The Boatshed is perfectly situated above a sun-drenched bay on the island of Waiheke, off the coast of Auckland. This luxury boutique, seaside hotel is inspired by the early 1900 boat sheds that scatter the country’s shores.
The Boatshed offers five luxury suites and two beach bungalows, each individual in design and style with panoramic views over the ocean. Together they form an eclectic mix of different spaces and room types each offering a unique and different experience from the three-storey Lighthouse with spiral staircase to the beach hut style Boatsheds and spacious Bungalows with freestanding baths and open fireplaces. Whatever you choose, the rooms here are relaxed, beautifully appointed and very stylish.
Dining is a relaxed affair – indulge in a memorable Mediterranean feast, something hearty in front of the fire or a private seafood platter for two on the balcony. Whichever you choose, expect fine hospitality and exceptional service.
Waiheke Island invites you to rediscover the simple pleasures. Take a stroll amongst an eclectic mix of award-winning vineyards, sophisticated alfresco restaurants, artists’ studios and galleries or along one of the many deserted, golden, sandy beaches.
When to visit
Make sure you borrow the Boatshed's open top Mini Moke jeep and explore the island's beaches and vineyards under your own steam.
The Boatshed is located on the corner of Tawa and Huia Street in the eclectic village of Oneroa. Just steps from the white sands of Little Oneroa Beach in the Hauraki Gulf, on Waiheke Island. Off the coast for New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland.
The Boatshed is just over a 2-hour trip from Auckland International Airport. The hotel is a 10-minute helicopter ride or a 35-minute fast ferry ride from Downtown Auckland.
