Caroline and Pete - Landfall Oct 2010

About Us

With backgrounds in high-class hospitality, Peter and Caroline shared a dream of treating their friends and guests to the same levels of luxury, fine cuisine and service. A spectacular setting on Waiheke Island was the perfect place to realise this vision, and in late 2011 they commenced work building Marino Ridge.

Peter had previously worked in the Navy, then in computing and later still spent 10 years as a superyacht captain in the US and Europe. Caroline had worked 25 years with Air New Zealand as international cabin crew. In 2003, they combined their complementary skills with Caroline becoming the stewardess and chef on board a 31m luxury barge skippered by Peter on Europe’s canals. They later worked together for seven years as captain and chef on three superyachts owned by another family.

It was during these years cruising the Mediterranean and Scandinavia that their concept of luxury hosted accommodation took shape. And late December 2014 it was finally realised, as Marino Ridge welcomed its first guests.

Completing the welcoming party at Marino Ridge are two friendly Standard Poodles - Isla, who was born in 2011, and her nephew Fabio, born in 2014.

Peter, Caroline, Isla and Fabio look forward to meeting you.
