Review of The Boatshed
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 10 Mar 2024via mobile
My husband and I stayed at The Boatshed for a night. As soon as we entered the property, we felt at home. The whole vibe is homely and cozy. We received a very warm welcome. Both of us are vegetarians and were made a custom meal as per our diet. The best part about the property is the serene and beautiful view right from our bedrooms.
Date of stay: March 2024
Room Tip: If you have any diet restrictions, inform the hotel beforehand.
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

What a spectacular place to stay. The hotel is beautiful and the views are stunning. Jonathan and his team are so friendly and charming. The breakfasts are fabulous, and the four course dinners were exquisite. Healthy, delicious, really top! We just loved our stay here.

If you’re looking for a genuine NZ experience where you stay at a gorgeous place with wonderful people and excellent service then take a serious look at The Boatshed. Jonathan and his team are a delight. We stayed in the lighthouse room and it was large, 3 levels with a spiral staircase and access to step outside. Make sure you stay for dinner you won’t regret it.

A true five star experience. From the welcome drinks, to the incredible views, to the perfect location, this is a top tier hotel in Waiheke. Walking distance to both the beach and the center of town. Our room was huge with an amazing shower and clear views of the ocean below. The staff was also excellent. Picked us up at the ferry stop and we never touched a bag the entire stay. Highly recommended.

Room tip: Make sure you go to the fairy stop in downtown Auckland and not Half Moon Bay. Both will get you there, but one is significantly closer.

Welcome to paradise! No kidding. In all our travels around the world, this is one of the best places we’ve ever stayed. Rich, warm, and comfortable. If it was a boat, it would be a luxurious private yacht with your own crew and chef. Dining is for hotel guests only, and breakfast and dinner are as good as most award-winning restaurants. There was fresh fruit, homemade cookies, and even Port wine in our room every day. Our sliding glass doors opened to a beach-style deck with teak lounge chairs and a view across the bay. The hotel even has its own little fleet of Boatshed Jeeps you can rent to tool around the island. We did not want to leave!

The Boasted was an excellent place to spend a few nights on our Honeymoon. Waiheke Island is a short trip from mainland Auckland by Ferry and easy to navigate. The staff, including Jonathan, Mila, Violet, and the rest of the team are extremely friendly and go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. The guest-count is more limited than a corporate hotel, so the staff learns your preferences quickly and treats you like a part of the family. Additionally, the food was FANTASTIC. We had reservations for all 3 nights during our stay and decided to eat not only dinners but breakfast and lunches on-site because the food was fresh and delightful. Highly recommend to anyone traveling to NZD to make stop for a few days in "the Hamptons/ Napa Valley of New Zealand".
