Fossil Cove Estate is not your typical luxury holiday home. It does have all of the features you would expect in an opulent island hideaway, among them a media room, chef’s kitchen, scullery, gym and conservatory. But one of the things that sets this home apart is the enchanting blend of the contemporary and the exotic, with the use of native materials to complement its tribal-themed interiors.

Floor to ceiling windows frame breathtaking ocean vistas in every part of the house: the living room, dining area or any of the four master bedrooms. And with daily maid and chefs service by arrangement, plus use of Range Rover for long-staying guests, you’ll discover that all you have to do at this artisan-chic property is sit back and enjoy a holiday that’s all yours.

The location of this 12-acre waterfront getaway, in an exclusive gated development in the coastal headland of Waiheke Island, already promises the utmost privacy. To arrive here, you can catch a ferry from Auckland or take a helicopter and land on the private helipad for a more dramatic entrance.

Inside, the house features local stone walls, textured finishings and wooden bamboo ceilings that evoke a sense of unique, homey comfort. A remarkable collection of Maori and Pacific Island artefacts is displayed throughout the house which is complemented by amenities such as romantic open fireplaces, a Bose sound system, a gorgeous kitchen with fully stocked larder and a library.

A 17-metre heated infinity pool makes for a cool place to relax while marvelling at the view of Hauraki Gulf and its uninhabited islands and extinct volcanoes. The two dining areas and two barbecues make for a perfect setting for entertaining family and friends.

The four bedrooms upstairs, each with a marble ensuite bathroom and sweeping views of the Gulf, are spaces of tranquillity and beauty. Two of the bedrooms have California super king beds, while the other two are furnished with a queen-sized bed and a king bed that can be transformed into two single beds.

Downstairs are a further two bedrooms within a gorgeous fully self-contained apartment with lounge, kitchen, laundry and two king size beds that can each be configured as two single beds. All bedrooms boast Sohotel down lodge pillows in Yves Delorme pillowcases, 1000 thread luxury cotton linen and soft mohair rugs.
