Slipper Island is one of the world’s most exclusive island getaways, a paradise right on our doorstep for you to enjoy in complete privacy with family and friends.
Normally this level of exclusivity is reserved only for the “rich and the ridiculous” but the current owner wants to share the experience of owning your own Private Island with as many people as possible. We have reserved 10 nights this season for ten lucky couples or groups to rent exclusively our whole 217Ha Private Island.
Slipper Island is an authentic Kiwi private island with four villa’s and two charming “Bandas” – 5 star glamping tents imported direct from Africa and come complete with Queen bed and en suite just a step or two away from your own private beach! We can accommodate 12 people (and maybe even a few more if you ask nicely) at a time so you are welcome to get a group of your mates and come and enjoy a blissful time on Slipper.
It has taken us years to discover and develop this remarkably uncommon destination as a very special, private island getaway that we now invite you to experience. Simply fill in the form and tell us your preferred date/s and we’ll get back to you or call Olivia now on 027 961 6711 and she can tailor make your dream experience.
Beach house romance, nostalgia and Kiwi elegance personify our four villa on Slipper Island, designed for a perfect summer in coastal whites, greens and blues. We have two 2-bedroom Villas that can accommodate two adults and three children or four adults. There is also a sleeper couch in the lounge. We also have two studio Villas that can accommodate a couple or two adults separately in the same room.
In addition to our Villas, Slipper Island has two charming 'Bandas' which are traditional luxury African Safari Tents. Each of them has a master king-sized bedroom, dressing room and en-suite. They can accommodate a couple and two young kids or a couple and an adult. The Bandas are a step or two away from your private beach.
On Slipper, you can rest, rejuvenate, enjoy adventure sports and explore your pristine playground, where shades of turquoise infuse your days and magnificent evening star-scapes spices your nights.

Many of us find it difficult to relax, but the beauty of Slipper Island is that it relaxes you. You’ll find yourself spontaneously relaxing while you restore your vital force in a serene but adventure-filled environment where time dissolves. The Island invites you to enjoy simple, exquisite pleasures… strolling along your own private beach or exploring the 217ha Island.
You have exclusive use of the Home Bay Island Marine Reserve on your doorstep with a superb choice of water and marine activities. A boathouse full of equipment is yours to enjoy.
We have a fully equipped boat if you would like to do some snapper fishing. Catch and release or bring home the catch of the day and cook it for dinner in our outdoor kitchen or on the BBQ.
Swim in the translucent, clear waters and seek out oysters for your lunch or dinner. Enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime experience of an up-close encounter with Eddie our resident Eagleray.
Take a walk and explore the place – some beautiful spots to be found, particularly our own lighthouse on the south side of the Island. Perfect place for a picnic!
Slipper Island is a truly stunning New Zealand treasure. Slipper Island Resort makes up 95 percent of the 224 hectare island meaning our guests have access to nearly the entire island.
This means freedom to explore, safe, sheltered, sandy beaches for swimming, paddling or building sandcastles, wide expanses to hit or kick a ball around, space to fly a kite without powerlines, hills to climb up or mountain bike down—good old-fashioned kiwi fun!
