Incredible Unique Hotel

Pros: Service, views, unique history, decor, natural setting, quiet, food.
Location: Outdoor activities like hiking or mountain biking, close to Auckland, we did Bethells Beach & snorkled at Goat Island while we were there.
We absolutely loved our stay at Waitakere Estate! The scenery is amazing... you could not dream up a better view. The staff was all so wonderful, made sure we had everything we need, were wonderful to chat with, and made us feel very welcomed. We loved the restaurant as well. I'm a vegan and my husband is a picky eater, so we were a little worried about having food options, but there are options for all kinds of diets/tastes. This really was one of the most memorable places I have stayed anywhere and I would highly suggest booking at least a night here and building your trip around your stay at Waitakere Estate.
