We had a fantastic and relaxing two night stay at Enclosure Bay to welcome 2012!
We stayed in the Great Barrier Room which was modern, clean and very spacious! We were able to fully relax after a crazy Christmas. Internet access and sky tv to watch the boxing day test were a huge plus for us! There is also a well appointed kitchenette.
Andy&Jenny as hosts were so helpful! Nothing was too much trouble and delicious breakfast gets delivered each morning at your request.
Location wise, you get stunning views! You aren't in walking distance to shops but our past experiences on Waiheke (without a car) is that everything is spread out, such that nothing is really easy/enjoyable and in walking distance without a car, particularly if you want to winery hop. For this reason we took a car but by the sound of things Andy will help you out if you don't have a car or want to have a few drinks.
Andy was also really helpful in suggesting places to visit based on our love of reds!
A great stay and highly recommended!

- 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.
