The Villino (or little villa) at Cypress Ridge Estate is set on a working vineyard and olive grove situated on the slopes of “vineyard valley” with spectacular 180-degree northern sea views over Onetangi Bay and on towards Great Barrier, the Coromandel and outer gulf islands.
The Mediterranean style villa is nestled amongst brightly coloured terraced gardens, fruit and olive trees with lovely outdoor areas including a 10 x 4 metre swimming pool, spa pool, outdoor shower and BBQ area where guests can relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and privacy of the estate.
The Villino has one bedroom, a full bath with rain shower & bathtub and a small open plan kitchen/living area with wood burning stove. Large bi-fold doors open the house to the terraces and breathtaking sea views creating a beautiful open space.
Guests are welcome to explore the estate… have a walk through the olive grove and vineyard, enjoy the harvest from the large kitchen garden, find fresh eggs in the hen house, tramp through an acre of native bush with several 1000 year old Puriri trees or picnic in the shade of huge Pohutukawas overlooking the neighboring vineyards.
The property shares boundaries with several award winning vineyards and restaurants including Miro/Casita Miro, Stonyridge, Te Motu and Obsidian… making spectacular wine and food a short stroll away. A 10-minute walk down the hill leads to picturesque Onetangi beach with it’s 2.5 kilometers of white sand and a further 10-minutes down the beach leads to the local pub.
Come and experience the peace and quality of a country lifestyle combined with a beach holiday… all with quality wining and dining on your doorstep.

This has been one of the most incredible experiences a guest can wish for! The host was extremely accomodating with any requests we made and made sure our stay was top notch. The views were absolutely breathtaking and the pool area was like a 5 star resort, photos don't do this villa enough justice. Our stay was was worth every penny and I would recommend this to anybody looking for a special getaway.Mark - Oct 2023
This place is perfect for a little getaway for two. It’s peaceful, and has everything you may need. Walking distance from the bus so easy to get into town. We loved it.Victoria - Nov 2023
We LOVED staying here! Beautiful views in the most charming villa - seeing it in person is even better than the photos. Many thanks to Kim for being a great hostess! Can’t wait to come back!Lauren - Nov 2023
We loved our stay at The Vilino! The Vilino is extremely charming and the views are spectacular. It was such a great place to stay that the only downside was fighting the urge to hangout there by the pool all day. The ease of having amazing wineries right next door to visit can’t be beatenChristopher - Nov 2023
