Enclosure Bay was a jewel of a find. As an indicator of how great the hosts are, we walked in the door to learn that we had been automatically upgraded to their balcony suite just because they were light on guests that day. The suite was amazing! Large and very spacious, with a bedroom, separate dining area / basic kitchen,... More

Just wish that I had been able to stay longer. A perfect place to relax surrounded by the most beautiful scenery from within the room and from the deck. Quiet , private and with hosts who are so willing to oblige. Elizabeth

Enclosure bay wants to be more a boutique hotel than a BB. And it s the reality. the place is really nice ( architecture, decoration and location). the room is large, the terrace is private, nice view) the bathroom is not really large. But we didn't opted for the suite. The prices are relatively expensive  ( in the range of... More

Everything was beyond exceptional. The location and views - incredible. The room quality - outstanding. Facilities - 5 star. Breakfasts on the deck overlooking the beautiful vista were unforgettable and a perfect way to start the day. Andy is brilliant. And his little mate 'Nigel' the dog was entertaining too! Andy was the perfect host, a feat made even more... More

And better than a 5 star hotel since there is nothing to beat the personal service provided by Andy! Nothing is too much trouble for him. The views are second to none, the rooms are new and spotless. Everything is provided, TV, DVD, fridge, washing machine, etc, etc.

What a place to start married life! We were lucky to have amazing weather for our entire stay and the views are spectacular, from back to Oneroa Bay, Rangitoto and out to Coromandel and Great Barrier Island. The room itself was beautifully furnished and equipped, light and airy and great views from everywhere. Andy was an excellent host and nothing... More

We found Enclosure Bay B&B on Web from Canada a year ago and we book already the 3 rooms of the hotel for the wedding of David, my partner's son, with a Kiwi girl on Waiheke island. We didn't regret it all and we had a marvelous week-end even with the Tropical storm Lusi around. The owner Andy and his... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
