Firstly it must be said that this place is absolutely stunning, if somewhat overpriced when you stay during peak season which we did. The lighthouse room worked out at just over $1200 (NZD) per night, food not included. Having stayed in 5* accommodation all over the world, I did think this was rather over the top, as it was Waiheke...

We have travelled a lot and definitely would rate this as one of our favourite places to stay. The main reception/ dinning room is fab plus all the staff excel at customer service. Breakfast and dinner is very good with nearly all veggies grown in their own Garden allotment which is very trendy and well stocked with veggie. They gave...

We have just enjoyed two magical days on Waiheke, staying in this fantastic hotel. Jonathan and his staff have created a very special place - the ambience, setting, rooms, communal areas, the garden and nooks and crannies where you can escape for privacy and the food, which is to die for, all help to make The Boatshed amazing. Use one...

Lovely little boutique hotel on the edge of Oneroa. Nice laid-back vibe could disguise the fact that this place is run well & the customer is at the heart of things. We arrived early from the mainland on the day of our check-in, before heading out, but a coffee and some breakfast instantly appeared. Our boatshed room had lots of...

Exceptional stay. Nothing was too much for the fantastic staff. Great little hotel, suite, food and garden. Highly recommend the lighthouse suite if you don't mind stairs. Very relaxing, romantic and peaceful. Will be back!

Everything we read by other reviewer was true. There is nothing more we can say except to say as of October 2016 5 stars is definitely appropriate for The Boatshed. Spectacular room, fantastic food, gracious staff, and a host who does not miss a detail to make the experience unforgettable. Glad we splurged.

Congratulations Johnathon on a wonderful establishment. Beautifully presented with a wonderful team who all love being there and making everyone's stay so enjoyable. The presentation is wonderful, food fabulous, the attention all one would want and the views wonderful. And what a garden, producing much of the produce put on our plates.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Boatshed is a small luxury hotel on Wiaheke Island - sitting above the beach of Oneroa with extensive views out over the bay. Best described as "barefoot luxury", this seaside hotel and the island its on are a perfect reflection of the modern New Zealand holiday - with a high level of design detail, beaches, vineyards, galleries, and stunning coastal walkways make this little place the perfect tonic for those wanting to get away from it all. We look forward to seeing you soon... ... more   less
