Kaitiaki Lodge is our brand new luxury lodge located in Onetangi on Waiheke Island. Situated overlooking acres of unspoilt native bush with the Hauraki Gulf beyond the setting is simply spectacular. Sitting on the verandah with a glass of local wine, the light glistening on the ocean and the sound of native birdsong in the air, you would never believe that you were only 40 minutes from downtown Auckland.

The lodge has 5 large bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, two living rooms, a home-office, swimming pool, hot tub and even a private 20 minute nature walk. It has it all, making it a wonderful spot for family holidays, getting together with friends, corporate getaways or luxury retreats.

The property was designed by renowned architect Leon Bieldt and construction was completed in May 2022 meaning that everything is brand new. Every element has been thoughtfully considered for quality, functionality and environmental sustainability.

Kaitiaki means guardian and the lodge is designed to fit gracefully into it’s natural surroundings. Powered by a solar array on the roof and with a state-of-the-art water capture and treatment system this is a luxury experience with a small footprint.

Upon entering the house you are greeted by a stunning interior by Two Birds Design. With sustainable materials throughout, the interior fuses dark natural tones with a huge amount of light coming from the floor to ceiling windows at the front of the house.

On the top floor you will find the main living area, kitchen and the master suite.  

The kitchen is state-of-the-art with Fisher and Paykal appliances, induction and gas hobs, large fridge freezer and an espresso machine. There is also a new webber gas BBQ by the pool for Al Fresco dining.

A carefully considered bar area and large kitchen island gives you a great social space that flows into the rest of the living area.

A large custom-made dining table seats 10 comfortably and the bespoke wrap around sofa takes advantage of the magnificent views over the native bush and the ocean beyond.

Outside the living area is a large entertaining deck with lounge furniture, huge automated awnings to keep the sun off and a fireplace to keep you warm on colder nights.

Also on the top floor is the master suite, complete with a stunning bathroom and breath-taking views of the forest and ocean beyond.

To complete the top floor there is an office area with a dedicated desk space and a small water closet.

Heading downstairs you reach the guest suites. At the bottom of the stairs is another large lounge area with an amazingly comfortable bespoke sofa and a large smart TV. In this area you will find a wet bar with its own fridge freezer – perfect for preparing your poolside cocktails. Here you will also find the laundry area with washer and dryer.

At either end of the lower level you will find 2 large bedrooms, giving a total of 4 bedrooms downstairs as well as the mater suite upstairs. The downstairs bedrooms have split king-beds meaning they can be configured as a king-double or two king-singles and each pair of bedrooms has a luxurious bathroom with walk-in shower and underfloor heating.

The lounge area leads outside to the heated pool and hot tub, with enough space for everyone to enjoy the summer sun or lounge in the shade of one of the large cantilevered umbrellas. If you are feeling more adventurous you can take a stroll through 10 acres of private nature reserve. We have carefully constructed a track that winds its way through the forest and have worked hard to create an environment that protects the native species of plant and birds that are abundant in the area.  In our forest you will see (or hear) Tūī (Parson Bird), Kererū (Wood Pigeon), Kākā (Bush Parrot), Ruru (Moreporc – our native owl), Pīwakawaka (Fan Tails) and much more.

Right on your doorstep are a number of great activities to enjoy – with Batch winery and restaurant, EcoZip Adventures and scenic flights all available within walking distance. A little further afield you will reach the wonderful Onetangi Beach with a selection of bars and restaurants and the Onetangi road with some of the islands best wineries and breweries. Just a few minutes-drive further away are all the shops, cafes bars and restaurants of Ostend and Oneroa. Only on Waiheke can you enjoy this level of privacy whilst remaining so connected.

Kaitiaki Lodge is a truly special place, where modern amenities and luxury seamlessly blend with the natural environment creating a tranquil and relaxing space that is sure to create many incredible memories for years to come.

“We had a weekend with friends on my partner's birthday.
The house is beautiful, modern and spacious. The beds are comfortable and the bedding is quality.
The villa is in the heart of a huge property next to a vineyard. The view is absolutely beautiful.
Be careful, however, the road leading to the villa: it is very narrow and winding.
In all, it was a great stay.”
