Tent House

Palm Beach

Book now

Don’t miss your chance to stay in one-of-a-kind celebrity-style accommodations. For a limited time only, designer Chris Tate is making his iconic Waiheke retreat available for visitors to enjoy. A 2015 NZ Home of the Year nominee also featured in Elle Decor Italy and Urbis, this luxurious yet back-to-basics 1-bedroom house is a functional work of art.

In designing his “Tent House” at Palm Beach, Chris sought to capture the simplicity of a camping holiday wrapped in sophisticated aesthetics. A dramatic minimalist interior in stark whites incorporates ultra-modernist furniture. A sun-drenched deck and boardwalks lead to a spa pool and fire pit set amid lush native bush, and an indoor-outdoor Bluetooth sound system and striking landscape lighting further stimulate the senses. An A-frame design paneled with floor-to-ceiling glass will make you feel like you’re sleeping among the trees.

Centrally located, the Tent House is perfectly positioned for exploring vineyards and is just 5 minutes’ drive from Palm Beach and the supermarket. A bus stop is also conveniently located outside. The ultimate couples’ escape and a truly unforgettable experience, this exclusive Waiheke accommodation is subject to limited availability, so book while you still can.

  • "Clear communication and waiting to let us in. Gave us full rundown on Waiheke.Gorgeous oasis right next to a bus stop. The spa was fantastic".                                                                   Annie Millard. Dec 2016
  • "Beautiful property and the perfect retreat for a couple on a romantic trip to the island. Waking up to the view of native bush, soaking in the spa and sitting by the fire pit with a glass of vino are all highlights. Only drawback would be the house isn't overly friendly for us 6ft + folk. Stunning architecture comes with some compromises :)"

  • "The property is very different and a very cool place to spend the weekend."
    P Churchman, Sep 2016
  • Great property and location! Especially loved the fire place and the spa - was really good that everything we needed to get a good fire going was provided."
    Prianka Dhanapaul, Jun 2016
  • This house is an EXPERIENCE. Amazing at night, a beautiful triangle lit up in the bush, so cool to see when sitting in the spa with a glass of wine or hanging out at the fire pit. Amazing in the morning, waking up feeling you're in the bush, after sleeping in a cozy bed. Everything was pristine in cleanliness and completely lives up to the rave reviews in Elle Decor Italy, Urbis, etc. You won't want to leave.
