“Sand between your toes” luxury – The Boatshed on Waiheke Island, 35 minutes by ferry from Auckland brings together chic accommodation and fantastic beaches with a sophisticated mix of vineyards, coastal walks, and alfresco restaurants. A little slice of bohemian life!


Whichever way you arrive on Waiheke be it boat, plane or helicopter there is nothing like landing on an island – with its relaxed pace of life and unpolished charm Waiheke offers a perfect start or finish to any New Zealand itinerary. Situated above Oneroa beach The Boatshed offers chic accommodation with the highest level of design and service detail, beautifully appointed guest rooms look out over the bay with plenty of alfresco spaces to enjoy your daily meals – walk on the beach, read a book in the sun, relax and be pampered.


“The Bach” – a word used to describe small holiday shacks in New Zealand, these are places close to kiwis hearts… places of sunny days and simple times. The Boatsheds rooms and suites all have a little bit of The Bach in them albeit with a little more comfort than most. Seven beautifully appointed spaces all offering privacy, sea views, open fires and the highest level of design detail – the beach holiday of dreams.


With extensive kitchen gardens, the chef and gardener work closely to grow seasonal produce to highlight the best New Zealand has to offer from the farm to the sea. Fresh, healthy modern cuisine that is only available to guests staying in house. We believe there is no such thing as a romantic table for 14 so there is no communal dining; tables are discreetly set around the property for guest comfort and privacy.


Owned by the same family for 35 years this property was developed by well known New Zealand designer David Scott as the perfect beach retreat, and is run by the next generation in the family along with a small team of dedicated professionals. The place is geared around doing very little, relaxing with a great book, enjoy a lazy breakfast, having a massage or taking a stroll on the beach – but with intimate knowledge of the island those that like to explore won’t be disappointed, from vineyards and beautiful coastal walks to soft adventure like paddle boarding and kayaking everyone’s taste are looked after.
