“Home away from home!”

person found this review helpful

We stayed for a full week, and had a lovely stay! The place is really nicely decorated and is a home away from home : ) Nigel the owner is really helpful and replied promptly to our emails.
The heat pump keeps you warm and the entertainment system provides a great option on those days when the weather isn't great. No sea views, but is very peaceful and within walking distance to the beach. (What a gorgeous beach Onetangi is too!!!) Plus at the end of the road is a pizza shop, service station, and at the end of the hill a couple of places to eat on the seafront! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay on Waiheke Island!!

Cute, tidy and funky house, loved laxin on the couch, walking to nearby Charley Farleys along the beach and so close to vineyard and bus stops! Thanks so much! We would definitely recommend! It was my sister who found this place and organised our first ever trip to Waiheke, it won't be the last, that's for sure!

“A peaceful, arty and interesting place, perfect for two couples.”
Reviewed January 30, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Altogether fabulous! Grasshopper was all we had hoped it would be. A retro bach, with lovely features that added to the ambience. We really had a lovely weekend. Communication with the owner regarding the booking was very friendly and helpful. (Steps to Onetangi beach great for going DOWN..not so good for the unfit like me!)

“Beauty near the beach”
Reviewed December 28, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

This is a lovely property with amazing views, good cooking and laundry facilities and plenty of space for a family of four. It is situated in a quiet, residential area and only 10-15 mins to the beach. Everything was spotlessly clean and there was a great selection of dvds and books for a relaxing evening in. My only request would be for a wifi connection as we were travelling around NZ and it would have been useful to do some research in the evenings and plan alternatives for wet days.

“A perfect retreat!”
Reviewed October 9, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We had an amazing time. It was perfect for my husband and I and our 2 year old daughter. It was so much bigger than I expected & had everything we needed plus more. The location was perfect so close to a beautiful beach & a cool cafe.

“A fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed September 8, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed at Grasshopper for 6 nights and really enjoyed all it had to offer. It is set amongst native bush but a short walk (10 minutes) to the beach and local cafes.
Highly recommended
