Holiday Rental House
Stay at Drop Anchor and experience this fabulous original Kiwi styled Waiheke Cottage from yester - year. Drop Anchor is a historic cottage sitting beachside (only 40 paces away) at Enclosure Bay, which is only a few kilometers from Oneroa Village, Oneroa Beach, and Palm Beach, therefore perfectly positioned. This 4 bedroom character filled holiday cottage, has gone through a complete makeover where the inside was gutted and replaced with modern facilities and furnishings, but we have definitely kept the old world Retro style giving it a delightful charm and feel to it. Sitting on the deck gives one the feeling they may be on a cruise liner as the water is at eye height and so close. You get to enjoy all day sun from this gem.

Drop Anchor is a historic cottage sitting beachside (only 40 paces away) at Enclosure Bay, which is only a few kilometers from Oneroa Village, Oneroa Beach, and Palm Beach, therefore perfectly positioned. This 4 bedroom character filled holiday cottage, has gone through a complete makeover where the inside was gutted and replaced with modern facilities and furnishings, but we have definitely kept the old world Retro style giving it a delightful charm and feel to it. Sitting on the deck gives one the feeling they may be on a cruise liner as the water is at eye height and so close. You get to enjoy all day sun from this gem. This is a classic property, which perfectly represents the type of Bach the grandparents used to have, many of you may remember such a place in your youth, where as kids, we loved the situation of being able to spend all day on the beach and run home without having to worry about sand on our feet or being told off by the oldies for making a mess. Drop Anchor is one of the very few properties remaining in that original state, a real classic gem which has now gone through a complete upgrade and makeover, making it super cool and comfortable. The main house has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The bed configuration has the Master bedroom with a California (split-able) King bed in a large room which opens onto the wrap around covered deck, with the view across the Bay. The second bedroom has a split king bed. and the third bedroom has a King single bed. The sleep-out which is at the back door has a queen bed and a single bed along with a full bathroom. The kitchen is completely remodeled with gas oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave and fridge freezer, along with being well equipped with most everything you may need to whip up the great meal. We have kept the cupboards as they were, although repainted, they are still the same colour. The living /dining room are open plan, with a large hand made table and benches, and the lounge has all new furniture. A 40” TV is on the wall equipped with Sky channels, along with a stereo which has a USB connection for smartphones, and of course free Wifi. Drop Anchor is truly delightful, which will suit guests looking for that special and memorable holiday experience, they just don’t make houses like this anymore. The wrap around deck has BBQ and outdoor furniture. A big flat lawn runs off the front, and there is a further lawn to the rear, this has a purpose-built area for a tent. The property can accommodate 8 There are also board games and books galore, along with free use of the kayaks under the house.More

Great place to visit with family or friends. Drop Anchor has everything you need and is located in quaint Enclosure Bay. Great swimming at high tide (endorsed by the few locals who know about it) It is only 5 mins of the beaten track from...More
