11th November 2022

Much the same as the 7 wonders of the world, we have hand-picked 7 spectacular homes and private villas for your remote luxury holiday in New Zealand. Whether you are looking for a secluded hideaway or leaning a little closer to civilisation – we have homes to make your heart happy.

Falcon Brae Villa – Nelson & Abel Tasman

Sleeps 9 | 4 Bedroom | from $7000

Perched upon a hilltop, bordered by rivers on either side and its very own forest, this stunning property offers exclusive hosted use with a personal chef and house staff. The private location is perfect for a hidden getaway. Boasting access to native bush walks, swimming pool, gym equipment, media room and more, there are plenty of things to do during your stay in Nelson.   

Jagged Edge – Queenstown

Sleeps 6 | 3 Bedroom | from $4500

Ultra-modern and sleek, this home feels very secluded despite being just a 10-minute drive from the hustle and bustle of Queenstown’s social scene. Grab a bottle from the private underground wine cellar, head to the infinity pool overlooking Lake Wakatipu, or cosy up in the media room – whatever takes your fancy, this home is certainly an iconic Otago luxury retreat.

Tarapunga – Bay of Islands

Sleeps 6 | 3 Bedroom | From $5250

Situated on a vineyard, this property oozes serenity and splendor. Wander the secluded beach nearby and make the most of the private deep-water mooring, a great base for swimming, fishing & diving. After a day exploring the Bay of Islands, head back home for an afternoon game of tennis followed by a session in the sauna. Indulge with daily three course dinners prepared by your personal chef and a welcome bottle of wine from the very vineyard you are staying on.

Scrubby Bay at Annandale – Pigeon Bay

Sleeps 8 | 4 Bedroom | from $5690

When it comes to luxury oceanfront stays, Scrubby Bay is a firm favourite. Let the sound of the waves wash over you as you lounge on the deck of this beautifully designed property.

Warm and welcoming, the cedar-clad interior glows in the sunshine giving you cosy cabin vibes with no sacrifice in space. 

This private retreat offers a premium experience from start to finish.

‘’Stay where the world can’t find you.’’

The Longhouse Tirimoana Whare Roa – Otago

Sleeps 12 | 6 Bedroom | from $1610

Overlooking Karitane beachfront, this luxury coastal getaway benefits from all day sunshine and stunning views. A sanctuary for your wellness; head into the infra-red sauna followed by a cool spritz in the outdoor shower or grab a yoga mat and head out into the garden. A short 30-minute drive from Dunedin, it’s hard to believe this tranquil seaside settlement is tucked away just around the corner.

The Boathouse at The Landing – Bay of Islands

Sleeps 4 | 2 Bedroom | From $7800

Timber lined with large barn doors; this home is full of character with fresh, modern finishings. With double height living space and sliding doors onto the garden, the property is not short on sunshine or sea breeze. Nestle by the outdoor beachside fireplace or get the pizza oven cranking. There’s nowhere better to spend quality time with your loved ones – resting right on the water’s edge.
