Lantern House

6 guests · 3 bedrooms · 3.5 bathrooms
Light peeks out through wood slats and the pool glitters past a round moon window at this eastern-inspired Waiheke Island retreat. The villa is set 90 meters above the beach and cantilevered from the hillside, commanding incredible bay views whilst affording exclusive, peaceful privacy. It’s a few minutes from the white sands of Palm and Onetangi beaches, 2 of the best on the island for sunning, swimming, and dining.
Savor the views from a sunny deck lined with loungers and a 2.5-meter-deep, salt water plunge pool facing the sea. A garden wall separates the pool from a sheltered, sun-dappled private courtyard with alfresco lounging and dining areas, a built-in barbecue, and an outdoor fireplace. The home features central air-conditioning for all-season comfort, and the downstairs main level features natural cross ventilation afforded by electric mosquito screens. 
Designed by award-winning Herbst Architects, The home’s dark timber palette provides a quiet, private haven to restore the senses. At its heart is an open-plan great room with a living area, dining area, and fully equipped kitchen, bordered by glass walls on 2 sides for panoramas over the bay and easy access to the courtyard.
A wealth of world-class dining options are within a 5 minute radius, including Tantalus Estate Vineyard, Stonyridge, Te Motu, Casita Miro, Three Seven Two, and Ki Maha. The island features Te Ara Hura, a 100km-long walking track that takes you right around Waiheke Island. This amazing private walk takes in everything from the bustling villages of the western end to bush, beaches, birds and the remote eastern end of the island, and can be accessed near the home.
