Welcome to Ember Rock. Truly unique, unforgettable, studio accommodation situated on gorgeous Waiheke Island. This is the ultimate getaway experience, perfect for group bookings, couples, wedding parties or work trips. Minutes away from all the best vineyards, local hotspots and beaches. From the moment you arrive, you’ll discover what makes Ember Rock a place where stories are made. Surrounded by life-sized bronze sculptures, nature, and an incredible communal fire pit, this is everyone’s inner child’s dream - it’s truly magical. The property transports you into holiday mode instantly, courtesy of the amount of detail that’s gone into creating this oasis. The owners have lovingly placed every single bronze sculpture, rock and tree to bring Ember Rock to life.
There are five studio’s that sit around a koru shaped landscape, surrounded by the incredible Instagram-worthy sculptures that lead to a communal fire pit, kitchen, shared BBQ and 12 person wave-mode spa. Each studio has a queen sized bedroom, bathroom, TV, mini fridge and air-conditioning. Enjoy a wine on your own deck and lawn, or if you're feeling social, take advantage of our shared amenities close by.
The name ‘Ember Rock’ comes from the idea of sitting around a fire together telling stories and enjoying each other's company. Long after the embers fade, the friendships will grow stronger, garnished in the afterglow of the fond memories created in such a special place. Ember Rock really comes alive at night, so get your cameras ready! Please note that this place is for adults only. It is not child friendly.
Ember Rock offers both private and communal living spaces in a rural landscape, surrounded by a variety of farm animals. There is parking available on site for each studio, but if you prefer to come by bicycle, it’s an easy ride from either Matiatia wharf - 4.2 km or from Kennedy point - 2.9 km. As you disembark the ferry at Matiatia, it’s hard to miss the public transport. Ask the bus driver or taxi to drop you at the iconic large bronze elephant on Junction and they’ll know exactly where you mean. There’s a bus stop directly outside the front entrance to Ember Rock, so it’s easy to get around without any hassle.
We look forward to having you stay with us at Ember Rock.
