Weitere wichtige Infos

You could say Omiha / Rocky Bay has only recently joined the republic of Waiheke. This was a world apart, an ‘island within an island’ and traditionally home to eccentrics and artists and diverse free-thinkers. The road over this hill was only built in 1956. There are wonderful possibilities for wandering around Rocky Bay. We back onto the wonderful Whakanewha Regional Park with a multitude of walking trails (the Forrest Heart Trail). Part of the Te Ara Hura (Waiheke Loop) walking track network where you can explore the coastline, pass through native bush and visit historical sites. There's a great range of walks, from short and easy through to more challenging, you can start at any point, finish wherever you want and go in any direction. A stroll to Whakanewha Regional Park takes you through lovely nīkau groves, and past the breeding sites of the endangered tūturiwhatu or New Zealand Dotterel. From Whakanewha you can link to longer walks across the island, passing through the Forest & Bird reserve, to emerge on the wide Onetangi Beach. Onetangi means ‘mournful sands’, referring to the sobbing sound of waves on the sandy beach. The middle of the island here is also home to vineyards and olive groves. It’s all about green space here – and your many options to wander through it. Or you can follow Te Ara Hura through the park, up to Trig Hill, and beyond that to Awaawaroa Bay. The walk from Rocky Bay around Te Whau Point is especially worthwhile, with great views to the Hunua Ranges on the mainland across the water. On the northern side of Te Whau headland, the aspect looking over Pūtiki Bay is equally rewarding. Your Te Ara Hura adventure can be built around overnight stays with us, tastings or great meals at vineyards, and top-up stops at cool cafes. The Chalet is 10-15 minutes walk (about 1km) to Rocky Bay and the bus route. On summer weekends, a Pop-Up Cafe operates at the local Omiha Hall with home baking and island coffee. Or it's 5 minutes drive to try local virgin olive oils at Azzuro, or dine at the stunning Te Whau Restaurant with magnificent views of the Waitemata and Auckland city skyline. Also close by is the Batch Winery and Thomas's Bach for high tea and bubbles or relaxed island-style eating. It's also a short drive to the world class Onetangi Beach, Stonyridge or Te Motu Vineyard and Restaurant, the Ostend markets, or a 10 to 15 minute drive to the commercial centre Oneroa and the main passenger ferry terminal Matiatia (or 10 minutes from the Vehicle Ferry at Kennedy Point).

We were absolutely delighted when we arrived in our bush retreat for the weekend! Simply well appointed, every last detail was considered - including a celebratory Mother's Day bottle of wine. We will definitely be back!

The studio is just as pictured; compact, very clean and comfortable with everything you need and extensive information about the area. If arriving by public transport there is a bit of a walk (15 min) up the hill from the bus stop but nothing unmanageable. Hosts were very welcoming and helpful with any requests. A great location to be away from the bustle of Oneroa and unwind.

Lovely, tranquil location. Cosy, very smart studio with all the amenities that you would wish for. Hosts were very accommodating and prompt with their responses. We really recommend Charlie Farlies for brunch and The Bach for dinner - incredible food and views!

Fantastic place. Exactly what you need if you want to get away from the crowds. Even without a rental car it was easy enough to get to the Studio via the Number 2 bus! Omiha is an awesome chilled out part of Waiheke. Excellent communication from the hosts too despite not getting the chance to see them all weekend. Thanks again Richard & Dawn.
