Omaru Bay Farm is a private, 60 acre estate on fabulous Waiheke Island. With its olive grove, fruit trees, gardens and two beaches at the end of the garden, it is the perfect place for a family reunion or just the ultimate escape.

The property has two main residences which can be rented together or separately; The Farmhouse and The Retreat. The properties are sufficiently removed from one another to guarantee privacy if rented separately.

‘The Retreat’ with its three bedrooms (two bathrooms), sun room, kitchen/ dining room, lounge and outdoor decks is a beautiful home away from home. Its eclectic mix of European and local furniture, complemented by antique botanical prints and yachting memorabilia adds a dash of style to the mix.

Both homes have well-equipped kitchens as well as outdoor barbecues. Meals can be taken around the family sized communal tables or alternatively out on the deck.

If it’s a relaxing, chore free time you are seeking, then three of the best vineyards on the Island are within easy reach: Passage Rock, Man O’ War and the renowned Poderi Crisci await your reservations.

The estate has two beaches, both tidal, fronting onto Omaru Bay, where summer brings warm water with safe swimming and water sports for young and old alike. The fishing in the channel between the property and Rotoroa Island is renowned for its catches of kingfish and snapper.

The views from both homes are simply stunning. There is nothing better than sitting out on the deck with a glass of finest Poderi Crisci wine in hand, some crayfish on the grill, chilling out as the sun goes down on the bay and the yachts lying at anchor in the distance off Rotoroa Island.

Please Note:

  • This property can be rented separately or together with The Farmhouse for the ultimate family and friends get together or function. Giving you a total of 14 guests.
