Welcome To CrossTrees on Waiheke Island
Are you planning a holiday? CrossTrees Chalet is the perfect place for a weekend getaway, mini-break or to celebrate a special occasion. The chalet is modern and completely self-contained with quality furnishings and breathtaking sea views from every room.
The setting among native trees is enhanced by the amazing views over the water. Soak in the spa bath while enjoying the peaceful surroundings. The fully self-contained chalet has a super-king size bed, television and stereo with surround sound system. Should you choose to dine in, kitchenette facilities include a microwave, dishwasher, stovetop and electric frypan. A washing machine and dryer are also available for your convenience.
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 bush walks and all of these can be discovered within walking distance of CrossTrees. 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 visit Dead Dog Bay Wetland Garden and Sculpture including Momo Gallery, alpacas in the olive grove at Azzuro Groves and wine tasting at Te Whau Vineyard. You may be lucky enough to join "One Table, No Menu" at Te Whau Lodge.
A Short Drive
Within a few minutes drive is the 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 need extra help because you have never been to Waiheke Island before, click here.
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.
