Getting here & around

Upon your arrival to Waiheke we are happy to meet you from the ferry terminal (and also provide a ride back on departure).

Our local area of Surfdale is a short 5 minute walk away. Surfdale has two restaurants, an excellent French cafe, a general store and a greengrocer. Goldie and Kennedy Point Vineyards as well as Hooks Bay and Surfdale Beach are also a 5 minutes on foot.

Transport is simple as Villa du Soleil is situated on the main bus route, the bus stop is located 50 meters from the main house. All of the beaches, wineries, shops, fishing spots, nature walks, and the cinema are reachable by these means. The main town of Oneroa is a mere five minute bus journey from Villa du Soleil.

If you have a car, free off-street parking is available. Distances to the main beaches by car are:

  • Oneroa Village – 5 minutes
  • Palm Beach – 7 minutes
  • Onetangi Beach – 10 minutes

We are happy to help organise car and bicycle rentals, restaurant and winery bookings and fishing trips or other activities during your stay. We are on-hand to assist with any other requirements you may have, so if you need something, please just ask.
