We had two wonderful days in the Manuka suite and left totally relaxed and at peace. We enjoyed the hospitality of the hosts, the vineyard and the wine, the bay location, the accommodation, the spa pool on the deck, not to mention everything else Waiheke has to offer including fabulous wine, food and scenery. Thank you !

Stayed here for 2 nights in March in the Tamure Suite Our impression is a little mixed. Pro.: Very nice deck with chairs and table and fantastic view over the bay. Very comfortable bed. Quiet location but only 1/2 hour walk to center of Oneroa. Nice freshly baked bread in the morning. Con.: Juice, spread, jam etc. in the fridge... More

We are very pleased that you liked our tranquil location yet close proximity to Oneroa Village, the beautiful view over the bay from your deck, the comfortable beds and the fresh pastries in the morning. We do try hard to please all our guests. We had a rare misunderstanding which meant your room was not serviced in the daytime, which... More

The host Mike was wonderful, he was attentive yet not obtrusive and gave us plenty of space to relax. His tour of his gardens was really fun where he shared his passion and knowledge for the place. The facilities were great, very comfortable, and a spa right outside. There are some great walks near by, not too hectic and the... More

My partner and I stayed here for one night on one of the package deals. We both really enjoyed it, the service was fantastic and the accommodation was perfect. We both would recommend this place to anyone and I will be returning. Lynda McHugh

We stayed 3 nights at Owhanake Bay Estate in the Manuka Suite, and wish we could've stayed longer. The suite was clean, comfortable and spacious and the hot tub on the deck exactly what we needed to relax and acclimitise to Waiheke Island pace after our wedding. The location is just far enough away from Oneroa Village to feel secluded,... More

We - my 9 year old younger son and me - relaxed on Waiheke Island for a couple of nights. We could not have chosen better by picking Owhanake Bay Estate. It was simply paradise: a very nice room with super comfortable beds, a private deck and spa, a delicious breakfast, close to everything, yet very quiet and secluded. Best... More

We stayed at OBE in the Manuka suite for an anniversary weekend celebration. My husband had chosen OBE based on its excellent TA reviews and because we were seeking, peace, quiet, vineyards, and a spa. It did not disappoint. Although there is no sea view from the Manuka suite itself, there is a sublime view down to Owhanake Bay from... More

If you wish to recharge in the most pleasant environment, with great people catering to your every whim, look no further. Owhanake should be your first choice. A beautifully run family operation with spectacular views, and an aspiring vineyard, we will no doubt hear more of in the future. My partner and I have a thing for excellent bathrooms and... More

I stayed here with my husband, sister and her husband who were over from the UK and we loved it. It was the most beautiful place I have ever stayed at. It was magical to sit within the vines and taste the special wine produced there & having breakfast overlooking the harbour was especially memorable
