Perks for the Parents

Located immediately above the tranquil waters of Wairoa Bay, this contemporary 4-bedroom house has magnificent views in all directions, extensive outdoor living space and an entertainer’s kitchen. It sleeps 8 + 2. The Gabriel Residence is one of 4 luxury private residences located at The Landing in the Bay of Islands. It’s well suited to extended families and friends. As well as the large main living area, which extends onto the large covered deck, there are 3 other self-contained indoor living areas including an entertainment room with pool table, a large den/library space and an intimate downstairs lounge area. The downstairs lounge area can be closed off and used as an additional nursery room for babies. The best perk? Parents can enjoy tasting wines made from grapes grown at The Landing’s own vineyard.

Why Kids Love it

The Gabriel Residence is well suited to all age groups including babies, toddlers and children. However, please note that there are ungated internal stairs. For babies, a crib, a pack n’ play, buggy, car seats and high chairs are available on request. Meanwhile, older children who like to be outside will love the stand-up paddleboards, 2-person kayak, single kayak, mountain bikes, tennis court and basketball court. The Bay of Islands is a popular summertime destination for Kiwi families with plenty to do to keep children happy. Check out Waitangi bike park, Kawiti Caves where you can see thousands of luminous glow worms and rainforest, or visit the Waitangi Treaty Grounds to learn more about the first meeting between the British and the Maoris that changed history.

Style Notes

Contemporary luxury. Designed by leading New Zealand architect Pip Cheshire, the Gabriel Residence is a modern home that nestles into the slope of the land. The house is constructed in unfinished hardwood timber and raw concrete, allowing it to soften into the coastal landscape. Furnished with an understated mix of modern pieces, New Zealand antiques and Pacific art, the interior is full of the natural tones and textures of wood, rich textiles, stone and metal. We love the high, open, airy rooms that make the most of the views out and the luxurious bedrooms.
