Set in native bush, the house peaks out from the trees to the sea and the lights of Auckland. This contemporary designed home hangs in the trees with large windows that open to nature. A hideaway quite & secluded but close to beaches & vineyards.

Surrounded by lush native New Zealand bush, the relaxing songs of Tui's and Wood Pigeon's fill the house.This is an outstanding getaway from everyday life.

An Incredible property!

Penny’s property was incredible! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were very impressed with how well maintained the property was. The house booklet provided ample information on activities, restaurants and places to see and made our stay much more enjoyable. We highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a getaway amongst the trees

A little haven in amongst the tree tops...

A little haven in amongst the tree tops. A well presented, private and clean property - leave your alarm clock at home and allow the native tui’s and kereruru’s to wake you with their glorious birdsong. I would advise to hire a car so that you can travel the course of the island, but beaches, grocery store and vineyards a plenty are all within a 10min drive. Thanks for a great stay!

Nice and quiet place

Nice and quiet place. We enjoyed our stay, especially the huge sofa which can be changed into a super big bed.

The Island Tree House at Rocky Bay is an amazing place

Steve User Profile Steve August 2018 The Island Tree House at Rocky Bay is an amazing place. The location is quiet and peaceful, tucked away in the bush yet still just a short stroll to the beach. The house itself is very well designed, warm, and has a beautiful outlook. If you're looking to get away from it all then this is great place to do so. Penny was a terrific host, very helpful and she kindly checked in on me mid visit via text which was perfect as it was caring but unobtrusive. I also greatly appreciate Brownie Girl being able to join as well. Thanks for allowing her to stay and being so welcoming in that regard. I would happily visit here again.

This is a brilliant house.

This is a brilliant house. Nestled in a fern and Manuka forest, with coast and first views, it is warm, secluded and very enjoyable. There is a regional park 5 mins down the road with great bush walks and a waterfall. The house is modern, and very warm, with comfy beds and an open fire. Great for a winter break. Rocky bay is a quiet part of Waiheke. Best if you have a car (there is a good bus service nearby, but due to hilly topography, a car is much easier). Penny made arrival and departure so easy and smooth, with local hints and tips. Definitely recommend highly.
