Fodor's Review

Sitting by the edge of the Waimea Estuary this estate in the true sense of the word encompasses both villas and suites and gets you right down to the water. At high tide, the lawn outside the villas, decorated with original works by well-known local artists, is lapped by the sea and at low tide you can walk onto the sand flats. Home baking, complimentary drinks, and homemade chocolates are all part of the pampering here. The delightful garden spreads over 2 acres, sloping down to the sea, draped with flowering wisteria and shaded by tall trees. Should you be feeling competitive, you can play a game of pétanque (bocce) or tennis, then relax in the heated pool. They also have their own small vineyard and orchard next door.
