Marino Ridge is drenched in sunlight from dawn till dusk year round, yet sheltered from the prevailing westerly breezes. Unwind in the quietness, enjoy wide and varied land and seascapes, relax in the heated 16m pool or spa. Walk the private bush tracks or take a stroll to the village and beaches — the choice is yours in this sanctuary surrounded by boundless natural beauty.
Marino Ridge was created by Peter and Caroline to satisfy their dream of offering international standards of hospitality and sharing their love of good food and wine in a spectacular setting.
The striking contemporary residence was designed by Geoff Richards, one of New Zealand’s most respected architects and works with the land to create a sense of strength, serenity and soaring height.
This is a tranquil haven which evokes pure relaxation: be cooled by the pool, shady verandahs and fans in the summer or warmed by log fires in winter.
Savour canapés and drinks in the evening and sumptuous, lovingly crafted fresh breakfasts in the morning.
