Frenchmans Hill Estate is situated on sheltered northern slopes above the sparkling tidal waters of the Putiki Estuary at the western head of the Onetangi Valley.

The central location is close to the Waiheke Golf Club, Onetangi sports park and tennis courts, the local supermarket and shops as well as most of Waiheke’s stunning beaches and native reserves.

The estuary immediately below the property is teaming with all sorts of wonderful native bird and fish life and offers visitors a completely relaxing focal point as well as being somewhere to flit away a couple of hours meandering around this stunning piece of Waiheke coastline or simply sitting amongst the wetland wildlife sipping a sumptuous artisan wine.

The property comprises 12 acres of north facing sloped vineyard, olive groves and wetlands. Owners Luc and Anna Desbonnets have gained a reputation over recent years for their exquisite range of exclusive Frenchmans Hill Estate wines as well as their delicious Frenchmans Hill Estate olive oil. Interior designer Anna has created a collection of handcrafted gifts, cards and selected homeware which are available for purchase and also feature on the walls of the Guest House.
