Welcome to Marino Ridge Waiheke Island
Marino Ridge is Magical. Whichever way you look at the 240° harbour and ocean views, whatever the season.
But this is no magical illusion. There really are spectacular views year round in this serene sanctuary of natural beauty and luxurious contemporary design. Marino Ridge guarantees spell-binding leisure experiences that make dreams come true.
We - Peter and Caroline - welcome guests personally to three superb, light-drenched contemporary suites in our purpose-built retreat on Waiheke Island, the famed Island of Wine – and of olive oil, too – just a 30 minute fast ferry ride or 10 minute helicopter transfer from Downtown Auckland.
Marino Ridge was created to satisfy our dream of offering international standards of hospitality, honed over years of high-end hosting, captaining and catering for the discerning owners of exclusive private super yachts in the US and Europe.
The striking contemporary residence was designed by one of New Zealand's most respected architects, Geoff Richards. His creation is a thoughtful acknowledgement of the land's features, setting Marino Ridge seamlessly into the spur over an amphitheatre, creating a sense of strength with serenity and soaring height.
Share our love of good food and wine at complimentary evening drinks and canapés. In the mornings enjoy our lovingly crafted fresh sumptuous breakfasts, teas and coffees while bedazzled by the boundless natural beauty of the land, sea and sky about you as the day begins...
Day and night the views from Marino Ridge are compelling, relaxing, even hypnotic. Dinghies, yachts and super-yachts anchor in the bay below or sail by. Further away, shipping passes to and from the oceans of the world.
Equally spell binding are infinitely diverse cloud formations, extraordinary light, and the ever-changing hues of the waters of Waitemata Harbour and Hauraki Gulf. The amazing clarity of the air emphasizes colours and highlights sunrises, sunsets and the night sky. Throughout, the abundant native bird life flits and flutters in flashes of colour.
This stunning setting includes three and a half acres of native bush and gardens in a sheltered position that features a virtually private pebble swimming beach at the foot of the grounds. It’s clean and safe, a perfect spot for a spot of contemplative fishing, for leisurely floating about, for kayaking and paddle boarding.
The delights of Marino Ridge are mere minutes from the ferry port of Matiatia at the preferred north-west end of Waiheke. There’s also convenient access by car ferry, sea plane or by helicopter direct to Marino Ridge’s private helipad. You choose!
The restaurants, cafes and wine bars of Oneroa township are close by.
Marino Ridge. A magical choice for getaway relaxation but with plenty to see, do and taste whenever you want. We truly are privileged to be part of such an enchanted space and look forward to sharing it with you.
