Directions once on the island:
Once on the island, it is approximately a 30 minute drive from the ferry at Matiatia to Connells Bay. Follow the main road towards Onetangi then turn right just after the Z petrol station into Waiheke Road.
After 1.5 km turn right again towards Orapiu (this is still Waiheke Road) and continue on for 9km, passing Passage Rock Vineyard on your right. At the top of the hill you will come to a T junction clearly showing Connells Bay. Turn left into Cowes Bay Road, drive 1.3km and look for the second yellow letterbox. This is Connells Bay! We are 142 Cowes Bay Road.
If you are just visiting the Sculpture Park then please park through the gate. We will meet you here at the pre-arranged time as this is the start of your visit. Please ring us on 09 372 8957 if you are delayed for any reason.
If you are coming to the guest cottage we recommend a 4wd or AWD vehicle as we do have a rather steep driveway but please advise us if you are arriving without one. After 500 metres take the left hand fork to Connells Bay.
