Thank you for the kind review and so pleased you enjoyed the Waiheke experience. A wedding on an island is always a great experience and Waiheke Island more so - it is not called the 'wedding capital' for no reason. We are so pleased you chose Breakfast on the Beach Lodge to stay at but equally your choice of wedding... More

Stayed here in March between work schedules with my partner. This Lodge is a place I wish I had found earlier as it provides an experience that one should not leave too late. From the moment we arrived on Waiheke we had the peace, quiet, luxury, pampering anyone could only wish for including total privacy. The lodge looks like a... More

BotB is a lovely property, which is very well hosted by Maralyn and Ian. It’s in a very quiet location, right on the beach with stunning views. The rooms are large and comfortable, and have everything you’d need for a stay for a couple of nights. Breakfasts were beautifully presented – a work of art! There’s a hot tub in... More

We stayed for 3 nights with our dear friends. Couldn't ask for better hosts and the breakfasts were to die for. We didn't get a choice but were asked if there was anything we didn't like, We were presented with 2 courses each morning, one fruit and one savoury, very nice. Very large rooms and lovely bathrooms.

I stayed here at a rate of $750 night. There are only 4 rooms in this house. It is a beautiful property at a scenic location, but it is unfortunate that the owners do not take pride in being business owners. When I was there, all 4 rooms were occupied. I had requested and paid for a room with a... More
