This is a unique experience on offer from The Landing – one of New Zealand's most exclusive private estates. The Landing is spectacular in the winter, and there’s plenty to see and do at your own pace, guided by their friendly, locally based hospitality team.

Your experience starts with your first night at The Boathouse, snuggled up by the fire, wine in hand, looking out to the calm waters of Wairoa Bay. The next day you have the opportunity of a private cruise on the property's launch, followed by a one-on-one wine tasting with The Landing's winemaker, followed by a meal back at The Boathouse, prepared by your own exclusive chef.

The Boathouse winter package is NZD $9,000.00 for two nights accommodation at the Boathouse, and all activities stated below for up to four guests. Guests will also have gourmet supplies available to cook for breakfast and lunch. 

This exclusive package offer is valid until Friday December 1st, 2017.



The Landing is a unique heritage and conservation property in the Bay of Islands, comprising a thousand acres of rolling hills, beaches, wildlife sanctuaries and historic sites. The Residences at The Landing are a group of privately owned houses, offering premium luxury and comfort in unparalleled surroundings, all tucked away in your own private bay. The houses range in size, and can sleep between four and twelve people.

The Boathouse, by award-winning Cheshire Architects, is a striking, airy structure based on the design of the colonial wool shed that used to stand on the site. Located on the water’s edge at Wairoa Bay, close to The Landing jetty, The Boathouse looks out to some of the 144 islands in the Bay of Islands and beyond. The Boathouse offers extensive living space, including a covered courtyard, terraces and an outdoor fireplace area. Generous indoor and outdoor entertainment areas flow seamlessly into each other. The Boathouse sleeps up to four people in two bedrooms: one king master bedroom and one twin room.
