Hōpara is Māori for ‘explorer’. And in our view every moment exploring Waiheke Island, should be exemplary. Regarded as one of the best destination islands in the world, Waiheke Island boasts a number of New Zealand’s finest vineyards, restaurants, private villas, coastal landscapes and beaches, and all less than 15 minutes by helicopter from Auckland city.
What Hōpara offers are experiences predominantly focused around the more secluded areas of the island, with access to private properties not often available to the general public, including exclusive access to Man O'War Farm, without question, one of New Zealand's finest coastal private properties and vineyards.
