“PERFECTION DISCOVERED”
Reviewed 24 January 2011

As the weather was wonderful we decided on the spur of the moment to take our young visitor from London across to Waiheke to get some much needed sunshine. Fortunately, Breakfast on the Beach had a vacancy for their only triple room.

We took our own car across on the Sealink Ferry from Half Moon Bay and drove ourselves to Breakfast on the Beach. Upon arrival we were welcomed by our wonderful hosts, Keith and Marilyn who made the Lodge feel like it was our second home. A personal tour ensured we knew where everything was, including the shady hammock, 5-person spa pool and outdoor garden area perfect for a relaxing evening drink.

The bedroom had all the elements of top quality accommodation but with the feel of comfortable understated elegance. We borrowed the lodge’s kayak for an afternoon paddle on the gorgeous waters of Blackpool beach before sharing drinks and canapés with our fellow guests and hosts in the evening.

When searching for a place to stay on Waiheke we wanted somewhere where we could relax, enjoy the beach and some water activities, and treat ourselves to a slice of luxury. Breakfast on the beach fulfilled all those dreams and more.

Keith has built this beautiful Lodge with complete privacy in mind. Each room is so quiet. Their service is second to none, (nothing is too much trouble) and would be rated top anywhere in the world. They are fully deserving of their Trip Advisor award and I unreservedly recommend B.O.T.B. to anyone, from honeymooners to people just needing a bit of rest and pampering. It is well worth making the trip across from Auckland central. You won’t be disappointed.

We've just returned from 2 nights with Keith and Marilyn - and can't speak highly enough of our stay at Breakfast on the Beach. From the moment we arrived and were collected by Keith from the ferry port, we were treated with real care, and our hosts could not do enough to look after us. The attention to detail during our stay was unrivalled, as was the view from our stunning boutique room...the setting was tranquil and serene. Native birds and butterflies kept us company in the well-kempt gardens as we listened to relaxing music played throughout the grounds, and relaxed in the spa pool. Drinks and canopes with other guests gave a homely and welcome feel.
The breakfasts were exquisite - presented beautifully and so very tasty!
This is a real jewel on a stunning, unspoilt island and we'll definitely go back! It has to be experienced to be believed!

This is the ultimate bed & breakfast. Keith & Marilyn are excellent hosts and have thought of everything to ensure your stay is as relaxing and trouble free as possible. They do mouth watering breakfasts and the rooms are well appointed and elegantly comfortable with stunning views over Blackpool Beach. The hosts are welcoming and friendly, are more than happy to help you explore Waiheke and recommend places to see and provide the little touches to make the stay just that more special. Whether you stay for 1 night or 7, we cannot recommend this place highly enough.

We were both speechless on arrival. Even after researching and looking on the internet at the lodge, to see it in real life took our breath away. We could not fault the welcome or service from Keith and Marylin, it was outstanding. Our every need was met with breakfast, drinks, nightcap, arranging reservations and bookings.

A huge thank you to Marylin for arranging our booking, dinner reservations and spa treatments in the comfort f the lodge, and to Keith for passing on his knowledge of the local surroundings, wine and cooking breakfast. The breakfast was out of this world. Who would think of the combinations they have, and presented in such a way you dont want to disturb it.

Keith and Marylin went out of their way to make our stay as relaxed and special as we could have ever imaginged. The perfoect end to our honeymoon, after travelling north and south islands in a campervan.

I would highly reccomend the lodge to anyone.

Spent 3 days at Breakfast on the Beach after arriving in NZ for a 16-day honeymoon back in late October 2009. This hotel was by far one of the best I've every stayed in. Just an amazing location literally right next to the water. Each room is beautiful with an amazing view of the bay. Breakfast each morning was amazing! The owners are the most friendly, personable people I've met abroad. Each night they sat with us for at least and hour and provided us with very delicious hor d'oeuvres and great conversation. They drove us to one of the local restaurants and even graciously bought us each glasses of wine. They provided us with great advice on other areas of the island and also New Zealand at-large to visit. I miss this place a lot and very often think back to the very romantic, calming, relaxing stay I had here. When I return to NZ some day, I will head straight for Breakfast on the Beach and stay for much, much longer!

5 stars all around. Marilyn and Keith are two of the most wonderful hosts I've ever encountered in my many years of travels. Amazingly accomodating, incredible breakfasts, and a beautiful property. I hated leaving. My girlfriend and I are planning to return. Don't forget about the OYSTERS! You won't stop eating them while on Waiheke. Breakfast On The Beach is a must. First class B & B, 5 stars. Done!

We came here for our honeymoon after getting married in September. This is definitely the best B&B, hotel, etc. I've ever been to in my life. Some of the things I loved about this place were:
1. location: You can't ask for a better location when you can see the ocean (unobstructed) from your room. Also, the B&B is impeccably decorated and modern--just my style.
2. amazing service: Keith and Marilyn are so friendly and inviting. When we arrived our first night, Keith greeted us at the door and helped us to our room. He also made reservations for us at local restaurants and helped us plan our itinerary. In addition, they both arranged amazing massages for us during our stay.
3. delicious breakfast and more: Every morning, Keith and Marilyn created artistically beautiful yet super delicious breakfasts for us. They would leave us unexpected treats in our room as well--chocolates and wine:) In addition, we joined them for wine and snacks in the evening before taking off for dinner
4. Amazing amenities: The property has a hot tub which was a plus!!! Also, Keith let us borrow some bikes to tour the area. If you're into books and board games, they have plenty to keep you occupied as well!
My advice... come here if you want to be pampered and if you want to experience luxury:)
