“Fantastic weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Fantastic weekend at Boathouse Row. Setting was stunning. Apartment was first class and private, breakfast fantastic and Gem the lab and Mr Clippy the pet eel very welcoming. Thanks for the hospitality Toni, Taylor and Lance. We had a memorable weekend.

Stayed February 2014

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Toni was so lovely and this was the most idyllic place for a weekend getaway. Cant recommend enough and worth every cent as a treat weekend! The breakfast the following morning was incredible.The lake is the most gorgeous outlook and we couldn't get enough of it. We loved taking advantage of the local places to eat too – Tasting shed was a great place to visit for lunch before checking in.

Don’t forget to take your togs, the spa is also lovely!

A magical place! Absolutely relaxing and peaceful! The lake was beautiful, the breakfast was amazing and Toni was a wonderful host! We couldn't have found a more perfect place to spend our Wedding Anniversary. We look forward to coming back to stay soon!

What an amazing place, lovely location on the water. Perfect for a romantic weekend away. The breakfast was excellent with pastries and poached fruit. Didn't use the bath but it looked impressive but we used the spa overlooking the lake which was nice.

Wow, what a beautiful spot built beside and over a lake....and less than an hour from Auckland city.
Toni made our stay a fantastic experience to booking a perfect dinner at 'The Tasting Shed' restaurant and organising our transport to and from so we could enjoy both the food and wine!
We loved a play on the lake in the row boat but not quite game enough to swim with their pet eel which can be fed by hand.
Breakfast was delicious with the calming view over the lake.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: There is only one room/suite and it's amazing with a view sitting from the bed out over the lake...

Beautiful and private, boathouse row really did blow my expectations.
The location speaks volume, over looking your own lake it's the most peaceful way to start the day. Not to mention the beautiful breakfasts served in the sunny conservatory or on the patio over looking the lake. Complimented with home made deliciousness you'll be wishing breakfast was served 3 times a day !
For us it was just what the doctor ordered ! Cannot wait to have an excuse to go back, thank you Toni and Gem for your hospitality :)

Amazing spot! So close to Auckland but you feel like you're somewhere miles away. We had such a relaxing time and fantastic recommendations for restaurants nearby - fabulous food! Toni couldn't do more for you, very lucky. Gorgeous & in-theme interiors, most comfortable couches and bed, amazing bathroom. And only the ducks and birds to wake you up - bliss!
