The Owner's Private Beach House, Circular Bay located at the pristine eastern end of Waiheke Island

Situated at the beautiful, pristine Eastern end of Waiheke Island, on a private beach called Circular Bay sits a lovingly restored family cottage. It is located 40 minutes’ drive from Matiatia ferry and Mudbrick Vineyard & Restaurant, 30 minutes’ drive from Kennedy Point Vehicular Ferry.

Circular Bay is a world away from your everyday life, or even your everyday holiday. The property is a special retreat for those who enjoy absolute privacy, relaxation and great times.

From the moment, you start to wind along the coast, you start to feel it. A retreat – a complete get away from anything urban and an entry into a luxurious coastal escape.

Your private beach is 800m of unspoilt, Pohutukawa-lined coast. It’s perfect for a honeymoon, weekend break, romantic escape, or family holiday. Nestle into your cottage and leave the outside world behind.

Wake up and run 20m down to your own private beach for a swim before you venture on an afternoon outing to nearby Poderi Crisci, Man O’War or Passage Rock wineries to sample some of the stunning produce Waiheke Island has to offer. Finishing off your perfect day with a relaxing spa.

The house has Wi-Fi access and large smart TV as well as a basket full of board and outdoor games for evening or wet weather entertainment.

The Retreat accommodates 6 people comfortably. Only 1 room has a door.

The Mudbrick Cottage at Circular Bay is a Waiheke gem! The cottage was the perfect location for our Waiheke Ladies weekend away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The rugged access added to the adventure and remoteness of the cottage, and did not disappoint on our arrival.

The complimentary Mudbrick bubbles in the fridge certainly made the drive worthwhile, as did the beautiful setting and accommodation. Mudbrick has gone to great lengths to make the cottage a comfortable and relaxing place, providing all the necessities for a Ladies weekend away – complimentary bubbles, bathroom extras, comfy beds, a very easy to navigate kitchen to allow us to cook up a storm, and Netflix for decadent late morning and afternoon viewing in our jammies!! However, the icing on the cake was most definitely the hot tub, which we took full advantage of throughout our stay regardless of the cold, windy and rainy weather!!

Thank you Mudbrick for the wonderful hospitality and memorable weekend on Waiheke. We were so impressed, we visited your winery on our way to the ferry to ensure we topped our weekend off with quite a few bottles of your famous Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignons, and of course olive oil. The small fortune was worth it!
