This is a belated review from our stay at the Boatshed in November 2015. There's not much I can add to all the superlatives already mentioned by other reviewers, except to say that my husband and I have stayed in some lovely hotels in many beautiful parts of the world and the Boatshed completely tops them all. The price we... More

My sister and I enjoyed our second trip to the Boatshed in early November 2015. Thank you so much to Jonathan and his team for providing yet another outstanding and fabulous stay at the Boatshed. All meals were absolutely delicious and the gorgeous views are amazing - every attention to detail is considered. Thank you once again Jonathan and team.... More

Jonathan and his staff have created a magical oasis on a magnificent island. From the moment you walk in the door you realise the Boatshed is very, very special. By the time you leave (which you won't want to) you appreciate the level of detail, care and planning that has gone into creating this wonderful place for your enjoyment. Unless... More

Having stayed at The Boatshed a number of years ago, we were hoping that it was still world class. We were not disappointed...the room, the food and particularly the staff were top class and we look forward to a return visit in the near future.

I can't say enough about this magical place. We stayed in April for the last 4 nights of our honeymoon. You feel like you are staying at someone's private luxury beach house. The staff and service... amazing. Rooms... breathtaking and having dinner there cooked by a personal chef with ingredients grown in their garden. Nothing beats this place!!

We have been lucky to stay at the Boatshed on two occasions, and we always meant to write a proper review for everyone's benefit. The first visit blew us away - the understated wonderfulness of everything, cool and interesting design, so many subtle details that just work, having your wishes anticipated, brilliantly simple food, outstanding local wine (Obsidian Chardonnay) and...

We stayed in the Boatshed for our honeymoon and we had an absolutely amazing time. The owners were really friendly and helpful, pushing the boat out to ensure that we had a really special time. We were treated to delicious fresh snacks when we arrived and given excellent advice on how to spend our day (white sand beaches to ourselves... More

We only spent two nights. Wish we had stayed a month. We went upscale and rented one of the entire homes (cottages). Everything was perfect from the moment you arrived. The soft music vibe, the openness to the sea, the inviting staff, the gardener and owner. The breakfast was custom made daily farm to table (feet from the veggies) and... More

This venue presents a real problem. I am usually the harshest of critics, something must be exceptional for me to give it 5 Stars. Well what do I do? The Boatshed changes everything. Can I give 10 Stars?! If 5 is the maximum then everything else needs to move down 1000%. The accommodation, the food, the service, all perfect. There... More

Just back from an overnight stay at the Boatshed. We were blessed by the weather gods and had a perfect few days on Waiheke. We stayed in one of the 3 'boatsheds' and loved it. Compact but it has everything you need and is very tastefully decorated. Loved the Cape Cod chairs out front which were completely private. Didn't think... More

The Boatshed is a small luxury hotel on Wiaheke Island - sitting above the beach of Oneroa with extensive views out over the bay. Best described as "barefoot luxury", this seaside hotel and the island its on are a perfect reflection of the modern New Zealand holiday - with a high level of design detail, beaches, vineyards, galleries, and stunning coastal walkways make this little place the perfect tonic for those wanting to get away from it all. We look forward to seeing you soon... ... more   less
