We stayed overnight at Watermark for a girlfriend weekend away, inspired by positive reviews on tripadvisor.com. The only complaint we had was that we could not stay longer. What a relaxing place. Lovely ferry ride from Auckland. A quick taxi ride from the passenger wharf, walking distance to Oneroa shops, short (though steep) walk down Tawa St to sheltered Little Oneroa beach and 3 different bus routes. (Worth getting a bus timetable). Small general store by Little Oneroa beach for basics - small supermarket and other facilities in Oneroa. Taxi drivers we had knew where Watermark was. Jo settled us in quickly, gave suggestions of places to eat and to visit. - she also gave guidance on what was open for breakfast for early starts. Lucky enough to get a beautiful sunny day in October which was (just) warm enough for a quick swim, but anticipated that had it been less pleasant, would have been nice to relax in the apartment and enjoy the view anyway. Would have liked to explore more of the island had time permitted. Attached photo shows Lillte Oneroa Beach and loctaion of Watermark in relation to it. Highly recommend for quiet, relaxing, modern accommodation.
