Escape the hustle and slow the pace in complete privacy. Secluded and tranquil, The Ranch is set in a sheltered olive grove on Waiheke’s western edge. Unwind on sun-drenched courtyards and balconies, where westward views to the Gulf remind you that on Waiheke, the ocean is always close by and the sunsets are always phenomenal.

With oversized dining tables inside and out, this home is designed for long evenings with good company. A covered outdoor living area provides a natural gathering point for sundowners, relaxed barbeques, fireside wines and hot tubs under the stars. Inside, every detail invites comfort and connection, including a cosy Studio stove wood burner, vintage rugs, and works by New Zealand artists Pat Henly and David Hessel – while a separate games room gives everyone space to play.

A beautiful 50th with family and friends

I was a guest for the 50th birthday bash of my oldest pal. What a fabulous location, sheltered and calm and nestled down a curving olive lined driveway.

The Ranch was an expansive homestead able to comfortably accommodate many high volume teenagers and hard working, early rising adults. Views, reading nooks, a big shared living space, games/rumpus and ensuites to Africa.

I was adjacent to, but away from, the action in the cottage. A lovely two bedroom apartment. Had great sleeps and showers!

The ranch was an elegant back drop to a lovely time hanging with my beautiful bestie and her clan. Great times.

Perfect, peaceful family retreat

Talk about an upscale and totally approachable home away from home. It was a weekend of relaxed, easy, comfy, unfussy luxury for us and our guests.
The Ranch has everything you need for a big family get together (well curated kitchen essentials, the BEST bean bags (!!) and a teenage hangout room) alongside all the little luxe touches (beautiful towels, gorgeous comfy furnishings, Real World toiletries). The Ranch ticked all the boxes for us and was a perfect backdrop for our 50th celebration.
Major highlight for us was the outdoor kitchen (think Big green egg, BBQ, generous casual dining set up, outdoor fire with genius windscreens and hot tub). Despite visiting in late Winter it was our go to each night we were there for s'mores and blanket clad digestifs.
My sister and bestie - both frequent insomniacs - slept like babies in the cottage. So peaceful.
Close to town, ferry, wineries, sculpture walk and good restaurant options.
Thank you Allpress, we'll be back!

Beautiful, comfortable NZ holiday

My family and I stayed at The Ranch and it was just so perfect. We were there to celebrate the life of our mother who passed away a year ago. Allpress (Hannah) was so easy to work with and went above and beyond. The beds were so comfortable and the kitchen was so well stocked with everything you need to cook. Thankyou so much.
