Welcome to Wild Days!

Welcome to Wild Days, Waiheke Island’s own rum distillery and accommodation provider. Set in 10 acres of native bush, Wild Days is located in the middle of the island, between Palm Beach, Onetangi Beach, and Ostend, meaning you’re never more than 5 minutes drive from vineyards, beaches, and shops.

The owner, Waiheke local Russell, has been distilling rum for 15 years to perfect the smooth, caramel flavours Wild Days Rum is known for today. He and his daughter Charlie decided to expand to accommodation in 2016 to give people a sense of the old school that Waiheke was beloved for.

Together they have built Wild Days up to be a unique and whimsical adventure for guests, and an experience people remember for years to come.
