A day can easily slip by without the need to leave the estate of 3.3 hectares, all with commanding views over Owhanake Bay. A swimming pool and spa pool are available for guest use, and are a wonderful way to watch the spectacular sunsets over the bay. The Manuka Suite has its own spacious, private spa pool. Oneroa Beach and Village are also just a short walk away.
Our philosophy is to maintain the character and beauty of Waiheke Island on our property while producing wine, olive oil, honey, fruit and vegetables - all in a sustainable way.
The estate includes luxury accommodation, a boutique vineyard, an olive grove, a small citrus and stone fruit orchard, berry gardens, vegetable gardens, flower gardens and a tropical food forest. We use fresh organic produce from our gardens in the guest rooms and for guest breakfasts. We also use flowers from the garden and roses from the vineyard in our guest rooms.
We delight in giving guests private tours of our vineyard. The vineyard comprises mostly Syrah vines, along with 1000 Pinot Gris and Flora vines. Our focus is on growing the best possible grapes to produce high quality wines unique to this special location.
It is, of course, just a short stroll to the beach below the estate and there are some beautiful short coastal walks which start at Owhanake Bay.
Most of the time the only two sounds here are the bird songs and waves on the beach.
