Our Story

Mark & Jenny

Mark and Jenny Menefy have been married nearly 30 years and used to be beekeepers, as well as farmers of sheep and beef. As current kiwi fruit orchardists, Mark and Jenny seek a more relaxed pace of life while managing Aqua Vista for guests to enjoy all the sights and sounds of the beautiful Airbnb Coromandel Peninsula New Zealand. The ocean is a home away from home for this family, with Mark and Jenny’s son being committed to big-game fishing, so being close to the sea and enjoying all it has to offer is of paramount importance when it comes to where they choose to spend their time. Jenny, being a happy homebody, spends her days gardening and takes pride in developing gorgeous gardens and keeping heritage chickens. With a flair for interior design, Jenny has gone to lengths to create a relaxing paradise in her own home and in the Aqua Vista apartments. It’s somewhere she herself would enjoy a fabulous view with a drink and book in hand, surrounded by her children and grandchildren.

Our Story with Aqua Vista

Aqua Vista was purchased in May 2020 amid the Covid lockdown, to develop 2 independent, ground floor apartments, specifically for holiday lets with good views. Jenny and Mark saw it as their potential retirement vocation. Knowing their own preferences, Mark and Jenny saw in Aqua Vista, a hidden pearl with great potential for fabulous holidays! They felt it was important to be able to take in the breathtaking view, in its various climatic moods, from the comfort of your own apartment – so Aqua Vista was the perfect spot! Aqua Vista is also a family home on the first floor, so while it is private, neighbours are just a door knock away! 

Aqua Vista is located on top of a hill looking down on Mercury Bay and Whitianga township. Night lights are spectacular. It is a large, self-contained, beautifully comfortable two-storey house, situated in what will be a beautiful tropical garden in a quiet residential area. Jenny’s passion project is the garden, and it is still under development. The house has a lovely, calming and relaxing air about it, making it very hard to leave. If you look carefully, you’ll even be able to see a huge kiwi carved into the side of a hill from the area! Kiwiana at its finest!

Mark and Jenny used to host BnB accommodation guests on their kiwi fruit orchard and would get many international guests, but not so many kiwis as you couldn’t see the beach from there. With the absence of international travellers, it all changed, and the demand was no longer there. Aqua Vista provided the all popular sea views that Kiwis value, so Mark and Jenny are eager to open their doors to Kiwi travellers and anyone else looking for a little spot of heaven with views to write home about!

Whitianga

Airbnb Whitianga is just a lovely town, plenty to do, lots of touristy stuff, beautiful scenery and a shopping centre full to the brim with character! The township boasts lots of restaurants, cafes, retail shops and a choice of different beaches in close proximity. It’s got a lot happening, so it caters for everyone. 

Airbnb Whitianga is also so great for holidaying because it has safe access to the open sea for fishing. The climate is mainly warm, winters short and reasonably mild, and the summers long and hot.

Frequently Asked Questions

Whitianga is just a lovely town in the Coromandel, with plenty to do, lots of touristy stuff, beautiful scenery and a shopping centre full to the brim with historical character! The township boasts many restaurants, cafes, retail shops and a choice of safe, white sandy beaches nearby that are ideal for swimming and water sports.

It’s got a lot happening, so it caters for everyone without being overcrowded like some of the other areas in the Coromandel Peninsula can get in peak time. You can take a ferry trip out to the hot water beach without having to get caught in the crowded local area, coming home to a lovely little holiday spot all of your own in Whitianga.

Whitianga is also so great for holidays because it has safe access to the open sea for fishing, which is always in abundance! With no dangerous bars to cross, boaties can enjoy easy sailing out to their favourite fishing spot or explore the many gorgeous bays. The climate is mainly warm, winters short and reasonably mild, and summers long and hot.

It depends on what you are looking for from your holiday! Airbnbs like Aqua Vista are very different from a hotel or motel. In terms of value, you get more for your money from Airbnb accommodation. This includes a spacious, private entire apartment instead of a cramped hotel room and the comings and goings of many travellers in the communal areas. Airbnbs tend to be much cleaner than the local motels, and Aqua Vista is meticulously cleaned after every stay, as per their testimonials. INcluded in the Airbnb price is an onsite host, available to answer any queries or help. Each Aqua Vista apartment Airbnb is stocked with pamphlets on activities in the local Whitianga area and beyond, and your hosts do everything they can to make sure you have everything you need for a comfortable and memorable stay.

Aqua Vista is the home away from home you’ll want to return to, again and again. Jenny is a meticulous and warm host, ensuring that you have absolutely everything you need to make great memories in Whitianga and the wider Coromandel Peninsula area. There are not many places of accommodation in the area set in such tranquil and private settings, so Aqua Vista is a pearl of a find, offering homeliness and peace – leaving you to relax and unwind without being disturbed by any hotel neighbours. Being self-contained, your apartment is truly yours for your stay! Your hosts love this house, and take excellent care of it for your use and will send you out into the area with insider information on where to find the real gems of the Coromandel you won’t want to share with anyone else! With choices of two different apartments, you can select the Aqua Vista apartment that best suits you instead of a Coromandel Peninsula one-size-fits-all motel!
