Away is a special place at the beautiful, unspoiled eastern end of Waiheke Island. A place to get away from everyday life, to unwind, relax in comfort and be pampered. Surrounded by hundreds of acres of pure nature, staying at the treehouse will rejuvenate your soul.
All the necessities of life are here as well as some deliciously decadent treats. Everything is organic, natural, the simple things in life with a touch of luxury.

The space
The Treehouse is a magical place to stay.

Wander down the bush path to catch sight of the treehouse that rises on a solid central base, standing sentry-like over the surrounding kauri, nikau, manuka, and many other specimens of New Zealand native bush. Take the boardwalk to this stunning octagonal treehouse, step inside to marvel at the abundance of space and the magnificent untreated timber ceiling rising to a soaring height producing authentic woody aromas.

High above the forest floor the wraparound deck offers a viewing platform over the forest canopy. Here you can relax in nature, listening to the beautiful native birdsong whilst enjoying one of the many wonderful local wines or beverages. Observe the subtle differences in colour and texture of the native bush, including a mighty kauri estimated between 800 and 900 years old. And when night falls, gaze at the stars above in the night sky. This setting is beautiful during the day and even more stunning at night.

Ideal for couples, however we can accommodate 2 additional guests with a sofa bed. Everything you need is here. A comfortable queen bed with quality cotton bedding, wood burner, a sofa bed, full kitchen and bathroom. We supply artisan spring water for drinking, all other water comes from the property’s freshwater stream.

The perfect place for a honeymoon, an anniversary, or just a special break away.
Rain or shine, summer, winter, autumn or spring, one stay won’t be enough and you’ll be planning your return visit. Total privacy, 100% indulgence.

No wifi is available on this secluded property. Spark network is available in the treehouse with 3G however Vodafone isn't active in the Treehouse. Full reception is at the carpark.

Guest access
Guests have full use of the treehouse. Upon arrival please park in the driveway as this will be your private parking space. Follow the pebbled path down, past the Cabin, until you come to the treehouse. Once you're inside there is a trapdoor to access the bathroom at the lower level. Simply lift the trapdoor, this operates on a counterweight. To close the trapdoor use your body weight to push down.
Most importantly enjoy yourselves.

Other things to note
The bathroom is accessed by a trapdoor and steps. It's great fun, but you need to be comfortable using steps :-)

Cowes Bay is at the beautiful eastern end of Waiheke Island, with rolling farmland, vineyards and native forest. It is a world away from the populated western end of the island. The lovely beachfront Man O' War Vineyard Restaurant & Tasting Room is a 5 minute drive away. While 5 minutes in the other direction is Passage Rock Vineyard. For daily provisions you will need to head to the supermarket in Ostend.
