Other things to note
I have a little Toyota Windy, hatchback car which lives at the property. It is an automatic, easy to drive and runs on the smell of an oily rag :) Great for getting out and really seeing Waiheke Island!
If you are over 25, have a current; New Zealand, Australian or British drivers license, you can hire it for the day/night of your stay for just $35.00 per day (half the lowest rate I have seen out here), and topping it back up with gas before you leave it back in the carpark after your stay. You do need to pay a deposit of $600, ((SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) IS THE BEST OPTION FOR PAYING THIS, IT IS HELD BY (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) AND ON REFUND, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) FEES ARE ALSO REFUNDED :) as this is our insurance excess for any accidents, (you get this back after your stay)... if you are happy with this, and the car is not booked at the time of your stay, and you are welcome to use it during your stay or part thereof :)
UNFORTUNATELY IF YOU DON'T DRIVE ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE ROAD AT HOME, THE EXCESS WE ARE CHARGED ON OUR INSURANCE IS INCREASED TO $1000.00, SO THIS IS THE BOND THEN REQUIRED, SORRY.
Hi, I'm Suzi, I'm a Kiwi, born and bred, and I live between New Zealand's beautiful city of Auckland, the gorgeous beaches of Waiheke Island and the mountains of the Central Plateau, in Ohakune, I am very lucky to have a property in each of my favorite destinations and I share these properties, and my local knowledge with my Airbnb guests! :)
I ski, snowboard, hike, mountain bike, kayak and ride horses whenever I get the chance.
