Lovely little boutique hotel on the edge of Oneroa. Nice laid-back vibe could disguise the fact that this place is run well & the customer is at the heart of things. We arrived early from the mainland on the day of our check-in, before heading out, but a coffee and some breakfast instantly appeared. Our boatshed room had lots of... More

Exceptional stay. Nothing was too much for the fantastic staff. Great little hotel, suite, food and garden. Highly recommend the lighthouse suite if you don't mind stairs. Very relaxing, romantic and peaceful. Will be back!

Everything we read by other reviewer was true. There is nothing more we can say except to say as of October 2016 5 stars is definitely appropriate for The Boatshed. Spectacular room, fantastic food, gracious staff, and a host who does not miss a detail to make the experience unforgettable. Glad we splurged.

Congratulations Johnathon on a wonderful establishment. Beautifully presented with a wonderful team who all love being there and making everyone's stay so enjoyable. The presentation is wonderful, food fabulous, the attention all one would want and the views wonderful. And what a garden, producing much of the produce put on our plates.

We loved our very comfortable room with lovely ocean views. We had a delicious breakfast and dinner too. If you are looking for a comfortable, restful, uncomplicated stay choose the Boatshed....

Overall, We were really not sure what to expect when we booked the Boatshed; we read all the reviews and had a general idea that it was a nice place. From the moment we arrived, we were repeatedly impressed with every aspect of the hotel. We were assigned a very cool, interesting room which was actually on three floors with... More

While I could go on an on about the physical beauty of the setting and the property itself, what truly sets The Boatshed apart is the warm and welcoming service.

The Boatshed is a small luxury hotel on Wiaheke Island - sitting above the beach of Oneroa with extensive views out over the bay. Best described as "barefoot luxury", this seaside hotel and the island its on are a perfect reflection of the modern New Zealand holiday - with a high level of design detail, beaches, vineyards, galleries, and stunning coastal walkways make this little place the perfect tonic for those wanting to get away from it all.
