Introducing Mawhiti, a luxurious new residence on Waiheke Island with a magnificent waterfront setting. 

Mawhiti translates to ‘escape’; the very essence of what this home was designed to invoke: peace, tranquillity, and serenity.  

Mawhiti enjoys all day sun, magnificent views sloping down to a private beach with pristine, crystal clear water. Expect extraordinary sunsets looking out to Rangitoto and the twinkling lights of the city in the far distance. A retreat for the senses all just a few minutes away from the fabulous restaurants and amenities of Oneroa and the nearby ferry.

Designed by award-winning firm Stevens Lawson Architects, the home features a series of living pavilions with soaring vaulted ceilings. The design was an intentional complement to the “Gateway Pavilion” - an architectural masterpiece commissioned for the 2017 Sculpture on the Gulf event which the owners acquired for the property in 2017. The Gateway was originally designed as the New Zealand submission for the Venice Architectural Biennale in 2012. 

The residence features a large living pavilion with an open fireplace,  a chef’s kitchen and extended scullery with the latest appliances. The architects have cleverly designed multiple living and entertaining spaces to relax inside and out, with a large entertainment deck featuring a state of the art barbeque.

Four large, equal-sized bedrooms all have direct outdoor access with infinity sea views. All bedrooms feature superking beds, all with luxurious ensuite bathrooms with private courtyards.  

New Zealand art features prominently in the house, including sculptures by award-winning Waiheke artist Anton Forde. 

Mawhiti is a beautiful combination of art, architecture and luxury with unparalleled views of the Hauraki Gulf and its uninhabited islands. Waiheke’s fantastic beaches, vineyards and restaurants are all on offer and only moments away, but you may never want to leave this ultimate escape. 

Please note: Minimum stays - 5 nights between Christmas and mid January,  3 nights holiday weekend, 2 nights all other times. Rates are based on four guests.  A $100 per person, per night fee applies to guests 5 to 8.  A cash bond of $1000 is required for a stay at Mawhiti.  Stay of less than 3 nights incur a $500 cleaning and linen set up fee.

  • We had a very restful and relaxing stay at Mawhiti in a gorgeous setting : the sculpture which was the inspiration of the house was magical and the house itself was serene, fully equipped and beautifully designed . We will return after a fabulous and flawless experience!
