“Perfect location for a fun-filled Waiheke stay, with a great host!”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

A short 10-minute walk (or 3-minuted drive) into Oneroa, these beautiful little 'jewels' are self-contained studio apartments just moments from Little Oneroa Beach, 2 of the 3 have sweeping ocean views, all three are perfectly designed and appointed with great touches like iPod docks, heated towel bars, and fluffy bathrobes. Jo, the hostess and owner, goes 'above and beyond' for every guest, helping to organize details for a wonderful holiday and always using her considerable network of Waiheke contacts to make your stay better. Would love to come back and stay again!

My friend and I stayed here for one night, on a weekend getaway. Jo, the host, communicated well with us to ensure we enjoyed our stay, sending us useful information, and offering more of her local knowledge, when we checked in. The location was ideal for our purposes - we caught a bus from the ferry, and walked everywhere after that. The accommodation is located up a fairly steep hill (only a 5 minute climb) but the views over Little Oneroa and the Hauraki Gulf are well worth it. Watermark provided an ideal base for exploring Oneroa and surrounds. Nearby bush tracks were full of flowering and fruiting native plants and native birds enjoying the spring bounty, including tui, fantail and kereru (native pigeons). On a cold, rainy, evening we found ourselves well supplied with a good heater and plenty of blankets. There were also DVDs, books and games available and a small torch came in handy, when we walked home from dinner in the dark. This is not a hotel - it is effectively a couple of self-contained studio units run by someone who lives onsite - but it is an excellent, affordable option for couples or adults looking to enjoy a few days on Waiheke.

Room Tip: The host generally allocates rooms to suit - both Suite 1 and Suite 2 have great sea views.

All the reviews had been great, and we were not disappointed. Jo is very organised and helpful and sent through some really good info. The apartment was perfect for our needs, modern, clean and simple and with a sea view. We had a lovely relaxing time.

Booked 2 units at last minute for family with 2 teenage sons. Helpful and easy to book. Location close to Little Onerewa beach and 5 minutes walk into Onerewa town which has great restaurants and shops for evening meal or lazy breakfast. Studios were large clean spacious and well fitted out. Would have preferred 2 bed unit but none available to so booked 2 separate studios.Greta views and location.

My initial contact was very good with an email from Jo including places to dine and things to do along wit check in and our information. Our check in was easy via Ray, as Jo was on annual leave.
Our 1 night stay was in studio 2. First impressions are great as you walk into a very spacious room with a small kitchenette area, queen bed and lounge area all in the large space. The sliding doors take you out to a sitting area with a lovely water view.
The bathroom is tidy, clean and has all you need to get yourself clean.
They provide a electric heater, as in the winter it can be a bit chilly. The tv has a few channels and a DVD player. Although it is on the smaller side of the scale.
My only niggle is what I consider an early check out time of 10:00 am. But that is just my opinion.

Room Tip: Ask for studio one, this had the best view, with studio 2 next.

The manager contacted me the week prior to our stay and has given me a welcoming message and some other helpful tips about places to go with in the island. The lady Jo was so helpful in getting my stay organised. On arrival the room was nice and clean very well set up, open concept, great view, has an outdoor area, nice big shower, functional kitchenette and they even gave us a birth day card and bottle of wine as we were celebrating my partner's birthday. On our departure, Jo has contacted me just in time informing my cell phone charger has been left behind in the room and I was able to pick it up right before we left on the ferry. Watermark is the best place to stay as it is near to the shops and the beach and in the hill so you get amazing views of the coast. Considering all other places on the island requires a minimum of 2 night stay, here you can book for a night and its perfect for just a quick overnight stay.

There are heaps of accomodation on Waiheke island . You can get a two night stay with spa bath included as well as good ground coffee in your room .
My sleep was interrupted by mosquitos several times during the night. in the morning my husband and I found five on the ceiling and two in the bathroom. t is winter but they are alive on Waiheke Island. There was nothing special to our one night out. A Coffee plunger in the room but no ground coffee were provided. Maybe I am comparing the accommodation in Australia to this , but I am rather disappointed. You can stay in a exquisite room for the same price in the USA and have a mini bar, even a continental breakfast included .

Room Tip: Places offering a little extra . A complimentary bottle of wine. Spa bath. After al, this is a pampe...
