‘Somewhere’ offers holidayers to New Zealand’s Bay of Islands a six-bedroom estate right on the beachfront
A new luxury estate has opened in New Zealand’s beautiful Bay of Islands archipelago offering the luxury of a ‘private island’ combined with the kiwi beachside.
With space to sleep 14 across six spacious ensuite bedrooms, ‘Somewhere’ offers a home away from home with three private beaches, a swimming pool, helicopter landing capabilities, a private dock and ultra-luxury accommodation.
“We’re seeing a very big increase in demand for this level of property from multiple markets,” said Jacqui Spice, Founder & Managing Director of New Zealand upmarket home rental company, Touch of Spice. “We have grown our portfolio of Mega Villas (Residences) from nine 12-months ago, to 17 today, with another 17 properties currently in the pipeline at this level.”
This private island estate offers complete privacy afforded by its location, combined with easy road access via a private bridge. ‘Somewhere’ is just 15 minutes’ drive from Kerikeri airport, which is just a 50-minute flight from Auckland International Airport.
Landing at the property by private helicopter or seaplane offers an even better opportunity to take in the archipelago from the air. The private jetty means guests can also arrive and explore by boat. The Bay of Islands includes 150 islands, fishing opportunities and spots for dolphin watching. Guests can halso hop on a stand-up-paddleboard or into a kayak to explore their surrounds.
A stay at ‘Somewhere’ comes fully inclusive with a private chef catering all meals including breakfast, lunch, pre-dinner drinks and canapés, morning and afternoon tea, picnics, BBQs and more. Staff are on hand to help throughout the stay organising activities and providing concierge services.
As well as overnight stays, ‘Somewhere’ is available for day celebrations and corporate groups looking to escape and reconnect in a new environment.
