This is our 2nd trip to Waiheke Island. On early March, we have stayed in the Little Barrier Room for one night at Enclosure Bay. We have chosen this place based on the advice here and it was everything we expected and more. Andy, who had Hotel management experience, puts the key abstracts of B&B, Hotel, and homestay services into managing this lovely place. Andy picked us up at the pier and dropped us off at a few place to introduce the island to us. He also suggested us to place to dine and helped us to arrange the wine tour on next day. As we decided to have a walk after arrival, Andy dropped us off at the town center and gave advice on the tracks to walk around the Island. He even offered to drive us to the Italian restaurant at the evening. As others mentioned, the Little Barrier room has the best view, 180 degree sea view. We have bought a wine, again suggested by Andy, and enjoy it with the great scene very much. Thank you Jenny & Andy and look forward to stay here again on our next visit, perhaps another 4 years, Andy.

- 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
