This Mediterranean style country cottage is situated on the edge of the vineyard at Cypress Ridge estate with scenic rural views to neighboring Miro/Casita Miro and Obsidian Vineyards. Cypress Ridge is a working vineyard and olive grove situated in the Onetangi wine valley. 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 neighbouring vineyards.

The cottage has 1 bedroom with a superking sized bed. There is a full bathroom with rain shower and a small kitchenette with fridge, gas hob and convection microwave in the open plan living area. Bi-fold doors open the lounge on to the patio with gas BBQ and seating area where guests can dine and enjoy this tranquil and private retreat.

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 its 2.5 kilometers of white sand and a further 10-minutes down the beach leads to the local pub.

The Vineyard Cottage is situated at the end of a gravel road which is suitable for 4 wheel drive vehicles only. Parking for two wheel drive vehicles is approximately 40 metres from the cottage with parking for 4 wheel drive vehicles is just outside the cottage door. 

*The cottage now has a lovely new spa pool - photos coming soon!

  • Beautiful cottage! My partner and I loved our stay. Gorgeous views across the vines, comfy sofa and TV, wood burner, farmhouse kitchen, big bed and room for 2 in the rain shower. We had a delicious meal at Casita Miro, 5 mins walk away. Can’t wait to return.

    Kate - Jun, 2022

  • This place is postcard perfect. A place of serenity and beauty nestled amongst the vines and olive grove. Cosy cottage with a well equipped kitchen for self catering, luxurious bed and the shower ..! Ideal romantic spot for a few carefree days away from the hustle.

    Lolly - May, 2022

  • We stayed at the Vineyard cottage for 2 nights and it was absolute bliss. It is such a beautiful spot, both inside and out. The accommodation is so perfect and so well thought out. The views of the vineyard are so stunning, especially at sunset (but also just stunning all day!!). You will not want to leave this place! Of course we’ll be back :)

    Stacey - Apr, 2022

  • Most beautiful little cottage. We absolutely loved our stay, and stunning with all the autumn leaves! Can’t recommend enough!

    Bianca - Mar, 2022

    Megan - Feb, 2022

  • Gorgeous property and super cozy for a couples getaway! Loved how close it was to everything yet felt so removed.

    Catherine - Jan, 2022

  • We loved our stay in the Vineyard Cottage! Beautiful grounds and interior with everything you could need. It rained for most of our trip so we chose to cook one night and the kitchen was well equipped for this. The hosts were easy to communicate with and helped us with any issue we had. Seamless check in process. Would absolutely stay here again!

    Niamh - Dec, 2021

  • Wonderful cottage. Ideal location and views to die for. Would thoroughly recommend and we hope to be back!

    Felicity - Dec, 2021

  • An absolute treasure. A little reluctant to share as it was so fabulous. Perfect little getaway with bonus of sharing with our border terrier Kip So many choices of great restaurants. Absolutely recommend for the perfect getaway.

    Faye - Jul, 2021

  • Amazing location right behind Casita Miro! Lovely wee stay right in the vines!

    Agustin - Jul, 2021

  • What a place! Sat just above Casita Miro (walking distance), overlooking vineyards, this property is the idyllic place for a couples getaway. I cannot recommend this place enough and will definitely be staying there again!

    Chris - Jul, 2021

  • Amazing place, fabulous amenities. Great bed! Our young dog loved it just as much as us too! Nothing to fault.

    Tessa - Jul, 2021

    Liam - Jun, 2021

  • Beautiful accommodation, everything was perfect. Highly recommend.

    Tessa - May, 2021

  • Amazing location in amongst the vineyards and next to Casita Miro. Lovely set up inside. Great to have a roaring fire on in the winter.

    Michael - May, 2021

  • Incredible stay.. cosy and warm! We love the vibe and energy of this place.

    Steve - Sep, 2020

Lovely clean comfortable cottage with a lovely outdoors area with a spectacular view. Great location for walks, vineyards and the beach Great having Netflix’s as well. We will stay again for sure.

    Katrina - Feb, 2020

  • Kim meet us and took us through the beautiful cottage, the pictures don't do it justice , its just delightful, with lovely views of the valley, vines and even horses on the hill. Its just about 50 steps away form the divine Casita Miro Winery, which I cant recommend enough, the food is second to none and the service is impeccable. It was just the most relaxing weekend in a beautiful part of NZ.

    Xavier - Aug, 2017

  • We had a wonderful stay at Vineyard Cottage! Absolutely fabulous! A gorgeous little cottage with beautiful Mediterranean character, clean, fresh and cosy, right amongst the vines with view on the vineyards and flowers in the garden attracting tui feeding at arm length just in front of the window. The fireplace and heat pump heat the place wonderfully for relaxed winter evenings. We were welcomed by an already warm cottage, and fresh bread and beautiful milk in the fridge. What else would you wish for? Will be back in this cottage next Waiheke visit!

    Sandy - Jun, 2017

  • Tranquil, unique. The cottage was adorable and had everything we needed. Fabulous setting among vines and olives but near to some of the best wineries. You can walk to lovely Onetangi beach and there is a bus service but transport for other excursions is desirable. We will definitely try to book this again.

    Peter - Dec, 2015

  • Beautiful location with great access to all local vineyards and beaches

    Vicky - Oct, 2015

  • Rustic charm with amazing view of vineyard and hills giving a sense of complete isolation despite being minutes to beach and other attractions. A wonderful stay for myself, wife and daughter, we hope to be back sometime in the future.

    Jonathan - Sep, 2015

  • A magic cottage in a special location which we'd love to return to some time!!

    Daverg - Sep, 2014

  • Wow, stunning! What an amazing location and a fabulous cottage. It was everything we hoped for and being able to let our pooch ramble through the vines was really great. The cottage had everything we needed and was beautifully clean. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and / or stay again

    HelenM - Aug, 2014

  • We were looking for a "Tuscan winter getaway" and we couldn't have found better. The views were still gorgeous in winter and made even better when sitting by the fireplace. The cottage even came with a sample of olive oil which we enjoyed with locally-bought bread. It was so good that we ended up purchasing some to take home. HUGE bonus that our dog could stay too (hoping other bach owners take note as that was a big selling point for us)!

    Davenport - Jul, 2014

  • Lovely outlook across a working vineyard, secluded feeling yet close to the beautiful Onetangi Beach. Well equipped and maintained. Perfect romantic getaway. Would definitely stay here again.

    Emma - Mar, 2014

  • What a magical private spot, felt like we could have been in the south of France or Tuscany! The cottage has everything you could need and walking in we immediately relaxed and went into holiday mode. Close to the fabulous Onetangi beach we did lots of walks on the beach and around the property and our dog had a fantastic time playing with Max as well. We will return and have already recommended this magical spot to our friends even though we'd love it to be our little secret
