Sited at the top of the Onetangi Hill, in a crow's nest position, Cape Retreat is totally private - surrounded by expansive gardens and breathtaking views to the north, west and east. This beautifully renovated beach-style house has been completely rebuilt as a luxury hideaway.

The meticulously planned ground floor living areas open up through 10 glass sliders onto a spacious two-level deck where guests can relax with a chilled glass of wine on Coast beanbags and outdoor loungers. The decks overlook the 13 metre long in ground pool which disappears over an infinity edge. On an island renowned for fabulous views, this spot is truly breathtaking. Window seats frame the ground floor area and there are sunny spots throughout the house for everyone to curl up with a book and relax. Comfortable lounges, a fully equipped luxury kitchen, large dining area and seamless indoor/outdoor flow makes this home perfect for stylish entertaining.

There is one bedroom and  bathroom on the main level of the house. The master bedroom/ensuite shower room opening to a large deck (with amazing views over the headlands) and a second bedroom with three single beds are on the upper level. Between the upstairs bedrooms is a sunny living area which also opens on to the deck.

The adjacent studio, linked by a bridge walkway, houses another queen bed, one single bed and bathroom. There is also a second TV area with comfy beanbags.

This home works beautifully in all seasons. Amenities include, SKY television, Bose iPod dock, great books to read & board games. Outside grounds stretch out towards the emerald waters of the westerly coastline of Waiheke and there is plenty of room to play games or picnic in the garden.

Cape Retreat is a stunning property and a holiday here will surely be one to remember.

  • This "Bach" (if you can call it that) is absolutely fantastic. I had international guest over with me and they were blown away by the house, views and location. I would highly recommend this "Bach" to everyone looking for an experience on Waiheke with that little bit extra..

  • This is a beautiful and spacious home in the most exquisite setting, and the house is superbly equipped. There is nothing that it doesn't have, and the fixtures/fittings and furnishings are to a really high standard. The views are gorgeous in all directions, and the pool was a real treat on Waiheke when so many houses don't have them. We enjoyed an absolutely perfect 10 days there and didn't want to leave! Thankyou for letting us share this slice of paradise...:)
