When you've finished chilling with us, there's plenty around to do as well. Right next door to Stonyridge, Te Motu & Tantalus Vineyards (why not make a tasting trio out of it) you get to visit all four vineyards at the same handy busstop. We're also just a few minutes down the road from the spectacular Onetangi Beach. Also adjacent to us is the Waiheke Golf Club, the Onetangi Sports Park, and if you're feeling 'fit' why not take advantage of our Waiheke Walkways and head up Putiki O Kahu, the volcano directly overlooking our site. Here you can walk through some dramatic Māori history where there were significant pā (fortified villages) at Rangihoua Putiki-o-kahu, the sacred hill at the sports park, and Whakanewha.
A bloody battle in 1821 led to Waiheke being abandoned until Ngāti Paoa returned in the 1830s. To find out more head just down the road to our dinky little museum which is full of Waiheke's history. We love our little island, and hope you get to enjoy it just as much as we do!
Our beautiful spot's located on Waiheke Island, just 35 minutes by ferry from downtown Auckland, or 45 minutes from Halfmoon Bay by car and passenger ferry. If you're lucky enough to have a boat, then there's plenty of moorings, and even a helipad on our front lawn if you've a special occasion.

Public transport on Waiheke's super easy. You can simply step off the ferry at Matiatia, grab the No.1 bus to Onetangi, and there's even a busstop at our gate! Check out the following link to Tourism Waiheke for all Waiheke's Ferry & Bus timetables.
From Matiatia Wharf (Fullers Ferry)
– 8 Km, approximately 10-15 minute drive
From Kennedy Point Wharf (Sealink Ferry)
– 5 Km, approximately 4-10 minute drive
Just ensure you allow plenty of time for getting on and off the ferry, parking and of course delays. If you're booking our activities, our timetable runs bang on time, and you need to be here at least 5-10 minutes prior to check in and avoid missing out on valuable 'shooting' time. All activities booked are subject to agreeing to our T&C's, so please read before you arrange your transport, of simply ask us for advice.
Simply walk out back of Matiatia ferry terminal, and look for Fullers buses to Onetangi - these depart from Matiatia Wharf every ferry sailing and stop directly outside Wild on Waiheke (ie 10am ferry drops off at our gate at 11.20am)
Let us take care of organising transport for you, arranging pickup & dropoff (preboooked groups of 10+ only)
Make it a day to remember by arriving true celebrity style on our local helicopter providers. There's even a helipad on our front lawn (can land on site by prior arrangement, call us to book)
