I was expecting something quite unique or luxurious. But it isn't. A pleasant place with pleasant decor featuring an abundance of cushions and restful seaside colors. I'm really stretching to think of anything to compliment about it. Dinner was included for one night of our two night stay. It was extremely straightforward, with no options and wine not included. Breakfast can only be called boring. The view is nice but nothing amazing by Waiheke standards. The staff are fine. Over all it is incredibly expensive for something very ordinary.
Loved it! Stunning setting and totally relaxing.
Have been wanting to come here for a long time and I don't know why I left it so long! We decided to treat ourselves on my birthday and we weren't disappointed, a stunning setting just above Little Oneroa. The Boatshed really is a place to let all your cares just slip away. Jonathan, Martin, and their staff are all fantastic, attentive without being intrusive. The decor is beautiful and as a gardener myself, I have to say the vegetable garden is impressive. Wonderful stay. Thank you!
a truely exquisite experience
A very conformable well run establishment. Extremely clean and well looked after with a lot of thought going in to the decor. The meal was excellent and the service very good. The way the owner is always available but not in your face was superb.
A complete "wow" experience
My husband and I were blown away by every facet of our short but incredible stay at the Boatshed back in February: the stunning view of Oneroa Bay, delicious meals with the freshest vegetables we've ever tasted, and the relaxing, friendly vibe shared between both the staff and other guests. Jonathan and his team (Martin, Vessela, Daniel, Caroline, Joseph, etc.) really do a great job of making everyone feel right at home! We highly recommend staying in the Lighthouse, which has a third-story sun room with walls of glass doors that can be folded up to catch the warm ocean breeze, and a dumbwaiter for the most romantic private dining experience ever! Little Oneroa Beach is just down the hill. From the beach, there's a stunning hike out to Fisherman's Rock. Another must-do is renting a picnic truck from the Boatshed and driving around the more remote side of Waiheke Island. I also can't forget to mention the Boatshed's four-legged ambassador Harry who attends to guests when he isn't napping on the couch or out for a car ride. That dog sure has the Life of Reilly as we did during our three days in paradise!
Can I give it 6 Stars?
What a great place! We arrive to New Zealand after a long trip from New York and spent the first evening at the boat shed welcomed with open arms with a. Fabulous cappuccino. The food at the boat shed was incredible the presentation was beautiful and everything just melted in your mouth. We spent the day wandering around walking to Vineyard having lunch, going to the art galleries. Next day we walked around some trails on the island as well before I ferry back to Auckland We highly recommend The boat shed. Our only regret was we stayed only one night.
