Future guests should know there are cameras installed onsite before they book this home. Suz and Ted should disclose where the cameras are so there are no surprises. Other than that, this is a beautiful home in a lovely setting with incredible . Would be very enjoyable f you don't mind being watched!

Response from Suz And Ted:
It’s unfortunate and disappointing to us that Kathryn has chosen to be negative here. Her comments in our visitors book when she departed and the comments to us when they arrived were incredibly positive. When you hand your largest asset, filled with your treasures, over to complete strangers for two days there is a large element of risk involved. We have terms and conditions for a reason and it is frustrating when people ignore these as we feel we have a right to set the rules in our house. You never know who you are truly letting into your house and it is reasonable to take precautions. In response the comments here, we do let people know there are cameras onsite, both in the terms and conditions available on Airbnb, and in the information we provide when you arrive. Cameras are installed outside as part of protection for our home. The cameras are in plain site, and there are notices on the doors near where the cameras are installed. We enjoyed meeting Kathryn and her friends and had a chat when they arrived, to show them around and make sure they knew how everything worked and where to find things. One of things we discussed was that sometimes people try to sneak others in, and we have a firm limit of eight people. As it turned out we were staying at the cabin at the top of the property and saw nine people leave the property later that day. This worried us so later we checked the security cameras and again saw nine people arriving back at the house. We sent a message to Kathryn at that point letting her know we were aware of the extra person and asking when they would be leaving. Our message was polite and understanding, despite this being a clear breach of our terms and conditions. We didn’t hear back from Kathryn until later the next day and we accepted her explanation that her extra person was unexpected and didn’t stay the night. If Kathryn had communicated about her extra person it would have been fine.

Suz was fantastic to communicate with, quick responses and always answered my questions. The property is very comfortable with everything you could want for a great weekend (or longer) away. The views from the deck are just incredible, especially watching the sun set.

We truly enjoyed the Gorgeous Inn on Waiheke - fabulous location nestled amongst the vineyards and beautiful views all around - a very relaxing place to start from in the morning when exploring Waiheke and when returning from a busy day out.

Ted (also known as Steve) and I have lived on Waiheke since 2011 and have been renting our cabin out to visitors since 2012. We love having the opportunity to meet new people and provide the best experience for them in our wonderful slice of the world.
We also love wine, cheese, sunshine and thankfully Waiheke has lots of these things. We love to travel so we have an understanding of the little things that can make an experience special or life a little bit easier for people new to a place.
We look forward to meeting you.
