Reviewed 3 June 2012

We were very happy with our stay, Jo was great to deal with. Room was lovely and clean, bed was a little firm. Quiet area with great views and a central location.

Room Tip: Room 2 had a great view, and sunny.

Well organised with excellent communication from Jo during the booking process. The studio was clean and well appointed. Exactly right in all respects.

We stayed at the watermark my brother in room 1 we were in room 2. The view was loveLY. unfortunately the cleanliness of the room was something less than desirable. We had towels and flannels in the room that when wet became smelly and revolting.... On finally contacting Jo by leaving a message on a pad at her door we were left some more, all the same again. Mould around shower and main room doors thick dust as well in the whole both of the rooms. (Both rooms were extremely dusty). These had not been serviced before we arrived. We were there for two days and only saw Jo the day we arrived and the morning we left, as she was not available , she kept leaving notes on a pad at her door. Our reason for going to Waiheke was over shadowed by the Watermark rooms. Not a place to go to if you have allergies of any sort. TV problems someone in th complex interferring with the station we were watching we could see what they were scrolling for. We lost our program by this time we gave up.

Room Tip: Room 1 and 2 had good views.

My partner and I stayed at Watermark over the weekend. The accommodation is well kept, centrally located and reasonably priced.

Our room (number 3) had a reasonable view as it is a corner unit and I can imagine that from apartments 1 and 2 it would be pretty spectacular.

I would recommend this property in the midrange price bracket on Waiheke. Definitely provides the best value for money around the NZ$200 (US$170).

My husband and I stayed here for our 4 day Easter break and could not have been happier with the choice. Excellent communication from Jo who advised the best way to get to Watermark from the ferry terminal and also recommendation for winery tour.

Watermark is only 5 mins from Matiatia Ferry by taxi or you can hop on a Fuller's bus which is included in your ferry ticket and get off at the bus stop at the bottom of the hill if you're feeling energetic.

The studios are located on top of a short hill which is only about 5 mins walk from the bottom of Tawa Street with amazing views of Little Oneroa Beach. We were met by Jo and taken to Studio 1 which was a spacious studio with a modern bathroom and our own small backyard overlooking Little Oneroa Beach. Jo was great in giving us the information we needed for our stay.

We decided against hiring a car but this was not an issue as a walk into Oneroa Village with its restaurants and shops was only 20 mins (we even did this at night) and during the day you can take the beachside track. Additionally, there are bus stops at the bottom of the street to get around.

A wonderful 4 days on Waiheke Island and would not hesitate to recommend Watermark.

We stayed over Christmas and loved every minute of it. The apartments have great views and you can use the bbq's for free. Wifi is free and fast and it's only a short walk from little oneroa beach. The only things I'd say is don't leave your door open at night cos there's mossies a plenty and it is up a big hill if you have trouble walking.

Reviewed 10 December 2011

We stayed at the Watermark for three nights and wished it could have been more. The view of the beach and bay are fantastic. In fact, many locals would ask where we were staying and would remark that we had picked a great place that was as good as, if not better than, the $700+/night place just down the hill from the Watermark. The room was spacious and had all the amenities we needed, including free wireless. Jo, our hostess, was very helpful in providing everything we asked, from a fan for the room to arranging a cab to the ferry.

It is a short walk down the hill to Orenoa's shops and restaurants and an even shorter walk to Little Oneroa beach. There is also a bus stop right at the bottom of the hill for those without a car.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 have the best views. Room 3 only has a partial view.
