Our love of Waiheke Island started as soon as Andrew & I met.  We were married at Stonyridge Vineyard in 2013.Originally from Auckland city, we shifted permanently to Waiheke for a change in lifestyle in 2017.  It's been the best decision we made.

We started off by owning a small Bach in Oneroa. Then we bought & sold a few times in different areas of the island for over 4 years before becoming permanent residents in 2017.

In 2017 we purchased a rural property with 2 accomodation studios close to Matiatia Bay. We lived & ran that business for 5 years. It was a fantastic experience.

We are now living at 125 Church Bay Road. This beautiful rural property has amazing views back to Auckland and award winning wineries as direct neighbours. The best position we could dream of.  We share a passion for wine & entertaining so this property was meant to be.

Our 2 cabins were a perfect addition to our property as we are situated in a tranquil location, perfect for travellers to enjoy.

Church Bay Road, on which we're situated, is named after a Maori Anglican Church that was erected in 1881. The church blew down in a gale many years ago and the surrounding farmland was sold and eventually subdivided in the late 1980s. Across the road from us, Mudbrick Winery has been in operation since 1992, firstly as a winery and now a beautiful venue for weddings. Mudbrick is one of the most iconic romantic vineyards on the island.

Across the road from us is Jurassic Ridge - a boutique family vineyard - has won international accolades and their cellar door is open daily for wine tastings. Cable Bay Vineyard is also nearby offering exquisite cuisine, award-winning wines and breath-taking views. 

I was previously involved in the fashion industry.  My husband Andrew is a builder. We are now living the dream being rural landowners, with all that entails, and accommodation providers.

We invite you to share our beautiful island paradise. 125 Cabins is a special place on Waiheke.
