Perks for the Parents

An entertainer’s haven or a romantic’s escape, this 3-bedroom villa is tucked quietly amongst the established vines on the 1000 acre The Landing estate, overlooking the blue sea of the Bay of Islands. It sleeps 6 +2. The Vineyard Villa is one of 4 luxury private residences located at The Landing and is a spacious open plan design with large open outdoor areas for children of all ages to enjoy. An abundance of birdlife, frolicking hare and rabbits are often seen throughout the day. A covered terrace provides year-round outdoor dining, while a sheltered courtyard to the west offers sunset views and an inviting open-air fire. Guests are welcome to explore the land by weaving through native bush reserves, coastline, wetland areas and paddocks, taking in magnificent views along the way.

Why Kids Love it

The Vineyard Villa is well suited to all age groups including babies, toddlers and children. There are some ungated exterior steps and a few steps inside. 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, or visit the Waitangi Treaty Grounds to learn about the earliest European settlers landing here, meeting the Maori and beginning the story of modern New Zealand.

The area is known for its undeveloped beaches, turquoise water and wild dolphins. The historic town of Russell and the Waitangi treaty grounds are nearby, which guests can explore by transfer on The Landing’s boat, Iti Rangi. Alternatively, deep-sea and big game fishing in the world can be experienced further out, aboard luxury sports fishing vessel Ata Rangi.

Accommodation Details

The Vineyard Villa has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms all on 1 level. On the sea-ward site there is a fully equipped kitchen / diner with a dining table and long breakfast bar. There’s also a sunken living room with a TV and L-shaped couch – the glass doors of these 2 rooms can slide open to make the entire pavilion into an outdoor room. The 3 kingsize bedrooms face the vineyard – 1 kingsize room can also be made into a twin room with 2 single beds. The bathroom overlooks the vineyard and has a shower and free-standing tub. There is also a guest toilet. A further outdoor terrace has a dining table for al fresco dining, and a BBQ area. A manicured lawn gently rolls into the vineyard, leading to walking trails that connect the property to the beach and beyond.

Style Notes

Contemporary luxury. Designed by award-winning Nat Cheshire of Cheshire Architects, the Vineyard Villa is an exclusive sanctuary that blends into its natural setting. The bedroom suites are enfolded by warm timbers and soft plaster, offering an intimate escape. Understated modern furnishings have been carefully selected to match the villa’s calm aesthetic, and work alongside the dark wood and stone materials that run throughout the house. Architecturally designed with a flowing openness to the stunning surroundings, the Vineyard Villa offers magnificent views across The Landing and out to sea. We love the feeling of space within the house and outdoors where the wonderful terraces aid relaxation and allow you to soak in the vista of rolling hills and the sea, making the most of being in this incredible place.
