“Oyster Inn - lovely stay”
Reviewed 13 February 2013

My husband and I had a super relaxing experience at the Oyster Inn from start to finish. It is a little pricier option on the island but we felt worth the extra $$. Some highlights...
Location: Oyster Inn is smack-dab in the middle of Oneroa, the largest 'town' in Waiheke, overlooking the main drag and Oneroa beach and is only about 5 minutes taxi ride/20minute walk. Bus stop two blocks down got us around to Palm Beach, Onetangi beach and several wineries easily.
Owners: Both Jonathan and Andrew offer friendly and personal service, Jonathan picked us up
at the ferry in the cute yellow Oyster Inn VW bus pictured on their website and also showed us to our room and Andrew made a point to stop and say hello during our dinner there.
Room: Clean, simple and stylish modern white rooms. We stayed in room #2 which had a nice far away view of the ocean. The balcony is on the small side but nice to have the door open with the fresh air. The bed & bathroom were great.
Dinner: Delicious and fresh seafood (we had oysters, fish'n'chips and spaghetti with clams) and loaded garden-picked salad. We asked several locals for recommendations and all of them suggested Oyster Inn restaurant not knowing we were staying at the Inn.
All-around, great stay. Would stay again next time.

This is a beautifully appointed and charming destination, a highly recommended visit if traveling to New Zealand or spending time in Auckland.
Our hosts were gracious and welcoming and took great care of us over the weekend. The restaurant and bar sit overlooking the ocean in this tiny seaside village, a casually chic and stylish spot, we enjoyed excellent food and service here.
I would definitely stay here again.
