Heartsong Retreat
Reviewed 30 March 2017

We spent two nights of our honeymoon here and it was absolutely wonderful. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived. We were able to use the hot tub, hang around the boathouse, enjoy breakfast on our little deck and Trish was wonderful enough to arrange to find someone to come and give us massages at the house. The views alone and the feeling that you are away from the craziness of the city was enough that we dream of going back. It's intimate, quiet and beautiful. Absolutely perfect!

The host is most friendly lady who makes you feel at home the moment you step out of the ferry! The cottage is in a beautiful setting with lavender and roses welcoming you. The inside is surprisingly modern and filled with character, an extremely cosy and picturesque place that anyone will fall in love with instantly.
Trisha brings a big breakfast every morning with friendliest smile ever. We enjoyed the outdoor spa in most tranquil setting in midst of tall trees and sea views.
Would highly recommend this luxurious experience to anyone looking for a stay in Waiheke!
Thank you Trisha for being an amazing host and lending the ginger for chai :)

Great views in a secluded and beautiful part of Waiheke.

This was my second time staying here. First was in the cottage & this time in the main house. Great service as usual! A really happy & special vibe to this place.

Highly recommended!

Enjoyed every moment. We had the cottage it was so clean. Lovely lavender smell surrounds the place. The croissants were so delicious. Most relaxed and peaceful holiday. Morning breakfast was a yummy big spread of choice.

A truly peaceful, private location. The cottage is a well appointed cosy spot, a perfect place to propose (as I did!).
The host (Trisha) is very kind and welcoming, she provided a Vegan breakfast on request.
All things considered (location, accommodation, privacy), one of the nicest places we have stayed.
