What You’ll Love…

The Property – Raw and secluded beauty unfolding alongside the Bay of Islands

Sprawled on the southwestern tip of the Purerua Peninsula in New Zealand’s idyllic Bay of Islands is The Landing; four unique residences dotted amongst 1,000 acres of natural splendour including six private beaches, an award-winning vineyard and lush wetlands. From garden-to-plate dining crafted from fish, crayfish and scallops caught by your own hand to wine-tasting from the onsite vineyard, you are invited to discover the spoils of the land and sea whilst staying in five-star privacy and luxury.

The Residences – Luxury living curated by renowned New Zealand architect Pip Cheshire

The Boathouse (for four people): Located on the water’s edge at Wairoa Bay, this gorgeous property, inspired by a colonial woolshed that used to stand on the property, boasts views across the 144 emerald-green islands of the bay. Offering plenty of space for a group of four (plus one additional child on a rollaway bed), the two-bedroom residence features a covered courtyard and an outdoor fireplace area, perfect for chilled-out evenings under twinkling skies.

Vineyard Villa (for six people): Tucked amongst the vines, this beautiful residence grants views over the wetland valley and out to Wairoa Bay. Open-yet-intimate living spaces and three bedrooms offer ample room for six people (plus one child sleeping on a rollaway bed), complete with a covered terrace with open-air fire.

Gabriel Residence (for eight people): Upgrade to the four-bedroom Gabriel Residence to soak up magnificent views from every angle of sea, islands, bush, farmland and wetlands. Four plush en suite bedrooms sleep eight people, plus one additional child can stay on a rollaway bed. The extensive living space and fully-equipped kitchen with scullery lends itself to entertaining, with a pool table, den, library and cosy lounge area to suit all ages.

The Inclusions – Garden-to-plate private dining, daily wine and a boat cruise on the Bay of Islands

Start relaxed mornings with breakfast at your leisure, which you can create in the comfort of your residence with your included daily breakfast provisions including free-range eggs and continental favourites. Gather together for the most unforgettable of evenings as a chef arrives at your residence to cook you a private dinner with fresh ingredients, meats and seafood – perfect for a special occasion if you’re staying to celebrate a big birthday or anniversary.

Indulge in local flavours with a complimentary cheese platter to share; the perfect accompaniment to your daily bottle of The Landing wine, which comes as part of the property’s complimentary inclusions package along with a sightseeing trip aboard the property’s Iti Rangi boat, a wine-tasting experience, a vineyard tour and a kiwi-spotting tour with a guided evening walk.

See & Do – Wine-tasting, bird-watching, boating, biking or simply unwinding

With nature’s bounty on your doorstep, you’ll be absolutely spoilt for choice with beautiful bush walks and biking trails, where you can spot winding vines, incredible wildlife and native birds. This historically-significant land, home to the first European settlers, is also home to a number of prominent sites to explore, including the 1830 missions house, an old Maori village and old settler graves. Gather ingredients to cook up in your residence – whether that’s from the local honey and olive farms, artisanal bakery, boutique chocolatier or Sunday farmer’s market – treat yourself to a massage, charter a boat, go kayaking in the Bay of Islands, unwind with yoga… the choice is yours in this most spectacular of destinations.

Perfect for families, groups or special occasions

Enjoy the holiday of a lifetime with a group escape to The Landing, perfect for celebrating a special family occasion such as a big birthday or an anniversary in the midst of breathtaking natural splendour.
