My wife booked a surprise escape here for my birthday & it was fabulous in every way. Sharon looked after our every need including a flight from North Shore airfield which made our trip so easy. The hospitality, food & accommodation was without fault. Exceptional.

Attention to detail unparalleled. Jonathan and Sharon run a perfect boutique hotel. The chef is excellent, and produced wonderful meals including my breakfast favorite sweet potato hash with chorizo. Great attention was paid to dietary restrictions. We stayed across the road in a suite on the second floor with doors that opened to the outside, (but you couldn't step out),...

Everything about the boatshed is exquisite. For a busy Auckland couple having a couple of nights away from the kids in full indulgence mode this is ideal - do the two might package one is not enough!

It was my husband's 50th birthday weekend so I booked The Boatshed as a special treat, and oh my goodness what a treat it was. From the moment we arrived the service from Jonathan and his team was outstanding, nothing was too much trouble and the meals were fantastic. The accommodation is just beautiful and the setting hard to beat....

We concluded our destination wedding/honeymoon by staying two peaceful and relaxing nights at the Boatshed. From the moment we walked in we felt right at home. Sharon and Jonathan were the perfect hosts. The views overlooking the ocean were spectacular. The fireplace in the main living area was the perfect place to end a great day wine tasting at the...

My fiancé and I booked to stay at The Boatshed for a romantic weekend away. From the moment we arrived we were in relaxed bliss. The owners and staff were charming and service faultless, it was seriously the best I'd experienced in my life. Every small detail had been thought of, from the delicious treats in the suites to the...

From the moment we walked up the drive through the front gate I was blown away by the Boatshed. Of course I did expect to be due to the price but a few minutes into the experience I knew it was worth it. From the gorgeous kitchen garden, to the sun loungers with ocean views, to the beach-chic-charm-island life decor...

Pretty much everything is right about this place. Warm, informal welcome, beautifully decorated and themed, spacious communal area, lovely mix between private and communal and artful cooking. All in all a great place to escape to and to explore the lovely island of Waiheke from.

We have given this hotel full marks because we could find no fault with it. We had one of the boat shed suites and stayed here for three nights. The welcome was warm and genuine. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and in keeping with the...

For a superb luxury holiday provided by wonderful host Jonathan Scott, his friendly staff, superior service, plus excellent cuisine by Chef Adam, The Boatshed Boutique Hotel on Waiheke Island is my top recommendation.. The design of the building, interior decoration and furnishings completely compliment the stunning island views. A picturesque & unique cottage garden supplies the immaculate kitchen with tasty...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. We look forward to seeing you soon... ... more   less
