The Owners Retreat
Situated at the beautiful, pristine Eastern end of Waiheke Island, on a private beach called Circular Bay sits a lovingly-restored family cottage. The Owner’s Retreat is located 30 minutes drive from Matiatia ferry and Mudbrick Restaurant, 25 minutes drive from Kennedy Point Vehicular Ferry.
The Owner’s Retreat at Circular Bay is a world away from your everyday life, or even your everyday holiday. The property is a special retreat for those who enjoy absolute privacy, relaxation and great times.
The Seaside Cottage
When choosing somewhere to stay, wouldn’t it be lovely to find somewhere … somewhere that has panoramic sea views, that’s atmospheric, comfortable, light, …close to a beautiful beach, close to the village, and preferably with a spa pool. It’s what most of us look for in our search for the perfect spot for our getaway to Waiheke Island. This search can take hours on the internet, but you have just found one that ticks all of the above boxes.
The Beach House
Situated between two beaches, the Beach House is a 2 minute drive to Mudbrick and is one of the most stunning spots on Waiheke.
It is a truly breath-taking spot where the views hit you in a continuous wave. It sits between two beaches, is rural, peaceful and private, yet only 5 minutes from the ferry and the main bustling village of Oneroa.
At the Beach House you feel like you are living outside, where the environment becomes part of the inside. When you wake up in the morning it’s like you’ve been sleeping in an outdoor room. Large sliding doors peel back removing all walls if desired. Renowned architects Fearon Hay designed this house and they truly are masters of the outdoor room.
Frenchmans Hill Estate is located on Waiheke Island, a luxurious 35-minute ferry cruise from downtown Auckland, New Zealand. Waiheke Island is famous for its beautiful white-sand beaches, and is renowned for producing great red wines and olive oil due to its low summer rainfall and high temperatures.
