Food was so fresh at this boutique hotel there was no need to head into the town! You see Jonathan, the owner, has his own vegetable garden out the back and just about everything from here ends up on your plate! So tasty. There's a little bit of Petersham Nurseries about the Boatshed but except from being by the Thames,... More

The Boatshed has a magical balance that is both relaxed and elegant: stunning rooms with great attention to detail; delicious food and wine; a high level of service without being intrusive; a breathtakingly beautiful location; lots of personal space; idyllic outdoor seating areas; and is totally relaxing. This is definitely a beautiful retreat with impeccable taste and style that I... More

Jonathan, together with his team (Lily & Fred) could not have done more to make our stay relaxed & pampered. Despite arriving well before check-in (8am), the team turned our room around, allowing us time to enjoy a outstanding breakfast of muesli, fruits and fresh breads - followed by poached eggs and ham hock. Throughout the rest of our stay... More

The Boatshed nurtures all the senses. Amazing staff, romantic accomodation. Beautiful food. Caring, attentive owner who simply doesn't miss a beat. Jonathan and his caring cast made us feel like we were simply friends who were visiting and staying for dinner. Will go back again, and again.

Beautiful small hotel tucked a ferry ride away from Auckland. Very welcoming host and staff. The food was excellent the only drawback was everyone has to eat at the same time, albeit on different tables. It did feel a bit like school dinners. Lovely walks in the area and beautiful vinyards.

My husband and I stayed at The Boatshed from January 1 - 3, 2016. We arrived for our first visit to Waiheke Island, on a very wet and windy day & it was like arriving at a haven to pull up to The Boatshed. We were warmly greeted, offered a hot drink and made very comfortable while our room was... More

My husband and I stayed at the Boatshed for 2 nights for our honeymoon. It was very quiet and quaint, and the food was amazing! The staff was so nice, offering to drive us to places we needed to go and making reservations for us when we needed to. It was a great way to kick off our honeymoon in... More

My sister and I stayed at the Boatshed in early November 2015 - this was our second time. The exemplary service, delicious breakfasts, healthy lunches and sumptuous dinners were fabulous. We could not fault a thing. The vegetable garden was still beautiful with the lovely addition of a lookout with comfy chairs and I noticed other new bits and pieces... More

A beautiful spot to spend our 10 year wedding anniversary. Lovely staff. Nothing is a problem and the food is divine. Our boat shed was luxurious and everything has been thought about including beach bag with towels, hats and sunscreen. A relaxed and luxurious venue which was a real treat!

We were met at the ferry and taken to this beautiful clapboard grey and White House overlooking the bay. Sumptuous breakfasts of fresh produce carefully and prettily presented. Amazing attention to detail in the relaxed atmosphere that just felt like home. Gorgeous tower room - on 3 floors. We didn't want to leave it. Dinner was amazing, canapés by a... More
