Enjoying peace and tranquillity, on beautiful Waiheke Island, Griffin cottage stands out with its' unique architecture and ambience. Set in 15 acres, with vineyards and olive groves, this two-storey cottage is fully self-contained.
The cottage is ideally suited for a couple, however if you do wish to bring an extra person there is a single bed downstairs. A second child could also sleep on the couch or we can provide a cot, if needed.
Griffin Cottage offers romantic privacy in a natural setting, amongst fruit trees, vineyards and farm paddocks.
We extend an invitation for guests to take part in feeding the farm animals including the horse, sheep, pig, rabbit, doves, chickens etc; and this has been very popular indeed.
The cottage is set in 15 acres, so there is plenty of space to explore. Enjoy ample parking near the Cottage and a circular courtyard with rose quartz set in the stone wall.
Options to walk among the vineyards, orchard and olive groves, native bush, animal paddocks etc; and to neighboring restaurants and wineries/distilleries including award winning Te Motu and Tantalus.
Interaction with guests
We like to meet and greet you upon arrival; and offer you a free tour of the property and all our animals. We then aim to leave you to enjoy your own peace and tranquillity. We live on another part of the property, and are available by phone, at your convenience.
