Elegance. Privacy. Peace of mind.

Wawata Estate is an ultra high-end gated establishment nestled within a pristine natural environment. Designed for maximum comfort, luxury and privacy, it is the ultimate secure and tranquil island retreat.

Premium Touches

Careful attention to detail and design is evident in each and every element throughout the estate, from the pristine landscaping and signage to the palm-lined entryway and beautifully maintained natural areas surrounding the home sites. Underground, there are power and high capacity fibre optic internet connections, filtration drainage, an internal communications system and a backup water supply to your home.

Simplicity

At Wawata Estate, we set out to give you all the joys of a country lifestyle without the burden. Homeowners are responsible for maintenance of their building platform area, but the Estate will take care of the rest - carefully maintaining the native bush land, valleys, walking trails, streams and wetland. Rubbish collection is from your home, and backup water is available at the press of a button.

Automation

Wawata Estate is a private community positioned behind secure electronic gates. Each property will be fully connected and automated, giving residents control of exterior gates, road lighting, water and more from the comfort of their own homes.

Mountains to Sea

Combining multiple feats of sustainable engineering such as vegetated filter strips and underground rock fill channels, a holistic stormwater solution has been created aligned to ki uta ki tai (mountains to sea) and Maori cultural values of Wai-Maori (freshwater).

Access

Roads are positioned to minimise visual impact, avoid archaeological sites and provide user-friendly access to house sites with the best views on Waiheke. Gabion baskets, bollard lighting and regularly spaced passing bays provide that extra level of safety.

Water

Having a private water bore consented and installed in the development ensures residents will benefit from a year-round water supply to supplement private water supply tanks. Firefighting water is also within reach in roadside hydrants in the event of the unthinkable.

Regeneration

An incredible 300,000+ native trees have been planted to cover the hills and valleys within Wawata Estate, in time creating a peaceful sanctuary that invites wildlife and provides privacy and seclusion. The surrounding wetlands have also been restored to ensure thriving natural environments and beautiful outlooks and re-establish them as a haven for wildlife.

Native species

Care has been taken to enrich the environment for the original residents of Wawata Estate, including rare geckos and lizards, wetland birds like the spotless crake and grey heron, and bush birds such as the fantail, tui, silvereye, grey warbler and kahu - the star of the Wawata logo.

Archeological history

A thorough archeological assessment of the site was undertaken to ensure the historical, cultural, spiritual and traditional features of this land were not compromised in any way. The sites remain identified - a part of Waiheke’s history and a fascinating enhancement of the Wawata environment.
