Situated in a peaceful location in the Bay of Islands, Vineyard Villa is a three bedroom modern retreat with stunning wetland valley views, and glimpses over Wairoa Bay as part of 100-acre The Landing property.
This quietly sumptuous haven of natural textures nestles among the vines, rich in native birdlife to the sea beyond.
Weighty stone walls and layered timber textures imbue the Vineyard Villa with a sense of unmovable calm and enclosure, against the ever-changing colours of the vine-clad slopes surrounding it.
The generous master suite and two equal-status king bedrooms luxuriously accommodate up to six guests, and look out over perfectly framed views of rolling pasture, vines and lush wetlands where kiwi come to feed in the evenings.
The villa sits at the center of a network of walking trails that weave through native bush reserves, wetlands, paddocks and along the coastlines. At the end of the day, a sheltered westward-facing courtyard is the ideal place to enjoy the sunset with a glass of The Landing Wine.
In the open-plan living area, morning sun soaks the stone floors, and floor-to-ceiling glass walls roll back on two sides to transform the space into an airy outdoor room. A well-equipped entertainer’s kitchen looks out across the view, as well as back onto an intimate courtyard garden of flowers and herbs.
Stays at The Landing include in the rate: a personal chef for breakfast, dinner and a prepared lunch or picnic, wine tasting of The Landing wines (grown and made on site), a vineyard tour, kiwi-spotting tour, a site tour to visit the historically significant sites, a sightseeing boat tour (subject to availability) and daily servicing. There are also shared facilities on the property that include tennis and basketball courts, a gym, a steam room, mountain bikes, snorkelling gear, fishing equipment, kayaks and paddleboards and walking trails.
