Stay - The Villino at Cypress Ridge Estate

The Villino (or little villa) at Cypress Ridge Estate is set on a 22 acre working vineyard and olive grove situated on the slopes of “vineyard valley” with spectacular 180-degree northern sea views over Onetangi Bay and on towards Great Barrier, the Coromandel and outer gulf islands. The Mediterranean style villa is nestled amongst brightly coloured terraced gardens, fruit and olive trees with lovely outdoor areas (including a spa pool and barbecue) where guests can relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and privacy of the estate.

The Villino has one queen bedroom, a full bath with rain shower and bathtub and a small open plan kitchen/living area with wood burning stove. Large bi-fold doors open the house to the terraces and breathtaking sea views creating a beautiful open space.

Guests are welcome to explore the estate… have a walk through the olive grove and vineyard, enjoy the harvest from the large kitchen garden, find fresh eggs in the hen house, tramp through an acre of native bush with several 1000 year old Puriri trees or picnic in the shade of huge Pohutukawas overlooking the neighboring vineyards.

The property shares boundaries with several award winning vineyards and restaurants including Miro/Casita Miro, Stonyridge, Te Motu and Obsidian… making spectacular wine and food a short stroll away. A 10-minute walk down the hill leads to picturesque Onetangi beach with it’s 2.5 kilometers of white sand and a further 10-minutes down the beach leads to the local pub.

Come and experience the peace and quality of a country lifestyle combined with a beach holiday… all with quality wining and dining on your doorstep. Rates include a lovely full self-catered breakfast, all linen and exit cleaning. A vehicle is available at an additional cost, please enquire.
