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

We spent the weekend at Owhanake Bay Estate. It is quiet and peaceful, surrounded by not much more than green open space. The rooms are clean, spacious and full of light. A nice bathroom. It is a pleasant 20 minute stroll to the local shops and restaurants. Their taxi service is a real bonus for the times that you would... More

My husband and I stayed over for one night (away from the kids). The intention was to have a night of decadence and spoiling. Owhanake Bay Estate delivered just that! Mike was amazing. His attentiveness, welcoming nature and balancing this with privacy was perfect. Mike took us around the estate - his passion for wines, nature and life was enthralling.... More

We have stayed twice at OBE. Both times Christy has been the most accommodating hostess. (We have yet to met Mike as he's been away both times) :) Our first stay was in December 2009 for our 1st wedding anniversary and "baby moon". We stayed in the Tamure suite back then which is closer to the pool and jacuzzi. We... More

My husband came with me as I attended an academic conference in Wellington. He rarely gets a chance to travel with me so we stayed on an extra week and I researched carefully what we should do to make sure we enjoyed the best of the country in the cold season. I decided to make sure the last 3 days... More

We were fortunate enough to stay at Owhanake Bay Estate to kick off our NZ holiday to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary in Feb '13. The quality of the accommodation was absolutely superb, including a lovely warm spa bath on the deck and we enjoyed beautiful home-baked treats delivered to our suite each morning. Mike took great delight in telling... More
