Wild Thyme
on Waiheke

So much thought has gone into creating each suite, and you can tell that the minute you pull up to the front gate.

When Bruce sat down with his architects to design the property, he wanted to create something that not only he could live in and enjoy, but areas that could be purpose-built for accommodation studios that would provide his family space and mod-cons when they came and stayed "overseas" (eg, Waiheke!). The family are spread far and wide these days so the units are available for booking for the majority of the year.

Wild Thyme is located in Little Oneroa, close to restaurants, vineyards, beaches and cafes.

About Bruce

Now, Bruce can be a talkative sort if you're in the mood, but if you asked him to tell you about himself, he'd probably say he's a retired farmer from down South and then change the subject. He loves a laugh, a good game of footie, and the occasional sampling of the many local wine varieties found on the island. Perhaps the best reflection of Bruce as a host is the feedback that Wild Thyme receives from its guests!

  • My husband and I were treated with a surprise overnight at wild thyme guest house on gorgeous Waiheke Island. We were warmly welcomed upon arrival. The hosts addressed every possible need we could have then surprised us with a superb bottle of bubbly and a 50th wedding anniversary card. A charming personal touch that set the tone for our stay. It was wonderful. the accommodation is extremely comfortable with delightful Bush and sea views. Our hosts unexpectedly provided us with our evening meal and a superb breakfast was delivered to our room next morning. A high quality yet relaxed and special experience. Very Highly recommended. Thank you both it was memorable.
