Bay of Islands, New Zealand
Perhaps New Zealand's most exclusive and most beautiful gated estate for the utmost in luxury and privacy.
The Landing encompasses four superb residences; the Cooper Residence, the Gabriel Residence, the Vineyard Villa, and the Boathouse; all offering luxury, privacy and bespoke service in unparalleled surroundings. Situated in the Bay of Islands, the residences sit within a one thousand acre landscape that is rich with history and blessed with spectacular scenery. A stay at The Landing allows exploration of the onsite vineyard, six private beaches, native bush and bird sanctuaries as well as access to a range of outdoor activities. The Landing also offers an exceptional food and wine experience, with personal chefs tailoring every meal.
Simple yet elegant, the Boathouse captures the spirit of the quintessential New Zealand holiday, lounging in the sun and spending long days on the water. Sitting right on the water, enjoy the sun loungers with the bay at your feet, a beachside outdoor fireplace and pizza oven, and even a basketball court. With just two bedrooms and one bathroom the Boathouse is ideal for families, or can be added to a booking at one of the other residences to serve as a daytime pavilion or extra accommodation.
Also hidden away on the estate is a population of Kiwis which can be seen on an evening spotlighting tour.
many many many thanks!!!!!!
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.
