The Gabriel Residence features magnificent views over the Bay of Islands, high wooden ceilings, and most notably, an enormous amount of space for her lucky guests. The timber-lined living, entertaining and recreation areas include three lounges, a huge entertainer’s kitchen with scullery, a games room, and multiple decks, terraces and patios.
Also hidden away on the estate is a population of Kiwis which can be seen on an evening spotlighting tour.

We have been blown away by everything - hotels, food, people, golf, wine - the list is endless. You did an amazing job
Planning a 7 week trip is daunting enough without the complications of COVID cancellations, rebookings, and closures. Yet every connection, every transportation detail, every accommodation, every meal, everything was flawless.
From our arrival in Sydney .. to our last stop in Queenstown .. we will carry with us the best memories of our trip and all of your efforts. The incredible private boat tours .. the bespoke wine tours with the best guides .. our accommodations .. and the excellent itinerary and pacing, made for a perfect trip.
We can't thank Southern Crossings enough for making this trip all, and more, than we had imagined. You allowed us to see the best of your countries: the people, the beauty, the culture. Five stars, a blue ribbon, and a gold medal to everyone at Southern Crossings!
Your country, its people and your team could not have made us feel more welcome.
Thank you for all the special moments you enabled us to experience.
