Nestled on the hillside in the grounds of the world-famous Mudbrick Vineyard and Restaurant are two charming little cottages designed especially to capture the essence of an island escape away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Olive cottage, so named as it is surrounded by olive trees, is full of character and old world charm with rustic touches of history and romance. Merlot Cottage has views over the vines and the water out to Rangitoto Island. Both are secluded and private, delightfully rural yet just 2 minutes’ drive to Waiheke’s main village, Oneroa.
Bonny, the accommodation manager, is a local Waihekean and besides arriving with flowers and making ready for your arrival, she is also a mine of local information. Dinner is available a short stroll away in the Mudbrick Dining room where you can eat, drink, relax, chat and enjoy loved ones. At the end of the evening, wander down a winding pathway and hop into your own private spa pool—you’ll be spending the night at a location that rivals the best, worldwide.
Breakfast is included in the relaxed, casual Archive Bar or in upmarket, refined Mudbrick Dining Room. This is an idyllic fantasy escape, perfect for a special birthday or a romantic getaway.
