan my holdiay a long time in advance and kept in touch as the date of arrival neared.
Quiet, beautiful, romantic are the first words that pop into my head when thinking of Plum Tree- it was so close to the beach and village I didn't use a taxi once! From the moment I walked in I knew I'd want to stay again. It was absolutely perfect!
We found it to be a simple, quiet, tastefully restored cottage with all the things we needed for comfort and rest. The host, Preston Camp was most friendly, helpful and available for our needs. We cooked in 2 nights, ate out 2 nights. Wonderful groceries just a short walk away. As my wife said when we stepped into the cottage: "the only problem I see is that we aren't going to want to leave!" We aim to be back.
