For a limited time only, Chris Tate is offering his iconic private retreat for others to enjoy. Shortlisted for the NZ HOME of the Year 2015 and featured in Elle Decor Italy magazine, this house is like no other. Chris wanted to capture the back-to-basics simplicity of a camping holiday when he designed his "Tent House" at Palm Beach on Auckland's Waiheke Island.

The dramatic interior has a minimalist edge incorporating designer furniture. A sun-drenched deck and boardwalks lead to a spa pool and fire pit set amongst lush native bush. The house has an indoor/outdoor bluetoothed sound system and striking landscape lighting make this the ultimate couples escape. Centrally located, the Tent House is perfectly positioned for exploring vineyards and only five minutes from Palm Beach and the supermarket. There is a handy bus stop right outside. Staying here is an unforgettable experience, so reserve your booking while you still can.

    Beautiful property and the perfect retreat for a couple on a romantic trip to the island. Waking up to the view of native bush, soaking in the spa and sitting by the fire pit with a glass of vino are all highlights. Only drawback would be the house isn't overly friendly for us 6ft + folk. Stunning architecture comes with some compromises :)
