Welcome to Hekerua Lodge Now ‘Co-Living House’ (New concept created in 2021) on the magical Waiheke Island, the island of sun, wine and fun! Only 35min from downtown Auckland.

As you know, the impact of Covid has decimated what was known as the ‘New Zealand tourism industry’.

But we believe that breakdowns are good because they lead to CHANGE.

The various lockdowns we’ve endured have benefited many parts of New Zealand’s natural environment.

So we thoughts let’s learn from the impact of Covid & use it as an opportunity to think differently, think sustainability and create meaningful change in our community –

To look beyond sustainability is to look towards regeneration and restoration, and emphasise our responsibilities as kaitiaki to create positive CHANGE.



CO-LIVING is the trend of living with other people in one space, that encourages its residents to interact and learn together. It’s a new concept on Waiheke in response to the shortage of housing. A place where residents with shared interests value things like sustainability, Nature, social networking, and the sharing economy.


A MODERN COMMUNAL for seasonal workers in a central bush setting environment that offers many benefits while being only a 35min ferry ride away from downtown Auckland! 



–Great Shared Space All included

Communal area, covered deck area, rock pool and spa, Entertainment room, sound system, semi commercial kitchen, appliances, bed, bedding and light furniture, veggies gardens, garden, BBQ, fast Internet, and much more!


One of the great things about co-living is the flexibility it affords. 1 to 6 months agreement. This is a great bonus as many people who gravitate towards the idea of co-living are nomads and travellers who move from season to season or just their wanderlust to continue exploring.

—Sharing Resources

Save energy, resources and reduce waste by sharing with others.

–A sense of belonging

Co-living’s first and best selling point is community. Instead of living alone and without any sense of companionship, co-living affords individuals the opportunity to have it all.

–Foster Collaboration

–Shared experiences

Putting yourself out there and meeting like-minded people in Paradise you can imagine there’s plenty of ways to get familiar with your new home and enjoy Waiheke in good company!
