Halcyon is brand new, purpose built premium accommodation, for up to 6 people on Waiheke Island. With stunning green valley views that cross the water of the inner Hauraki Gulf to the lights of Auckland City.

Your hosts assure you of your privacy with the use of 2 acres of pasture, orchards and relaxing entertainment spaces.

Feel free to wander amongst the resident 'farm' animals or simply take a long hot soak in the spa, with peace and tranquility - interrupted only by birdsong.

Your hosts are Matt and Carla, we will provide a thorough handover to guests on arrival.

We welcome enquiries about our VIP ferry collection and drop off service - provided in our classic car for an extra charge. We are able to offer bespoke wine/art tours on request.

We have a resident dog that loves to meet new people. Roxy is very friendly and will happily play with children for hours (if allowed).

If you are not comfortable with dogs, please let us know in advance of your stay.

We are 5 minutes drive from the local supermarket and other amenities. Great local 'flavour' is ready to be explored at the Ostend Market each Saturday from 8am.

Halcyon is a 20-30 min (approx) walk to Obisidian Winery and Casita Miro. A much longer stroll will take you to Onetangi Beach for dining on the strand or to enjoy a day in the sand and surf.

For further exploration of the island, we recommend bringing or hiring a vehicle.

Halcyon is the home of 'Naturally Waiheke' - luxury handmade natural body products - hand crafted in small batches - contact Carla for more information.

The name Halcyon is meaningful and the definitions that resonate with us are:

adjective - tranquil, happy, idyllic, etc.esp. in phr. halcyon days, usually with nostalgic reference to earlier times

noun - a legendary bird, identified with the kingfisher, which is supposed to have a peaceful, calming influence on the sea at the time of the winter solstice.

    I've been to many many lodges and baches across NZ now and I can say that the Halcyon has been the best out of them all. The view is spectacular and the outdoor area for late night entertaining is amazing. Fire place, spa pool, music and all with a view, couldnt ask for anything better. Instead of going out for dinner we stayed and cooked at the halcyon as all the facilities were far too inviting and it was just so lovely!

    We have just enjoyed a fabulous weekend at Halcyon- Matt and Carla a absolutely lovely hosts and the house is amazingly luxurious. We loved the outdoor fire and hot tub. The house has absolutely everything you could ever need and is in a beautiful spot. We went for a birthday weekend and the hosts gave the birthday girl a lovely gift of Naturally Waiheke products that Carla makes herself. Thanks again for a lovely weekend and we will be back for a longer stay next time.

    Absolutely stunning! Great care and thought has been put into every aspect of this property from the beautiful design and decor, to the gorgeous outside entertaining area's.... Not to mention the stunning views. Great fun was had feeding the sheep and chickens, and allowing us to spend time with the beautiful Roxy was greatly appreciated. Testers of 'Naturally Waiheke' products was a lovely touch and I can definitely recommend these. I couldn't think of a better way to spend my 40th b'day
