Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Relax in this secluded setting, close to the beaches amongst magnificent Taraire trees. Built with a couple in mind, this spacious architect designed house has been fitted out with a contemporary meets retro interior. A split level living space reaches out to the landscaped garden with two large decks that catch the sun at different times of the day.

This sunny north facing retreat is only a 10 minute walk to the beach, and 15 minutes walk to the shops, restaurants and cafes.

The space
There's a mezzanine library that looks out over the living space where you can lie back and read.

Further upstairs the treetop bedroom looks out across the valley down to Te Huruhi Bay. Lie back and watch the native birds fly through the canopy. There's a luxurious king size bed with all linen supplied. The adjacent bathroom has a luxurious shower and view out to the bush.

This sunny north facing retreat is only a 5 minute walk to Little Oneroa Beach, and 15 minutes walk to the Oneroa shops, restaurants and cafes. There's plenty of walking tracks close by including one that leads from the house down through a bush walk to Blackpool Beach.

Travel from the downtown Auckland Ferry Terminal to Waiheke on the Fullers or Sealink passenger ferries takes 35 minutes and once you’re at Matiatia ferry terminal it’s a 5 minute taxi ride to Blackpool House.

Alternatively Sealink offers a car ferry service that takes 45 - 60 minutes departing from Half Moon Bay in East Auckland plus some weekend runs from Wynyard Wharf in Auckland city.

Guest access
Guests can access the whole house.

Other things to note
To get to the house from street level there are 30 steps down to the house. You need to be able to carry your luggage from your car down the steps to the house.

Location

Auckland, New Zealand

Blackpool House is located on an isthmus, between two beaches. On the northern side there are the white sand beaches of Oneroa and Little Oneroa. On the southern shore lies the more tidal Blackpool Beach.

From Blackpool House it’s an easy 15 minute walk to the Oneroa shops, beach, cafes, restaurants and cinema, a 10 minute walk down to Little Oneroa Beach, and 7 minute walk to Blackpool Beach.

Oneroa and Little Oneroa are great swimming beaches any time of the day. At sunset the western end of Little Oneroa beach is a perfect place to watch the setting sun with a glass of wine and pizza.

At Little Oneroa you'll find the wonderful Dragonfired Pizza food truck; great coffee at the Little Oneroa Dairy; and delicious takeaways at the Fish and Chip shop next to the dairy.

Blackpool Beach feels like coastal New Zealand 50 years ago. Framed by bush cliffs one end and the Marae at the other it makes for a great walk from our house. You can get there via a track at the end of our road or alternatively there’s a track through native forest, accessed from the bottom of our garden.

From the western end of Blackpool Beach there's is a shared walk/ cycle/ drive road around the coast to Surfdale Beach.

Along at the western end of Blackpool Beach you'll find Piritahi Marae - Waiheke's traditional Maori meeting house. Next to the Marae at the end of the beach are two tracks. One that heads over the hill to Mud Brick and Cable Bay vineyards and another one that follows the coast.

Several other stunning coastal walking tracks start from Little Oneroa and Oneroa Beaches.

By car Cable Bay and Mudbrick Vineyards are 5 minutes away or a half hour walk.

I live and work in Auckland, in the film industry. My partner and I acquired this piece of paradise on Waiheke 24 years ago, and after nuturing the native forest back to its natural state, we built this beautiful house. Influenced by Japanese and green architecture it was designed by Dominic Glamuzina and built by his brother Kevin. I hope you get a chance to experience the house, the land, the local cuisine and everything that is wonderful about Waiheke.
