The timeless home with extensive terraces, helipad, jetty and boat ramp is perfectly nestled in its own secluded northerly position at the head of Omaru Bay. Luxury finishes and graceful proportions cater seamlessly for intimate, romantic living to the wholly extravagant occasion, with water views from all seven suites.

From the astonishing floating infinity pool you look across your own private bay towards the Coromandel and the eastern islands of the Hauraki Gulf – just ten minutes by boat.
This unrepeatable experience is found so close to the heart of Auckland – 30 minutes drive from Oneroa, 20 minutes from the vehicle ferry, five minutes to the Orapiu passenger ferry – or a mere 10-15 minute helicopter ride from Auckland City.
