On the beautiful, northern coastline of Waiheke Island, between Little Oneroa and Palm Beach, Enclosure Bay is a modern, architecturally designed, Small Hotel / Bed and Breakfast. We have two one bedroom suites and a King bedded room – all with private decks, air conditioning and facilities you would expect. Located just a 35 minute, ferry ride from downtown Auckland, (a few minutes longer on the car ferry), Waiheke Island is a tranquil, beautiful jewel in Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf. A ten minute drive from the ferry terminal at Matiatia will bring you to Enclosure Bay. Waiheke is renowned for its beautiful beaches and scenery, its vineyards, olive groves and native reserves with great walking tracks. The island is justly proud of its many excellent restaurants and cafes. Enclosure Bay is the ideal haven, where for a while, you can exchange the ‘every day’, for something special. Perfect for a honeymoon or anniversary celebration; for luxury, weekend breaks or just some timely R & R. We enjoy a wonderful setting, capturing the sun all day and providing panoramic views of the Hauraki Gulf and its islands. Uninterrupted views out as far as Great Barrier Island and Coromandel Peninsula to the east, Rakino Island, Little Barrier Island and the Noises to the north and the setting sun behind Rangitoto to the west. Your privacy and opportunity to take it easy, refresh and restore, are our priorities. So come to Enclosure Bay, relax, enjoy our ‘special place’ and watch the varied moods and colours of the Hauraki Gulf and its islands.

I did find Enclusure bay on the Internet many months ago and also had "some" mail contact with Andy during the past months, so there was a connection and also a expectation that this would be a very nice place. It was more than that - it was FANTASTIC! On the Internet Andy

Stunning location. We usually get out and about fairly quickly but we just sat on the large balcony and relaxed and had a glass of wine. Fabulous hosts. They organised our activities for the next day and organised a restaurant booking and taxi for the evening. Great food and

Yes this place is a little on the pricey side but so is everything on Waiheke Island. We stayed just one night and absolutely adored sipping wine and enjoying the stunning sunset from our room. Breakfast was fabulous and the hosts are just charming. Would definitely recommend.

We could not have picked a better place to stay on the island. Andy was super helpful in organizing the wine tour as well as cabs for dinners. The views are impeccable and the accommodations were very nice. We chose to end our NZ adventure here, and we wish we would have had

Hi Thank you for your question - We offer a complimentary pick up and drop off from the ferry - All you need to do is call us when you are about to board the ferry and we will be down to collect you. Kind regards Andy Enclosure Bay

Hi Sorry for the delay in getting back to you but for some reason your e-mail ended up in our spam filter. We are about a 15 - 20 min walk from Oneroa mostly down hill - a taxi or Bus back is normally a good idea. We are normally happy if avail,able to drop guest to Oneroa before 6pm. We are happy to cook a meal to serve to your suite but can't compete with the many great restaurants on the Island. Hope to hear back from you soon Kind regards Andy Osborn Enclosure Bay
