Wolfgang Hernter has created a unique holiday home which offers guests a glimpse of New Zealand's farming lifestyle, tempered with the sophistication of European culture.

The Bay of Islands

The view from Milton Park


Known as the 'winter-less north', the Bay of Islands is a cluster of over 144 islands with sheltered coves and sandy beaches extending into the blue pacific - the perfect location for sailing, surfing, big game fishing, scuba diving, swimming with dolphins and numerous other land and water based activities. The Bay of Islands also offers vineyards and fine dining as well as a delightful arts and crafts culture.


Most of these attractions are within 20 minutes of Milton Park making it the perfect base to explore while offering very secluded and peaceful surroundings with only the sounds of the birds to wake you in the morning. Whatever you choose to do, Wolfgang's local knowledge will be invaluable and he is happy to arrange bookings for you.


Milton Park is only a 10 minute drive from the Kerikeri Airport offering daily flights to and from Auckland and a pick up service is available for visitors.
