Enjoy the slower pace of island life at this completely private Waiheke holiday home nestled in a native bush reserve just 15 minutes’ walk from Palm Beach. With 5 bedrooms and multiple living areas that let guests socialize or spend quiet time, it’s perfect for groups of up to 13—and their pets as well!
Warm and inviting inside and out, the house features a large, sunny upper deck for outdoor entertaining, perched in the treetops 4 meters above the forest floor. A huge covered lower deck with table tennis, a spa pool, dinghy and hammock chair offers fun and relaxation for the whole family. A fully equipped open kitchen fitted with name-brand appliances is a great gathering place while a wood burner in the lounge keeps wintertime stays cosy.
Nature lovers are also well provided for: An acre of virgin native bush, including mature trees and palm groves, hosts many striking epiphytes. Wander between the trees, listening to cicadas and crickets. Thrill at the magnificent sight of native wood pigeons. You may even be greeted by fantails, drawn to the sounds of people walking the tracks.
