A perfect weekend away on Waiheke Island from the business of the city. We chose the treetops bungalows but were upgraded to the mudbrick at no extra charge! What an amazing place, hidden in a valley of New Zealand native bush, with Tui (NZ native bird) singing in the morning. A fantastic place for a romantic getaway, or just to experience some good old kiwi hospitality. The outdoor hot bath and movie are highly recommended.
We will definatly be back and are giving away a weekend here to our parents as a gift. Ten out of ten!!

We had the most amazing couple of nights at Palm Beach Bungalows. We made the most of the experiences offered by Palm Beach, first of all the Bali Garden Experience which involved having a hot bath in a deep French tub under the stars, next to the fireplace! Wow! We also ordered all of the ingredients to make our own individual pizzas to enjoy prior to the French tub. Another night we were treated by an in-room chef, Alberto, who arrived at our luxury bungalow and prepared the most delicious 4 course meal. It was amazing. One of the best features of this place is that you don't have to check in or check out. The room was ready when we arrived, and the freshly baked croissants delivered each morning for breakfast, wow - they are worth going back for! The service was discreet and excellent. Palm Beach is the perfect place for a honeymoon. Thank you Palm Beach. We hope to see you again one day.

Room Tip: Turn the green night light on and enjoy the night sights of the native bush from the luxury bungalow...

Palm Beach Bungalows definately offered the perfect backdrop to the celebration of our wedding anniversary. Nestled amongst bush, with natural ambience, we were at one with nature. Those who appreciate our Earth and like to nurture ones soul will truely benefit from the rejuvenation this tranquil place provides - should you have the eyes, heart and soul to embrace it and take in the beauty. If you love nature and romance in its truest sense, in that love comes from within, then PALM BEACH BUNGALOWS is definately the place to go. It is very unique and we highly recommend booking the Bali Garden. Bathing under the stars, wandering around naked by the open fire toasting marshmallows with the soothing sounds of tranquil music. Tantalising the senses in so many ways. You can't get any closer to nature than this. EARTH MAGIC. xoxoxoxox

What an amazing overall experience! My husband and I spent our wedding day and honeymoon on Waiheke island and were lucky enough to have selected Palm Beach Bungalows as our honeymoon destination. We absolutely LOVED the luxury bungalows earthy "Bali inspired" feel, as we didn't want just any old Hilton-style hotel room to begin our married life together. The gorgeous views in both the day & night were lovely and the hit tub was where we truly let the cares if the world melt away! We were given 5 star treatment with a complimentary night in the Bali Garden & were the 1st guests ever to purchase the homemade pizza dinner package (worth every dollar!). We bought a pizza oven for ourselves because the experience was so wonderful! Palm Beach Bungalows is an example if New Zealand - friendly, helpful people, a diamond in the rough and although very down to earth and relaxed, a place to be treasured in your heart forever. One "so-called" damning review will NEVER change my overall opinion of this place. Palm Beach Bungalows has inspired my husband and I to relocate to Waiheke Island in future :) thankyou for the heavenly experience Phil and Brenda & good luck with your wonderful establishment :)

We stayed at Palm Beach bungalows for our Honeymoon, we were booked for 2 nights in the luxury bungalow, but were to eager to go so got in for a night in mudbrick. Both rooms were lovely, they werent overly flash, but had everything you could ask for, the lovely service from the host and staff were fantastic, including moving all our food and luggage to the luxury suite for us. The bali garden was such a lovely treat, and a perfect way to spend the night with your love, highly reccomend, and am planning my next visit :D Thank you

My wife and I came to Waiheke Island from the States, and could not have enjoyed our stay at the Palm Beach Bungalows more. They were easy to work with in arranging our accommodation, and really helped out in setting up car rental (something that a) I would not have thought to do but is essential and b) would have been difficult for me to do without their guidance).

The bungalow was great - we were in the Palm bungalow - and it was intimate, clean, and spacious. There were two patios/decks and lots of counter/dining space.They provided speakers for music (iPod ready) and TV, which was a nice touch. The mini-fridge was stocked with wine and booze, which came in handy (and was surprisingly priced fairly).

The whole set-up felt like being in a rainforest far away from everything. We woke up to the sound of Tui birds doing their call (something us Americans won't hear again for some time, unfortunately), and enjoyed the fresh croissants the staff brought us. It was our honeymoon, and I'd do it again in a second. Outstanding. Like nothing I've ever experienced, and I travel a lot.

My partner and I stayed in the Mudbrick bungalow for a weekend recently ... We love trying to find unique romantic places to stay around the country and have stayed at some great places over the last few years. Palm Beach Bungalows certainly didn't disappoint ... Set in beautiful surroundings and very private, the mudbrick was a delightful wee cottage, full of charm and perfect for a romantic weekend for two ..! The Bali Garden experience was wonderful and we loved the pizza hamper ... If you want to experience romantic time away with that special someone in your life then this is the place to be ... just leave the tv off ...!! Would certainly recommend :)
