Te Whau
CrossTrees is situated at the end of Te Whau, a beautiful peninsula in the more populated western end of Waiheke Island.  Te Whau Peninsula is known for amazing views to the northern part of the island, south over Tamaki Strait and back towards Auckland City.  Waiheke Island is renowned for vineyards, olive groves, art and forest walks and all of these can be discovered within the Te Whau area.  Enjoy a swim at high tide, explore the rock pools at low tide, follow the coastal walkway to Kuakarau Bay Forest Reserve or follow the walking route known as the Te Whau Loop.  You can also experience


A Short Drive
Within a few minutes drive is Waiheke’s main supermarket and on Saturdays, the famous Ostend Market .   Did you know that the native dotterel breeding programme at nearby Whakanewha Regional Park is one of the most successful in New Zealand?  There are some scenic walks and picnic spots here too.  Enjoy a round at Waiheke Golf Club or take a walk along long, white, sandy Onetangi Beach. Visit the area known as Vineyard Valley including Stonyridge Vineyard, Wild on Waiheke and Te Motu.  We can also supply you with a copy of The Waiheke Island Art Map - A guide to studios and galleries and the Waiheke Island of Wine Map.  To explore the eastern part of the island we recommend driving “The Loop Rd” leading to Waiheke's secret fort at Stony Batter Historic Reserve.

How to get here
We recommend that guests have their own transport as there is so much to see and do.  Car ferry Sealink departs from Half Moon Bay and Fullers from Downtown Auckland Ferry Building (passengers only).   If you arrive as a foot passenger you may want to hire a car. Once you have made your travel arrangements we can provide driving directions from the wharf.  If you have never been to Waiheke before, it's easy to get around once you know how.

Make your Reservation
Due to limited availability, particularly over the summer peak season, we recommend booking well in advance. Once you have made your travel arrangements you can relax and look forward to your holiday.
