Kowhai Close - Secluded and quiet - on Waiheke Island


Nestled on 17 acres in prestigious Church Bay Estate, Kowhai Close is perfect for an island getaway holiday, weekend retreat or just a great spot to relax and enjoy some time out with family or friends.

Your ultimate escape begins as you drive down the winding driveway lined with mature olive trees from which we produce award winning organic extra virgin olive oil.


Kowhai Close offers accommodation for up to 11 guests comfortably.

 The complex is comprised of:

  • A self-contained two bedroom house
  • A self contained one bedroom apartment, accessed by a spiral staircase.
  • All accommodation can be booked individually or in entirety.


    Guests can enjoy the gardens with mature olive trees, wander to the spring fed pond and through the mature bush.

    Free parking and complimentary WiFi is available for all guests.

    Close to all amenities, yet far enough away to enjoy tranquility and privacy.


    World renowned Cable Bay restaurant/winery and the Mudbrick restaurant/winery are 10-20 minutes walk from Kowhai Close. Delightful Oneroa village is a 20 minute walk away.

    Alternatively it's only a few minutes drive to Mudbrick or Cable Bay Vineyards, Oneroa village shops and Oneroa Beach.


    Mature native trees are home for a multitude of bird life, to be enjoyed from close proximity.

    Sit with a glass of wine in the gazebo by the pond or row in the dinghy or take a stroll in the glade.

    Great coastal walks to explore and enjoy right on our door step.
