The Glasshouse  – A sublime romantic getaway

The Glasshouse is no doubt the answer to anyone wanting to elope to a sanctuary romanticism. Read ahead for the journey that will take you to the Glasshouse.

The momentum of a romantic getaway needs to reach a crescendo of utter pleasure with nothing standing in its way. The moment you arrive at the totally private Kauri Mountain Point, where stands The Glasshouse you will experience a wave of refreshing conviction that this is going to be one captivating experience.

First of all – think total luxury, gorgeous fire crackling stereo quietly pumping seductive Ibiza-like sounds and a flute of Veuve at your fingertips. You are nestled in a special place, nature and the elements meet at this land point, which has seen the most powerful storms battle it out against summers of stunning heat. The Glasshouse is uniquely positioned, not too much not too little, but with such architectural consideration that your Veuve can be enjoyed in close proximity to view, the gorgeous outside fire under the stars and of course the luxury of the bedroom.

The Paul Clark-designed copper-roofed building is encased in glass which allows you to lie in bed with views out to the many islands and twinkling ocean stars that are the lighthouses protecting mariners. And this is before even looking up for shooting stars, the moon drifting over and the quiet nocturnal calls of our beautiful birds.  There is almost too much to take in, let alone the reason for being here….and then drift off.

Enjoy a lazy sleep-in with the sun and a light breeze blowing into The Glasshouse. Despite being so remote we have moved heaven and earth to get you access to wi-fi so surf your delicious coffee time and enjoy catching up and then planning your day and night ahead.  Take a walk down the lawn and swing yourself into a hammock between two ancient Pohutukawa trees – the sea below and birds competing will revitalise your senses and then go prepare a special breakfast. But, you are here for romance, do you really need to cook?

You can, of course, pre-book the chef for an in-house dinner or full catering or we can just leave you alone.
