I came for a relaxing break and from the moment I walked in and saw the sea view I knew I'd come to the right place. The Boatshed was so comfortable with plumped sofas, piles of magazines and fresh flowers everywhere I felt at home. The food was wonderful: fresh, tasty and perefectly presented without being fussy. And for someone who lives in the city: being able to fall alseep hearing the surf break on the beach below was just heaven. I just wish I had booked to stay longer. Jonathan the host and his team (including Rupert the dog) couldn't have done more to make my stay any better.

We went across to Waiheke for a friend's wedding. Accommodation was in short supply so we had no alternative but to stay at the Boat Shed. Although the tariff was high at $810 per night we were prepared to give it the benefit of the doubt. The location is good close to Oneroa village, the view is pleasant overlooking Little Oneroa Bay. However when we arrived the tea cups had not been cleaned from the previous guests, we had no toiletries for the shower, i.e. soap, shampoo etc, no milk for our cups of morning tea, There was also problems with the pump for water on our wing. No one communicated to us there was a problem. We were also disappointed with the dinner we had the first night's stay, There was no air conditioning in the room, and we stifled all night. Another word of warning, there is a cooked breakfast included in your tariff, so don't wait to be asked, as this only happens when you have helped yourself with the buffet breakfast of toast, cereal etc.

My wife and i got married here on 25/10/08. We arranged it direct with Jonathan, having had no prior knowledge of the place at all.
Ignore the comments of the lady from Switzerland, they are completely off the mark. From the first email until the end of our stay we and our two friends lived like royalty. Jonathan and his father couldn't have been better hosts and helped make our wedding perfect.
The food was michelin standard. I simply can't praise the Boatshed enough and worth every penny. Factor into this review that the four of us are very hard to please!

If you love the cleanness don't choice Boat Shed.
the dog's owner stay always on the sopha of the lobby and its hairs is throughout , so if you seat on the char or on the sopha, you sweater and skirt will be cover of hairs's dog.
the food is very very very horrible, a black lady that do also housekeeper is the chef of the restaurant and she can't cook ggod plate.
the hotel is overprice, is a one star hotel service, stairs evrywhere, sofa not clean, sheet, full oh hairs , food horrible, stinking carpets, no swimming pool, no restaurant: you will have dinner in the entrance without windows, not in a restaurant.
don't provide room service,
Go there only if you love dogs.
